Meth Awareness Week Kicks Off November 30

NEW YORK- November 18, 2015

"National Meth Awareness Week will be observed Monday, November 30 through Friday, December 4, in an effort to combat the abuse and use of methamphetamine. Meth Awareness Week is coordinated by The Meth Project, a large-scale, teen-targeted prevention program of the Partnership for Drug-Free Kids, which aims to significantly reduce meth use through public service messaging, public policy and community outreach. The week will kick off with a digital media campaign and social content that ask teens to get involved and take action.

This year’s theme, 'Raise the Volume,' encourages participants to get involved within their communities to help amplify the message of choosing life over meth. With participation from state partners including Colorado, Georgia, Hawaii, Idaho, Montana, and Wyoming, the awareness campaign will launch with various local events and enhanced digital media support."
