Homeland, CA is one of the smaller suburbs of Riverside County, with a population of only 7,086 people.1 Here in Homeland, most residents own their homes despite the median income being only $49,180 — which is slightly lower than the national average.1 While Homeland may be small, it’s home to plenty of interesting things to do and see, including a large number of parks to visit, farmer’s markets to shop, mountains to hike, and the Cartoberfest car show.2
Unfortunately, being a part of Riverside County means that Homeland, CA has been vastly impacted by the influx of illicit substances that are trafficked through the now notorious “drug pipeline.”3 Starting in 2012, local Riverside authorities have begun uncovering large amounts of illicit substances being trafficked over the Mexican-American Border directly through Riverside. These substances so far have included (but are not limited to) heroin, cocaine, MDMA, methamphetamines, fentanyl, and even marijuana.3
The rate of drug-related crimes in Homeland, CA is significantly higher compared to the general amount of non-related drug crimes in the area.4 In fact, Homeland, CA is currently ranked in the first percentile for safety regarding drug-related crimes, meaning that 99% of all cities in California are safer.4 The average rate of drug-related crimes in the area is 21.90 per 1,000 people, and it’s largely due to individuals passing through who don’t live in Homeland.4
Nonetheless, the suburb of Homeland endures its fair share of overdose-related deaths, which are primarily attributed to the opioid use that has spiraled out of control in all of Riverside County and the rest of the United States.5 Starting in 2011, opioid use from prescription opioids to heroin has steadily risen to an 80% increase in overdose-related deaths.5
Unfortunately, this is no surprise as authorities have reported that the cause for such an extreme spike in drug-related overdoses and deaths is primarily attributed to fentanyl use.6 Fentanyl is an incredibly potent synthetic opioid designed for medical use only. However, it has become a popular cutting agent used among substance traffickers to extend their supply and guarantee addiction—which guarantees returning customers.6
It’s often used in its powder form which allows it to be easily mixed with cocaine, heroin, MDMA, and other powdered illicit substances.6 It’s also colorless (white) and odorless, making it impossible to notice when mixed with other substances without proper testing.6
With fentanyl being as potent as it is, as well as untraceable to the naked eye, it’s an incredibly dangerous time to have a substance use disorder. All it takes is a small amount of the synthetic opioid mixed with another illicit substance to cause an overdose and subsequently death if the overdose is left untreated.7
Homeland, CA is located within 25 miles of at least 54 different treatment facilities.8 This includes:8
You’ll also find transitional housing, interim care, hospital inpatient care, and telemedicine programs within the same distance.8
The state of California as a whole has 1,611 treatment facilities to offer its residents in total with only 571 of those facilities offering residential care.9 It’s important to keep in mind that there may not be immediate availability since the number of treatment facilities in total does not reflect the large population of the state. However, individuals can get immediate help via interim care until a facility becomes available for long-term treatment if needed.
Those with substance use disorders can also find the support they need at any time with one of the many Narcotics Anonymous (NA) and Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) support group meetings close to home.
