This is dedicated to Travis Holappa who was kidnapped, tortured and murdered on July 25, 2004 in Northern Minnesota. This was all due to meth. I am Travis' mother and I wish to make this devastation turn into a better thing by educating and exposing the truth about meth, the dangers, and the deadly consequences it brings about to individuals and communities.

I want to do what I can to educate people about what is going on around the world with the meth problem. I want people to know about it BEFORE they even get the idea to want to try it. It is a dangerous drug and will ruin your life as well as all those who love you. I am on a mission on behalf of my only son, Travis.

Oregon Dept Of Human Services Guest Opinion: Contrary To Popular Belief, Meth Addicts Can Recover (Oregon)

By Karen Wheeler and Jay Wurscher

Salem, Oregon - "Study finds possible treatment for meth addicts." Besides offering hope for a new weapon against addiction, that Page One headline in an Oregon newspaper unconsciously fueled a common misconception: "People don't recover from meth." That view is so widespread that a survey of about 20 state alcohol and drug program directors found that this was the principal myth they are battling. As one of our colleagues likes to say, "Recovery is the most invisible part of addiction."
