Gabriella Mead

Gabriella Mead sits on the back porch of the Genesis House women and families shelter, where she stayed for about a month while waiting for a bed at a Council on Addiction Recovery Services Inc. supportive living facility. She’s one of the increasing number of CAReS patients struggling with a methamphetamine addiction.

Gabriella Mead remembers methamphetamine coming into her life and her hometown of Yorkshire seemingly out of nowhere in late 2017.

“You never heard of it,” she said. “Then with a snap of a finger it was everywhere.”
