Perhaps because it was one of the first states in the U.S. to make marijuana legal for medical use, California has always been considered progressive in its ideals. While a recovering addict might experience discrimination in many other places, California is largely accepting of people from all walks of life — including addicts — and welcomes these individuals into its laid-back, beachside way of life.
Although there have been many attempts to explain why some addicts are reluctant to seek treatment, one of the most prohibitive deterrents to rehabilitation has traditionally been the cost of treatment. Even today, price tags in the tens of thousands of dollars aren’t uncommon for inpatient programs; however, the state has recently begun to overhaul its substance abuse treatment system so that low-income individuals on “Medi-Cal” (the So-Cal version of Medicaid) can more easily get the help they need. In fact, California is the first state to receive federal permission to do this.
