The Idaho Meth Project is composed of an amazing group of people. Over the last few years they have contributed tremendously to the communities and primarily to the youth of the state. As chairman of the Meridian Mayors Anti-Drug Coalition, I have seen first hand much of their work. We have also worked collaboratively with them on several project and they have been a great contributor to our coalition. The fight against drugs and for the welfare of our children is far from over and thank goodness we have great non-profits like the Idaho Meth Project out there.

The Idaho Meth Project is a - maybe the - key organization for stemming the tide of meth use/abuse and associated human and environmental tragedy in the state of Idaho. They need your support. Join me in helping educate our residents of the destructive nature of the meth curse, and help build people up. Support the Idaho Meth Project with your time, money, and/or talents. Meth is more dangerous than most people know.

The Idaho Meth Project continues the awesome and difficult work of bringing attention to the issue, as well as creating opportunities to help solve the problems. Leveraging communities to be their own advocates and take a leading role in reducing the impact of this drug and helping eliminate abuse is a challenge, and the Idaho Meth Project has provided the guidance necessary to meet this challenge.

As an almost two year member of the Idaho Meth Project Teen Advisory Council, I have been able to witness the good that this organization does for my community. The message itself is amazing, but then the speakers, presentations, and events make it completely inspiring. Every single story I hear, whether it be from the speakers or from recovering addicts who come to our events/booths, changes my life. I am forever changed by the selfless and interactive nature of this non-profit. The fight to end meth use is not yet over, and I am glad that the Idaho Meth Project works every single day to deter use among my community! They make Idaho a better place to live in!

As the lead advisor to the Meridian Mayor's Youth Advisory Council, I aim to partner the group with local organizations with a heart and soul for the true betterment of our community. The Idaho Meth Project could be the poster organization in this regard. They are inclusive, collaborative and out-of-the-box thinkers when it comes to bridging their messaging to all demographics. A joy to work with, the lead team of the IMP builds meaningful relationships and undertands the dynamics of reciprocal unions. Adrean, Cyn and Alix are top notch at what they do and have made great strides in the prevention of Meth addiction. Bottom line - They are deserving of any and all accolades pointed in their direction!

The Idaho Meth project has had one of the most successful campaigns I have seen on drug abuse awareness. It hits right at the heart of not only the dangers of meth but the consequences to those who partake in it. I am proud of all that the Idaho Meth Project team has accomplished.

This campaign is effective. How do I know? Because I know of many young adults who use alcohol or other drugs, while adamantly refusing to touch meth due to the effectiveness of the graphic images that bring to life the wreckage meth causes. The project has also been effective in equipping parents with the skills to have crucial conversations with their kids at a time when it can make a difference.

The phenomenal efforts of the Idaho Meth Project have made a tremendous impact on keeping teens in our communities free from drugs. Achieving lifelong success begins at young age and this project has helped thousands of teens understand the negative impact meth can have on their lives. I believe our community is a more educated and stronger place because of the determination of the Idaho Meth Project. Kudos to this amazing group!

As a member of the Teen Advisory Council with the Idaho Meth project, we do many activities and programs that we can engage the public in to make sure that they are aware on what's going on in their communities. Joining the Teen Advisory Council has been the best thing that's happened for me. Not only am I volunteering my time with the Idaho Meth project but I am also taking part in shaping my community for the greater good. This is a great program and I would love it so see many teenagers and adults join to make it greatly known.

The Idaho Meth Project plays a vital role in the Idaho Community in helping educate youth of the dangers of drug use. This nonprofit not only raises awareness and benefits the community at large, it saves lives by helping to prevent recreational first time use of a very addictive and lethal drug. They are a nonprofit that is very deserving of recognition.

