Gardena Inpatient Drug and Alcohol Rehab Programs

The city of Gardena, California, is just southwest of Los Angeles and home to roughly 60,000 residents.1 It is one of the smaller cities in Los Angeles County and essentially a suburb of Los Angeles metro. Although small in population, Gardena struggles with many of the same substance abuse problems as larger cities, including opioid abuse and addiction.

Our nation is currently facing an opioid abuse and overdose crisis, fueled in part by years of overprescribing and under-monitoring of opioid painkillers like hydrocodone and oxycodone. In 2012, one-quarter of the doctors in Los Angeles County wrote 91% of all the opioid prescriptions that were dispensed.2 Between 1997 and 2007, there was a 600% increase in the number of opioids prescribed and an almost 300% increase in related opioid overdose deaths.3

Many people who receive prescriptions for opioid painkillers do not need all the pills they receive, so these drugs stay in medicine cabinets for a long time. This means that people who struggle with opioid addiction can go into a loved one’s home and likely find a narcotic to abuse. One way to reduce this risk is by participating in prescription take-back programs, where unused prescriptions can be turned in at drop boxes. 3

If you know someone who is struggling with opioid abuse, you can help them get the evidence-based treatment they need. Call our helpline to learn more about treatment for opioid addiction or any other substance abuse problem.

Gardena, CA Drug Addiction Detox and Rehab Centers The city of Gardena, in California, has an active social calendar for its residents. The available entertainment in the area includes the Disneyland (located in nearby Anaheim), and adult entertainment options like Normandie Casino. While the Gardena, CA area may have many family-oriented activities, the presence of casinos can lead to the development of gambling addictions in residents. Online gambling is becoming increasingly popular as a result of its convenience, but many seasoned gamblers prefer the physical casino environment, where the lights and sounds further contribute to their addictions. While the public often assumes that addiction only occurs with something that can be consumed, behaviors can be equally as addictive. As a result, many treatment solutions focus on rehabilitating gambling addictions in a manner that is similar to the treatment of drug or alcohol abuse.Signs of Gambling Addiction

According to a Harvard publication, the American Psychiatric Association defines problem gambling as follows:

  • Use of gambling as a coping strategy for other life issues
  • An inability to be honest about gambling activities
  • Sacrificing personal relationships and careers as a result of gambling behavior
  • Constant thoughts about gambling
  • An inability to cut back on gambling
  • Impulsive behavior when gambling; for example, giving in to the desire to continually increase the size of wagers
What You Need to Ask Before Signing Up for Drug Detox

When exploring treatment options for gambling addictions, ensure that you learn about the treatment approaches used. Pose the following questions:

  • Is outpatient treatment for my gambling addiction sufficient, or should I consider being admitted to an inpatient program? Do I have a choice?
  • What psychological treatment protocols are used (since gambling addiction recovery has a strong psychological/emotional component)?
  • How can you ensure that my addiction won't transfer to a different substance or behavior?
