Whittier Addiction Treatment Centers

Although Whittier, California is a relatively quiet city with fewer than 90,000 residents, adolescents in the city are at risk of problem drinking.1 This is a serious health problem that can lead to addiction struggles throughout life, along with brain damage and harm to the growing body.

Throughout the state of California, about 17% of adolescents abuse alcohol at least once before the age of 13, and about 29% reported drinking alcohol within the month prior to the survey.2 In Los Angeles County, about 22% of the population ages 12 and older reported binge drinking at least once in the past month.3

One report on Whittier found that 25% of young adults under the age of 21 year knew of at least one place in their neighborhood that sold alcohol to underage people. To combat this problem, 14 businesses that sell or serve alcohol banded together in 2015. These stores and restaurants displayed stickers about their commitment to the citywide program to prevent minors from obtaining alcohol from them. In many cases, this means carding alcohol purchasers or refusing service to certain patrons to deter adolescents from trying to buy it. 4

If you are addicted to alcohol, however, detox is a necessary first step that requires medical supervision. After a safe detox program is complete, moving to an inpatient or outpatient rehab that specializes in working with adolescents and adults is a good step in improving the chances of a long-term recovery. This page provides treatment options that you can research to find the best one for you.
