Addiction Treatment California
Welcome to Addiction Treatment California - the web site designed and developed to give Californians all the most important, up to date and useful information on addiction, the causes of addiction and treatments for addiction.
The state of California has a population of more than 37 million (and growing), with an average age of just under 34, we have one of the most vibrant, cosmopolitan and tolerant societies anywhere in the world. But, of course, alongside an incredibly successful and generally pretty affluent population there are bound to be a few problems and issues, and addiction figures quite high on any list one might put together.
Whichever way you work the figures, there are huge numbers of people in trouble. With a population in excess of 37 million if 5 percent have an addiction of one sort or another we have 1,850,000 people who need information, support and help in our state.
Addiction California aims to be part of that help and support; helping to teach people about addiction by dispelling the myths, giving in-depth information about the most abused substances in our communities and tackling other addictions as priorities too.
Drug Addiction Detox and Rehab in California
Drug addiction is probably the single most difficult subject for parents to cope with. Seeing a loved one change from the out-going and high-achieving person that they were to a dull, wild-eyed, unkempt stranger is heart-breaking enough. But realizing that the change is caused by drug addiction at least opens a window to get professional and appropriate help.
So part of Addiction California is dedicated to keeping a directory of all the detox, rehab and recovery centers or clinics in reach of addicts and the people who are trying to help them. We check our directory every month to make sure that the information is up to date, that telephone numbers work, that clinic registration is valid and that we have added any new centers or clinics when they open, as well as deleting any that may close.
Alcohol Addiction in California
Alcohol addiction is often lumped in with drug or substance addiction, but as it is so prevalent and causes so much damage Addiction California decided to give it the space it needs and bring the profile of alcoholism higher up the scale. Most of the rehab centers in our directory have experience in treating alcohol addiction, and there are a few additional entries that work exclusively to dry out and detox alcoholics before starting long term treatment and rehab programmes.
