Addiction in the State of California

When we think of California, the first thing that comes to mind is affluence and glamour.  But, that idyllic image is somewhat deceptive.  Beneath the glam and glitter exists a sordid reality created by drug abuse and addiction. With a population of 37,253,956, there are many chances for things to go wrong.  For instance, more than 3 million of California’s citizens are addicted to illegal drugs. Drug-related crimes, illnesses, and deaths are at unprecedented levels statewide.

California was the first state in the U.S. to endorse a prescription drug monitoring program (PDMP). But, only a small percentage of physicians participated. As a result, Governor Jerry Brown signed legislation requiring all opioid prescribers to check the database before prescribing controlled substances. This process will reduce doctor-shopping and save lives.

California is vulnerable to drug smuggling due to its unique geography.  Many illegal drugs such as methamphetamine, heroin, cocaine, and marijuana are smuggled into the state from Mexico. Los Angeles is a major distribution point for drugs destined for shipment to major large cities throughout the U.S. The city of L.A. is also a major transshipment and distribution center for cocaine. Northern California is overwhelmed by methamphetamine production and abuse in rural areas. Also, the number one drug of abuse in San Francisco is heroin.

Below are other disturbing statistics that reveal the severity of the drug situation in California today.  These stats focus on the most prevalent drugs of abuse in the state:

  • Meth:
    • About 500,000 people in California abuse meth.
    • In one city alone, 52% of felony arrests were for meth-related problems.
    • California law enforcement seized 14,732 pounds of meth in 2015.
    • Meth remains the primary drug threat in the state.
  • Cocaine:
    • Almost 6% of people aged 18 to 25 admitted to using cocaine in the past year.
    • Law enforcement seizes about 18,000 pounds of cocaine per year.
  • Heroin:
    • ER admissions for heroin-related problems increased by 10% in 2014.
    • In 2016, ER departments treated 412 adults aged 20 to 29 due to heroin abuse.
  • Opioids:
    • In 2015, 11,500 people were admitted to ERs for opioid or heroin overdoses.
    • Between 2005 and 2014, more than 11 million people were prescribed opioids for treating workplace injuries.
    • Opioids account for 25% of all prescriptions filled in the state of California each year.
    • More than 60% of opioid addicts did not have a legal prescription for the drug.
    • Deaths from opioid abuse have increased by 200% since 2000.
  • Alcohol:
    • At least 15% of high school students in California admit to binge drinking.
    • More than 2.3 million people over age 12 admit to an alcohol abuse or dependency problem.
    • Alcohol-related problems cost the state more than $32 billion per year.
  • Marijuana:
    • More than $60 million was spent in one year alone to incarcerate marijuana offenders. Each inmate costs the state approximately $45,000 for a 13-month sentence.
    • Every year, state law enforcement seizes about 413,000 pounds of marijuana.

In 2016, President Obama allocated $53 million in grants to implement policies for funding the fight against the opioid epidemic nationwide. His administration also urged lawmakers to approve $1.1 billion to expand treatment options for addicts.  If the proposed funding is approved, California is slated to receive $78 million in grants over a two-year period.

Drug trafficking in California is a lucrative business for the cartels and dealers. It will take a concentrated effort on behalf of many individuals and organizations to curtail the rampage of drug abuse and addiction. Prevention and education programs in California are dedicated to this goal. Some of those agencies are as follows:
