Richmond is the capital of Virginia and is one of America’s oldest cities. Named after the English town of Richmond in the UK, this city is famed for its civil war museum, eclectic antique shops, and Federal-style mansions. However, Richmond has also become known for its drug abuse crisis in recent years, particularly regarding opioids like heroin, fentanyl, and prescription medications.

Fortunately, Richmond is also home to numerous drug and alcohol treatment centers, many of which focus specifically on opioid addiction. These centers provide much-needed hope, recovery, and rehabilitation for individuals who are fighting alcohol and substance dependencies.
