Expert Insights

I recently read an addiction-related book that brought me to tears several times. The author, Janice Boyd, is from Rancho Cucamonga, California, and is a devout Christian. Her book is titled “Daddy Was a Heroin Addict.” The book reflects on her father’s influence during her young teenage years and into adulthood until his death at the age of 79. Her father was a heroin addict during all of those formative years. The author discusses her father showing up at family functions appearing to be happy, healthy, and funny. What people did not realize, however, was that behind closed doors he was struggling with a heroin addiction that would eventually claim his life. She goes into detail about his troubled and dark sides that would emerge quite often, especially when he was in withdrawal, and how these traumatizing events shaped and formed her into the woman that she is today. As someone who has been in recovery for 12 years, it made me reflect on how my actions impacted my own family and friends. I can only hope that the good that I have done and continue to do in my own recovery helps to mend the heartache I caused the people who I love the most. We never intentionally mean to hurt our loved ones when we are in active addiction, but that inflicted pain is inevitable when addiction drives our every waking moment.

Rancho Cucamonga, CA Drug and Alcohol Statistics

A wide range of public health and safety problems can be directly linked to substance use, including substance use disorders (SUDs), motor vehicle accidents, domestic violence and other types of crime, unplanned pregnancy, and serious health issues such as HIV/AIDS, cancer, birth defects, and heart and liver disease.1 Those who engage in substance use from an early age are also more likely to experience long-term developmental changes as well as a SUD.1

Below are the current trends for SUDs in San Bernardino County, where Rancho Cucamonga is located:1

Cost of Drug Rehab in Rancho Cucamonga

The cost of drug and alcohol rehab in Rancho Cucamonga can be expensive. However, the costs do vary based on several variables, such as the type of facility or treatment program you’re admitted to. Since there’s no approximate answer to how much your treatment will cost, it’s best to have an idea of the variables that will affect the cost.

Here’s what you’ll need to consider:

Treatment setting (inpatient or outpatient)

Features and amenities (luxury or standard rehab facility)

Duration of program (30, 60, or 90 days)

Health insurance plan (private insurance, Medicaid, and Medicare)

Choosing a rehab facility in-network with health insurance provider

Government funding

Location (city vs. suburb)

The cost of attending a drug and alcohol rehab in Rancho Cucamonga shouldn’t be a deciding factor in whether or not you receive care. While insurance can make funding your treatment much easier, there are options out there for all levels of income.

Low-Cost and Free Drug Rehab Centers in Rancho Cucamonga

When we talk about free options for alcohol and drug rehab in Rancho Cucamonga, we’re talking about government-funded facilities. However, this also extends to low-cost facilities that offer more affordable payment options.

Free treatment facilities are either funded on the local, state, or federal level, and they offer basic amenities, which include medically assisted detoxes and 30- to 90-day residential programs. Of course, to qualify for free drug rehabs in Rancho Cucamonga, you must have proof of the following:

  • U.S. citizenship and local residency
  • No income or low income
  • No health insurance coverage

In some cases, the free care also depends on the severity of your SUD, which means you may end up waitlisted or denied funded treatment. However, you have other options, including the following:

  • Choosing a facility that offers sliding scale payments or special financing. These facilities will work with you based on your income level and what you can realistically afford to pay each month.
  • Applying for grants and scholarships. These resources are usually funded by various organizations as charitable contributions. They’re also often funded by independent donors. Best of all, you don’t have to pay back the money you receive. You can find scholarships and grants through the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA)2 or the California Grant Watch website.3

Addiction Treatment Settings

Inpatient: Inpatient is also sometimes referred to as residential care. Inpatient involves you spending both your days and nights, essentially living, within the facility as you go through care. Inpatient offers you the opportunity to focus completely on your treatment, round-the-clock care and support from professionals, and support from your peers who go through rehab with you. Inpatient also allows for a medical detox if you need it, which helps you stay safe and comfortable during withdrawal.

Outpatient: Outpatient offers high-quality treatment while allowing you to live in your own home and go to work or school. This type of rehabilitation offers different levels of care such as partial hospitalization programs (PHPs), intensive outpatient programs (IOPs), standard outpatient, and aftercare. Outpatient is mainly therapy focused and often best for you if you have a mild addiction. This type of care also offers both peer support groups and individual therapies based on your needs.

