Drug And Alcohol Addiction In San Juan Capistrano

The nationwide Opioid crisis has created many problems for San Juan Capistrano and for all of California. In 2018, there were 2,311 fatal Opioid overdoses in California. This statistic shows an increase from 2017, when opioid overdoses killed 2,199 California residents. In Orange County, 249 people died from an opioid overdose last year and an additional 275 people suffered an opioid overdose and survived. Additionally, healthcare providers in Orange County in 2018 wrote almost 1,400,000 prescription for Opioids, a major contributor to the surge in opioid-related deaths which continue to afflict California and the country.

Official state data indicates that in San Juan Capistrano and in surrounding areas under the city’s ZIP codes, there were 11.97 fatal opioid overdoses for every 100,000 people in a give year, a rate which exceeds the average of 7.4 fatal overdoses for every 100,000 people for all of Orange County.

To help reduce the impact of opioid addiction, some Orange County residents have donated money and joined organizations to educate their community about the dangers of opioids and distribute naloxone to people who are most at risk for overdose. Naloxone is a medication which reverses the effects of opioids. Until a court ordered it to halt its operations last year, Orange County also hosted a public needle-exchange program to prevent people struggling with Heroin addiction from contracting diseases from used needles.
