31 Meth Mouth Methamphetamine reduces the amount of a person s saliva - important for neutralizing acids and clearing food from the teeth. Decreased saliva flow allows the build up of bacteria to ten times over normal levels. Without saliva, acids can eat away tooth enamel which in turn causes cavities. Many drink high-sugar containing beverages to alleviate dry mouth. Also Bruxism (tooth clenching and grinding) damage and constriction of the blood vessels to the gums and soft tissues.

49 At this time the most effective treatments for methamphetamine addiction are cognitive behavioral interventions... designed to help modify the patient's thinking, expectancies, and behaviors and to increase skills in coping with various life stressors. Methamphetamine recovery support groups also appear to be effective adjuncts to behavioral interventions that can lead to long-term drug-free recovery.

64 The Combat Meth Act: 3) Moves cold medicines containing pseudoephedrine behind the counter, sets a limit of how much one person can buy at 7.5 grams a month, and requires signatures and ID for purchases (the Attorney General will develop regulations to ensure uniformity). 4) Creates alternate procedures for stores without pharmacies and stores in rural areas. 5) Establishes a uniform federal standard that strengthens all existing state laws. 6) Creates a national meth treatment center to research more effective treatments for meth addiction. 7) Authorizes $43 million for enforcement, training, and research into treatment.

65 Current drug abuse risks: More choices Use begins at young ages Greater availability/accessibility More misinformation Fewer urban/suburban/rural differences Nonchalant attitudes re: pills
66 What professionals can do: Stay up-to-date with accurate information about new drugs/patterns of drug abuse Resist stereotypes about drug abusers (77% of illegal drug abusers are also someone s employee) Help others overcome judgmental attitudes about addicts Learn to recognize symptoms of abuse and where to get help
