The Truth about Methamphetamine and Crystal Meth (Drugs & Consequences) (Library Binding)
Meth is affecting people of all ages, income levels, and backgrounds. A scourge of the heartland that spreads its noxious tentacles into every American village, town, suburb, and city, meth can and does kill. Meth-related crime costs the nation billions of dollars a year, and meth-related health care and rehabilitation costs are well above 500 million dollars annually. Even the environment is negatively impacted by the toxic waste created by the meth production process. This book exposes the dangers of both production and consumption of meth, highlights the grotesque side-effects of meth use, explains how addiction develops, and outlines the steps to break addiction. Includes sidebars such as "10 Great Questions to Ask a Drug Counselor" and "Myths and Facts About Meth" that allow for fast, clear-cut, and essential answers and solutions.
