Simi Valley Hospital Drug Detox Program Meets Critical Community Need
Sacramento Business Journal

An alarming spike in heroin addiction in eastern Ventura County that led to an innovative partnership between Simi Valley Hospital-Adventist Health and area high schools is the subject of a new video produced by the California Hospital Association (CHA).

The community benefit program is centered around an acute detox program, which also performs random drug testing on students whose parents give their consent. In first seven months of the program, more than 50 patients had been admitted to the detox program.
