Recent reports have shown that Idaho is in the nations top percentage rating when it comes to meth treatment and Eastern Idaho suffers from the affects of meth as well. I went into the streets today and uncovered the truth about the meth problem in our community and what can be done to make it better. This is Addictions Rehabilitation Association incorporated.The people who live here are recovering from Alcohol or drugs.People like Nathan Summers, who started using meth when he was 14 and has been clean now for 10 months. He says he never thought his life would turn out this way... " I thought that I would be in prison by now but I got the chance to go through rehabilitation and I'm making the most of this situation."
-Nathan Summers Nathan says that meth is a problem in our communities especially the area that he grew up in."This area in Idaho Falls is known by addicts as midget market, even through police are trying to crack down on this area, users say that there is still a major meth problem."People like John Gaskill are doing everything they can to help the problem.His rehabilitation center is full with an extensive waiting list. He believes "once these people get over their addiction, their criminal behavior will also go away."
