Local and state law enforcement allocate resources to aggressively combat the problem
Drugs and related activities currently produce serious and harmful consequences in the region and may impact other areas of the nation
The location requires federal resources to effectively respond to the problemNorthern California has held its status as an HIDTA for several years. Drug trafficking and related activities remain a serious concern, requiring individual, local, and federal involvement to combat. At the time of the report, methamphetamine posed the most significant problem, and the potent drug remains a top priority among law enforcement officials, public health officials, and community members. In addition to high rates of methamphetamine production and use, marijuana distribution and use continue to pose a threat to the region. Other illegal drugs, including cocaine and heroin, are also prevalent, the latter increasing in use as a result of the opioid epidemic. Far more Californians die from drug poisoning each year than die in car accidents. More than twice as many Californians die of drug overdoses than are murdered. According to the CDC, opioids, primarily prescription pain relievers and heroin, are the main drugs associated with overdose deaths. In 2014, opioids were involved in 28,647 deaths or 61 percent of all drug overdose deaths nationwide. As a geographical center for trafficking, hundreds to thousands of kilograms of drugs flood the area each year. Breaking free from drugs or alcohol takes an individualized treatment schedule. Two options of substance abuse treatment centers in Portola Valley can help you succeed: either in-patient or out-patient rehab. Inpatient counseling offers long term benefits with extended stays in a top rehab clinic. Outpatient programs may be more fitting but lack the soundness and resources of long-term programs to become clean and sober. Ultimately, the decision is your own, and Rehab Hotline can help you make the best decision. Click the link or call 1-855-510-0786.
