Getting Help From A Better Today while Addicted in CA.


Even in a state as beautiful as California, there are still people who suffer from something as ugly as addiction. According to statistics from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, only 12% of the individuals in California who are afflicted with drug addiction get the care they need, and only 8% of Californians get help from alcoholism. Drug and alcohol dependency often causes substantial damage in multiple facets in one's life. Entire families have been torn apart by the occurrence of addiction, as well as countless friendships being lost to its onset. However, not only does drug and alcohol addiction cause immense damage to one's personal relationships, addiction also has devastating effects on ones mental, emotional and physical health. Oftentimes, one's quality of life is severely diminished by the crippling effects of mind-altering substances, leaving an emotional void that can never be filled. In addition, drugs and alcohol can often exacerbate or induce numerous permanent mental health issues, such as psychosis, hallucinations, Bipolar Disorder, and other disorders. Finally, addiction can contribute to early deaths, due to accidents (such as car accidents and falls), and medical issues (such as seizures, coma, heart issues, digestive issues) that lead to death.
