Raising Public Awareness

Stimulants are the second most widely used illegal substances in the US, and yet, little public awareness exists about the extent and societal cost of this epidemic.

The True Extent of This Epidemic

  • Stimulants, and specifically methamphetamines, are the leading drug-related death west of the Mississippi [1].
  • Deaths over the past 10 years have increased dramatically [2].

[1] Center for Behavioral Health Statistics Quality. 2015 National survey on drug use and health: Detailed tables In:2016.

[2] WSJ Meth is the top Drug overdose in the West


America has two drug epidemics, but focuses on one.
