Tale of the Tape - Substance Abuse Data
According to information provided by DrugAbuseStatistics.org, drug/alcohol abuse in the U.S. is higher than it has ever been in the past. Considering that drugs like heroin, Ecstasy and the growing spread of fentanyl are so readily available in major cities throughout the country, the numbers will just keep getting worse. While specific California drug abuse stats are not easy to find, there is ample reason to believe that what's happening in the Golden State mirrors what's going on in other parts of the country. Here are some startling stats you should be thinking about, especially if you or someone you know is suffering from addiction.
- 50% of the population over the age of 12 reported using illicit drugs at least once
- More than 700K U.S. citizens have died from a drug overdose in the last 20 years
- 2.3% of the population over 12 has tried heroin
- 13.5% of the population over 12 admitted to using drugs in the last month of 2020
- 20.4% of the population over 12 admitted to having an alcohol abuse problem
- Over 25% of the population over 12 admitted to having a drug addiction of some kind (24% of them addicted to opioids)
Note: These stats cover 2020. These are devastating numbers. Of California's 40,000,000 people, approximately 35,000,000 would be over the age of 12. If you apply the stats from above to California's over-12 population, the magnitude of the substance abuse problem in CA becomes clearer.

We provide our services in a luxury environment that is intended to help our clients feel comfortable and more at home while working through one of the most difficult times in their lives.As you contemplate what to do about your substance abuse problem, you can take comfort in knowing help is available. All you need to do is recognize the extent of your problem and reach out for help. When you reach out to Hollywood Hills Recovery, here is what we can offer you.
Substance Abuse Treatment Detox Programs
A big part of arresting an addiction is cleansing the body of the remnants of substance abuse. That usually requires that the addiction sufferer goes through withdrawal. In many cases, dealing with withdrawal symptoms is a risky endeavor. When the body is denied a substance it has become dependent on, it will revolt when denied that access. Prior to you taking part in therapy, we want you to prepare yourself to do so with a clear mind and body. To ensure you have the opportunity to do that, we offer a variety of detox programs and medication assisted treatment. While we want our clients to go through withdrawal as naturally as possible, that's not always going to happen. If you have a significant addiction to alcohol or drugs like heroin or meth, the risks associated with your withdrawal symptoms would be high. That's why we offer a medically monitored detox program. With our staff of medical professionals standing by, every effort would be made to make sure you remain safe and comfortable through the detox process. If prescription medications would be needed, they would be made available.
Therapy and Counseling
The end goal of detox is to prepare you for the rigors of therapy. Over the next month or two, you would be working with some of the finest addiction treatment professionals in California. With the ultimate goal of lasting addiction recovery, they would employ certain types of therapy to address the circumstances surrounding your addiction. At Hollywood Hills Recovery, our therapists have access to the latest drug and alcohol addiction treatment modalities. The list of treatment options that are available include:
- Evidenced based therapies like Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Dialectal Behavioral Therapy (DBT)
- Dual Diagnosis Therapy for co-occurring disorders (addiction + mental health problems)
- Traditional one-on-one counseling
- Group Therapy
- Family Therapy
- Sober Living
- Outpatient Programs
- Holistic treatments (art & music, recreational, meditation, etc.)
Since we prefer a natural approach to drug and alcohol addiction treatment, we do a lot of work through holistic programs. We do this to ensure we are addressing all aspects of your well-being as the healing process takes hold. The target of our therapy efforts is to help you understand the root causes behind your need to self-medicate. In almost every instance, there is a reason why each of our clients went through substance abuse into a full-blown addiction. We know the healing will start once clients like you know exactly that with which they are dealing. Once the root causes have been identified, you would be able to move forward with the treatment process. That would include developing the coping skills that you would need in the battle against your personal triggers and temptation. With the right coping skills, there is a good chance you would be able to void relapses in the future. At the conclusion of the therapeutic process, we would send you out the door as a sober person. In support of your desire to stay sober, we would be happy to recommend aftercare options that you can embrace to help you avoid relapses. If you were to relapse, our door would still be open.
