Drug And Alcohol Addiction In Fontana, California

Fontana, California, is a large city in San Bernardino County with a population of about 200,000 people. Many residents in Fontana are currently experiencing alcohol dependency and substance abuse. While the county is seeing an overall decline in substance use disorder (SUD) admissions, there has been an 103% increase in Opioid-related admissions. Additionally, alcohol-related admissions have increased by 18%. The county also has a higher rate of alcohol-involved collisions compared to the state of California.

Above all, it is important to remember that treatment is available to those with a SUD who need help. San Bernardino County has several treatment centers ranging from outpatient programs, community based centers, and Opioid-based treatment programs. While it may be discouraging to not find many options within the city, traveling for treatment can come with benefits. Leaving an area where a particular substance abuse habit formed may provide the physical and mental space needed for recovery.

The Opioid And Heroin Crisis In Fontana

Fontana, California, and San Bernardino County have experienced a moderate decline in the number of people checking into emergency rooms for Opioid or Heroin overdoses, which can be fatal. However, the Opioid and Heroin epidemic still poses serious challenges for Fontana. In 2015, 131 people in San Bernardino County suffered overdoses after using Heroin or at least 1 Opioid. Fontana and San Bernardino County lost 36 people to Opioid and Heroin overdoses in 2016 and at least 35 people in 2017. Multiple Fontana residents have recently lost their lives to Fentanyl, an Opioid which is more lethal than Heroin. The high costs of Opioid addiction and Heroin use represent such a serious public health crisis that San Bernardino County recently joined a lawsuit against the companies and pharmacies that manufacture and market addictive Opioid drugs.
