Hello, My name is Mike Moore. I currently live in MO, but I used to live in Willcox AZ.I am now involved with a grassroots effort called the "Overcomers". We have overcame meth and are trying help others do the same. The man who started this group is named Steve Box , he wrote a book called "Meth=Sorcery". He is a Ex-user himself, the book tells about his life as a tweaker and how God helped him be free. He has currently pulisheover a 100,000 copies, they are sent to the jails. His email is steve@methequalssorcery.com, his website is wwww.methequalssorcery.com
Steve box misistries P.O. box 122 Pierce City MO, 65723
HIs phone number is 417 476 3106 fax # 417 476 5872
He could be of great help to the cause, he has done tremendous things here in the area. His group was the first to start here, now there 27 groups area wide. He travels the country preaching and telling his lifes story and telling people how they could be set free.
I am considering moving back to Willcox AZ (cochise county), If i do i will be looking to start a Meth Support Group there. We have found that very few people ever get free of the bondages of Meth, and even fewer without the help of God.

Meth is a big problem in Cochise County. I go to NA meetings,x-pothead. I hear alot of people talk about meth use and how it ruinrd their lives. But there are still so many suffering addicts out there do not know about groups such as yours or NA that could bring them the peace they are searching for in drugs. Your group would do good here.

Try to get him to go to Narcotics Anonymous meetings.There are meetings Sunday at 4 pm in Bisbee at St. Johns church and Monday in Sierra Vista at 116 El Camino Real at 6:30 pm, Wednesday at Oscar Yrun Community Center at 8:00pm. And saturday at St. Paul Church on Carmicheal and Theater at 7:30 pm in Sierra Vista. NA has helped me greatly. Offer to go with him, may help. No one at these meetings will belittle him, all are trying to stay clean and know the struggles that every addict faces. Prayers be with you.

Police are doing nothing..You can call them and give them an address of a meth lab and nothing happens.

White County Georgia has recently started a meth tast force. My daughter has lost her children and is currently in rehab, self-volunteer because of meth. We are trying to make a difference but it seems almost impossible. We will keep up the fight, pray you do the same. Pat

I have lost almost everything because of my meth addiction. I lost my house that I was buying for 10 years. I would not be considered your "typical" meth addict. I grew up in a upper middle class family. My father was a college professor. I have a bachelors degree from a fairly prominent, private midwestern collge. I was a "functioning" addict, until a guy I was going out with started cooking. Downhill from there. The only thing that has pulled me out is Jesus. It has been a struggle, but it can be done with the help of God.

I know the first post was a while ago. Are you still planning on comming to Cochise County? There is such a need here. I am an addict in recovery and also a college student. We are doing a study on the availability of meth resouces, and the ones available are a joke. NA is a good support, and also open AA to continue recovery. But, the inital "getting clean" really needs a little more help, they will put you on the waiting list.

Can't keep meth out of the hands of children, cause you can't keep drugs out of the hands of parents. You have to KILL the DRUGIE CULTURE in BISBEE first.
Otherwise you're only spinning your wheels.

Go here to see how! http://www.bammblog.blogspot.com/

I am trying to fight the battle for myself and my boyfriend. I am doing it easily with no problem. By boyfriend on the other hand is thinking that replacing ICE with pain pills is okay. What the hell am I supposed to do now. I feel like I am riding his ass too hard. But I don't know how to act like I'm not still furious the same when I know he's using pain killers. AAAAHHHHHHH!!!! our life is such a mess. WHAT DO I DO??????? ANYONE!!!!!!!!!

My Son is in jail right now on Meth charges.This is the 2nd time. He cannot beat this by himself but where is the rehab all the rich and famous get? They have offered him 15 years. I can name over half this town that is on Meth, and I understand it is the same in lots of states. It will not stop until someone realizes they need rehabed.
