Methamphetamine is one of the most addictive drugs on the market. It takes over a person's life so they care about nothing. Not their jobs, their family, even their kids.

Pam Colley knows that feeling. She became addicted to meth, lost her job, alienated her family and ended up in prison twice, before finally getting clean and changing her life. "Meth, it eats your body, it ages you before your time, it destroys families, everything."

Pam says it is possible to kick an addiction.

She has a degree, is mending relationships with her family, and has a job with Operation Hope Prison ministry. It's a non-profit group that helps convicts start a new life after prison.
