If you’re struggling with addiction, there’s probably not much you feel certain about. It’s totally understandable to be worried. Substance use disorders can consume a person’s entire life and leave them in a state of hopelessness. It’s important that you understand there is always hope. No matter how long you’ve been abusing drugs or alcohol, you can get better. All you need is a strong desire for healing, help from a dedicated recovery team, and a supportive peer network.

Lehigh Acres Addiction Statistics

As part of Lee County, Lehigh Acres is experiencing rapid population growth. A major downside of this is that it seems to have caused a sharp increase in substance use disorders.

Some areas in Lehigh Acres are unfortunately underdeveloped, which can make the population more susceptible to behavioral health issues. For example, there are long distances to travel between home and healthy food stores. There are also zero highly rated schools in the area. The result of this is lower education levels and less healthy lifestyles, which ultimately increase the likelihood of addiction.

According to data from the Lee County government, there are also high levels of homelessness and a large number of overdoses in Lehigh Acres. Another worrying trend across the whole state of Florida is the sheer number of drug overdose deaths. In 2015, there were 2,755 recorded deaths where drug use was listed as the main cause. In December 2019, this had more than doubled to 5,526.

Methamphetamine Use Is Increasing in Florida

Methamphetamine is causing major concern across all of Florida, including in Lehigh Acres. Although meth use in the state is slightly lower than it is across the entire nation, it’s been rising rapidly since a low point in 2008. This recent rise in use is also associated with a higher rate of overdose deaths as a result. The FADAA has ascribed this to the increase in concurrent heroin use, which has gone from 5.26% in 2006-2007 to 26.3% in 2017-2018.

Outpatient Drug Rehab in Lehigh Acres

While statistics show the extent of harm drug abuse is causing in Lehigh Acres, there is always help available. If you’ve struggled with a very severe alcohol or opiate use disorder, you might need to attend a detoxification center before joining one of our outpatient programs. We are the next step down in structure from inpatient rehab, but we also provide accommodation.

Intensive Outpatient Program

An intensive outpatient program is an ideal step down from residential rehab, but it’s also the first step on many people’s journey to recovery. During an IOP, you spend eight to 16 weeks attending the clinic three times a week for three hours a day. During this time, you’ll attend group therapy, family therapy and individual counseling sessions and go on awesome adventures. You can even come to IOP sessions in the evenings on Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays.

General Outpatient Rehab

General outpatient rehab is the final step before the aftercare and maintenance phase. In a GOP, you visit the clinic once a week for two hours. You’ll attend a mixture of group sessions, family therapy, experiential therapy and individual counseling. This normally lasts for a month. However, addiction is a chronic disease and does require strict maintenance, so some people continue to attend indefinitely.

Sober Living in Lehigh Acres

In addition to GOP and IOP services, we have two sober living homes in Fort Myers, Florida. They provide a safe and healthy environment for you to make the necessary lifestyle changes and learn the value of self-care. If your home life is fraught with triggers or the people you live with aren’t constructive, sober living can be the difference between failure and success in a recovery program.

Rediscover Florida’s Beauty

We believe that adventure therapy days out are some of the best ways to reconnect with your peers and the beautiful Florida landscape. Drug and alcohol addiction are all-consuming diseases that can render you lonely and stuck. The illness tends to steal people’s hobbies and passions from them, and adventure therapy is a great way to rediscover the joys of sober life.
