Any family who has ever dealt with a loved one on meth can attest that it is one of the most heart-breaking addictions. The person will disappear for days or even months at a time with the parents left to wait for the phone call that the worst has happened.

Methamphetamines do serious physical damage resulting in tooth decay, decline in physical hygiene and open sores on the person’s body.
