Drug Treatment Centers in Winchester, Virginia

Last updated: 21 December 2021


Winchester is a city that can be found in the state of Virginia. Home to an estimated population of around 28,000 people as of 22018 according to the United States Census Bureau, Winchester is one of the smallest cities in the state. But being small does not mean that an area is safe, particularly since America's drug epidemic began in the early 2000s. According to America's Health Rankings, in 2019 there were 15.4 drug deaths in the state of Virginia, a rate which shows exactly how many people did not get the help that they needed from drug and alcohol rehabilitation and detox services. Each drug death was a life that could have been saved if the person had gotten the right kind of help for their needs at the right point in their life. But so many people accidentally overdose before ever being ready to get help. This is why you should never wait to do something about a loved one who you suspect is using drugs. Intervention services work, but only if they are used before it is too late. No one wants to look back after tragedy and regret not doing everything possible to save a life. Act now before it is too late.

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.
