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.

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.

I have been a volunteer with the Idaho Meth Project from 2007 to the present, which during this time I have had many opportunities to share frighting experiences from all the brave human beings who have given back to our community by sharing their experience, strength, and hope. I did not use their names, however I have had many positive responses from young people whom I've had the opportunity to share these stories with. Among them include my son, his friends, and so on.

If one person out of 100 listened to what these brave souls shared, then family members, neighbors, friends, and our community have been graciously blessed with the Idaho Meth Project's continuous commitment to educate our youth to the dangers of meth, and its rapid escalation. I have been so fortunate and enriched with a wealth of information regarding this heinous drug that I proudly continue to display the,"Not Even Once" Idaho Meth sticker on my window. Cynthia Eden

My work with the Idaho Meth Project has been completely life changing! As a 2nd year Teen Advisory Council member, the opportunities I have been given are experiences that I could never find anywhere else. I've been able to work with staff, other volunteers, and drug free personnel from all over the state, and I contribute it to the confidence and strength that I have as a leader now. The work done by IMP is life changing, not just for the people that get the opportunity to work with them, but also for the students, parents, and young adults that are educated and inspired by presentations and awareness events all over the state. The Idaho Meth Project has helped me shape where I want to go with my life and helped me form a strong personal message in my leadership philosophy, and is overall a wonderful organization!

The Idaho Meth Project does an amazing job at spreading the message of the danger of not only the general use of meth, but particularly first time use. They do an AMAZING job at engaging teens from throughout the state in activities to teach them the negative effects of meth use as well as spreading the concept and message of prevention in our community. I strongly believe Idaho teenagers are positively impacted from the strong campaign message that the Idaho Meth Project communicates. They are given the opportunity to find their voice and be a positive influence in the lives of their friends, classmates and families. Thank you IMP for all the great work and dedication to such an important cause!

This past year I was invited to participate in a project, headed by 'Cyn Reneau', to give the youth in the state of Idaho a means to occupy their time in a more positive way. This event included, not only a place for the younger generation to legally meet, but also included snacks, drinks, 'Live' entertainment, and 'free give away' items with the premise Logo of.... METH... NOT EVEN ONCE'.

As a touring & traveling musician, I've had the opportunity to see many different areas of the States, observing many different cultures, but the one thing that most have in common is the younger generation getting involved in the use of Meth due to the lack of more constructive activities to lead them in a manner of growing up to help the community in which they live and better their own lives.

In my belief, this project had kept many of the youth off the streets, (so to say) and a very positive notion that, for one.. we do care about them & their future, and secondly, that there are better and more constructive ways to spend their time with their peers.

In closing, I support all efforts to keep this project alive and going, And especially want to thank 'Cyn Reneau' for all her dedication and selfless efforts to pave a better road for younger generations to come!

Sincerely, Brian Ward

I'm the Program Chair for Criminal Justice at Broadview University. I'm also a reserve police officer for the Parma. I have worked with the Idaho Meth Project on several occasions and have to say it is one of the best programs that I have seen to help kids stay away from Meth. This project also helps recovering addicts by allowing them to give back and pass the message on. It is really an honor to work with such a great program and Cyn is truly the best at what she does.

This organization does important work to help Idahoans. Meth leads to tragic results for those who make the decision to use it and eventually to anyone around them. It destroys relationships, tears apart families, and it ruins the lives of both users and innocent bystanders. Education for prevention is the only realistic cure, and we are fortunate to have the Idaho Meth Project and their tireless staff and volunteers to give Idaho a fighting chance. As an Idahoan, I recognize your efforts and I thank you.

I have been to many of their functions and have seen firsthand the direct impact they have made in many peoples lives and in our community as a whole. I commend them on their amazing efforts and continuation of helping those with need and desire to get off of meth more importantly, prevent our youth from even trying it in the first place. Awareness is key and the IMP does exemplary work in bringing that awareness to light so that we as parents or loved ones we can assist in beating this horrible problem. Bravo IMP!!!

My daughter is a volunteer for the Meth Project. Engaging our children to help promote a cause I am proud of her and the engagement the program allows her to help promote a cause. More parents need to be aware of this program and get their kids aware and engaged into the Meth Project so that we all can have safer communities and understand the challenges our children face everyday. People have no idea about what drugs and issues our children are facing every day.

Before Idaho Meth Project started their campaign in Idaho, I had no idea of how rampant and damaging the drug is. Society is so callous to violence these days it takes a very strong message to get through. Idaho Meth Project has done a fabulous job making meth a drug to not try even once. The message is clear that you can't go back and the damage is permanent. It's not cool and not accepted. Thank you Cynthia and everyone at the Idaho Meth Project for your valiant efforts.
