Tweakers: How Crystal Meth is Ravaging Gay America Image

Written by Frank Sanello. Alyson Publications Inc. 2005.

Frank Sanello uses eight case studies to depict his uncompromising exploration of crystal addiction, and vividly illustrates the inevitable downward spiral associated with the habitual use of methamphetamine. Having previously written Opium Wars, Sanello is well qualified to examine how crystal abuse is reaching epidemic levels among gay men. Tweakers get a quick, cheap high, an exhilarating loss of inhibition and increased stamina at the price of permanent behavioural changes, brain damage and death due to the horrifying side effects brought about by the reagenting ingredients used in the processing of crystal. Sanello’s book draws upon conversations with addicts as well as experts in the gay community and at drug treatment centres. While painting a terrifying portrait of a deadly drug and a population at risk, Sanello also shares invaluable information and resources designed to offer hope and help to those who suffer.
