What Kind of State Assistance in Florida is Available to Help Anyone Getting out of Rehab?

They say that all human emotion boils down to two base feelings: love and fear. They are both very extreme components that can be the root to any of our rational or irrational decision making. A fear of buses would give you the common sense to hop out of the way as one comes barreling at you on I-95. However, if you’re on the other side of that coin, a passionate love for buses may have you decide that jumping in front of and splattering all over the windshield was your destiny.

Fear and love lead us to strange places, but the first of the two is generally more controlling. For addicts and alcoholics, fear will drive us into a chemical dependency that will also keep us from taking the next step to better ourselves. We tend to build up these walls and create more problems than actually exist. Of those, financial is at the top of that list. Fortunately, there is State Assistance in Florida to help for such monetary issues that we use as an excuse to avoid ourselves.

Your “X” on the Map

The panhandle state, also known as Dante’s Inferno to most of us, has a lot of benefits when it comes to finding state assistance in Florida. Sure the summers are long and hot…..and the winters are long and hot, BUT it has its list of other pros and cons just like any other state.

South Florida specifically is the recovery capital of the world that has hundreds of addicts and alcoholics arriving in its airports on a daily basis. Walking down the sidewalk in a busy town like Delray Beach has it nearly impossible to avoid somebody who is in recovery. But the big question is: how did they make it work?

If we are fortunate enough to make it away from the dark side and be granted this opportunity for a new life, we might as well take advantage of all that is being offered to us. State assistance in Florida can be one of the key factors into keeping one’s head above water in this world full of sharks. If we’re lucky enough to get clean and not land in a pine box coffin, most of us find ourselves here in debt and needing serious fiscal help.

State assistance in Florida comes in big and small packages, but just has to be looked for. The southeasternmost state has an array of options to help those in early recovery such as pecuniary help for paying rent, utility bills, free food, medical care, and other forms that are made available. Existing options for state assistance in Florida include but are not limited to

  • Medicare & Medicaid
  • Florida Lifeline Assistance Program
  • Affordable Housing Programs
  • Florida Discount Drug Cards
  • Emergency Financial Assistance for Housing Program
  • Temporary Cash Assistance

The best part is that this list of help offerings doesn’t stop there. There are even more programs for state assistance in Florida that can tremendously help somebody in early recovery if they allow themselves to take advantage of such and are ready to come out from hiding under their rock.

Abracadabra

Life shouldn’t be as difficult as we choose to make it so much of the time. This statement couldn’t be more than true for addicts and alcoholics of course. We tend to find the thin line in things and then either try to tightrope walk over across it, or we pull out a large pair of scissors and snip away at the lines keeping us from toppling over and falling victim to life.  

So even though we are professionals at making bad decisions, allowing some state assistance in Florida to help us is a start to making good choices. As mentioned previously, so many of us arrive in recovery completely broken and with flies darting out of our wallets/purses. We had enough to pay for treatment and get our IOP or halfway houses set up, but now what are we supposed to do?

State assistance in Florida has guides such as the Florida Lifeline Assistance Program that can be a determining factor in somebody being able to maintain their daily practices. For instance, FLAP helps provide and option for those in need to receive free phone or cellular service. It’s a Lifeline program(phones) that provides either a $13.50 credit per month on a phone landline bill or it will provide approximately 60 free cell phone minutes per month. None of us should be surprised that phones are now a necessity to get by in this world. State assistance in Florida makes it so that we can still get by as we try to recover the broken pieces from our previous life.

There are always a lot of variables that can depend on whether or not somebody is eligible to receive state assistance in Florida, but of course, it’s better to check than to keep things like this in the unknown. With some state assistance in Florida- the person may need to be a resident for up to a year. Then there are other timetables that make it so a person just needs to have a legal mailing address and they can sign up for whatever state assistance in Florida that they please. The options are there for a reason. For us addicts and alcoholics, it’s about utilizing the help that is offered to us.

Real Client Testimonials

  • Before coming to coastal I was hopeless, helpless, and my family wanted nothing to do with me. It wasn’t the first detox I’d ever been to, but it was the only one who showed me so much love and compassion. They gave me hope. It’s hard to put into words the amount of gratitude I have for this facility. The employees were my family when I had none. The staff went out of their way to make sure not only were my physical needs taken care of, but my emotional needs as well. From the first phone call prior to admission, to helping me set up continuing care, they never missed a beat. Even going as far as to help me with my legal issues via Zoom court. This isn’t just a detox, they are the family I never had. All of the techs, especially Karen, are phenomenal. They will take the time to listen to you, laugh, and cry(if needed) with you. If you are reading this and you or your loved one is suffering like I was, go to Coastal Detox. The level of care is more than I could ever put into a review. It wasn’t the first detox I’d been to, but it has been my last; I owe them everything I have today, including my life.

  • Had a really good experience at Coastal. The staff really went above and beyond in helping me get in and gave me the respect l, space and care I needed after I first got there. As I started to fell better they encouraged me to take part in groups which helped get me out of my head and bring positivity and health to my thinking. They had a great massage therapist, who came daily and it was evident the nursing staff genuinely cared. Got to know some of the staff as well and I’m grateful for the cooks Joe and Chris. Those guys literally made us sirloins and pork chops for dinner. Also I gotta thank Chris and Chris for helping me get in and setting me up with a transition plan. Real grateful for that help, I’m not sure if it’s management intention to hire guys named Chris but they got a good thing going there. Overall, I’m clean and sober today and walking it out. Coastal gave me a base that set me up for the success that I’m walking in today

  • My family is very thankful for Coastal Detox. They have went above and beyond for my son a few times. Unfortunately he has needed their help more than once and they have ever turned their back on him, even when he was at his worst. Jeannie and Chris have been amazing and kept me informed through the entire process. They truly care about the addict and want to help them especially when it would be easy to give up on them. I had many detox facilities be rude and uncaring to me when I was searching for help for my son, but Coastal never did that to us. I don't know the names of all the team members that have helped my son but I know their are many and y'all are angels!! One day we will be able to pay it forward and help someone as you have helped us. Thank you for all you do!!

  • Can not say enough nice things about Coastal Detox & staff. Family member was there, told me five stars for the facility & all whom she interacted with. Said the facilities, ambience..., cleanliness, grounds, food, (think their chef is five stars), were all top shelf. All I interacted with personally & on the phone were patient, professional, responsive & caring. Kudos to so many: Jeannie Jones, Clinical Director whom I spent the most face to face time with: great oversight, patience & follow thru. Raquel Barker, Therapist was so understanding & on spot with her assessments/care. Kris Garrigus Admissions Director, another Coastal professional whom I cannot say enough nice things about, always so patient & responsive to my probably too frequent inquires. Not to be forgotten is Judy Tucker, Director of Operations she too so patiently "put up with me"
    I highly recommend Coastal Detox
