Meth Watch Program

Laurel County ASAP was able to bring the Meth Watch Program to Laurel County in September of 2007 through a $45,000 grant. The grant was awarded to Laurel Co. because our community was identified as a "hot spot" for methamphetamines through the Strategic Prevention Framework State Incentive Grant (SPF SIG). The SPF SIG process is administered by the Commonwealth Alliance for Substance Abuse Prevention housed within the Division of Substance Abuse and Mental Health.

Methwatch is a free and voluntary program for area retail establishments that sell products that can be used as Methamphetamine “ingredients”. Door decals, register decals, shelf tags, brochures, customer information sheets, and employee education posters that explain the Methwatch program are provided to the retailer at no charge. The program began in Kansas over ten years ago and has seen success all over the USA since. There are currently over 50 retailers in Laurel County that are enrolled in the Meth Watch Program
