Temecula, California, is a small but growing city in Riverside County, which is part of the Inland Empire between Los Angeles and San Diego. This area is primarily suburban and desert, but the almost 109,000 residents of Temecula chose their home as a quiet getaway from larger cities.1 Riverside County as a whole struggles with opioid addiction, which can lead to overdose deaths.
Between 2006 and 2015, overdose deaths rose to 15.2 out of every 100,000 people. Opioid drug overdoses increased 10% between 2011 and 2015, and heroin-related deaths rose 80% during that same time frame. This put the opioid overdose rate in Riverside County slightly higher than that of the state of California.2
About 37% of all drug overdose deaths involved opioids in 2015.2 Heroin abuse is currently fueling this trend, particularly because fentanyl is frequently mixed with or sold in place of heroin, which increases the risk of rapid overdose and death.
It’s imperative to get treatment for opioid addiction before an overdose occurs. We can help you connect with rehabs that can help. Call our helpline today.

The program improved significantly since my first time in treatment. They have become much more organized and structured and have implemented a few new amenities I really enjoyed such as fitness trainer. New staff members since last stay are great. They conduct exceptional groups and kept me engaged the whole time.
