Summary
Find out the dates, history and traditions of National Meth Awareness Day

President George W. Bush signed the proclamation declaring the first National Methamphetamine Awareness Day on November 30th 2006.

The goals of the November 30th anti-meth abuse effort are threefold and include the following:

  • Educating current users about available programs to get help
  • Sending a prevention message to potential meth users
  • Educating the public about the effects of methamphetamine abuse

Methamphetamine is a potent and highly-addictive stimulant that can be smoked, snorted, injected, or taken orally. Meth is one of the most dangerous drugs in the United States, and addiction can occur quickly in its users. The effects of meth can take their toll on a person’s outward appearance and overall health.

The effects of methamphetamine include:

  • Higher risk of getting a disease when using needles
  • Severe weight loss
  • Insomnia
  • Dental problems (meth mouth)
  • Loss of memory
  • Anxiety
  • Paranoia
  • Hallucinations
  • Skin sores or acne

Long-term meth use can be life-threatening. A user’s health will continue to decline unless they seek out help. Meth Awareness Day can help spread the word about this ongoing problem and the importance of substance abuse treatment.
