Sovereign Health of Florida
Treating adults for mental disorders, substance abuse and co-occurring conditions
Florida is the Sunshine State. Despite its cheery name and its collection of tourist destinations, the local population still struggles with mental disorders and substance abuse. According to the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI), approximately 660,000 of Florida’s residents live with a serious mental disorder and about 181,000 children will grow up with serious mental health conditions as well. Furthermore, the issue of drug abuse is also a pressing problem. From the latest report of the National Survey on Drug Use and Health (NSDUH), 7.8 percent of Florida inhabitants acknowledged their use of illicit drugs in the past month. For some, an individual may be stricken with both a mental disorder and substance dependency simultaneously.
These statistics are coupled with some similar statewide trends. The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) found that between 2009 and 2013, an overwhelming 86.9 percent of individuals aged 12 and older with illicit drug dependence or abuse did not receive treatment for their problems within the past year. Many lives are negatively influenced by these unaddressed conditions, do not have access to adequate resources and are instead forced into incarceration due to their problematic behaviors.
In short, there are many obstacles that stand in the way of well-being for Florida’s citizens. Fortunately, there are local treatment providers such as Sovereign Health of Florida that provide the caring and comprehensive support that adults with psychological or substance-based afflictions need. If left unaddressed, even mild or moderate conditions can develop into more severe disorders. It is crucial to intervene before these issues get out of control. Do not wait to save a life in need, even if it is your own.
Sovereign Health of Florida includes facilities in Fort Myers and Pompano Beach. These locations provide Sovereign’s East Cost clientele with cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), psycho-educational support groups, experiential equine therapy and other expressive art treatments.
