Much like many other cities nation-wide, Compton, CA, which is a city located in Los Angeles County, has experienced the negative consequences of drug and alcohol abuse.
Between 2012 and 2014, an average of roughly 1.8 million LA County residents aged 12 and older reported engaging in past-month binge drinking. Further, about 704,000 people in this age group reported past-month marijuana use. An average of about 702,000 residents struggled with a drug or alcohol addiction in that time frame, but only a fraction of those people sought help in the form of treatment (an average of 39,409 between 2012 and 2014).1
There may be many reasons for failing to seek treatment. Some people may be in denial, others may be unable to afford it, others may not know what their treatment options are, while others may be afraid of the unfortunate stigma that is sometimes attached to substance addiction.
Many people struggle with drug abuse. Expanding detox and rehabilitation options and removing stigma from asking for help can save lives and improve people’s quality of life. If you need help due to alcohol or drug abuse, local options are available. Call our helpline to learn more about these treatment centers, as well as others throughout the country.

Phoenix Rising is more than a treatment facility, it is a safe haven and personalized culture of support, openess, and complete personalized coaching. My experience has been nothing short of amazing. It is not only run by experts in the field of addiction and recovery; but also, the journey evolves into individual growth and connections that create a bond of family. I have never experienced such individualized attention and support that is not only genuine but also trusting and caring. For anyone who is looking for something more than just a treatment center, counseling, or therapy- I found Phoenis Rising to become a place that I could call home. Everyday I become a little better, because I know that they believe in me and hold me accountable to at least trying.
This facility was great.
It all started 14 years ago, when my self and my disease started as a seemingly fun time had quickly transformed into fun with problems and in no time at all, it was JUST PROBLEMS. My life had changed drastically from living at home, holding down a job, to homeless on the streets at a young age. I began to live my life only to use drugs, in any form and whatever it was i could get my hands on. The repeated behaviors of lying and stealing from my family was all i knew how to do in order to live. Time and time again I had destroyed the trust my family had in me, continuing those behaviors and running my life straight into the ground. Deeper i went into addiction, down into this hopeless state of mind i could not get myself out of. i questioned myself constantly about if i even wanted to change my life but i was becoming so comfortable living on the streets, and spending time in jail. I wanted something different for myself. Call it luck or call it God's will, but whatever you want to call it.. it was a blessing. I made a call and spoke with the intake coordinator at Broadway Treatment Center who just so happened to be old friend of mine, who had since gotten sober. I had absolutely no idea he had even worked in treatment, but i took that as a sign that this was exactly the right thing for me to do. The next day, as promised, i was being picked up and driven to detox at Broadway! i hadn't felt relief like that in a very long time. After these past 2 and a half months in treatment, i have received multiple skills and tools that were results of the time spent in groups, learning simply about life on life's terms. Among the groups we discussed anger management, relapse prevention, cognitive behavioral therapy, rational emotive therapy, and much time in 1 on 1 sessions with a case manager and therapist. Devising a specified treatment plan strictly for me and what I wanted to get out of my stay at Broadway. The unbelievable staffing was another huge blessing to me because of their genuine care and concern they had for myself and the other clients had spoke volumes to me. The program and my treatment at Broadway in its entirety was absolutely amazing. I am completing my stay here today, moving on to the next stage of my life, taking with me all of the tools i was provided and the skills i received from attending group. I got exactly what i wanted here, learning that what i want is directly connected to the effort i put into it. I am so happy and forever grateful for Broadway saving my life!

A rise in heroin-related arrests in nearby Newport Beach, a heroin smuggling ring was busted in LA, a man in nearby Anaheim was busted for possessing a record amount of heroin, an LA fire captain was arrested for buying heroin, another man was arrested after 68 balloons of heroin was found in his truck - heroin is a local scourge unlike anything else in Compton and other parts of Southern California.
