There was a time when being in San Francisco meant wearing flowers in your hair and passing around a friendly joint. Unfortunately, those days of relative innocence are long gone, replaced by an epidemic of serious, dangerous drugs such as heroin, crystal meth and crack. Marijuana can certainly have a terrible effect on your life, but nobody ever died from taking a toke. A lot of corpses have been found, though, with needles sticking out of their arms.
The good news is that there are a great many excellent facilities for drug rehab in San Francisco. There are two approaches one might take when deciding on the best place to begin recovery: you might choose a center that has specialized treatment procedures for the particular drug you are addicted to, or you might choose to be with others who share such attributes as your age, gender, sexual orientation or cultural affiliation.
At times, the two aspects overlap. It’s an oversimplification, to be sure, but generally speaking, members of the sizable GLBT community in San Francisco are less likely to be heroin addicts as they are to be abusers of the so-called “party drugs” such as ecstasy, special K, poppers and crystal meth. In the Asian-American community, opiates are more likely to be problematic.
