Marie Peers: Meth hampers families, futures


Editor's note: Throughout the week, the Craig Daily Press will be publishing short pieces from people participating in Communities Overcoming Meth Abuse. The pieces are designed to raise awareness about "Not Even Once" Week, anti-meth educational outreach campaign that runs Oct. 26 through 29 in Craig.

I became involved with Communities Overcoming Methamphetamine Abuse because meth use devastates people and their families.

I work at Moffat County Social Services and see people losing their income, their families, as well as severely hampering their future because of meth use.

For instance, meth use is a significant factor in 50 percent of families whose children need foster care placement.

COMA recognizes that every person in Moffat County is tremendously valuable, and therefore the group has a vision that not one person in Moffat County ever uses meth - not even once, not ever.
