San Bernardino Drug & Alcohol Rehab, Detox & Treatment Resources

Tucked in what is known as the Inland Empire, San Bernardino, California, ranks on the list of California’s largest cities as well as largest cities in the whole of the United States. Known for its wealth of rivers, lakes and underground aquifers, the city features a beautiful skyline with the San Bernardino Mountains in the distance, the San Bernardino National Forest, and a host of other beautiful, natural spots nearby such as the Santa Ana River.

However, while the San Bernardino Valley is home to wealth of aesthetically beautiful natural resources, deep in the heart of this historic city lies a fearsome drug problem. The city itself filed for Chapter 9 bankruptcy in 2012, and a growing opioid and methamphetamine problem has been escalating in recent years.

The New York Times reported that the median household income for the city of San Bernardino was just over $37,000 in 2013. When compared to the median income of the whole of California, which is $56,000 and change, it’s easy to see how both poverty and drugs has seized the city.

In all of Riverside County, emergency room visits from overdose or abuse of painkillers doubled in the years from 2006 to 2014. Drugs have become a big problem in San Bernardino, and the use of illicit Fentanyl is also on the rise. However, there is hope for those struggling with the disease of addiction. San Bernardino drug rehab centers and national centers such as The Recovery Village help provide a road map for struggling alcoholics and addicts to get back on the road to recovery.

You’re not alone in this struggle.
