The Idaho Meth Project conducts extensive statewide surveys and focus group research to more thoroughly understand attitudes and behaviors related to methamphetamine in Idaho. This research provides the foundation for Idaho Meth Project’s messaging and communication programs.


  • On behalf of the students and staff at Council Jr./Sr. High School I would like to extend my appreciation for the time you spent talking to our youth. Your openness and willingness to share your own life experience made an impact on many in the room that day. After hearing your story, the Idaho Meth Project's motto of "Not Even Once" has greater value because you were able to explain "why". Thank you so much for the work you are doing as part of the Idaho Meth Project.
  • I think this presentation needs to be heard by all high school students.
  • Thank you so much for your riveting and meaningful speech yesterday. Feedback from both students and faculty couldn't have been more positive. The event was a total success, and I think that now that the elephant has been pointed out in the room, kids at our school will feel more secure in seeking help if they need it. I am sure our school will want to host you or one of your fellow volunteers every year! I believed you saved some lives yesterday!
  • The Idaho Meth Project...well done. I will continue to donate to this project.
  • There was an article this morning in the Coeur d'Alene Press regarding your billboards across Kootenai County. While it seems that some feel that these signs are offensive I feel quite the opposite. I applaud you in your efforts and stand behind the Idaho Meth Project's decision not to cow in the face of "moral" activism. The reality of meth addiction is very ugly and the graphic images and messages displayed bring to the forefront the truth that many people wish to simply ignore. Thank you for service and efforts, I for one appreciate it.
  • Thanks for all the work you do! Having 4 children, your tv ads totally support what we tell our children all the time and help us out on it. Between you and us parents, together we can make it safer for all the kids in Idaho :) Again thank you very much!!
  • Presenters were great. The kids were definately impacted. Its not easy for the presenters to remember their stories and share them over and over again but I can't tell you how much we appreciate their willingness to share. I hope this helps them in some way as much as it has helped the students get a second chance and learn from another persons mistakes. Thank you for keeping in contact and continuing to come to our school. I look forward to seeing some more presenters next year!
  • IMP has helped so many families throughout the years!! I am SO blessed to be a part of this life changing organization!!!!
  • I was a meth addict for many years. I started when I was 15. I wear a "not even once bracelet" that I haven't taken off in more than a year. I think that the billboards benefit our youth. I am very happy that Idaho has a meth project. Thank you.
  • I heard they are thinking of cutting your funding. you can tell them to find me, I am an adult child of a meth addict and that's putting it nicely. If you save 1 family you have done your job and if they say stats can't back it up they should know how valuabl even 1 person saved is. Meth doesn't affect just that person, It rips apart whole families
  • tonight's program was AWESOME!! THANK U SO MUCH!! all the info that was given out hit right on the nose.. as i sit in the audience i was hearing the gasps & comments from people who i don't really think had either been fully aware to what degree this horrific life changing disease can affect upon someone or that they hadn't really realize that the person handing you your groceries, taking your order @ the restaurant or even working in your local doctors office.. i think tonight's eye opener is exactly what this community needed.. this epidemic is fast growing and the awareness HAS to be made before it consumes so many more lives.. so i THANK you very much for what you did for OUR community tonight
  • I have a cousin whose friend used Meth. I would like to say thanks for launching this workshop, because without it I too would be doing Meth. You guys came to my school and talked to us about using Meth. Thank you so much!!!!!!!!
  • I am so thankful that you are holding these intense yet very real commercials against Meth that are appealing to the youth...and everyone...Not Even Once. You couldn't say it any better. Please keep it up. I hope these anti-Meth commercials never stop running.
  • I just wanted to say your ads are making a difference!! There is a billboard ad right outside a rehab center that I went through and still have a service commitment at twice a week. It's the one with a jail cell on it. It's a great reminder for those that are in that rehab center where they, as well as myself, can be if we decide to pick up again!! I also have seen an ad on T.V. They are very in your face and surreal!! That's what people like me need for a reminder. Thanks!!!!!
  • My 17 yr old daughter showed me something this past weekend that has changed my life and hopefully will change the lives of others. She showed me your website! She admitted to me that she was thinking about experimenting with mind altering drugs, many of her friends have already done so. Then she discovered your site and it changed her mind and hopefully her life forever! I am a substance abuse counselor in the New York State and was bowled over with your work.
  • I live in Texas. I watched all of the ads you have on your site. They are disturbing and nauseating. I want my kids and every other child in my state to see them! It's time to stop being "politically correct" and let the kids know (see) the truth. There have been too many years wasted watching out for hurt feelings and not being straightforward and honest because some might be offended. Oh well! Drugs (Meth) are something the kids think can't hurt them. . . "just once". Facts are facts. They have to live in the real world like the rest of us. We can't clean it up and make it pretty for them and protect them from reality like so many try to do. What we can do, is what you are doing. Inform them. Give them the real facts, be there for them and guide them through. I think what you are doing is great. I'd like to see these ads in each and every state.
  • I just finished watching, in succession mind you, all of the Meth ads on the website. Wow! These were amazing! I will occasionally see one Meth billboard, or one Meth magazine ad and they are usually pretty tame, but your 30-second videos just blew me away! If Michigan has any plans similar to yours, I think that is a great foothold towards combating this threat. I wish you and your organizations the very best of luck in all your endeavors!
