Where is Addiction Treatment Located in Miramar, Florida?

According to the Florida Alcohol and Drug Abuse Association, Florida has experienced rising opioid overdose rates since 2013. In fact, between 2019 and 2020, there was a 53% increase in fentanyl-related deaths in the state.3 In 2021, 775 individuals in Broward County died of a drug-related overdose. In 2022, 1,403 individuals visited Broward County emergency departments for non-fatal opioid overdoses.4

While there were 277 non-fatal heroin overdose emergency department visits in Broward County in 2022, opioids are not the only drug misused in the county. That same year, there were 184 non-fatal stimulant-involved overdose emergency department visits.4

Luckily, there are lots of rehabs in Florida, and there are 97 addiction treatment centers within 25 miles of Miramar.5 One of those is an American Addiction Centers (AAC) facility located in Hollywood. Recovery First Treatment Center offers a range of treatment programs—including medical detox, residential treatment, and various outpatient programs.

What is the Cost of Rehab in Miramar, Florida?

The cost of substance use treatment in and near Miramar varies based on several factors, including:

  • Your level of care. If you’re attending inpatient or residential treatment, which means you remain at the facility 24/7 for the duration of treatment, the cost is generally more than if you participate in outpatient programs, which allow you to travel to the treatment center for care but return home or to a sober living environment at the end of each day.
  • Your length of time in treatment. As you progress through your treatment, you may transition to different levels of care. The longer you remain in treatment, the higher the cost may be. However, studies indicate that the more time you spend in treatment, the better the outcome.
  • The amenities available to you. Some facilities feature pools, fitness centers, recreational excursions, private accommodations, or other perks. Generally, treatment centers that offer more than standard care cost more to attend but may also help you heal your mind, body, and spirit.
  • The location of the treatment program. The cost of living in the city may impact your overall expenses. Overhead fees, such as utilities, change from city to city. That affects how much it costs to staff the facility and run the rehab.

Does Insurance Cover the Cost of Rehab in Miramar, Florida?

In 2010, President Barack Obama signed the Affordable Care Act (ACA) into law.6 This legislation requires health insurance providers to cover certain services as essential health benefits. These services include behavioral health treatment, mental and behavioral health inpatient programs, and substance use treatment.7 Both employer-sponsored group health plans and policies available through the insurance marketplace are required to cover these services.

Additionally, the Paul Wellstone and Pete Domenici Mental Health Parity and Addiction Equity Act of 2008 (MHPAEA) is a federal law that generally prevents group health insurance plans and health insurance issuers—that provide mental health or substance use disorder benefits—from imposing less favorable benefit limitations than those imposed on other medical and surgical benefits.8

What that means is that the health insurance plans in the Health Insurance Marketplace offer coverage for substance use treatment. How much you pay depends on your specific plan. It’s best to call the number on the back of your card to understand the details and your financial responsibility in terms of copayments, co-insurance, and deductibles.9,10

The treatment provider you select can also impact your cost. For instance, in-network providers are treatment centers that your health insurance company has a contract with to provide care for its members. Typically, getting substance use treatment through an in-network facility means less out-of-pocket cost for you. On the other hand, an out-of-network provider means the treatment center is not contracted through your health insurance company. In choosing an out-of-network facility, you may have to pay the full cost of the services you receive.11

  • Medicare, which is accepted at 35 of the substance use treatment centers.

Types of Addiction Treatment Offered in Miramar, Florida

Drug and alcohol treatment looks different for each individual and progression through treatment may include multiple levels of care, including:

  • Detoxification. Medically managed detox may be the first step in the treatment for some. It allows the body to rid itself of the substance safely under the supervision of healthcare professionals, who can keep you as comfortable as possible as you experience withdrawal symptoms.
  • Residential or inpatient treatment. Some facilities use the terms inpatient and residential treatments interchangeably. That’s because they both require you to remain at the facility for the duration of treatment, where you may participate in individual and group counseling, behavioral therapies, psychoeducation, and medication if necessary. Where they may differ is in the setting. Residential treatment often refers to care that takes place in a non-hospital setting while inpatient care, in some instances, refers to treatment that takes place in a hospital.
  • Outpatient treatment. During outpatient treatment, you travel to the facility on a set schedule and participate in programming that looks similar to inpatient or residential treatment. Outpatient services are offered at varying levels of intensity—meaning you may spend different amounts of time in treatment each week, depending on the outpatient program. All outpatient programs, however, allow you to return home or to a sober living environment at the end of each day.

Your primary care physician, mental healthcare provider, or other addiction care specialist can perform a thorough assessment and determine the best level of care for you and your needs. Many treatment centers provide multiple services and levels of care. Within 25 miles of Miramar, there are 24 residential treatment centers and 79 outpatient programs.5

How to Find Rehab Centers in Miramar, Florida

Since there are a variety of options available, a practical place to start is by accessing a facility that provides the level of care you need—as determined by your healthcare provider. Additional things to consider include:

  • Does the facility accept your insurance?

  • What evidence-based therapies does the facility utilize?
  • What amenities does the facility offer beyond the addiction treatment?
