Southern California has been touted as one of the few places in the United States yet to experience the full brunt of the opioid abuse and overdose epidemic.1 However, data from all over the area, including small cities like Redlands in San Bernardino County, show that too many people in fact do abuse opioid drugs, both prescription and illicit.

Throughout the state of California overall, between 2006 and 2009, opioid-involved overdose deaths rose 34%, and pharmaceutical painkillers represented about 82% of these deaths. Between 2006 and 2013, heroin-related deaths began to go up, too. In 2006, there were 268 overdose deaths involving heroin, and by 2013, that number went up to 483 deaths. By that year, heroin accounted for 25% of all opioid-related overdose deaths in the state.2

Heroin addiction appears to be back on the rise in California, including San Bernardino County, after declining since the early 1990s. This is likely due to the national crisis of prescription opioid misuse, which began in the early 2000s. Currently, about 80% of people who abuse heroin first started abusing opioids after they received a prescription for narcotic painkillers.3

Detox from opioids is commonly unpleasant, but can be more comfortably managed with medications, such as buprenorphine. Medical detox, combined with therapy to change behaviors, has helped thousands of San Bernardino County residents treat their opioid addictions. Contact us today for help.

Before recovery can commence, the body must be cleaned of the abused substance. This is known as detoxification. Many narcotics will leave the addicted individual with unpleasant side effects or withdrawal symptoms once the body has become accustomed to getting the substance. Medical detox can minimize the discomfort for anyone seeking to get clean and sober.
