Florida Detox Centers Face Big Challenge As OxyContin Addiction Deaths Soar

Florida detox centers around the state stand ready to help people suffering from OxyContin addiction take their first step towards recovery. But although dozens of Floridians take that vital first step every day, the death toll from OxyContin addiction continues to escalate. State Rep. Kelly Skidmore (D-Boca Raton) says at least nine people die every day in Florida from prescription drug overdoses. These tragedies almost always involve prescription narcotic painkillers like OxyContin, or oxycodone, its generic active ingredient. But little effective action has been taken to stop the carnage. "If nine manatees were washing up on shore every day in the state of Florida, you better believe there would be an outcry," Skidmore said in a recent TV news interview. Skidmore and other state legislators are pushing for tougher legislation to control pain clinics, but no effective action has yet been taken. Florida's new Prescription Drug Monitoring Program, still in its infancy, might help reduce OxyContin addiction and death if its requirements are extended to include Florida's ubiquitous "pill mills".

If you suspect that you or a loved one has an OxyContin addiction or dependency problem, DO NOT WAIT!

Our peaceful Florida detox facility offers a medically-supervised, safer and more comfortable OxyContin detox program.

Florida detox centers face a monumental challenge

Skidmore, who represents parts of Palm Beach and Broward counties, is well aware that Broward is the major hub of Florida's prolific pain management clinics or "pill mills", as they're called. Dozens of narcotic painkiller-pushing pill mills in Broward are at the heart of the epidemic of OxyContin addiction and deaths. "The top 50 dispensing physicians of oxycodone are in Florida, all 50," said Skidmore. "Around 40 of them are in Broward County." One media report said that 85% of all oxycodone dispensed in America comes from Florida. In 2008, some nine million oxycodone pills were prescribed just in Broward County alone. Thousands of people from all over the eastern US converge on Florida to "score" easy prescriptions for hundreds, sometimes thousands, of pills, according to the police.

The major problem is OxyContin addiction and abuse

Rep. Skidmore and everyone else involved-from the Department of Health to law enforcement to hospital emergency departments to Florida detox specialists-will tell you that the major problem is OxyContin addiction and abuse. And in spite of public demonstrations and widespread media attention to the problem, the staggering fact remains: Florida is the OxyContin-pushing center of America.

OxyContin addiction can strike anywhere, at any time. OxyContin addiction has no respect for age, race, gender or social status.

At Novus you are assured of caring medical attention 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and one of the most advanced OxyContin detox programs anywhere.

Pasco County Florida detox center offers hope for OxyContin addiction

In spite of heroic efforts by Florida detox centers to turn back the rising tide of OxyContin addiction, Florida's pill mills continue to spread their poison. An avalanche of addictive drugs from Big Pharma, pushed by dozens of unethical, money-grubbing doctors (simply drug dealers with a degree), have created a tidal wave of addiction and death. Meanwhile, Novus Medical Detox Center in Pasco County is successfully treating OxyContin addiction on a routine basis, and the word is getting around. The Novus program is the complete reverse of the relatively hit-or-miss "one-size-fits-all" detox programs commonly found across the country.
