The Need Alcoholics Anonymous Meetings in Long Beach, California

Alcohol addiction is a very common problem across the United States. Alcoholics Anonymous meetings are available in most cities, including Long Beach, California. These meetings can be part of the solution to an alcohol problem.

No one wakes up one day and says I want to be an alcoholic. This is something that can slowly happen over time. Sometimes the drinker does not realize they have gone beyond social drinking and into Alcohol use disorder.

Alcohol use disorder is considered a medical condition. This disorder is when someone can not stop drinking alcohol even when it is causing significant problems in their life. It can range from mild to severe. Even a mild case of alcohol use disorder can cause major problems.

Alcohol Use Statistics in Long Beach, California

The Long Beach Health and Human Services Department creates a community health assessment. This report is available on their website. It provides data about health concerns in the community.

One of the health concerns covered is binge drinking. Binge drinking is five or more drinks in a row for men, four in a row for women. The binge drinking rates for several years in Long Beach:

  • 2014- 16.1% of adults
  • 2015- 17.5 % of adults
  • 2016- 17% of adults
  • 2017- 18.4% of adults
  • 2018- 17.7% of adults

An additional community health assessment on the Long Beach government website provides data on hospitalizations because of alcohol misuse. For the years 2013-2015 in Long Beach there were 15.3 hospitalizations for every 10,000 people. The rate for LA County was 12.5, and for the state of California it was 11.5.

The annual report of the California DUI management information system for 2019 shows DUI arrests by county. Los Angeles County had the following:

  • 2015- 30,779 arrests.
  • 2016- 26,877 arrests.
  • 2017- 25,087 arrests.
  • In 2017- 1,198 of the arrests were felonies.
  • In 2017- 28 of the arrests were juveniles.

Alcohol Addiction Rehab Options

12 step groups like AA are only one type of support for those that want to quit drinking. People who have been drinking for years, or were drinking heavily will benefit from professional outpatient rehab. Examples of therapy options are:

  • Group counseling
  • One on one counseling
  • Cognitive-behavioral therapy

There are also sober living homes. These are group-style homes with rules to help people get a fresh start while staying sober. There are rules to follow and residents must continue outpatient therapy while living there.

Traveling to Arizona for Rehab

At first, traveling far from home for rehab may seem odd. There are many reasons a person might travel for recovery:

  • Focus on recovery without outside obligations
  • Privacy from judgment
  • Covered by insurance
  • New environment
