Fight Against Meth Labs Headed To Your Front Door

Posted June 16, 2005

— There are new eyes and ears in the effort to shut down meth labs across North Carolina.

The Chatham County Sheriff's Office began participating in a new statewide program that trains social workers to notice signs of meth abuse whenever they make house visits.

"The training consists of looking at the behavior of parents, any behavioral indications that there may be substance abuse in the home as well as looking at what items are in the home," said Millie Enos, of the Department of Social Services.

The plan is to extend the training to all counties and all professionals who work with families.
