Petersburg is a city that can be found in the state of Virginia. It is home to a population that has been estimated to be around 31,000 people as of 2019 according to the United States Census Bureau, making Petersburg one of the smaller cities in the state by population. But even being small or rural is not enough anymore to avoid the scourge of drug addiction and overdose which has gripped the nation since the drug epidemic began in the early 2000s. According to America's Health Rankings, in 2019 there were 15.4 drug deaths for every 100,000 residents of the state, a rate which shows only a glimpse of the many people who struggle with addiction each year and don't get the help they need from drug and alcohol rehabilitation and detox services. Every single person who died could have had a chance if they'd gotten help before it was too late. But many people accidentally overdose before ever being ready to get help. This is why it is an error to ever wait or ignore signs of drug use in a loved one. A tragedy could strike at any moment when someone is actively using drugs. Intervention services work, so to not use them could make the difference between life and death.

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.
