Drug and Alcohol Rehabilitation in Erie, Pennsylvania
With a population of over 100,000 residents Erie, PA is the Commonwealth's primary access point to Lake Erie and the Saint Lawrence Seaway. Because this is such a large city, crime, poverty and substance abuse are prevalent. Though Erie's largest employer GE Transportation employs at least 5,300 individuals, many people here in this beautiful city struggle to get by and some have found drugs/alcohol to be a substantial way to cope. Enslaved by the chains of addiction many have lost their lives or come close. With heroin alone 48% of the 60 drug related deaths that occurred last year, heroin was the cause.
