In Florida, we know all about prescription drug abuse, and we also know that heroin is the most popular alternative. After the Florida pill mill bust in 2010, millions of prescription pain pills were seized, hundreds of doctors lost their licenses, and new regulations were put on pharmacy’s and how many pills a physician can prescribe their patients.

The healing properties of nature, in relations to living a sober life, extend to the physical and mental aspects of our being and also provide us a living metaphor to be grateful for each day. Nature is resilient. It fights through what is ailing it and finds a way to overcome. The coping abilities of nature are something by which we should be inspired. Nature renews itself constantly, so it makes sense to look to nature for help in overcoming addiction, when personal renewal is needed most.

While it’s recommended that if you have a severe substance abuse problem you attend an inpatient program, there are alternatives out there that are less intense and aggressive that are more suited for those who are just in the beginning stages of their addiction and need support. This is where the term “outpatient” is thrown around.

Diving right back into your old routine after completing substance abuse treatment is not something recommended by anyone who has either been through treatment or works at a treatment facility. When you're coming up on your final days of rehab in Florida, it will begin to set in that you are indeed getting ready to leave the only structured environment that supports your recovery. That’s when sober living homes come in handy.

If you're suffering from alcoholism or substance abuse, one of the biggest mistakes you can make is not setting up an aftercare plan for when you leave treatment. During treatment, you'll create a plan of action for your post-rehab life, but without dedication, you're setting yourself up for failure. It's crucial that the person leaving rehab sets up some type of plan to ensure they'll stay on that road to recovery.