  • I think this site is amazing and that it could really help to show teens and even adults how bad Meth really is. I was a user, and without help I couldn't do it. I think this program will reach out as help for everyone who needs it, especially if they have no one. I was, well I should say, always will be, addicted to Meth. I was an active user for 5 years. I have been 2 1/2 years completely sober. Every time I hear or see an ad by you, no matter how hard I try, I can't help but cry. I NEED to help in any way I can. I have seen such a loss in human life and community. It can be stopped.
  • I just want to thank you guys. I think what you're doing is amazing! It's about time something is done about the Meth problem in this state. It's gotten to the point that I'm afraid to walk down my street by myself because of the Meth problem in my neighborhood. I've seen several of my friends turn to Meth and screw up thier entire life, they ended up losing their jobs and living on the streets. Stealing from family, friends, and complete strangers for drug money. Please let me know anything I can do to help with this awesome project.
  • I have a brother who is addicted to Meth, he told me once that he was not going to be like that guy. Those were his exact words and now HE IS THAT GUY. I want to be involved in this project. I don't want to just be another voice that says something needs to be done. I need to get out there and do something about it.
  • All I can say to you is thank you... thank you so much... I am 22, 3 years and 7 months sober. I did Meth from the time I was 14 till very shortly before my 19th b-day... it ate part of my soul... if you can stop that for someone else... just thank you.
  • I snorted and smoked Meth as a teenager and it affected me in no way I could have imagined. I did not reach my college dreams and I have mental and physical problems now that I am older due to my Meth use. I ended up on the streets and living in a Meth house. By the time I realized I was either going to die there or end up in jail, the damage was already done. Maybe I would have not used it at all had there been a "hardcore" ad campaign like this out there.
  • I just wanted to tell you that I think these ads are awesome!! I am a recovering Meth addict and I've been sober for 3 years. These ads tell it all and it is very important that our children not only hear the message, but to actually see what this drug can do to you. Thank you for publishing these ads.
  • Wow-very strong message. I have been clean from Meth for 7 years this April. It is a horrible and consuming drug. I think what you are doing is wonderful.
  • I was introduced to speed in 1998, at the time I was 21 years of age. I was in an experimental mode, and I figured trying this drug that I really knew nothing about, wouldn't cause any harm. From 1998 until the summer of 2002 I spiraled out of control. I hated myself for continuing to use especially after the murder of my beloved cousin years before, because of this wretched substance. In mid summer 2002, I had a moment of clarity. I left my dealer's house, drove 25 minutes to my house and slept for the first time in 8 days. I thought I was free, but I was wrong. As it usually goes in these situations, I relapsed. I rediscovered that old feeling of wanting to die again. I've been clean since 2004. Sometimes it's a struggle, but I'm determined to make my existence worthwhile. I commend whoever started this program. I'm one of the lucky ones. Not many of us make it out alive.
  • I tried it because of my weakness to a girl I was with when I was 16. The first hit from that pipe hooked me for the next 4 months straight. I went from a decent person to a person that stole from parents, lost 2 jobs, and started stealing cars and property. I went from 140 lbs to 120 in a week, literally. Stayed awake for that whole week and slowly went insane. I only did it for 4 months straight. The psychological and physical effects of that drug still stick with me today. If there is anything I can do to help (I'll plaster stickers all over this city) please let me know, otherwise keep up the fight against this poison that destroys families, lives and cities.
  • We feel you are doing a GREAT job getting the word out about how BAD meth really is. Our girls had friends come to visit from California. Their friends were amazed at Montana's commercials about METH ADDICTION. They said "California should have commercials like these." God Bless all of you and your staff and help. Keep up the great work!
  • I am a college student of twenty. In the past several days I have really begun to notice anti-Meth ads. What I do know is that people around me my age are taking notice. When I was watching television with friends and one of your commercials came on I commented that I'd really noticed your ads recently. Everyone in the room spoke up and made similar comments. I think that the graphic, jarring images are very effective at not only grabbing the attention of young adults but more importantly spawning anti-Meth conversations. I wish other anti-drug campaigns would take this very blunt but effective approach. I know that for me a celebrity telling me something along the lines of "drugs destroy dreams" has very little impact on me; it very quickly blends in with the thousands of other ads I see and is soon forgotten. Your images (and their anti-Meth messages), however, stay lodged in my mind for quite a while. Thank you.
  • I love the fact that you are using cold hard facts about this drug! You are not sugar coating anything-you tell it how it is and use young people. My kids are now scared to death of this drug and we have talked more about drugs in these last few weeks than we ever have. I only have you to thank for that!!!! Again, I can not say enough about how wonderful I think this campaign is. Thank you from one very grateful mother. Keep up the good work please.
  • I am a High School Health teacher in Roseville California. I just wanted to say thank you for all the effort you have put into this project. I watched all of the ads and I was quite disturbed by them. That's a good thing, I am not complaining at all. We don't have a big meth problem here but I am also not so naive to think that we don't have a problem. I want to do the best I can at educating kids to the best of my ability to arm them with the strength and knowledge to avoid meth related situations. I will be using your ads in my unit on drugs. Thank you for a very true to life, poignant display of the truth behind this and other drugs.
