Taking Action

Far beyond the harm it inflicts on users, meth affects whole communities: family members, children, law enforcement officers and first responders, homeowners, social services, and more.  

Here are ways you can help the community and take action.

Spread the Word

  • Once you've learned the facts about the dangers of meth, talk about them with your friends, neighbors, coworkers and most importantly your children.
  • Put up educational posters in stores in your area and where you work.
  • Write letters to your local newspaper and television stations to encourage them to cover meth-related news stories.
  • Email relevant news articles to your friends to raise awareness

Be Alert

  • Report suspicious activity to the police.
  • Look for signs of meth use, production and dealing within your neighborhood.
  • Share fact sheets with local schools to assist teachers and administrators in spotting the signs of meth use.

Take Action

  • Talk to your kids about the dangers of meth.
  • Speak out in schools, places of worship or any public community forum and educate others about the dangers of meth.
  • Volunteer at a local treatment center, hospital or burn center, or offer your tome to social workers helping at-risk youth and children whose parents suffer from addiction.
  • Advocate for an in-school meth education program at PTA meetings and teacher conferences.
  • Join a meth education, support or activist group.
  • Enlist the help of groups in your community: newspapers and TV stations, faith-based organizations, neighborhood watch programs, local businesses, colleges and universities, real estate and public housing agencies, secondary schools and parents' organizations.

Working together for a brighter future!
