In 2018 in San Diego County, there were 210 prescription opioid-related deaths and 36 prescription drug-related deaths. Within that same year in the county heroin overdose was the cause of the 105 deaths, and all other drugs and alcohol were the cause of 373 deaths. According to the Medical Examiner, heroin was the most commonly found drug, followed by fentanyl, codeine, and oxycodone. Prescription drug abuse is a common problem that can start early in life. Adolescents, for example, who begin to misuse prescription drugs, find unused prescriptions within their parent's homes. The misuse of prescription drugs will lead to addiction and eventually abuse of other types of drugs later in life. This makes the substance use treatment programs in Chula Vista even more essential.
