Substance Abuse Trends and Statistics for the City of Palm Desert

According to the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA), much of the methamphetamine that enters the U.S. is shipped through the Coachella Valley (including Palm Desert) along Interstate 10.

The DEA seized 1,057 pounds of methamphetamine in Riverside and San Bernardino Counties in 2017. By 2019, they had seized 2,180 pounds of methamphetamine in the same area.
Methamphetamine played a role in 56 percent of Riverside County’s drug and alcohol-related deaths in 2018-2019.

The Palm Springs Desert Sun reported that in 2019, 55% of homeless people in Coachella Valley struggled with drug addiction. The Desert Sun conducted a survey of 200 homeless people in 2018, which also discovered that 44% said they suffered from mental health issues.

Local Efforts to Address Drug Problems in Palm Desert

Riverside County Department of Mental Health and the Riverside University Health System provide several services to assist people with substance use disorders in Palm Desert and nearby desert communities. Included in these services is the County Drug Court and Recovery Opportunity Center. Riverside County’s behavioral health and assessment center is located at 74923 Hovley Lane East in Palm Desert, which is open Monday through Thursday from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. and on Fridays from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

Experts Say …

Methamphetamine has been a major drug problem in Palm Desert and the rest of Coachella Valley for over 30 years. David Fawcett, Ph.D., L.C.S.W. told ABC News 3 reporter Jeff Stahl, “We’ve seen drug trends come and go over the years, but this one came and has never really gone away.”

Notable Historical Events Related to Drug Use in Palm Desert

In 2014, California state voters passed Proposition 47, the Safe Neighborhoods and Schools Act. The law made possession and use of methamphetamine a misdemeanor, not a felony, limiting the ability of law enforcement to cite and prosecute people for methamphetamine use.
