Narconon Arrowhead Launches New Meth Addiction Prevention Site

The Scourge of Methamphetamine

Methamphetamine addiction continues to negatively impact the state of Oklahoma and all Oklahomans. It is inexorably linked to crime, to the destruction of families, to child neglect and abuse, to the overburdening of the social services and justice system, and to the crushing cost of lost production. It's toll on on the physical and mental health of those who fall into the trap of meth use and abuse is immeasurable.

The Pontotoc County Sheriff says that meth destroys a person—their bone structure, their teeth, and their mental health. A meth user is putting poison into their body. And it really is poison. Methamphetamine ingredients can include battery acid, lantern fuel, antifreeze and drain cleaner.Its effect on the central nervous system of the user’s body is overwhelming, increasing alertness and decreasing appetite.

Methamphetamine and its direct link to crime is evidenced in burglaries, thefts, and assaults. The property crimes of thefts and burglaries are a source of stolen items which can be sold or traded for meth. Many if not most of jail inmates are incarcerated due to drug-related incidents. Many may not have committed crimes ever, were it not for their meth-driven desperation to get more of the drug.

New Meth Prevention Website

If Oklahoma is ever to overcome the meth-use epidemic, curtail the damage, and prevent unwary people from falling prey to the drug’s highly addictive nature, meth prevention is vital. Raising awareness of the risks and dangers of methamphetamine, the risks and dangers of “just trying it”, what it does to the body and mind, and what can be done to reclaim a life from the trap of meth abuse and addiction must be done as part of curtailing meth abuse and restoring ruined lives.

Narconon Arrowhead, located in Southeastern Oklahoma, is a long-term drug and alcohol prevention and education center dedicated to helping addicts reclaim their lives from addiction. It addresses addiction with a holistic, drug-free and educational approach.

Narconon Arrowhead just launched a new meth prevention website at that focuses on meth prevention education, information, resources, a meth prevention toolkit, blog, and a toll-free Methamphetamine Addiction Helpline at 855-755-4390.
