The problem of meth addiction goes beyond the person actually using the drug. A habitual meth user becomes irritable, paranoid and often violent. Usually, the first to pay the price is the addict's family, especially the kids.
In recent years, hundreds of children in Tennessee have seen meth's destruction up close.
Abuse and unimaginable neglect are common, and the physical health of children who live in homes where meth is made is especially at risk. They breathe in toxic fumes by just playing on the floor or in a yard where poisonous wastes are dumped. Their homes have been destroyed. Their parents have been arrested. Their lives are turned upside-down.
