Gardena Alcohol and Drug Rehab Listings
The abuse of prescription medications has been on the rise across the nation in recent years. The 2011 Los Angeles County Health Survey on Prescription Drug Abuse in LA County reported that more than 5 percent of adults (an estimated 379,000 residents) admitted to abuse of prescription drugs in the previous year. Many of these individuals have taken prescription medications because they believe that these drugs are in some way safer than illicit drugs, but far from being safe, abusing these drugs can be very dangerous.
Drug overdose is the third-leading cause of injury and premature death in Los Angeles County, which includes towns like Gardena. Also, according to statistics, the number of overdose deaths related to prescription opioid painkillers rose almost 300 percent from 2,901 to 11,499 between 1997 and 2007 and accounted for more deaths than heroin and cocaine combined.
Recognizing Signs of Drug Abuse
While most abusers of prescription drugs may not readily confess to their drug abuse issues, there are some signs of drug abuse that friends and family can look for:
- Work or school-related difficulties
- Changes in friendships
- New family problems, increased conflicts with family
- Habitual lying or theft
- Financial and legal complications
- New physical illnesses and declining health
- Unexplained weight loss and other physical problems
- New behavioral issues, changes in personality, emotional state or outlook on life
