KY: A Family's Meth Addiction

BOWLING GREEN, KY - NOVEMBER 27: Ricky sleeping at his parents house where he lives on November 27, 2005 in Bowling Green, Kentucky. On Sunday morning Ricky (28), passed out and could not be woken up until the next morning. His sisters told us he has been up for several days, which is a usual thing for Meth users. Here his sister Sandy applies a pressure glove on his hand which eases his pain fron the burns. Ricky has been a Meth user for several years and was severely burned in November of 2004 when the Meth Lab he was operating with a few of his friends blew up and resulted in more than 40% of his body burned. He is still struggling with the pain of the burns and does not go out of the house much. He says that he is not using the drug anymore and that his life changed after the accident, but his sisters say he is still using Meth. (Photo by Jonathan Torgovnik/Getty Images)
