Drug and Alcohol Problems in the San Diego Area – The Statistics

learn more

Research shows that substance use disorders (SUDs) are relatively common in San Diego and surrounding communities. SUD is the modern term for drug and alcohol addiction. It also includes drug or alcohol use that doesn’t produce addiction but still substantially lessens your ability to function. 

San Diego’s historical rate for SUDs surpasses California’s average by a wide margin. It surpasses the national average by an even more significant amount. As in any city or region, some problems are more common in San Diego than others. Local rates for alcohol SUDs are roughly comparable to those in more incredible Los Angeles. However, the rate of cocaine use is higher in San Diego than in almost all other Southern California communities.

Do You Need a San Diego Drug and Alcohol Rehab Center?

we are here for you

Recent figures show that roughly 40 million Americans in need of substance treatment don’t seek help from a recovery specialist. Unfortunately, 97 out of every 100 people in this category don’t think they require treatment. Moreover, two-thirds of those who feel they need treatment don’t receive it. 

How do you know if you need to enter a rehab program? All people with diagnosable SUDs have at least two out of 11 symptoms of a drug- or alcohol-related condition. This is the lower threshold for mild SUD. People with three symptoms also fall into the mild category. You may also meet the criteria for the following:

  • Moderate SUD, with four or five symptoms
  • Severe SUD, with six or more symptoms

 You can get a substance use disorder diagnosis from any addiction specialist. Today, most general physicians can also accurately identify SUD symptoms.

For more information on how to get an SUD diagnosis, talk to the specialists at Atlas.

Detox in San Diego Drug Rehab or Alcohol Rehab

your options

As a rule, anyone who starts using drugs or alcohol does so because they perceive their actions as beneficial to them. But if you’re affected by addiction, these supposed benefits are far behind you. Now, your task is halting your drug or alcohol use and clearing your system. That’s the only way to escape the toxic effects of habitual, excessive substance use. 

Addiction doesn’t make this task easy. It has the opposite effect by doing such things as:

  • Pushing you to keep using more drugs or alcohol
  • Decreasing your ability to recognize or care about the harmful effects of your substance use
  • Producing withdrawal symptoms that can sabotage your desire to get sober

Fortunately, there’s no need to face these kinds of sobriety stumbling blocks alone. A supervised detox program in San Diego has everything you need to:

  • Take that first crucial step away from your established pattern of drinking or taking drugs
  • Cope with mild, moderate, or even severe withdrawal symptoms
  • Stick with your commitment to reaching a state of sobriety

There is a suitable detox plan for everyone who enrolls in rehab. The plan that works best for you will take several factors into account. These factors include the substance affecting you and the seriousness of your SUD symptoms. They also include your overall health and physical and mental stability. A range of other personal details may also be important. These facts help explain why effective detox is always customized for each enrolled participant.

Following Up Detox With Addiction Treatment in San Diego

The Atlas Healthcare Group Difference

Detox is universally recommended as a starting point for lasting addiction recovery. But ultimately, it’s only that: a starting point. If you hope to maintain the sobriety you reached during detox, you need to keep your recovery momentum going in active addiction treatment. Active treatment is necessary because it equips you with the knowledge and skills that help make everyday sobriety a realistic ambition.

You gain these crucial abilities by taking part in psychotherapy. Multiple forms of therapy can support your recovery in one way or another, including:

  • Family therapy
  • Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) is an umbrella term for several related therapeutic methods
  • Motivational interviewing
  • Community reinforcement
  • Contingency management
  • Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT)

Medication may also be used to stabilize your recovery. It’s particularly useful for helping you avoid an opioid or alcohol relapse during active treatment. MAT (medication-assisted treatment) brings medication and therapy together in a coordinated course of treatment. 

Talk to us today to learn more about active treatment and the way it works alongside supervised detox.

I give you guys my word when I say they help a lot with recovery, they make you feel at home and welcome, They actually care about you and want you to do better for your life. It was a great experience and I told multiple people about it so they can get their lives back on track like I did! I recommend this place to anyone that need help with their addiction and mental illness cause it really helped me!

Sean R.

I didn’t know it was possible to get sober until I went to silicon beach treatment center. They give you excellent support and have amazing communication with you at all times. The person who helped me out the most was Stephen Carr, the administration director. He was so genuine, down to earth and gave me motivation and inspiration every single day, but even on the days that I didn’t want it. He support me on my journey every step of the way and I couldn’t thank him enough till this day. I tried for 2 years to get sober and now I am already 10 months sober !

Justine C.

This treatment center is one of the reasons why I am alive today and clean and sober. The care I got from staff while my stay there was so genuine and caring. I can’t put in words how grateful I am to have passed through Silicon Beach Treatment Center. They will always have a place in my heart and if you are looking for help this is by far one of the best places there is out there.


Silicon is a great program. From the Clinical Director, Alisha (Ali) to House Managers like Stephen Castel, everyone cares and genuinely wants to help you recover in whatever ways they can. The sober livings are clean and spacious, and don’t feel crowded like housing in treatment often does. Groceries are provided with client input on what we like and want for the house

Co-Occurring Disorder Treatment Centers in San Diego

your options

Fundamentally, SUDs are defined as mental health issues. Their presence is strongly linked to the development of other such issues, including:

  • Anxiety disorders
  • Mood disorders, i.e., depression-based illnesses and bipolar disorders
  • Posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD)

When they appear together or co-occur, SUDs and these kinds of illnesses negatively impact your well-being. To overcome this impact, you need a co-occurring disorder treatment plan. Such a plan pays equal attention to recovery from both mental health concerns affecting you. 

Contact us today to learn more about Atlas’ all-inclusive approach to co-occurring disorder treatment.

Additional Options in a San Diego Drug and Alcohol Rehab Center

Comprehensive treatment for SUDs often calls for additional forms of recovery support. Specific examples of options you may need include:

  • Round-the-clock intervention for crisis situations 
  • A sober living program 
  • Employment support and other resources provided by a case management team

All Atlas Healthcare facilities provide at least some of these services. Consult us today to find out more.
