Los Angeles, California -

Los Angeles, CA – Although Los Angeles is known as “The City of Angels”, there’s also serious concern regarding the less than heavenly side of this famous city. Recently, while the city has rightfully been focusing on the COVID-19 pandemic, there’s also been a noticeable spike in the case of drug and alcohol addiction. Regardless of whether the increase in substance abuse is a consequence of the pandemic or whether it’s simply a startling result of the everyday stresses of modern life, the statistics should be concerning for Los Angeles residents.

In March 2021, the Public Health Office of Los Angeles produced an in-depth study regarding the increase in accidental drug overdoses since the pandemic began. Their findings were alarming. The Public Health Office reported that there was a 48% increase in accidental drug overdoses in comparison to the numbers that were reported in 2019.

It was also reported that more than 1,370 Los Angeles residents had died of conditions that could be attributed to alcoholism. In addition, more than 27,000 people were hospitalized for alcohol-related illnesses in a year. Emergency room visits, admission to a hospital, automobile accidents and violent crimes were all on the rise, as was the possibility of fatal overdose.

Although it seems as though the city of Los Angeles is aware of these startling figures, it doesn’t appear at this time that there is a clear plan to address addiction on a city or state level at this time. It’s important to remember, though, that there is always help. When you connect with a quality addiction treatment center you can take the first steps toward living a new and healthier life. Going through an addiction treatment program like the drug rehab program at Muse Treatment in Los Angeles, helps people learn how to work through their addiction by addressing the underlying issues in their lives that may have contributed to their substance abuse.
