Drug addiction and alcoholism is on the rise in Newport Beach and is quickly becoming a national health crisis amongst men and women. Within the past decade, emergency room visits and deaths as a result of addiction have been steadily increasing. Addiction to prescription drugs, such as painkillers and opioids is rising at an alarming rate.
The Center for Behavioral Health Statistics and Quality (CBHSQ) reports that a high number of those in treatment centers report that alcohol is the drug they abuse the most, although there are many others who are stuck abusing opiates that don’t ever enroll in drug rehab. Addiction is considered a highly treatable disease by medical professionals, and recovery is attainable. However, most people need help during recovery and will be more successful when entering a treatment center or drug rehab.
