The state of Montana is conducting a very large scale program aimed to prevent first time meth use through different types of advertising, public policies and community outreach. Workplace drug testing has shown a 73 percent decrease in Methamphetamine use from year 1999 to year 2006, and Meth related crimes have dropped 53 percent during year 2006. Crystal Meth related incarcerations, however remains high at 50 percent of all incarcerations across the state. One of the state's largest health care facilities has stated that all of only 6 people were admitted in 2006 to seek help for the abuse of the drug.
In 2013 the Montana Meth Project was established as an extension of the nation-wide "Meth Project." In fact, Crystal Meth in Montana is such a large scale problem, it is one of the high expenses the state has. Montana has also invested money in meth treatment facilities, to try to combat some of the high amount of usage and dealing, as well as prevention campaigns to stop the spreading. Unfortunately many of these treatment centers fail to provide solid results and often encourage people to follow up treatment with recovery meetings. Although treatment may not be as effective, there are alternative non-treatment programs available. It's important for people at any age to realize they can change a Crystal Meth habit with the right dedication.
