Summary: Kristi is a 33-year-old woman brought up, according to her own account, by strict parents with strong middle-class values. She is currently battling a methamphetamine addiction, while trying to be a good mother to her small children at the same time. This ABC News program demonstrates that as meth becomes the latest drug of choice for many Americans, it isn't only the users who are falling victim to the powerful stimulant-it profoundly affects their sons and daughters as well. Focusing on the rehabilitation of "meth moms," the program examines the struggles they face in staying clean and reconciling with their broken families.
