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.
