Father and daughter tell of the consequences of her drug addiction to ‘meth’ and the effects it had on this ‘normal, middle class’ family. This is definitely one to show how this problem can effect anyone and the speed with which it can ruin lives. Luckily this story does not end in tragedy but shows how close a family came to losing everything.
