The Jennifer Act Bill in Florida Will Help Save Addicts from Fatal Overdose, and Allow the State to Collect Data on Long Term Drug Treatment

USA (PRWEB) March 24, 2015

In response to the overdose death of her 29 year old daughter, grieving mother Sharon Blair has dedicated the last six years of her life to pass the Jennifer Act in Florida. The bill proposes to give family members the ability to impose state sanctified interventions for persons who are unable to take necessary action to protect their own self interests (compromised by addiction). TBN Weekly reports (March 18th) the Jennifer Act is presently Senate Bill 1340 and House Bill 1017. The act would allow addicts to remain in intensive care for a minimum of 14 days (completing a full detox cycle) as opposed to Florida’s insufficient Marchaman Act, which addresses addiction by observing drug addicts for three days (most do not complete a full detox cycle). Harbor Village Detox is a specialized inpatient medical detox center in South Florida, and supports the Jennifer Act’s attempt to lessen rates of drug overdose and provide immediate assistance to those in desperate need of addiction treatment.

A Harbor Village Detox associate supports the bill’s passing and comments, “[The Jennifer Act] proposal is something the state of Florida has needed for a long time. There’s no way for parents to get help for their children who refuse to get treatment themselves. This bill is an important step in preventing overdose deaths in families, where addiction is known. Blair’s case is particularly tragic, wherein she could not force a court to grant Jennifer into rehab. There’s no reason why any mother, father, sibling, or loved one should have to watch their loved one deteriorate from an untreated disease- because that’s exactly what addiction is. It’s like letting someone bleed out on the street. The Jennifer Act will help us stop the egregious rate of preventable deaths.”

The inpatient medical detox center, Harbor Village Detox, is dedicated to providing the apex in effective addiction treatment. The facility offers patients a spa-like environment to go through the typically painful withdrawal process; their instrumental, JACHO accredited, medical staff remains with patients 24/7 to ensure patients benefit from continual medical and emotional support. Unlike most detox treatment center, Harbor Village Detox offers group and intensive therapy to begin unraveling the chords of addiction.
