Fountain Valley, California Drug Abuse Statistics – You’re Not Alone in This Struggle

Fountain Valley is in Orange County, a county that has certainly seen its fair share of substance use-related problems. According to the 2014 California Health Interview Survey, 35.1% of the adults surveyed in the county had engaged in binge drinking. 

A 2012 report by the Orange County Health Care Agency & Sheriff-Coroner states that, between 2011 and 2012, there were over 10,000 hospitalizations for drug- and alcohol-related problems. There were 1,863 hospitalizations for alcohol dependence. There were 963 hospitalizations for opioid dependence, 18 for cocaine dependence, 29 for marijuana dependence, and 68 for dependence on amphetamines and other psychostimulant substances.

The 2018 Orange County Indicators report states that substance abuse-related and mental health-related hospital admissions accounted for about 5% of all of the Orange County hospitalizations in 2016. 

Unfortunately, many individuals have lost their lives in Orange County due to drug or alcohol overdoses. The same 2018 report found that 40% of the fatal overdoses that occurred in Orange County were the result of alcohol or drug abuse. The other 60% occurred because of alcohol or drug poisoning.

Although it’s often believed that illicit drug use is the most dangerous type of substance abuse and the most likely to cause fatality, the statistics tell a slightly different story. In many of the reported overdose cases, prescription opioids were involved. This means that legal drugs, pharmaceutical substances, are just as capable of being harmful as illegal drugs. 

This is why it’s so important for those who have any substance use disorder, whether they are abusing cocaine or OxyContin, to get professional help in treating addiction. Substance abuse, regardless of the substance being used, is a very serious matter and should be addressed as such. 

Mental Health Services in Fountain Valley

Often, people suffer from co-occurring disorders, meaning that some individuals have a mental health disorder and struggle with addiction. Some of the mental health disorders that sometimes accompany substance abuse include:

  • Schizophrenia
  • Stress disorder
  • Depression
  • Bipolar disorder
  • Attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)

According to the 2018 Orange County Indicators report, Orange County had an admission rate of 50.5 per 10,000 for admissions related to mental health and substance abuse in 2016. Between the years 2007 and 2016, hospitalizations for bipolar disorder fell 30%. But, hospitalizations for major depression among youth and children increased by 99%. 

The 2012 report by the Orange County Health Care Agency & Sheriff-Coroner found that almost 4 out of every 10 of the 10,782 hospitalizations between 2011 and 2012 involved cases where admittees showed symptoms of mental illness as a result of alcohol or drug withdrawal.

A 2016 Community Health Needs Assessment by the Orange Coast Memorial Medical Center reports that 6.3% of adults in Orange County had dealt with the effects of serious psychological distress at some point during the 12 months prior to the report. 9.9% saw specialists in order to get treatment for mental illness. But, 55.3% of the adults who sought help reported that they did not get the help they needed. 11.1% used medication in order to treat the symptoms of their mental health disorder. 

Sadly, many people in Orange County and all throughout California are living with mental illness and have not received the help that they need in order to manage their symptoms. Some have even developed addictions as a result of alcohol or drug use. 

The good news is that there are many resources and treatment centers in California, including here in Orange County. We here at Northbound Treatment Services provide care and support to those who are suffering from addiction, mental illness, and co-occurring disorders.

Inpatient Vs. Outpatient Drug and Alcohol Treatment in Fountain Valley

Inpatient treatment, also called residential treatment, is a type of addiction program in which patients live at their rehab facility. This kind of treatment allows people to have 24/7 access to clinical and professional care. Individuals can also receive treatment in a safe, alcohol- and drug-free environment, away from the triggers that might be present at home. 

Outpatient programs allow people to live outside of the rehab center. Some people may continue living at home while in rehab or they might live at a sober living facility. Individuals in an outpatient rehab program may be able to hold jobs, attend school, and take care of family responsibilities while in treatment.

It’s believed that there is less of a possibility of relapse for those who enter residential rehab than for those who go through outpatient treatment. It’s also commonly thought that inpatient treatment is more beneficial for those who suffer from severe addiction problems while outpatient programs may work well for those who have less severe addictions.

However, it’s important to seek professional guidance when choosing the type of treatment you will get. With guidance and help from those who understand your needs, you can make an educated decision about your care and recovery process.

Getting Help in Fountain Valley, CA: How to Choose the Right Facility

If you have been suffering from addiction or co-occurring disorders, there is hope for you. It may be hard to know exactly what to do about your struggle. Uncertainty, fear, guilt, and shame often prevent people from reaching out for help. But, know that you don’t have to face any of this alone.

Here at Northbound Treatment Services in Orange County, CA, we understand the importance of finding a treatment center that is the best fit. Each individual is different; every client deserves the chance to have an individualized treatment process. So, we work to make sure every person who comes to us for help receives the best care for their needs.

First, our patients begin their recovery journey with a medical detox process. This allows people to safely withdraw from alcohol or drug use. It also helps to cleanse the body from the toxins released by these substances. 

Once the detox process is over, our clients can continue their journey through our inpatient (residential) program. Throughout this program, individuals can partake in both group and individual therapy sessions. 

Addiction therapy and counseling offer assistance to those who are struggling in various areas of their lives as a result of substance use. For instance, cognitive behavioral therapy can help to bring mental healing and stability. Family therapy can help individuals to make amends with loved ones and give families a deeper understanding of their loved ones’ struggles. 

Once the residential treatment program is complete, our clients can transition into our outpatient rehab program. This part of the process involves intensive care while still allowing patients to become acclimated with life outside of treatment.

Whether you or someone you know could use some help in overcoming substance abuse, we are here to help. For more information about our services, just contact us today by calling (866) 311-0003.
