The small city of Norwalk, CA, is located just southeast of Los Angeles and, like other cities in Los Angeles County, struggles with illicit drugs as well as opioid abuse.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) found that, of the 63,600 drug overdose deaths throughout the country in 2016, 66% of those deaths involved an opioid drug.1 Los Angeles County statistics reflect this national trend. Between 2010 and 2014, rates of emergency room admissions due to nonfatal overdoses for opioids rose steadily.2

In the greater LA metropolitan area, which contains Norwalk, about 4% of residents struggle with prescription painkiller addiction. While slightly lower than the national average of 4.9%, it is still a major problem in the region.2 Once a person struggling with opioid addiction is no longer able to get prescription narcotics, they are at risk of moving to heroin to satisfy their cravings, as it offers a similar and cheaper high.

Evidence-based approaches to treating opioid addiction include medication-assisted treatment (which involves medications to alleviate cravings, such as buprenorphine) and therapeutic approaches such as cognitive-behavioral therapy.

The majority of drugs will leave the addicted person with unpleasant side effects or withdrawal symptoms once the body has become accustomed to having the substance. Professionally administered detoxification can lessen the discomfort for anyone seeking to get sober.
