LOS ANGELES | CONNECTICUT - The bright lights and big city of Hollywood attracts young people in throngs with promises of fulfilled dreams and a charmed life. While the draw and the excitement initially seems like everything they could have hoped for, nowadays there's a darker side-a side that is becoming synonymous with something other than fame.
"Hollywood is a hot bed of drug addiction", a spokesperson for Mountainside Drug Rehab and Alcohol Treatment Center states. "With money and power, comes responsibility-responsibility that many find themselves unable to deal with. When arriving in Hollywood, they just can't imagine a life other than what they had dreamed-a life of glamour, of fame, of fortune. They don't realize the pressure that surrounds all of those things. When they finally realize their dreams, that unexpected pressure can cause an implosion and, instead of dealing with it in a healthy, productive way, many choose the easy way out-a way to numb themselves, a way to temporarily escape. And, often times that temporary escape becomes a permanent way of life until either they get into serious legal trouble or until someone who is genuinely concerned intervenes and gives them a wake-up call. They soon discover that their money can buy just about anything-except the one thing that truly eludes them: happiness."
"California's drug rehab centers are growing at an unprecedented rate and the catalyst for this growth is unrelenting." Until there is a fundamental change in the Hollywood | Los Angeles party mentality, the only answer to its ever-increasing problem is effective drug rehab centers.
