Programs reduce recividism. Treating substance abusers who are incarcerated is only logical. I don't see offering treatment as coddling inmates. Besides every one knows there is meth inside prison. They can still get some of they want it. They can also go to AA or NA, unless they are in a max prison where they are locked down 23/7.

A lot of faith based program volunteers go to prisons. The road to recovery is still up to the individual. And I have heard the recovery rate is pretty low. One program on meth stated it was around 6%.

They should make giant color posters of these mugshots and put them up in every high school in the country.

Perhaps they should start earlier than high school - OMG, horrible. But then again, no doubt there are many people who might decide to simply 'try it once' never never thinking this can happen to them.

So question, once someone stops, can any degree of the damage done be rectified or lessened? That is a medical/scientific question = I have no clue.

I would hope so.

where I live a lot of senior citizens are doing this. But I agree put this up in the HS. make them watch a documentary the first and last day of the school year and before and after vacation breaks.

Once your face teeth gums are deformed and rotten you can't go back. maybe some surgeries and implants can help. In my area a lot of the people have lost bone mass in the mouth and can not even move the face right or wear the dentures.

That's better than what's supposed to normally be in it, believe me. There are over 400 different corrosive and flammable chemicals in meth so dangerous that cops aren't allowed to clean the places out without hazmat suits and breathing equipment. And let me point out that most people make this filth in their home where their children are exposed to the fumes all day, every day.

Until the place blows up and kills them all, of course.

Holy Moley- check out the picture attached to this lovely story. The woman on the right (the mother) is reported to be 46. No mention of meth in the article, but they didn't really need to mention it.

Yep, I've yet to see a good outcome. Most of the kids my son went to school with who were treated with amphetamines went on to be substance abusers, in and out rehab. A few have passed on.

Its the new window drug for future drug abuse.
