Drug Abuse Is On the Rise

As is the case in Los Angeles, illicit drugs are widely available in San Diego due largely to the city’s proximity to Mexico—the Mexican border is a mere 17 miles from downtown San Diego. Drug trafficking is prevalent in the area and prohibited substances are smuggled into the city from Mexico and South America often.

In the 1990s, San Diego was known as the “Meth capital of the world”—a title that, until recently, was slowly becoming obsolete thanks to increased education, prevention, treatment and enforcement in the area.

However, Meth seems to be making a comeback in San Diego, with increasing amounts of the drug being smuggled in from Mexico.

Other drugs commonly smuggled into San Diego include:

  • Marijuana
  • Cocaine
  • Heroin

Alcohol, Methamphetamine, Heroin, and Marijuana make up the top 4 most commonly treated addictions in San Diego.
