Methamphetamine was brought into circulation by outlaw biker gangs in the 1970’s and is now smuggled from Mexico by the cartels and circulated widely throughout the United States. Methamphetamine can be made relatively easily from attainable chemicals and is one of the most addictive and destructive drugs widely available. The photographs in this essay will tell the story of a family torn apart by the drug. The mother and her boyfriend, names withheld, used drugs for many years and have had strong addictions to methamphetamine for the five years that they have been together. The son, name withheld, has been suffering from his mothers drug use since complications from birth and has grown up in this environment consequently inheriting the addiction which is now driving him to very poor health physically and mentally. The daughters, names withheld, live under legal custody of their father but spend most of their time with their mother and her boyfriend who use the drug several times daily and though they attempt to hide this from the girls their addiction has familiarized them with methamphetamine and its consequences. The girls have a strong relationship with their mother they enjoy the time they spend together which is often very playful. I have spent 8 months documenting the life of this family in an attempt to understand their existence and the choices that they have made in life. What I discovered is that this has been a learned behavior, through conversations with the mother. I became aware of her childhood experiences with drug addicted family members and the abuse this brought upon her, she seems unaware and unwilling to change the circumstances that she is now raising her youngest daughters in. Out of the mothers six children, three are currently struggling with drug addiction.
