Los Angeles, CA, is known as a city where dreams come true and there are limitless opportunities, but alcohol and heroin addiction has been ruining the dreams of the citizens for years. In Los Angeles, CA, the county ran statistics for nine years between 2000 and 2009 of drug-related deaths, and they found that most of the people had prescription drugs in their system. Of the 61% of people with some type of prescription narcotic in their system, 96% tested positive for more than one of these medications. With statistics like that, having a quality alcohol and heroin addiction rehab is vital to sustainability of a city.
Many people don’t see the direct relationship between an alcohol addiction and heroin addiction, but this is because they don’t realize how progressive addiction can be. Alcohol is a depressant, and many alcoholics turn to prescription painkillers to receive the same high they get from drinking. In 2012, there were more than 2.5 million prescriptions given out for hydrocodone, and prescriptions for codeine and oxycodone were surprisingly high as well.
More and more people in Los Angeles, California, have understood that they need the help of a rehab in order to put an end to their addiction. The numbers of who checked into rehab for opiate addictions in Los Angeles, California, have been on a steady rise since 2005. Many of the people who go to rehab for a prescription opiate addiction have since progressed to heroin, which is a cheaper, stronger form of the drug.
Medical detox is the highest level of care when you enter a treatment facility because it’s important to ensure that you’re as safe as possible while you lose your chemical dependency. Detox will involve a medical staff of doctors and nurses monitoring you around the clock. You’ll be provided with detox medications, or you can choose to do a holistic detoxification.
Once you’ve started to show signs of better mental and physical health, you’ll begin rehabilitation. This is a chance for you to start healing your mind, body and soul, which is why it’s best to leave Los Angeles and the state of California when you start treatment. Recovery from addiction is hard enough because you’ve been turning to mind-altering substances to deal with all of your issues for so long, and it can be even harder when all of your triggers are within miles of the facility.
Going to a quality addiction rehabilitation center is an opportunity for you to begin a new life. Your life won’t be perfect in one day, but as long as you stay vigilant about your recovery, the sky’s the limit when it comes to the gifts you receive in sobriety.
