Hollywood, Florida Drug and Alcohol Statistics

The city of Hollywood is located in Broward County, which has experienced a rise in drug and alcohol-related overdoses and crime in recent years. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention:1

Cost of Drug Rehab in Hollywood

If you’re considering rehab, you probably want to know exactly what the costs entail. That depends on various factors, such as:

Treatment setting (inpatient versus outpatient rehabs) is the main determining factor, as the cost of room and board can be considerably higher than the therapy itself

The type of amenities you’re looking for, such as being able to use a fitness center and pool as part of your therapy

Length of time and frequency of attending rehab, as the cost tends to be per session

How you plan to pay for treatment, such as with your health insurance or a medical loan

Some ways to keep the cost of care down include moving to an area with a low cost of living, avoiding major cities, or moving close to friends and family so they can help support you during recovery. You could also look for alternative ways to raise money for treatment, such as by crowdfunding online or asking your relatives.

Low-Cost and Free Drug Rehab Centers in Hollywood

State-Funded and Sliding Scale Fees: If you’re one of the millions of Americans who are underinsured or have no health insurance, there are still options that can help. State-funded rehabs that offer free or low-cost care are the first place you can look and can be found by reaching out to your doctor or your local health and human services agency. They might be able to offer sliding-scale fees that are lower for low-income clients or scholarships that pay for all or some of the cost of care.

Scholarships: Reach out to the facilities you’re interested in, even if you don’t think you have enough funds to pay for the cost of treatment. Many centers accept Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services (SAMHSA) block grants, which enable them to offer scholarships for individuals who can’t otherwise pay for treatment. According to SAMHSA, there are five rehabs within five miles of downtown Hollywood, one of which uses block grant funding.2

Using Health Insurance to Pay for Treatment: Using your health insurance coverage is a great way to cover the cost of drug rehab in Hollywood. If you have health insurance through your employer or are signed up for a provider of the health insurance marketplace or otherwise, call the number on the back of your insurance card. They’ll be able to direct you to the programs that accept your insurance and let you know what services are covered and what your out-of-pocket costs would be.

Addiction Treatment Settings

Make sure to choose a rehab that has programming appropriate to your needs as well as your lifestyle.

Detox programs have the medical staff and facilities needed to make sure you can safely go through withdrawal with as few symptoms as possible.

Residential Treatment: Once you’ve finished detox, the facility will arrange transportation for you to enter a residential program if you so choose. Some detox centers are built within a rehab center, but usually not. If you’ve decided to attend treatment within your community, there are a range of outpatient programs available.


Partial hospitalization programs (PHPs): These are the closest outpatient option to residential care, with daily visits and medical supervision to get you through the worst stages of recovery.

Intensive Outpatient Programs (IOPs): If you don’t need daily treatment, look into intensive outpatient programs that have a minimum of nine hours per week but are split up over several days.3 IOPs tend to be flexible, giving clients a range of schedules to choose from.

Standard Outpatient: The final step down in the continuum of care is to standard outpatient programs (SOPs) that provide single visits per week, as well as regularly scheduled phone conferences with your therapist or addiction counselor. These programs typically ask clients to also go to a community support group and provide referrals for you to explore.

Specialized Drug Rehabs in Hollywood

In addition to rehabs specific to your stage in the continuum of care, there are specialized programs for different populations. If you want to attend rehab in the same social group as you, look for a specialty program:

Rehab for specific populations: Programs for veterans utilize trauma-informed care and life skills teaching in programs to help vets re-acclimate to society after war and addiction. These also tend to accept military health insurance and Medicare.

Faith-Based: Christian and faith-based programs focus on connecting you with God or a higher power as you journey toward recovery. These programs often include prayer, Bible readings, and fellowship with your peers in addition to treatment.

Telehealth: Telehealth alcohol and drug rehab centers in Hollywood offer care online through mediums such as your computer or phone. These programs can be convenient because they offer the same type of treatment as many outpatient programs without the need to leave the comfort of your own home.

Dual diagnosis: Dual-diagnosis care offers treatment for both substance use disorders and mental illness. Dual-diagnosis programs are uniquely equipped to treat those who suffer from mental illness and substance use disorders, or alcoholism.

Executive: Executive centers are tailored to your needs as a busy professional. These alcohol and drug programs often offer access to conference rooms, phones, and wireless internet to allow you to get your work done while also working toward your recovery.

Should You Travel for Drug and Alcohol Rehab in Hollywood?

coast of hollywood floridaIf you want to spend your time in rehab in a warm, sunny location that will enhance your healing, think about visiting Hollywood. This area of Florida is known for its lush tropical landscape, with mangrove trails, endless stretches of beach, and the thriving art scene. Residents and visitors alike enjoy spending time at the city’s most interesting locations, such as:

Hollywood also is conveniently located between major cities Miami and Fort Lauderdale, making it a comfortable place to nest when not exploring the east coast.

In north Hollywood, such as in the Emerald Hills neighborhood, residents love the beautifully manicured city streets and a variety of places to shop and eat, like the Yellow Green Farmers Market.

Boulevard Heights in the west is home to plenty of places to work, shop, eat, and play, including the Extreme Rage Paintball Park and the nearby Broward College South Campus. Further south is the Hollywood Hills and Lawn Acres neighborhoods, with big shopping centers as well as golf parks to keep you busy when you aren’t in treatment.

If you want to live closer to the beach, head east toward Hollywood Beach. This area is nothing but stretches of sand and glittering water, and it’s where the art scene thrives at locations like the Hollywood Art and Culture Center.

Alcohol and Drug Laws in Florida

To help protect residents from the harm caused by addiction, there are several laws in place in Florida.

Marchman’s Act: In Florida, you can be forcibly admitted into a rehabilitation facility if you pose a threat to yourself or others because of your drug use or alcoholism. Law enforcement must take you to court to get an evaluation, during which time you’ll be able to consult your lawyer or get a public defender. It should be noted that providing false information to law enforcement to accomplish an involuntary commitment of someone is a felony and punishable by a fine and jail time.

Naloxone Use Good Samaritan Law: If you’re in the presence of someone experiencing an overdose, you can administer Naloxone to them to reverse the overdose and prevent their death without being prescribed the medication yourself. Pharmacists can provide Naloxone kits and train family members and friends of people who are at risk of overdosing, in addition to emergency personnel and health care workers.

Federal Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA): Federal laws under FMLA require most employers to provide unpaid medical leave to employees without discrimination. If you need to seek treatment, you can take up to 12 weeks of unpaid leave in Florida, with the promise that your job or a similar position (at the same wage) will be waiting for you when you return.
