Addiction to Drugs Includes People From All Walks of Life

While the stereotype may reflect some sort of depraved criminal, the reality is that opioid users are most frequently everyday people.

Students, mothers, fathers, neighbors, and even doctors and lawyers are represented among substance-abusing persons.

Sadly, too many people allow the stigma associated with opiate use disorder to keep them from getting the help they need–help that may save their lives.

Here in the Southeast Florida area, there is a high incidence of substance use disorder. Access Recovery Solutions is here to help. If you know someone who is struggling with a substance disorder, make a difference in their life by getting in touch with us. We can help.

Anyone can become addicted. Drugs don’t care where you live or what you do. Taken in sufficient quantity, you will become addicted.

Opiates are addicting no matter how they might be used. While many people think of opiate users as “IV-needle users,” most are persons who have never considered using a needle. Substance use can grow from smoking, sniffing, and swallowing narcotic drugs.

Less than 10-20% of those needing help ever get it. Far too many persons experience a downward spiral until their lives are destroyed or worse. Sadly, death from overdose, suicide, or other medical complications ends the life of an opiate-using person.

What People Are Saying About Us Online

Amanda

I decided to come to Access after having HORRIBLE care at another facility. I read a review that said they were a “model clinic,” That review wasn’t wrong! From the first time I walked in the door, I was treated like a PERSON. Every single staff member that I have met has been compassionate and friendly. They truly care about your recovery! There’s also not a better person for the front desk. Sarah makes everyone feel welcome. They really are what other clinics SHOULD be!

Scott

This place is amazing. Everyone there from the girl at the front desk, security guard, nurses, and program director have all been so pleasant and helpful. It is by far the best program that I've ever been to.
