Speaker
Rocky Hill, owner of Hill Alcohol and Drug Treatment, has served the Southwest Riverside County since 1986. Mr. Hill will share insight about current drug and alcohol use and abuse for the region that may be surprising to parents who are unaware. He stated, "Heroin is cheap, pure and readily accessible. Meth has taken a backseat but not too far back on the bus. The synergistic nature of opiate addiction is that with every person who gets addicted, you get a new dealer who has to find a way to afford his own use."
