The city of Temecula, California, has a population just shy of 109,000 residents, 1 but it is located in Riverside County, which has been called “America’s drug pipeline” and faces its share of problems with drug abuse and a steady influx of narcotics into the region.2 In 2015, the Drug Enforcement Administration seized more than 2,500 pounds of meth and nearly 400 pounds of heroin from the county.2

Heroin and meth are both frequently used via needle injection, a method of use which is a major risk factor for the spread of infectious disease. Injection drug abuse is a major cause of HIV and hepatitis C transmission around the country, and this is true in Riverside County, as well. On average, over 245 people are diagnosed with HIV each year in the county.3 Generally, new HIV diagnoses are decreasing, both in California and around the US. Unfortunately, as rates of illicit drug abuse continue to rise, more needle sharing and unsafe sex practices may lead to another spike in these infections in addition to increased rates of hepatitis C, tuberculosis, and other dangerous conditions.

Temecula residents who abuse drugs also face the risk of overdose. In 2016, approximately 4.5 of every 100,000 residents died of an opioid-related overdose. Both heroin and prescription painkillers contribute to this number. In that same year, there were nearly 1.6 million prescriptions for opioids in the county.4 While substance abuse and addiction have serious dangers that include overdose death, there is hope. Treatment can help you get sober and place these risks behind you.

Treatment usually includes a safe medical detox period followed by ongoing therapy to help you address the issues that contribute to your desire to use drugs.

Before recovery can get underway, the system must be made drug-free. This is called detoxification. Much of the time, alcohol and drugs will leave the user with unpleasant side effects or withdrawal symptoms once the body has become accustomed to the drug. Professional detoxification can diminish the symptoms for anyone seeking to start fresh.
