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.

The Many Faces of Meth: A four-part series (Indiana)

Part IV - The face of rehabilitation

By Tim Young-Warrick Publishing Online

Editor's Note: This is the last in a four-part series of stories exploring the effects of methamphetamine on the people and culture of Warrick County.

A group of people sit quietly in Superior Court 1 waiting for the arrival of Judge Keith Meier. This is the last stop for the 15 to 20 convicted drug or alcohol offenders before heading to the Department of Corrections to serve sentences for their felonies.

As of right now, they have two choices, go to DOC or rehabilitate through the Warrick County Drunk Driving/Drug Court. Some of them have been in the program for several weeks and some of them have just started.

What is the drug court?

Meier described the drug court as a substance abuse program that is administered by the court.
