Meth: Big Time Drug In Small Town America
In part two of this series, we visit a treatment center that has demonstrated success in helping meth addicts. Former users testify as to how they were able to get off the drug and become productive citizens. A detective discusses what law enforcement is up against in trying to apprehend criminals and prevent further crimes.

Walter Williams, Executive Director of Synergy Treatment Center, believes that some meth addicts can recover if they have access to long-term treatment and an intensive aftercare plan. His center has a free, one-year residential program for adults. Residents work in exchange for room, board, and clinical treatment. Darrick and Jamie were once enslaved by meth before they were able to get help through Synergy. Darrick learned how to make meth from his father and started using at 15. He was relieved when he finally went to jail. Jamie used drugs for 18 years. He attributes his recovery to treatment and a strong faith in God.

Judge Robert Burch oversees a Drug Court where recovering addicts report on their status every week for six months. He acknowledges that drug courts are not for everybody, but believes that, when coupled with treatment, they are powerful tools in the recovery process.

Detective J.R. Scott provides a more dismal view of meth users as he has spent recent years busting clandestine labs in a rural area that has been infested by the drug. He talks about witnessing the paranoia, violence, and hallucinations among those offenders he has arrested.

David terrorized his family during his years of meth use. When told by his wife that she was going to leave, he decided to commit suicide. He shot himself in the face, and though it did not kill him, it disfigured him permanently. He never used meth after that incident and now travels the country sharing his story.
