Florida Resources

Florida provides the residents of the state with many Medicaid, medicare and medi-cal programs to make use of. There is currently a drug epidemic that is ongoing for this and other states throughout the nation. Help is currently being considered to expand on these areas and fight the epidemic.

Treatment centers are now luring people in to provide them with the help that they need, but they don’t provide long-lasting results. This causes the person to keep coming back every time they relapse, which is then making the center more money. Due to this, the state is now considering changing the regulations and standards that they have to follow to provide the best care.

Search through the resources that are provided below to find the information needed to get the help you need. Those that have Medicaid, mediare and medi-cal can benefit from the programs that are below, not those that have private insurance coverage.
