New Government Website Helps Fight Meth Problems

September 02, 2005  | 

In the fight against meth, individuals and communities need all the resources they can get. A new government Website seeks to put essential resources in the hands of law enforcement officers and other community members concerned for the safety of their neighborhoods and people unfairly affected by the drug trade.

The production and use of methamphetamine results in health risks and environmental hazards, threatens the safety of communities, and affects innocent children as they are neglected or abused by their meth-using or producing caregivers.

Putting the meth problem in a national perspective, ONDCP Director John Walters says, "The methamphetamine challenge has touched communities across this nation differently, but its devastating consequences are borne by all Americans."

In response to this challenge, the Bush Administration has launched www.MethResources.gov, a comprehensive site that brings together information and resources available to communities on the topic of methamphetamine. The site will serve as a tool for policymakers, law enforcement officials, treatment and prevention professionals, business owners and retailers, and anti-drug leaders.
