People know Daytona Beach, Florida, as the location for some of the best car racing in the country. With its 23 miles of white, soft sand on the shore to the bright, green fairways of the LPGA golf courses, Daytona Beach seems like a great place to visit or live. Behind that sparkling, sexy facade lies a substance use problem that persists.
Drug trafficking is also a problem for the city and Volusia County, where it is located. As in other parts of Florida where major shipping ports are located, Daytona Beach’s Port Orange is a factor in the distribution of cocaine, heroin, and fentanyl. They are no strangers in the opioid epidemic and addiction that overcame most major cities in the state.
The National Institute on Drugs (NIDA) stated that in 2017, Florida providers wrote 60.9 opioid prescriptions for every 100 persons. The Daytona News-Journal reported in 2019 that there were “300 combined deaths in 2017 and 2018 in Volusia alone” from opioids and other drugs and alcohol use. Another article relays that law enforcement and first responders used naloxone, a drug that reverses an opioid overdose, 650 times in 2017.
Those figures might seem daunting, but there is hope for people who are struggling with substance use disorders. One of the highest-rated addiction treatment centers is within a short drive of Daytona Beach and Volusia County. Harmony Hills is a quiet, country retreat located in Altoona, Florida, about an hour north of Orlando.

People who seek substance use disorder treatment work with clinicians and therapists to create a recovery plan that will be the best fit for them. Long-term sobriety is attainable if a person in recovery stays in treatment for 90 days or longer.
Your chances of succeeding in addiction treatment and having a healthy life in recovery can increase if you follow the course to a sober life.
