Garden Grove has a substantial number of people suffering addiction; they can get assistance in sober living and drug treatment facilities spread across Garden Groove and surrounding areas.
Garden Grove has a substantial number of people who suffer from drug and substance addiction, however, only a few seek treatment for their problem. Some of the reasons cited for this kind of situation are lack of knowledge on the available assistance, inhibitive costs that are charged by some of the treatment facilities and lack of social and family support.
Like other areas in Orange County, the drug problem is widespread with major concerns being opioids, prescription drugs, marijuana, alcohol, cocaine, heroin among other illicit substances. Underage drinking is a major concern in Garden Grove with close to seventy-two percent of the youth in the area seeing alcohol as something that can be obtained easily. The problem gets worse when more than half of the young people aged between 12 and 20 reporting having taken alcohol at least once in their lives with half of them taking it regularly. Approximately twenty percent of the adolescent admitting to engaging in binge drinking.
A report which focused on youth and drinking reported that thirty-five percent of teen alcohol takers normally drive while under the influence of alcohol putting them on the risk of fatal accidents and jail time. These teens continue with the drinking into their adulthood meaning that they are highly likely to become alcohol addicts. They are also likely to engage in risky behaviors such as unprotected sex and violent incidences.
Although marijuana is legally allowed in California, its use is widespread across all the age groups. It is a problem with youth, with young people in eleventh-grade reporting using it. This is a major concern as marijuana is mostly considered as an entry drug. Peer pressure and the legal status of marijuana in the state of California have been cited as some of the reason that has contributed to the drug problem in Garden Grove and the whole of the state.
Problems associated with drug use are numerous especially among the young people; poor memory, compromised decision-making abilities, engaging in risky behavior, experimentation with more hard drugs, depression and other mental health-related issues are some of the problems. However, there is assistance available in Garden Grove sober living for those who are dealing with drug and substance addiction.
