The city of Carlsbad is just north of San Diego, along Southern California’s beautiful coastline. As of 2016, this small city’s population was about 112,000 residents.1 Amidst the natural beauty of the city, many Carlsbad residents struggle with addiction to drugs or alcohol. This has led to an increased rate of overdose deaths in the last decade.
In the San Diego County area, there were about 13.7 drug overdose deaths for every 100,000 people in 2010, which was an increase from 12.4 in 2009. Of these overdose deaths, 81.1% were accidental overdoses, which indicates problematic substance abuse.2 Someone abusing a dangerous drug like heroin may take too much to get high and wind up overdosing.
Treating an overdose requires emergency medical attention. Without admission to an emergency room, someone suffering from an overdose is more likely to die. These deaths can be prevented by seeking treatment. If you’re struggling with drug abuse, it’s important to get help from a rehab before an overdose leads to health problems or worse. Call us today to talk to a recovery support advisor about rehabs in your area.

Risks of Heroin Abuse
Heroin overdoses have been problematic in Carlsbad and other areas outside of San Diego. But overdose isn’t the only negative effect of heroin abuse and addiction.
Before it kills you, heroin slowly siphons everything good out of your life, including:
- Your health
- Your ability to provide for yourself and your family
- Everything you’ve worked for in your career
- Your relationships
The trajectory from first use to full-blown addiction is short and steep. Most people are physically dependent within a couple weeks of regular use of the drug and many say that psychological dependence kicked in the very first time they used it. Loss associated with use of heroin begins just as quickly and lasts until the day you quit.
