Car accidents and drug overdose deaths are among the top causes of preventable deaths in Diamond Bar and across California. When both combine in the form of drugged or drunk driving deaths, it is doubly tragic.
According to the County of Los Angeles Public Health, 246 people in the county died due to an alcohol-related motor vehicle accident in 2013, adding up to about 39% of all fatal car accidents that year.1 That number includes only the number of deaths caused by alcohol use and abuse and none of the drugged driving deaths caused by use of prescription painkillers, marijuana, and other drugs.
Alcohol use is an ingrained part of our culture. Drinking takes place as a matter of course at dinner, sports events, and parties. It is everywhere, and for that reason, many do not fully consider the risks associated with drinking. Unfortunately, it is the lack of regard for the fact that alcohol is an addictive drug that results in some people developing an alcohol use disorder—struggling in every part of their life due to chronic drinking or binge drinking that can easily lead to poor choices under the influence and catastrophes like drunk driving accidents.
If you or a loved one is struggling to stop drinking, call now to find out about the different types of treatment services that can help.
