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.

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.
