If you are suffering from addiction and/or alcoholism in California, Recovery Hub can help you find the right drug rehab today! The Golden State has a drug problem, beautiful and wonderful as its sunsets and beaches may be. Around 51% of the California population (aged 12 or older) report using alcohol within the past month. More than 15% of the people in the age group of 12-17 years and around 56% in the age group of 18-25 years reported using alcohol past month, as well. Among people of the age group 26 years or older, the rate is more than 55%.
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.
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.
