Rehabs.com, the people behind the ‘Faces of Meth’ anti-drug campaign have released a new video.
This marks their 10th year spreading the horrifying truth of what the drug does to people’s physical appearance over time.
Typically, they show before and after shots of individuals who’ve developed a habit of taking methamphetamine, but this time they’ve included photos of people hooked on cocaine, oxycodone, and heroin as well.
It’s called “More Than Meth: Faces of Drug Arrests” and features several users who’d been arrested for drugs and related charges.
Each case begins with a photo of them taken in better times, and morphs from portrait to portrait as their habits worsened, ending with one taken recently.
Each montage is accompanied by their age, arrest information, and often the amount of weight they lost over time.
Also included with some are the results of a survey taken by 200 people who, without knowing any facts, guessed how many years the people in the pictures had aged throughout the sequence.
On average, those estimates were off by about a decade, and never in the subject’s favor.
