(PIX11) — The organization behind the shocking “Faces of Meth” campaign has released a new video showing the devastating effects drugs have on a user’s physical appearance.

The “More Than Meth: Faces of Drug Arrests” video shows the unbelievable transformation of people busted for drug offenses and various other crimes.

“The deterioration seen in consecutive photos is not necessarily the direct result of drugs or addiction, though in aggregate, it becomes clear that involvement in illegal drugs often brings with it a rapid, and tragic physical decline,” the website states.

While the “Faces of Meth” gallery that launched 10 years ago only featured people arrested for amphetamine, the new gallery has offenders picked up with heroin, cocaine and prescription pills.

“There is little arguing that the effects of street and even prescription drug abuse can dramatically alter a person’s physical and mental state, sometimes irreversibly,” the website states.
