The headlines about methamphetamine—meth—have been grim. This highly addictive drug leaves a path of
destruction that hurts families and entire communities. Users suffer severe health consequences; children are often
neglected; and communities face dangerous crime and overburdened law enforcement.
Are we making strides in the fight against meth? Absolutely. From first responders to substance abuse professionals,
those who work on the frontlines to combat meth recognize the progress. There is still work to be done, however, from
eradicating meth production and distribution to helping those battling addiction. Consider Teresa. She is a mother, Girl
Scout volunteer, and website developer. Her life took a sharp turn when she started using meth to lose weight. Her story
went from bad to worse as she abandoned her family, including her 4-year-old daughter, for nearly a year in the search
for her next high. She eventually entered a treatment program and made a commitment to conquer her addiction. Today,
she is drug-free and a leader in anti-meth efforts in her community. There are thousands of people like Teresa out there,
showing individuals and communities what they need to know. Each year, nearly 150,000 people are admitted to
treatment for methamphetamine. And outcomes for meth users entering treatment are comparable to those for users of
other similar drugs. Find out about substance abuse treatment, and support meth treatment in your community.
