Addiction Treatment in Ontario

Ontario, like many California cities, has taken a few important steps to make addiction treatment accessible for its residents. In 2018, Governor Brown signed multiple bills into law, a majority aimed at regulating the addiction treatment industry in the state. SB 823 requires all licensed rehabs to implement the American Society of Addiction Medicine’s treatment requirements as a minimum standard of care. This will allow more people entering detox and rehab the opportunity to take addiction treatment medicine (like buprenorphine) to manage their symptoms of withdrawal or drug cravings.

Studies show that opioid addiction treatment medication yields a success rate between 60% and 90%.

San Bernardino County also provides “a full range of substance use disorder treatment services” to residents regardless of background. However, priority admission to treatment will be given to pregnant women, people who inject drugs, and those in need of treatment. Services are available through county clinics and contracted organizations.
