Drug Rehab Centers Helpline
There is nothing more devastating for a substance abuser and his family than going to treatment and then relapsing. One of the main reasons that someone relapses is that he did not go to a long term drug rehab center. What is long term drug treatment? If you search for long term drug treatment centers in the Facility Locator of the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, treatment program more than 30 days is considered a long term drug treatment center. Yet, research done by the National Insitute on Drug Abuse shows that less than 90 days treatment for someone severely afflicted with substance abuse is not successful. On this web-site, we consider long term drug and alcohol treatment to be 90 days or more.

Long-Term Drug Rehab for California

california longterm

California has an approximately 2,261,000 people with a alcohol abuse or dependence problem in the 2005, with an estimated 880,000 individuals that had dependence or addiction problems with illicit drugs.

Surveys have shown that 2,197,000 people in California needed alcohol rehab treatment but did not receive any care in 2005, which means that of the 2,261,000 people with alcohol problems, only 64,000 got any form of treatment. This doesn't mean that 13,000 alcoholics or people with alcohol problems were cured, it only speaks to that number receiving some kind of services. There were another 849,000 individuals were in need of drug addiction treatment but did not receive it.
As you know from reading on the home page of this site, the only effective treatment is Long-Term Rehab and since there are very few long-term facilities in Oklahoma, it can be estimated that very few of those 64,000 have found the level of care needed to end their addiciton.

Drug trafficking, drug abuse and addiction, and the need for effective drug rehab are not expected to level off or drop anytime soon in California. Looking at the following figures we can see the percentages of California residents drug use for 2005.
Dependence on or abuse of any illicit drug or alcohol 9.31
Marijuana use in past year 11.41
Cocaine use in past year 2.15
Non-medical use of pain relievers 4.63
Alcohol abuse or dependence in last year 7.77
This is a sampling and is by no means complete.
When considering the drug problem in California, we also need to consider the impact of prescription drugs of abuse as well as methamphetamine, both of which have moved out of the local arena and have taken on the color of national epidemics, especially among youth. California statistics for 2005 show:
• Non-medical use of any prescription psychotherapeutic drugs in past year 2,038,000
• Non-medical use of pain relievers in past year 1,483,000

• Non-medical use of stimulants in past year 457,000
• Non-medical use of methamphetamine in past year 338,000
• Non-medical use of sedatives in past year 90,000

On a more personal level for the addict, alcoholic, or concerned loved one we can expect some or all of the following problems to escalate as the personal level of addiction or alcoholism increases:
For the addict or alcoholic (by no means a complete list):

• Continuing health deterioration including related illness and disease.
• Increasing levels of lying, deceit, excuses and other unwanted behaviors.
• Increasing disregard and abuse of family financial resources.
• Lessening or complete absence of family participation.
• Apparent lack of concern or care for their situation and addiction/alcoholism.
• For the loved one of an addict or alcoholic (again, not a complete list):
• Increased roller-coaster of emotions as one tries their best to understand and get through to their loved one.
• Increased feelings of being powerless to help.
• Increased distrust and disgust at our loved one's actions and attitudes.
• Increased stress of coping with family and financial problems related with our loved one's addiction or alcoholism.
• Increased feelings of isolation. (Special thanks to for these stats)

Sleep Doctor No More
Implicated as a user of prescription and recreational drugs

A drug-plagued La Jolla psychiatrist specializing in sleep disorders has agreed to permanently surrender his license to practice medicine in California, according to a stipulation with the state's medical board. On November 5, 2014, the board alleged that Bradley John Schnierow was an addict who had written 48 controlled-drug prescriptions for a girlfriend in a year's time.

In March 2013, Schnierow had resigned from the staff at Scripps Memorial Hospital and could no longer practice medicine there. Instead, he "would 'sneak in to the Scripps' property in an attempt to see patients in the lobby," according to another board allegation. In addition, a former landlord said crack pipes had been found in the physician's office, and DEA agents discovered pot, a bong, and "15 glass pipes with methamphetamine residue and a myriad of other pills, substances, and injectables," according to a TV report.
