Find a Substance Abuse Rehab Center or Resource in Paramount, CA

From heroin to prescription painkillers, to the deadly influx of fentanyl, opioid abuse is a looming threat in Paramount and across the state of California. The California Department of Public Health has asked that all county emergency departments work together to alter how they respond to patients who may be actively living with an opioid addiction and protect them from the potential of overdose.1

Los Angeles County emergency departments have instituted a number of policies aimed at curbing opioid abuse, keeping prescription drugs off the black market, and preventing overdose. These measures include limiting the amount of prescription painkillers administered to ER patients.1 The aim is to limit the amount of opioids given each patient in order to reduce the risk of the patient developing a dependence on the drug. It also helps prevent patients from selling excess pills on the street. This measure also helps curb the practice of “doctor shopping,” when patients present with pain at multiple facilities in order to get more opioids to fuel their addiction.

If you are struggling with dependence or addiction to painkillers, heroin, or even other drugs like alcohol, cocaine, methamphetamine, or Xanax, now is the time to get treatment. Contact a treatment advisor to discuss your options in recovery or browse or directory to find a rehab facility near Paramount, CA, that fits your needs.

Before recovery can begin, the body must be washed free of the abused substance. This process is called detoxification. Many drugs will leave the addict with unpleasant side effects or withdrawal symptoms once the body has become accustomed to the substance. Medically-assisted detox can diminish the discomfort for anyone seeking to get clean.
