Methamphetamine abuse is a serious problem in Riverside County, which includes the small city of Hemet, California. Although the news with regard to drug abuse in the U.S. overwhelmingly focuses on the opioid abuse epidemic, and the more than 100 daily opioid overdose deaths,1 many residents of Hemet and other cities in Riverside County struggle with abuse of and addiction to methamphetamine.2 In 2012, stimulants such as methamphetamine drove 35% of drug addiction treatment admissions that year.3

Riverside County is, unfortunately, part of the pipeline of drug dealers smuggling meth into the U.S. from Mexico.4 Although the plague of meth addiction in the U.S. in the early 2000s involved domestic labs, now “super labs” in Mexico produce very pure meth and sell it for very cheap prices throughout California and other states. People addicted to this powerful stimulant now have a source of higher-potency, and more dangerous, meth.4 Californians also have high rates of abuse of drugs like marijuana (now legal in the state), cocaine, and prescription opioids.3,5
