Drug Abuse in California
Since the early 1990s, when industrial-scale meth labs were found throughout the central valley of California, meth has been a huge problem for the state.
According to the 2009 Treatment Episode Data Set (TEDS), there were 49,135 methamphetamine admissions among drug rehab centers in California. This means that meth was the reason behind nearly 30 percent of the total admissions to community-based facilities in the state.
Fortunately, the number of meth lab incidents steadily decreased from 2008 to 2012, according to the El Paso Intelligence Center (EPIC). In 2008, there were 355 meth lab incidents reported by EPIC and by 2012 there were only 79.
Marijuana is currently legal for medical use in California. However, thousands of residents are admitted to drug rehab centers in California each year for non-medical use of the drug.
In fact, the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) reported that there were an astounding 33,946 marijuana admissions in 2009. SAMHSA also reported that admissions for marijuana abuse have been steadily increasing since 1999.
Admissions for alcohol treatment made up 23,068 of the 179,466 California substance abuse admissions in 2009, according to the TEDS. This number is relatively low compared to both the total number of admissions and the number of admissions for other substances.
However, another 19,674 admissions occurred for individuals who abused both drugs and alcohol.
In the past few years, California has experienced an alarming increase in prescription drug abuse. The most commonly abused prescription drugs are controlled substances like Vicodin, Percocet, OxyContin, Xanax and Adderall.
Supplies of heroin increased from 2008 to 2012, according to the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA). Officials believe this is due to increased heroin production in Mexico. California’s shared border with Mexico makes it easier for cartels to traffic heroin into the United States.
Treatment for heroin addiction is becoming increasingly necessary as more California residents abuse the drug. According to the 2013 TEDS, there were a staggering 29,400 admissions for heroin abuse in California. Perhaps most concerning is the increased heroin use among young teens within the past few years.
Club drugs like Molly and ecstasy are common among night club and rave attendees in California. MDMA is the active ingredient in both of these drugs.
According to the National Drug Threat Survey by the DEA, the Pacific region of the U.S., which includes the northern half of California, has seen a decline in the amount of MDMA seized from 2010 to 2013. However, the Southwest region, which encompasses Southern California, has experienced the opposite – a significant increase in MDMA seizures from 2010 to 2013.
Other dangerous drugs
Cocaine: According to the 2009 TEDS, cocaine was the drug of choice among 15,111 admissions to state-approved treatment centers in California.
Because cocaine is expensive and a large quantity is necessary to stay high for an extended period of time, it is typically abused by wealthy individuals. For instance, many celebrities in California have appeared on the news throughout the years for their cocaine habits.
At The Treatment Center, we can help residents of California recover from drug- and alcohol-related issues. Whatever the substance, we are prepared to provide detox and addiction treatment for individuals in need.
