U.S. Sen. Dick Durbin (D-IL) has also been instrumental in supporting federal funding efforts for the Project.

"Methamphetamine abuse is a critical law enforcement problem and a grave community problem in rural Illinois," said Senator Durbin. "Today's launch marks the beginning of a vigorous and ardent effort to crush Meth's effect."

The Illinois Meth Project also today announced the results of the 2007 Illinois Meth Use & Attitudes Survey: Springfield, Decatur, Champaign Regions. This first-ever Illinois survey examines the attitudes and behaviors that local teens have toward methamphetamine. The survey will serve as a benchmark to measure progress as the Illinois Meth Project executes its prevention campaign, educating the state's youth about the dangers of methamphetamine use.

About the Illinois Meth Project

The Illinois Meth Project is a non-profit organization that implements a range of advertising and community action programs to reduce methamphetamine use in the state. Launched in February 2008, the Illinois Meth Project leverages a proven model that combines extensive research with a hard-hitting, integrated media campaign. The Illinois Meth Project is established by the Meth Project, a national non-profit organization headquartered in Palo Alto, California, aimed at significantly reducing first-time Meth use through public service messaging, public policy, and community outreach.
