Communities Overcoming Meth Abuse: Thank you from COMA

To the editor:

Our organization would like to thank Bresnan Communications for the use of complimentary cable television time to broadcast methamphetamine drug abuse programs and for purchasing a new DVD player to run them on.

This information is shown on Channel 17 at varying times during weeknights. These presentations will help us understand the devastation meth causes to the user, their family members and all segments of our community. Remember, it is your tax dollars that are used to fund law enforcement and human services organizations that fight crime and drug related offenses.

Estimates have shown that 60 to 80 percent of all crime can be related to meth use or acquisition.

Child neglect and abuse are common within families whose parents use meth. The environmental damage caused by improper storage and disposal of chemicals used to produce meth is severe; the cost of soil and structure remediation at contaminated meth production sites is staggering.

Our gratitude also goes out to L.D. Schoffner Video Productions for converting the documentaries to a cable TV modality and to the Mesa County Meth Task Force for the use of their education materials.
