California Drug Use Survey

by James Heller 27. May 2009 07:35
California alcohol and drug treatment professionals know well that drug addiction continues to be a problem in this state.  Surveys are a good tool for providing facts to the general public, since most people are not aware of the extent drugs effect society.  So it is important to keep this information flowing in order to bring greater awareness to California citizens.

A recent opinion poll taken by an online resource for addiction and substance abuse information found that marijuana remains the most popular drug abused in California.  The poll focused on use rather than drug addiction, and provides a look at what the future may hold for today’s adolescents.

Of the parents polled who stated their children have used drugs almost 25% listed methamphetamines, cocaine, heroin, ecstasy, hallucinogens, or recreational use of prescription drugs as the child’s drug of choice.  This is a very real future problem for California.  Children who use these drugs are at high risk of developing a drug addiction or even cross over to alcohol dependence by the time they are adults.

Tarzana Treatment Centers provides adolescent alcohol and drug treatment.  For more information please call 888-777-8565 or contact us here.

Here are some points of interest from the report on www.keepcomingback.com.  For poll result details, go to http://www.keepcomingback.com/files/KCBDrugPollTopline.pdf.

The survey found that nearly half (44%) of Californians have tried marijuana at least once and 1 in 6 residents have used the drug within the last year. Clearly it is the most common drug used, in a category far different than cocaine (13% said they had previously used), methamphetamines (9%) or have used prescription drugs without a doctor’s order (9%).

KeepComingBack.com also explored how Californians view the impact of drug use. Consistent with its widespread use, respondents had a very different attitude about marijuana, with only 30% saying that the drug was very harmful. This contrasts with the harm that participants believe results from using cocaine (91% saying it was very harmful) or heroin (96% saying it was very harmful).

The survey also found that nearly one in four Californians with at least one child over the age of 10 reported that their offspring has tried illegal drugs. Another 11% were unsure about whether their children had tried illegal drugs. As with adults, by far the most prevalent drug used by children was marijuana (60.6%) though a disturbing number of parents (11.7% of the subsample) reported that the main drug their child used was methamphetamine.
