Narconon has always known that beautiful people don’t do drugs. The proof is that drug abusers don’t look good when they arrive for treatment. Even if they were once beautiful, that beauty has been lost. Through drug abuse, beauty is replaced by a hollow face, blackened eyes and a body that looks more like an Auschwitz survivor than an American citizen.
Law enforcement has been witnessing the same thing we have, and a clever individual has used mug shots of abusers to show just how ugly a drug addict can become. Hopes are that these Halloween like faces can send a message to teens. Here is an interesting article about “From Drugs to Mugs”
“The harrowing images are featured in the controversial film ‘From Drugs to Mugs’ – the follow up to the 2004 ‘Faces of Meth’ project which highlighted the effects of methamphetamine use.
The pictures, which show how addicts have lost teeth and scratched their skin to the bone, were released in the hope that they will make kids think twice about ever touching drugs.
New photographs show the first arrest of a drug user partnered up with a picture taken in some cases only three months later.
US cops at the Multnomah County Sheriff’s Office in the state of Oregon put together the collection, which features users of all hard drugs including cocaine, heroin and meth.
Deputy Bret King, 45, who was instrumental in putting together the original Faces of Meth project in 2004, said: “Faces of Meths went round the world, it captured people’s revulsion and imagination.
“As I was putting together the project and touring the country trying to highlight the effects of meth on people, I had a nagging feeling that I knew I wasn’t bringing the whole picture to people’s attention.
“Every single person I booked and interviewed who was not just a meth addict but a heroin user or a coke-head had started on some seemingly innocent drug like alcohol or cannabis.”
As Narconon has been reporting, the article points out the fact that many of these people start with abuse of things like marijuana and alcohol. Addiction can start from seemingly small amounts of lesser substances and grow into monstrous addiction.
Narconon drug rehab is the best answer for the abuser, no matter at what stage they are.
