Drug Treatment Centers in Staunton, Virginia

Last updated: 21 December 2021


Staunton is a city that can be found in the state of Virginia. It is home to an estimated population of around 24,000 people as of 2019 according to the United States Census Bureau. This makes Staunton one of the smaller cities in the state by population. But being small does not offer the protection it once did from crime and drug addiction in particular. Since America's drug epidemic began in the early 2000s, drug use has become a major problem even in rural America. In 2019 there were 15.4 drug deaths for every 100,000 residents of the state of Virginia according to a report from America's Health Rankings, a rate which shows only a small percentage of the people who struggled with an addiction that year. Thankfully the rest of those people are still alive, but not for long if they do not get help. This is why you should never wait or ignore signs of drug use in a loved one. People often do this because they doubt their suspicions or think it will just make the person upset. This may be true but doing nothing almost guarantees that they will experience severe consequences before being ready to change if it's not too late. Act now while you can still save a life.

More Information

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. To this day, he still strives to be at the forefront of technology in order to help more and more people. He is a Licensed Drug and Alcohol Treatment Specialist graduate with Honours of Stratford Career Institute. Marcel has also received a certificate from Harvard for completing a course entitled The Opioid Crisis in America and a certificate from The University of Adelaide for completing a course entitled AddictionX: Managing Addiction: A Framework for Succesful Treatment.
