Florida Opioid Addiction Treatment
Florida opioid addiction treatment is more vital than ever. In the United States alone, 2019 drug overdose rates rose to over 70,000 people. Moreover, half of those overdose deaths are opioid-related. Additionally, estimates show about 2 million people abuse prescription opioids each year, leading to overdose and other health problems. Those numbers have risen quickly over the past decade, making opioid dependence a top health crisis in the United States today.
The withdrawal symptoms experienced with opioids are very powerful and uncomfortable. The severity of these symptoms often push people back to using. The withdrawal symptoms associated with opioids include the following:
- Cold sweats
- Loss of appetite
- Muscle cramping
- Nausea and Vomiting

Opioid Addiction Care Includes Medication Assisted Treatment
Simple Path Recovery utilizes traditional, evidence-based treatment with a medical approach, which lends itself to focus on the mind, body and spirit. After receiving a full medical assessment from our medical doctor, a course of treatment will be determined. This may include medication assisted treatment if our medical team feels it is appropriate. This may include Buphrenorphine, Suboxone and other anti-craving medications like Naltrexone or Vivitrol. While this medical treatment has helped prevent overdose deaths and relapse, it must be used in conjunction with clinical therapy. As a full-service Florida drug rehab, we treat the whole person and know first hand that medication alone is not the path to lasting recovery, but a combination of medicine, spiritual awakening and behavioral therapy.
