The unknown makes this drug particularly dangerous and the risk of overdose is inevitable.

Prescription Drug Addiction
South Florida has an unfortunate history with prescription drugs. Most commonly known are the pain pill clinics that popped up several years ago and began prescribing opioid pain relievers judiciously, contributing to the opioid epidemic. However, Florida has come a long way and has shut down many of these clinics, charging countless doctors with legal suits and pulling their medical licenses due to negligence. Not to say that prescription drugs are no longer an issue. For Miami residents who developed a prescription drug addiction, a prescription drug detox program should be the first stop.
Street Drug Addiction
Miami is one for some pretty crazy headlines, and street drugs like “bath salts” are no exception. This is just one example of the many illicitly made drugs available on the streets of Miami. Getting help from an addiction treatment program is always recommended for people who have struggled with street drug addiction because there is a higher risk and more uncertainty when detoxing from these types of substances.
