Lake Worth is a small city nestled next to the large, wealthy hubs of Palm Beach County, including West Palm Beach and Boca Raton. While it is very close to these affluent neighborhoods, Lake Worth has little else in common, with a much more diverse, working class and poor population as well as far more urban blight and poverty.
Economic recession and foreclosures have been found to be a tremendous contributor to substance abuse and behavioral addictions. Stress, anxiety, unemployment, and poverty drive people to use drugs every day in Florida. Many times individuals start abusing drugs and or alcohol in an effort to forget his or her hopelessness only to get the worse end result which is an addiction. Soon, whatever miserable condition the person lived in before seems like a distant dream compared to the suffering and hopelessness that so many alcoholics and narcotic addicts experience.
Further compounding the situation is a society that takes the wrong approach to drug abuse. Drug addicts are often afraid of looking for help because they are afraid they will go to jail or that they cannot be cured. The people of South Florida see drug addiction every single day, driving in their cars or walking through downtown areas, and for the most part it is ignored and unchallenged. Law enforcement often treat drug abuse problems solely as a crime and do not consider how important treating addiction problems are over prosecuting addicts for drug crimes such as possession.
What does work is too often ignored: professional drug and alcohol rehabilitation services. Everything from drug detoxification to re-establishing connections with society are made possible through drug rehab assistance. Do-it-yourself drug addiction treatment fails as much as 75% of the time or more; but a recovery that is encouraged by a community of rehabilitating addicts and professional counselors is far more likely to succeed. One of the reasons why drug and alcohol rehab can be so effective is that our addiction treatment centers are replete with a variety of therapies and recovery treatment programs. Treating psychological needs and cravings often need to be approached from different angles, such as group and individual psychotherapy, yoga and family counseling - and a good drug and alcohol rehab facility plans and implements all of these addiction treatment therapies into a patient's treatment program.