Specialized Drug Rehabs in Rancho Cucamonga

Another thing to consider when it comes to drug and alcohol rehabs in Rancho Cucamonga is the different types of treatment programs available.

Here’s a quick overview of the type of programs you’ll come across during your search for accredited Rancho Cucamonga drug rehabs:

Rehab for specific populations: There are many facilities and detox centers in Rancho Cucamonga out there that cater to specific populations. This would include the LGBTQ+ community, faith-based communities, veterans, gender-specific, young adults, and pregnant women, among others. These programs tailor to the specific needs of each community while creating a safe space among similar people for them to recover.

Dual diagnosis: Dual-diagnosis care offers treatment for both substance use disorders and mental illness. Dual-diagnosis programs are uniquely equipped to treat those who suffer from mental illness and substance use disorders or alcoholism.

How to Choose the Right Rancho Cucamonga Rehab

Since each facility will operate differently, there’s a lot to consider when choosing the best alcohol and drug rehab in Rancho Cucamonga to meet your needs. Keep in mind that many operate based on a core philosophy for treatment, which means the facility you like may not necessarily offer a recovery program that will work for you.

Here’s a breakdown of what you’ll want to think about when narrowing down the Rancho Cucamonga alcohol rehabs:

  • Location: The location of your facility directly affects the cost as well as the success of your recovery. So, choose a place that you can afford and that will benefit your peace and healing.
  • Costs: Always consider the cost of the facility against what you can realistically afford — keeping all financing options in mind.
  • Treatment type: The type of program you need will depend entirely on your individual case and the recommendation of your doctor or medical team.
  • Philosophy: Be sure you understand the core philosophies that govern each facility to ensure it aligns with your needs and beliefs.
  • Program rules: Different facilities have different rules regarding scheduling, visitor allowances, chores, and other aspects of care. Make sure you’re OK with the facility’s rules to ensure a smooth transition into your program.
  • Amenities: Each facility will have different amenities to offer. This could range from private or shared rooms to yoga and meditation classes. All of which can make a huge difference in your recovery.

Should You Travel for Drug and Alcohol Rehab in Rancho Cucamonga?

rancho cucamunga aerial viewMany people choose to seek treatment for a SUD away from home, and that would include temporarily relocating to Rancho Cucamonga. The suburb of Rancho Cucamonga is centrally located, just 37 miles east of Los Angeles. This means if you’re traveling from San Diego, L.A., or Palm Springs, you won’t be too far from home and you’ll also be close enough to both the mountains and the beach.

Many people choose to travel for drug and alcohol rehab in Rancho Cucamonga (or relocate in general) because it allows them to:

  • Be closer to family and friends for support (or further away)
  • Get away from the negative environment that made them develop a SUD
  • Have more anonymity during recovery, protecting their privacy
  • Attend a treatment facility that caters to specific populations, such as LGBTQ+ or women’s only centers
  • Access better quality or more affordable care

If you’re thinking about traveling to Rancho Cucamonga detox centers or drug rehabs, you’ll need to consider your needs and how they figure into the options that the suburb has available. You’ll also want to think about other things, such as the costs and what type of setting you want your treatment to take place in.

Alcohol and Drug Laws in Rancho Cucamonga, CA

The state of California has been working hard to create legislation that’s more supportive of its residents struggling with substance use disorders. Here’s an overview of the alcohol and drug laws that apply to this Southern California city.

Good Samaritan Drug Overdose Act: The Good Samaritan law offers a certain amount of protection for individuals experiencing an overdose or individuals trying to help someone experiencing an overdose. You’ll find that this law exists in virtually every state and prevents individuals from arrest and prosecution when seeking urgent medical help while having taken illicit substances or having them at the scene of the emergency.

AB 1535: Pharmacy Naloxone Bill: In addition to the Good Samaritan law, the Naloxone bill was passed to allow participating pharmacies to sell naloxone to regular citizens for the reversal of opioid overdoses. This means that anyone can access and administer naloxone in the event of an overdose emergency when necessary without any subsequent legal implications.

CA Proposition 47: California’s Proposition 47 is a bill that aims to reclassify drug possession offenses making most felonies only misdemeanors. It should be noted, however, that felony charges can still occur under certain circumstances and misdemeanors often come with serious consequences, including jail time. Ultimately, the goal is to ensure that individuals with SUDs and non-violent offenders can receive a second chance or the necessary support for recovery whenever possible.
