The city of Fremont is located in the southeast San Francisco Bay Area, and part of Alameda County. Fremont is the fourth most populous city in the San Francisco Bay Area, because Fremont is the closest city to Silicon Valley, it has a rapidly expanding base of both the tech industry and workers. Many of the drug problems in the city affect those working within the tech sector, which can often be high-stress jobs. Some of the common drugs abused by those working in the tech sector include prescription drugs such as stimulants. This is why it is essential that anyone struggling with addiction seeks out help from the drug rehab programs in Fremont.

Marcel Gemme has been helping people struggling with addiction for over 19 years. He first started as an intake counselor for a drug rehabilitation center in 2000. During his 5 years as an intake counselor, he helped many addicts get the treatment they needed. He also dealt with the families and friends of those people; he saw first-hand how much strain addiction puts on a family and how it can tear relationships apart. With drug and alcohol problems constantly on the rise in the United States and Canada, he decided to use the Internet as a way to educate and help many more people in both those countries. This was 15 years ago. Since then, Marcel has built two of the largest websites in the U.S. and Canada which reach and help millions of people each year. He is an author and a leader in the field of drug and alcohol addiction. His main focus is threefold: education, prevention and rehabilitation. To this day, he still strives to be at the forefront of technology in order to help more and more people. He is a Licensed Drug and Alcohol Treatment Specialist graduate with Honours of Stratford Career Institute. Marcel has also received a certificate from Harvard for completing a course entitled The Opioid Crisis in America and a certificate from The University of Adelaide for completing a course entitled AddictionX: Managing Addiction: A Framework for Succesful Treatment.
