Norwalk Addiction Treatment Centers

Norwalk, California, is a suburb of Los Angeles, where the average resident is 35 years of age.1 This age group is often one that struggles with excessive drinking; illicit drugs are also a problem, possibly due, in part, to its proximity to a large metropolis like L.A.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) states that excessive drinking does not only mean addiction to alcohol but includes activities like binge or heavy drinking. Alcohol use disorder (AUD), however, is a chronic disease of the brain that involves compulsively drinking too much alcohol, being unable to control that drinking, and suffering from withdrawal symptoms when trying to reduce use or quit.2

Binge drinking means drinking too 4 to 5 or more alcoholic drinks in a short period (such as 2 hours), sometimes to the point of blacking out. Heavy drinking, in contrast, means drinking more than 1 serving of alcohol per day, which may not lead to intoxication but can cause long-term damage to the liver, stomach, heart, and other organs.2

In Los Angeles County, 20.3% of residents reported binge drinking at least once in the prior month between 2005 and 2010.3 And though binge drinking and AUD are different, drinking too much too can sometimes lead to addiction. It is important to get help with withdrawal from alcohol addiction, because certain withdrawal symptoms can be life-threatening.
