New Survey Demonstrates Increased Awareness of the Dangers of Meth Use

94 percent of Arizona teens now see great risk in trying methamphetamine

PHOENIX, June 11 /PRNewswire/ -- A new statewide survey has found that teens' attitudes toward the dangers of methamphetamine use have shifted substantially since the ARIZONA METH PROJECT initiated the first wave of its meth prevention campaign in 2007. Compared to the 2007 benchmark survey -- conducted prior to the launch of the Project's "Not Even Once(R)" campaign -- the new results show that teens are now much more aware of the negative consequences associated with meth use and are significantly less inclined to see benefits in taking meth.

Teens are also now more likely to disagree with certain benefits of meth. Changes were seen as teens more readily reject the notion that the drug makes you happier (67 percent), gives you increased energy (69 percent), and helps you lose weight (49 percent).

"Increasing awareness of the huge risks is fundamental to stopping meth use, and the ARIZONA METH PROJECT has done an outstanding job in that capacity," said Arizona Attorney General Terry Goddard and co-chair of the ARIZONA METH PROJECT.
