Finding Addiction Treatment Near St. Petersburg

It comes as no surprise that St. Petersburg is a popular tourist destination, especially considering it averages 360 days of sunshine a year.1 This city was founded in the early 1900s and today has a vibrant population of over 248,000.1

St. Petersburg is located in Pinellas County in Florida, and despite the regular sunshine, many residents experience challenges associated with substance misuse and addiction. For example, the Florida Department of Health reported that in 2019, nearly 21 percent of Pinellas county residents participated in binge drinking and that there were 546 accidental drug-related deaths in Pinellas county in 2020.2
