Lynwood Inpatient Drug and Alcohol Rehab Facilities

The rate of car accident deaths caused by a driver under the influence of marijuana has increased in Los Angeles County by 620% between 2003 and 2014, according to the County of Los Angeles Public Health. Similarly, rates of admission to the ER due to use of marijuana in LA County have jumped up 602% between 2006 and 2015.1

Despite the fact that California has legalized marijuana for recreational use, it is clear that some of the dangers associated with the drug are a legitimate threat. Marijuana is not harmless, as many people believe. In fact, levels of THC, the active ingredient in marijuana, have increased over the years, paralleling the increase in ER visits, deaths on the road, and rates of marijuana addiction.

For families in Lynwood, California, the threat of marijuana is serious. For those who are in their teens and those who use the drug every day, the risk of addiction is highest, but about 1 in 9 people who experiment with the drug will ultimately develop an addiction.1 Anyone who uses the drug and gets behind the wheel is not only putting their own safety at risk but the safety of others in the car and on the road as well.

Because marijuana is an addictive substance, families who are in crisis can turn to comprehensive and research-based addiction treatment programs just as they would for any substance of choice. Call now to speak with a treatment advisor about your options for rehab and recovery.

    More Info
    View Lynwood Treatment Services Lynwood, California is a suburb of Los Angeles. Eighty-six percent of the residents are Hispanic and the median age is just under 28. This is a demographic that has been affected by the economic downturn in recent years, and census data bears this out. Average incomes are approximately one-third lower than the California average, while unemployment is over one-third higher.
    Economic pressures are a major factor in substance abuse, as those struggling attempt to medicate themselves in order to deal with the stress. This may seem to work for a time, but invariably, it only makes things worse.

    When you come to the point that you are drinking or self-medicating, not to feel good, but rather to simply keep from feeling bad, it's time to get professional help.

    What to Look at Before Entering a Treatment Program

    Numerous options are available to those who need help in overcoming substance abuse problems. It is important to know what to look for prior to entering a program, however. Find out if:

    • The staff is trained and licensed, and the facility is accredited
    • Detox is part of the program
    • Inpatient and outpatient programs are available
    • Post-treatment support is offered

    Some may wish to know if spiritual counseling is part of the program as well.

    Substance Abuse Among Hispanics

    Rates of addiction and alcoholism among Latinos are similar to those found among other groups. However, according to several studies, Hispanic women who are less assimilated into US mainstream culture are less likely to have substance abuse problems. There are several hypotheses as to why this is (culture may play a part), but no clear consensus.
