Prevention groups provide education to the public, political leaders, and professionals  impacted by the methamphetamine problem.

Through community mobilization, a strong model of private/community/governmental cooperation was created to deal with drug-related crime in a comprehensive program.

Prevention groups always play a crucial role in providing training, technical assistance and motivation to other communities to support the development of county methamphetamine action teams or other, every local organizations.

Through its collaborations, a strong meth initiative leverages intelligence gathering efforts of the DEA, High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area offices, state police and local law enforcement through narcotics task forces.

Through these interactions, intelligence information is exchanged as necessary to support the anti-methamphetamine efforts.

Enforcement officials also play a key role in training and information distribution at the community level.









More than any other piece of a comprehensive anti-meth program, recovery is the area able to demonstrate progress at the individual level.

Recovery takes a major effort on the part of the individual involved, his/her support groups, drug courts and counselors and treatment specialists.

A recovery program also should involve small children who frequently become victims of meth due to neglect by a meth-abusing parent or exposure to the harsh chemicals at a meth cooking site.
