One Meth incident in any neighborhood, in any town, or in any county is too much to risk. Once Meth takes root it begins preying not only on users, but on neighbors and community resources as well. Meth has the violent propensity to destroy lives, literally level homes, and pollute natural resources. If we all work together to reject Meth in our cities, towns, and lives we can save our kids and our communities.

  • Frequent visitors to a home, building, or area at all times of the day and night
  • Occupants of a home appear underemployed yet have money or pay bills with cash
  • Garbage contains numerous bottles, containers, stained bed sheets or coffee filters
  • Open windows vented with fans, even during the winter
  • Extensive security measures or efforts to ensure privacy
