Pathways Recovery Publishes In-Depth Blog on Addiction in California’s Homeless Population

Roseville, CA: Just outside the Greater Sacramento area is Pathways Recovery, an established drug and alcohol addiction center with residential programming for men. Pathways Recovery offers its clients individualized treatment options and a residential program for a duration of 28 to 90 days.

Boasting a small client to staff ratio, Pathways Recovery prides itself on bringing a home-like atmosphere to addiction treatment. With private room offerings during residential treatment and a cozy treatment facility, clients at this rehab center are encouraged to form bonds with and support one another as they go through treatment.

Addiction in California

Much of Pathways Recovery’s treatment philosophy is focused on encouraging healthy living for all clients. Instead of focusing solely on the consequences of addiction and physical symptoms, Pathways Recovery encourages their clients to choose a well-rounded healthy lifestyle to follow both now and into their future recovery. Accompanying the standard offerings of addiction programs are unique efforts to promote overall physical, mental, and spiritual well-being.

The Pathways' curriculum offers its clients a chance at living an entirely new, healthier lifestyle. The treatment center provides opportunities to work out in a gym and learn more about the nature of addiction and proper nutrition.

Alongside their detox, residential, and outpatient programs, Pathways Recovery also maintains and regularly publishes informative blogs about substance use, substances, side effects of addiction, as well as other topical addiction information. Recently on their blog, Pathways Recovery has published a blog detailing the problem of addiction in California’s homeless community.

The blog begins by offering the readers a brief history of Skid Row, one of the most infamous areas for homeless populations in California. According to the blog, Skid Row was not always known for its large homeless population and unsanitary conditions. At the beginning of the 20th century, working class populations began to move into hotels in the area, which at the time was some of the most affordable housing.

As building codes began to change, building owners began to demolish their buildings instead of choosing the costly option of updating the building. Many became homeless during this time, the blog notes. The black market that arose in the area sold not only drugs, but items like stolen bicycle parts or human organs.

Of course today, addiction in the homeless communities remains a prevalent issue. Pathways Recovery identifies several different factors that are barriers to addiction treatment. According to the Sacramento Public Health Department, factors such as housing needs, high rates of comorbidity, social isolation, safety concerns, and distrust of authority all act as barriers to treatment.

Pathways Recovery is answering the need for quality addiction care with personalized care and a commitment to overall wellness. Individuals interested in learning more about Pathways Recovery’s program can contact a staff member by calling (916) 435-7334.
