Drug Abuse & Addiction in California

California is well known for the cannabis-producing “Emerald Triangle” and the high THC concentration of its marijuana. However, the #1 drug problem is actually meth addiction. In 2010, almost 40,000 Californians were admitted into drug rehabs for stimulants alone, mostly including meth. This meth, which is both smuggled from Mexico and nearby meth-producing states, accounts for between 38 – 40% of primary admissions into drug rehabs.

Find a Drug Rehab in California

Of course, marijuana abuse is huge as well. Californians smoke more weed, but also use more drugs other than marijuana, than the nation at large. Crack cocaine hit poor, urban areas in the ‘80s and continues to be a major problem. Addiction to heroin, mostly Mexican black tar, is also rampant and part and parcel with the growing issue of prescription painkiller abuse.

Drug abuse and addiction is California’s number one premature killer, killing every 1 in 15 young adults by the age of 18
