Familiarity with the meth experience, its effects on the brain and the path to recovery, are essential factors of competent care. These videos follow the powerful personal stories of a number of former users, tracing their path of destruction and ultimate recovery, interspersed with research-based information about how meth damages relationships, alters the brain and controls behavior. State-of-the-art computer graphics demonstrate the chemical process of meth addiction in a profound and comprehensible way. Created for maximum flexibility, the curriculum is designed to meet the needs of treatment centers, correctional facilities, community centers, social service agencies, and universities. These videos are also a valuable psychoeducational resource for users and their families.

In Depth
CE Test

Methamphetamine use is exploding around the world.

Meth and other amphetamines claim 25 million addicts worldwide.
Meth users worldwide outnumber both heroin and cocaine addicts, making meth the fastest growing illegal drug.

In reaction to this alarming trend, popular media has often delivered information about meth that can be overly dramatic, misleading, and at times completely false. In addition, prevention strategies have heavily relied heavily on “scare tactics,” which recent studies have proven do not work and can even backfire. Also contributing to the problem is a lack of educational materials that convey key research findings in an accessible, engaging way.


Meth Inside Out meets these needs by providing critical information about methamphetamine in a clear, compelling way to the people who need it most - the individuals, families, treatment professionals, and communities that are experiencing the meth problem firsthand. This makes Meth Inside Out ideal for use in treatment centers, correctional facilities, educational institutions, and social service agencies.


When a person enters treatment, it is important to help them and their families understand meth addiction and what to expect in recovery.

A well-informed patient understands the goals of recovery and can more effectively participate in his/her treatment.
Providing accurate information facilitates treatment efforts by allowing patients to understand the biological basis of their addiction and recovery.

When family members understand addiction and recovery, they can be a major part of the patient’s support system, rather than angry, confused bystanders.
