    The Meth Project

    Meth is so addictive, mentally and physically dangerous, and easy to find no matter where you live.

Young people are unaware of the dangers associated with methamphetamine use and until they truly understand the dangers involved, the number of meth addictions will continue to grow.

    Meth is one of the most inexpensive drugs there is on the streets today and that can be tempting to teenagers and young adults. The Meth Project zeroes in on the dangers and serious affects associated with meth use and is making a huge difference.

    A wonderful organization that was ranked the 3rd most effective contribution in the world is called The Meth Project. The center of this organization is in Palo Alto, California, the Meth Project is a national non-profit organization that's funded by a grant from the Siebel Foundation.

    The purpose of the Meth Project is to prevent and considerably reduce the number of people using meth for the first time. This prevention program uses public service messaging with the use of TV, radio, billboards, newspapers and the Internet. The Meth Project also uses public policy and community outreach programs to help prevent and reduce the use of meth.

    Barron's Magazine is one of the leading business and financial publications in the country. In 2009 they ranked the Meth Project number 5 of the "25 Best Givers" because this non-profit organization has made such a difference in reducing meth use and prevention.
