Drug and Alcohol Addiction In Hayward, California

Hayward, California, is the 6th largest city in the East Bay area with a population of roughly 150,000 people. Known as the “Heart of the Bay,” Hayward is located in the San Francisco-Oakland-Fremont Metropolitan Statistical Area and has become a bustling center of commerce, manufacturing, and trade. Despite its economic success, the city has unfortunately seen an increase in alcohol and drug related issues in recent years, specifically concerning Opioids. In 2016, an estimated 5.6% of people ages 12 years and older (79,816 people) misused Opioids in Alameda County, where Hayward resides. Additionally, 1% (14,254 people) had an Opioid dependency.

For those seeking addiction treatment in the area, the city of Hayward offers multiple rehabilitation resources that can help. These resources include: inpatient and outpatient programs, crisis intervention, counseling, and 12-step programs. Beyond the city, the state of California has over 25 drug and alcohol rehab centers throughout if traveling for care is a feasible option.

The Opioid Crisis In Hayward

In Alameda County, Opioid prescriptions were written at a rate of 536 prescriptions per 1,000 residents in 2015, which is equal to roughly 1 prescription for every 2 residents. While Alameda County Opioid abuse rates may not be as dramatic or high as the national level, Opioid use in the county exceeds that of other Californian counties and continues to be a great concern for the area. Hayward has the second highest rate of Opioid-related emergency department visits out of all the cities in Alameda County, and is second only to Oakland.

We’re seeing it in the field, we’re seeing people come in the emergency room, we’re seeing people in the hospital and we’re seeing people in the morgue.

- Dr. Kathleen Clanon, Medical Director of the Health Care Service Agency of Alameda County

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, more than 70% of Opioid misuse cases involved medications taken from a friend or relative. In an effort to reduce prescription medication abuse, the MEDS Coalition enacted the Alameda County Safe Drug Disposal Ordinance to help prevent misuse by older adults, reduce access to medication for young people, prevent theft of medication, and stop medication from entering waterways and harming the environment. Hayward has 2 separate drop off locations for extra or unused Opioids for residents, including the Alameda County Household Hazardous Waste Drop-Off Site – Hayward and Ted’s Drugs.

A 2015 CDC study found that misuse of prescription Opioid Painkillers, such as Vicodin and OxyContin, is the strongest risk factor for future Heroin use. In Alameda County, 3 out of 4 new Heroin users report having abused prescription Painkillers first. Alameda County has a higher rate of HIV/AIDS crude cases than the state of California, with 447 cases between the years of 2013-2015. This may partly be attributed to the increase in Heroin use in the area, as shared needles increase the risk of contracting the disease, as do the risky behaviors that Heroin produces within users.
