Drug Rehab Centers in Riverside County, California

Riverside County is located in the southern portion of the state, and the population is over 2.1 million residents and is the fourth most populous county in the state. Along with being part of the San Bernardino-Ontario metropolitan statistical areas, it is also included in the Los Angeles-Long Beach combined statistical area. Riverside County provides extensive resources for people struggling with addiction. Those looking for help can find it through Its Up To Us Riverside, where local mental health resources are available, suicide prevention support, and national resources. Drug and alcohol treatment resources are also available for parents, youth, young adults, men, women, veterans, older adults, LGBTQ, along with faith-based programs. Drug and alcohol abuse is a problem that affects many of the families within the county and finding the right type of help will determine the long-term sobriety.

The opioid epidemic affected Riverside County in many ways, and in 2018 the number of overdose deaths due to opioids reached 142, which was 5.7 deaths per 100,000 persons. During that same year, 560 people were admitted to emergency rooms because of opioid-related problems, and 273 people were hospitalized due to an opioid overdose. The amount of prescription opioid pain medication handed out reached 1,394,793. Within the state, the number of heroin-related emergency department visits in California more than tripled between 2006 and 2017. When counties within the state started reducing the number of opioid prescriptions given, the demand for heroin increased. Mexican drug cartels began to meet this demand and began smuggling in heroin throughout the state. Drug treatment programs in the county can help addicts who are addicted to opioids, whether prescription or illegal drugs such as heroin.

    Marcel Gemme has been helping people struggling with addiction for over 19 years. He first started as an intake counselor for a drug rehabilitation center in 2000. During his 5 years as an intake counselor, he helped many addicts get the treatment they needed. He also dealt with the families and friends of those people; he saw first-hand how much strain addiction puts on a family and how it can tear relationships apart. With drug and alcohol problems constantly on the rise in the United States and Canada, he decided to use the Internet as a way to educate and help many more people in both those countries. This was 15 years ago. Since then, Marcel has built two of the largest websites in the U.S. and Canada which reach and help millions of people each year. He is an author and a leader in the field of drug and alcohol addiction. His main focus is threefold: education, prevention and rehabilitation.
