Drug Rehab Centers in South Florida Cutting Back

Last week, Broward County auditors made a report that states Broward Addiction Recovery Center is being overspent upon immensely. Broward Addiction Recovery Center is a group of addiction treatment centers throughout the county. These drug rehab centers service people not just from Broward, but the entire South East Florida area. The auditors for the county determined that Broward Addiction Recovery Center is spending almost twice the national average on both round-the-clock inpatient care, and residential treatment programs.

The Broward Addiction Recovery Center insists that it is expenditures are warranted, due to higher drug abuse in Broward County and treatments that are more comprehensive. Because of this, the Florida substance abuse center is calling for a private auditor to conduct a new review of their programs. However, this news comes at a time when Broward County must cut $100 million in its budget.

Another factor facing South Florida drug rehab centers comes in the form of state cutbacks. As soon as July 1, substance abuse treatment centers all across Florida will be experiencing the effects of state budget cuts. Many will be forced to close their doors if they do not find private funding.

South Florida drug rehab centers will be feeling the effects of these fiscal cutbacks in the coming months. Centers like C.A.R.E. Florida in North Palm Beach could experience a large influx of those needing substance abuse treatment and counseling. Overcrowding could occur in Miami-Dade and Palm Beach Counties.
