National Survey Shows Meth Users Declined Significantly
Date:9/12/2011

LUTHERVILLE, Md., Sept. 12, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- The National Association of Drug Diversion Investigators (NADDI) – a nonprofit organization that facilitates cooperation between law enforcement, healthcare professionals, state regulatory agencies and pharmaceutical manufacturers in the prevention and investigation of drug diversion – today released the following statement in response to a survey by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) showing the number of past-month methamphetamine users declined from 731,000 in 2006 to 353,000 in 2010:

"News that the number of methamphetamine users across the nation has declined so substantially demonstrates that the real-time, stop-sale system enacted in 19 states is working.  With only two states having put in place prescription-only mandates, it is clear that electronic technology is stopping criminals from obtaining safe and effective medicines containing pseudoephedrine, which in turn is dramatically dropping the number of meth users," said Charles Cichon, executive director of the National Association of Drug Diversion Investigators (NADDI).  "As state leaders consider policies that impact the access law-abiding citizens have to popular and reliable medications, they should consider this newly-released data as it validates that a common sense yet effective approach can be implemented to combat meth production and abuse."
