Florida’s Crackdown on Pill Mills Has Led to Rise in Popularity of Synthetic Drugs; Suncoast Rehab Educates on Dangers of These Drugs in Adolescents
Date:7/23/2014

tween the ages of 12 to 17. (2)

Upon learning these facts, Attorney General Pam Bondi temporarily outlawed the synthetic drug known as “bath salts.” She has also been working closely with the Florida Legislature to add more synthetic compounds to this outlawing order.

“We will do everything within our power to protect Floridians from the growing threat of synthetic drug abuse,” said Bondi.

Suncoast CEO Tammy Strickling supports Bondi in keeping synthetic drugs off the shelves, and specifically away from adolescents. “Parents and schools should look out for teenagers who appear to be severely agitated or anxious, prone to seizures, frequently nauseous, or are experiencing intense hallucinations,” said Strickling. “These symptoms, taken together, are often the telltale signs of those who are using synthetic drugs.”

Suncoast offers preventative drug education that teaches community members about appropriate responsive measures regarding synthetic drugs which have been gaining popularity in their areas. Strickling maintains that these man-made, synthetic drugs can have negative long-term effects, both psychologically and physiologically, on any adolescents who have been exposed to them. She encourages anyone who knows of someone using these drugs to call their local poison center immediately, and to also alert Attorney General Pam Bondi’s office right away.

“We have to work together with our state agencies to stop this deadly scourge on our Florida communities,” said Strickling. “I support Bondi in her efforts to make Florida safe from synthetic drugs.”

Suncoast treats clients who range in age from teenagers to geriatrics, and will continue to stand up against drug abuse and advocate for stricter laws related to this issue.
