Trois-Rivieres, Quebec, Canada – It was no more then three years ago when the Narconon Trois-Rivieres video production team released one of its first drug addiction stories. This video has later been followed by other very compelling stories and interviews all giving a real life insight into the destruction a drug addiction can have. The most recent was a recorded interview of a young woman who over came a heroin addiction; she described how the addiction took away her youth and her family. “When this original drug addiction story was released it became a big hit on You Tube,” said Nick Hayes, a representative of Narcocon Trois-Rivieres. “It was an in-depth interview with a former crystal meth addict, gang member, and criminal, who turned his life around while attending the Narconon drug rehab program. The video was an inspiration to everybody who was struggling with an addiction.”

The Narconon crystal meth video became a powerful message and joined the ranks of other effective drug prevention videos helping to deter people from getting started into an addiction. Crystal meth addiction has become a destructive problem throughout the United States, and unfortunately Canada has become one on the larger distributors of these types of synthetic drugs, according to the 2009 World Drug Report. Statistically, crystal meth can be a very difficult drug to recover from. For example, according to a ‘Drug use in Toronto, Canada’ survey, it was found that 37% of Toronto street youth were using crystal meth. This number is based on a specific population, but the Canadian Association of Mental Health does not report an increase within the general population. “Regardless of how it is looked at, crystal meth addiction is a serious problem, and needs to be treated right away,” said Hayes.
