Ruined Lives II: The Dangers of Methamphetamine
Methamphetamine, also known as "speed," "ice," "crystal," and "meth," is a highly addictive drug. It allows the user to stay awake for long periods, reduces appetite, and keeps the user "high" for a relatively long time.
It is also extremely dangerous, with potentially lethal short-term and long-term effects. This video includes the dramatic story of a young woman who tries "meth" for the first time - and the tragic, life-altering consequences of that act.
Interviews with individuals whose lives have been affected by methamphetamine abuse lend a peer group reality to the program.
