Drug Abuse Trends in Glendale, CA

In the southeastern portion of the San Fernando Valley, Glendale, California, is one of many suburbs of the Los AngelesLong BeachAnaheim metro area. With an estimated population of 200,167 people, it is the third-largest city in Los Angeles County. While California is famous for legalizing marijuana use, it still suffers from high rates of substance abuse. And, due to a continually booming population, accessing medical care for an addiction can be challenging. In 2015, approximately 1 in 4 LA County residents reported difficulty accessing medical care.

According to the most recent coroner’s report, the substances that most often contribute to county deaths are:

Poly-drug Abuse in Glendale

In most other parts of the country, the opioid epidemic is the primary public health concern. However, in California, most overdose deaths include two or more substances. Cocaine and meth are two of the most commonly co-abused substances in LA County. According to coroner’s reports, meth was present in twice as many cases as heroin and fentanyl combined. Furthermore, meth and cocaine are two of the most common substances involved in accidental deaths (after alcohol).

Additionally, prescription opioids are commonly abused with alcohol, resulting in death when a person’s breathing is reduced to the point of stopping altogether. Fentanyl, predominantly found along the eastern half of the U.S., was responsible for a number of overdoses in Glendale. Fentanyl, a synthetic opioid up to 50 times more powerful than heroin, can be lethal within 2 milligrams. To combat a similar rise in fentanyl deaths on the west coast, California started to provide fentanyl test strips at some of the state’s needle exchange programs.
