Drugs & Alcohol Rehabilitation Programs in Modesto, California

Drug and Alcohol Abuse in the City of Modesto, Stanislaus County, California

Situated in Stanislaus County, the city of Modesto is the largest city in the county and located in the Central Valley between Sacramento and Fresno. Within the Central Valley of California, the National Drug Intelligence Center has indicated it is a high-intensity drug trafficking area, per a drug market analysis. In the early 2000s, some of the drug threats facing the area include indoor cannabis cultivation, which led to numerous violent incidents. Moreover, local law enforcement at that time increasingly targeted methamphetamine lab operations; however, as of 2019, the Mexican drug cartels have almost completely taken over the production and distribution of methamphetamine into the state.

Overall the Central Valley of California, where the city of Modesto is situated, has been a primary source area and a national level distribution center of illicit drugs supplied by Mexican drug cartels. The Central Valley region has served as a national regional and local source of methamphetamine. The opioid epidemic has over shadowed the impact of methamphetamine abuse. Often the homeless population in the area is targeted by drug dealers. In the 2018 Stanislaus County Point in Time Count Survey Results indicated that over 1300 people were living in emergency shelters, transitional homes, and who were also unsheltered. Substance abuse is a devastating problem that affects many homeless, and it is a constant struggle to find help and treatment.

Here is a list of the different services in Modesto, California. The list can be incomplete so please do not hesitate to contact one of our counselors at 1-800-304-2219.
