The key to receiving addiction treatment is attending a top-notch and accredited detox center such as Path to Recovery. It’s important to understand that addiction expands far more than simply the physical component. It affects various individuals from the inside out. One of our main priorities will be to target addiction along with any underlying emotional and mental roots that have been attributed to it in the first place.
Addiction and substance abuse present to be a nationwide issue but in particular areas of the country, specific drug patterns and trends have been shown. The 2019 Los Angeles County Sentimental Community Site (SCS) Drug Use Patterns and Trends Report showcases the most current drug use statistics in Los Angeles County. Dr. Mary-Lynn Brecht of ULCA drafted the report, which was funded by the National Institute of Drug Abuse (NIDA) combined with the Center for Substance Abuse Research.
Meth is one of the most pressing substances of concern in LA County. Almost about half of individuals who have died of toxic substances tested positive for meth in LA County. According to a report in 2008, meth accounts for almost 33% of treatment admissions.
Prescription opioid abuse is the second most concerning issue in LA County. Prescriptions can include synthetics, opioids, and drugs such as OxyContin or oxycodone. In a study from Poison Control in 2008, data showed that 13.1% of all the calls were related to illicit substances due to prescription opioid abuse.
The percentage is referring to all the illicit substances combined resulting in 14.4%. Fentanyl has also increased according to the data in previous years in LA County.
While prescription opioids and meth are the most concerning drugs abused in LA County overall, marijuana is the most concerning substance among teenagers abuse in LA County.
There were 4,163 Poison Control reports made in 2018 resulting in 14.4% of illicit drugs being marijuana. About 26.1% of the calls were referring to benzodiazepines. Benzodiazepines can include sedatives/hypnotics, barbiturates, and tranquilizers. Many calls increased regarding heroin, cocaine, and methamphetamine in 2018.
According to federal data, drug overdose deaths have skyrocketed especially during the COVID-19 pandemic, claiming over 90,000 lives around the country last year. In California, the most dramatic step to take regarding drug overdose in Los Angeles would be for health and government officials to pursue the philosophy of harm reduction. Harm reduction seeks practical ways to reduce the harmful effects of drug use.
