Oregon Sheriff Behind 'Faces of Meth' Creates 'From Drugs to Mugs'

February 28, 2011  |

The Oregon sheriff's deputy who created the "Faces of Meth" awareness campaign has created a second program that also appeals to the vanity of teenagers by showing the way meth ravages the physical appearance of its users.

The drug-education program "From Drugs to Mugs," a 48-minute documentary, was created by Multnomah County (Ore.) Sheriff's deputies Bret King and Curtis Sanders.

"The message is clear," the deputies write on the program's website. "Substance abuse will change your life in ways you never imagined."

As with "Faces of Meth," the documentary uses booking photos to show faces that were once normal, yet become ravaged, toothless wrecks to illustrate the physical damage caused by abusing meth, cocaine, and heroin.

In the documentary, the deputies interview 22 inmates, law enforcement officers, a judge, an addiction recovery specialist and a deputy medical examiner.

Good article. Graphic images. I just emailed it to my kids with the suggestion they go over it then sit down WITH their kids and have them watch the video so that not if but when someone tells them "Oh c'mon chicken, just try it!" they will remember this and make the right decision.

This is the best before & after picture showing the extreme deterioration & damaged face done in 10years of abusing herself. Not only did she destroy her face but u can see by the look in her eyes she has lost her sanity as well. Pictures this shocking need no words...

This is the picture i would choose to show young people of just how tore up a person can get in 10years. I think it would appeal to the vanity of most young people just how far a person can fall in 10years. It's truly sad to look at what she has done to her self!
