New Drug of Choice - Meth

Save as PDF Print Article
Save Article As PDF Print Article

Why is there always some foul Drug unleashed to destroy the family unit? Perhaps it was not done by design; however there are some who would probably argue that point. When it comes to Drug abuse everyone, including the user, the parents, the children, the grandparents, cousins, aunts, uncles, everybody suffers, leaving families confused and fragmented. It’s a little known fact that illegal drugs are destroying the heart of America’s existence, the American family.

If it’s not alcohol, or marijuana, Heroin or cocaine, it’s something else. Recently a news report alleged “Meth” (Methamphetamine) as rural America’s Drug of choice. It’s cheap, easy to make and can annihilate a family unit faster than a speeding bullet. “Meth” is the superman of a Drug culture that has no mercy.

When do we start teaching our parents to “just say no”? How many children will have to lose mothers and fathers, sisters and brothers to a Drug that has the power to make you literally chuck all sense of reality?

Children are watching their parents make “Meth” in their kitchens, in the garage and in the backyard barn. What kind of generation are we raising when children now witness their parents making drugs, taking drugs and selling drugs? If you suspect a loved one of being involved in making or using “Meth:”

Address the issue head-on without anger and emotion.
 
Be firm about the effect “Meth” is having on their life and the family.

Insist they participate in a Drug treatment program.

Be supportive and explain that you know that walking away from the Drug is difficult.

Be honest with yourself and acknowledge your own Drug or alcohol problems. (Sometimes what we do sets a more important example than what we say)

Avoid:

Being accusatory

Being sarcastic and judgmental

Offering pity

Blaming yourself

There is a power in mass. If you suspect that your loved one is abusing any type of drug, contact a support group in your community; Address this issue in groups not by along.
