Families in and around Santee, California, are increasingly worrying about methamphetamine contributing to high rates of addiction and drug abuse, as well as high rates of drug overdose deaths. In 2016, meth was one of the most significant causes of unintentional drug overdose deaths in San Diego County.1 Since 2011, meth has been one of the top 2 most commonly drugs seen in overdose deaths in San Diego County residents ages 10–69, according to the county medical examiner.1
Those who died of methamphetamine overdose often had other issues that contributed to their deaths. The county medical examiner reported that 76% of those who died of a methamphetamine overdose also had heart disease. Additionally, many who died of a meth overdose had other drugs in their system at the time, and in half of those cases, the other substance was heroin.1
Addiction to heroin, methamphetamine, alcohol, or other drugs can be deadly if left untreated. A rehab center can help you or your loved one begin recovering from alcohol and live a life free of mind-altering substances.
The good news for residents of Santee is that those who struggle with methamphetamine abuse or addiction to other drugs can benefit from intensive drug addiction treatment and intervention. If you are struggling, learn more about how treatment can help you heal now.

great program genuinly care
This facility is amazing! My cousin was treated here and not only is the location beautiful, but the treatment that she received was incredible! Her therapists were very attentive and they treated her co-occurring disorder. This was the first time she has been able to maintain her sobriety thanks to this location. My only complaint about this location is that they don't allow cell phones, but I think that's with any rehab center. However, my cousin was able to call us from the home phone there to give us an update on her treatment. This was a great location and service. Somehow they were able to reach her in a way that previous facilities weren't. They customized her care by her needs and situation.

You provided a safe environment, scheduled group therapy, case planning and access to outside meetings. Strong fellowship and suggestion of a sponsor in the AA Program. One day to the next, leadership and a individual role were vital to my own success. Thank you Jake Cancellieri