My first knowledge of Meth and the dangers came from this organization. They came and talked to us and educated us of the danger that was going on in our state, area, communities, neighbors and our children. The ease of obtaining the drug and the dangers and the control it has ruining the lives of so many promising children and adults. I then later had a friend whose family was torn apart by this horrid drug. Later I became friends with a older gentleman who became addicted and truly just about lost his entire world. Everything that he has worked for his entire life. Hanging in the balance by whether or not he could kick the addiction. Only to say that is was by far the hardest thing he has ever done in his life. I then became a CE Instructor for Insurance Agents to maintain their license. One of the classes I teach is on Meth Lab Clean Up. The pictures that I saw in the room that first time will forever be with me and appreciate the education aspect that the Idaho Meth Project has given me as a parent. It is a amazing to me someone who was never exposed to the drug world how this has affected so many people that I personally know. Without the Meth Project I don't know how many years it would have been and who know how many times my children would have been exposed without the ever so important talk from their parents. Grateful for the work they do tirelessly on Idahoans behalf.

I love the Idaho Meth Project and everything that it stands for. What an amazing program. Going into the schools and watching a group of kids suddenly become silent listening to the real life stories is amazing. This program is one of the most valuable tools we have for our youth. Its graphic yet real. The sad part is listening to the kids talk about the struggles they face watching their friends and parents battle this addiction. Everyone should spend time using the Idaho Meth Projects website. It is a wealth of information. Without this organization and the work of some very passionate people, I truly believe Methamphetamine usage would be much higher in our schools.

As a former law enforcement officer and Chief of Police I would have loved to have had a organization like this at my disposal. Kids, and adults for the most part, tend to listen and soak up what someone says if that person has life experience in the topic. I believe having people that have used methane have beaten the demons is the best way to get through to the kids. The kids get to hear and feel the emotion that your speakers share in their talks about what meth did to them and how it affected their lives. I happen to have known one of your staff for 30 years and wish I could have been there to save her from this evil drug. I know that when she talks that the audience will feel the emotion of her story. This is a great project and one worth supporting so we can fight the use of meth and other drugs in our communities and schools. Great job folks!!!!!!

Idaho Meth Project is an Awesome Program....not only does it Arm children with scary yet very accurate information on methamphetamine use....It also allow past meth users a chance to give back to the community as a way of retribution for our involvement in this terrible epidemic and help us heal from all the damage it's done to our lives. very very useful to both those being informed and those that get the chance to do the informing!!! =D

I experienced the Idaho Meth Project as a middle and high school student in Payette, Idaho, where there is an undeniable meth problem.

What the Idaho Meth Project really excels at is putting meth use outside the realm of normal behavior. Unlike a lot of their contemporaries, I feel like they actually know how teenagers think and how teenagers consume media. That's why their commercials are so, so, so effective. The commercials are: smart, terrifying, haunting, and effective.

If the Idaho Meth Project's goal is to educate the public (and I think it is), they are doing a damn fine job.

The dedication of those invilved with IMP are an inspiration. Spreading the Not Even Once message to our area youth shows them the true effects of drug use; showing young people who may be affected by drugs among friends or family and letting them know they have support and are not alone. The Meth Project is a vital tool for our communities to help win the war against drugs in Idaho and around our nation. Kudos and a huge thank you to all involved in this mission.

The Idaho Meth Project is an amazing organization that has been life changing for me. As a Teen Advisory Council Member, I have helped organize many events around the community to spread the Not Even Once Message. Our presence around the state is making the community a healthier place and has changed many other lives as well. The Idaho Meth Project has shown me how to be selfless and how to prevent teen meth use.

Idaho Meth Project to me is a necessity in our world today, without it the younger generation could get headed in the wrong direction at the beginning of their early lives. If they have the chance to see what this drug does to there bodies they at least could have a chance to avoid it. Great job in getting this info out there.

Idaho Meth Project is a very necessary program. Meth can take the nicest person you know and turn them into a psychopath. I've known the director for years, and she always does a great job.

As a college student I have seen the effects of meth in the youth of the community of Idaho, and this project has brought awareness to people of ages. Many times have I discussed posters, commercials, and people close in others lives that have gone through the rehabilitation program. This project is one of great importance to the citizens of Idaho.
