Substance abuse, in particular when it comes to prescription drugs, is on the rise across the United States, with an estimated 15 million Americans being addicted to prescription medicine – more than the total number of heroin, cocaine, and hallucinogens users combined. Known as a spring-break destination and a state of heavy drinking, with about 58 percent of people being regular drinkers, Florida also has a serious substance abuse problem, with almost 3,000 drug-induced deaths reported in the state on an annual basis. Organizations such as Ethema Health Corporation (OTCQB: GRST) are working hard to tackle the negative effects of addiction on the local population by offering some of the most innovative and comprehensive substance abuse treatments available across the state.
According to statistics from DrugRehab.com, almost half of people addicted to heroin and opioids in Florida are aged 30 and under, while more than 3,000 of the patients admitted to rehabilitation in 2015 statewide were under 18 years of age (roughly 10.6 percent of the total number of people who sought treatment for their addiction problem). In addition, Florida prescribes up to 10 times more oxycodone than all the other states combined and has one of the highest rates of overdose deaths in the country, according to the Addiction Blog (http://dtn.fm/PF6mi).
The startling figures explain why Florida is also a known center for rehabilitation facilities. Often referred to as the rehab capital of America, Delray Beach is home to multiple addiction centers, including Ethema Health Corporation’s Seastone Drug Rehabilitation and Alcohol Treatment Center. Opened in 2012, the facility’s comprehensive, holistic approach to substance abuse treatment and recovery has quickly positioned it as a leader in a highly competitive market, as well as a center focused on getting long-lasting results and the complete recovery of its clients.
The company’s unique approach revolves around the concept of treating not only the addiction but also any underlying disorders that enabled the substance abuse in the first place. Additionally, the center focuses on providing only highly customized and individualized treatment options, designed to ensure that each and every client gets a treatment plan tailored to their specific needs and problems.
Multiple treatment programs are available at the facility, ranging from drug addiction education and psychiatric evaluation to individual and group therapy, eye movement desensitization and reprocessing, yoga and art therapy, and more. All the treatments are results oriented and focused on the concept of inclusion, which means that throughout their rehabilitation process all clients receive core team support in the form of family or friends. The treatment plans available at the facility are designed to aid clients throughout their entire journey to recovery, from understanding and accepting their addiction problem to developing the necessary skills to live their lives after leaving rehab.
Ethema’s client-focused, non-judgmental approach is making the company a major provider of quality addiction treatment services in Florida. The company’s professionalism has also been acknowledged by the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations, which has granted Seastone its Gold Seal of Approval®.
