Montana Meth Project Statement Regarding Billings Gazette Story
Date:7/6/2009

  • Instead of comparing the data from the two-year period prior to the launch of the Project (2003 to 2005), the article selectively cites 2001 to 2003 to compare to results from 2005 to 2007, completely omitting the prior period data (2003 to 2005).
  • Comparing the four-year period prior to the launch of the Montana Meth Project to the results post-launch, again, show the change is significantly different:
    • 34% decrease from 2001 to 2005, the four-year period prior to the launch of the Montana Meth Project
    • 63% decrease from 2005 to 2009, the four-year period after the launch of the Project
  • The story selectively omits data provided to the reporter from the Montana Attorney General, Board of Crime Control Crime Lab, and Montana Department of Public Health and Human Services. All which show significant, positive changes in the state since 2005, including:
    • 42% decline in Meth-related treatment admissions among patients 20 years old and younger, and a 24% decline for patients of all ages from 2005 to 2007 as reported by the Montana Attorney General based upon Alcohol and Drug Information System Client Admission data.(3) In this period (2005-2007) Meth-related treatment admissions decreased, while overall treatment admissions remained virtually unchanged.
    • 53% decrease in Meth-related crime from 2005 to 2006 and a 62% decrease in Meth-related crime from 2005 to 2007 as reported by the Montana Attorney General based upon Montana Board of Crime Control data. Prior, the rate of Meth-related crime was increasing (21% from 2004 to 2005).(4)
    • 11% decrease in Meth-related foster care placements from 2005 to 2007 as reported by the Montana Attorney General based upon data from the Montana Department of Public Health and
