Temecula is a beautiful place -- but nowhere is perfect, and it has a substance abuse problem.
Temecula is located in the southern county called Riverside County and has about 100,000 residents currently living there. It is a relatively young city in terms of official documentation, with its incorporation occurring only in 1989. People visit Temecula because of its excellent, nationally renowned wine country. Each year it has a wine festival called the Temecula Valley Balloon and Wine Festival (which includes both wine and hot air balloons), among others. For this reason, the city's economy is influenced heavily by tourism. But even beautiful tourist destinations have substance abuse issues.
