Jael Strauss was once a pick and a final contestant for the reality show Americas Next Top Model, and she was a beauty that was in demand around the world. Today the reality is very different for the former model due to the meth addiction that she has continued to fight over the years. The before and after pictures of Jael are a very powerful statement showing the ravages of meth addiction and just how destructive this drug can be. Dr. Phil scheduled an intervention for Jael on his show Thursday, as the family of the 28 year old tries to get Strauss the help that could save her life. In 6 short years the photos show that Strauss has aged considerably, going from a young and fresh faced beauty to someone who looks like she is at least 40.
Unfortunately an intervention will not give Jael Strauss back the incredible beauty that she once had before an addiction to methamphetamine stole her looks away, but it may keep her from dying of an overdose in the near future. The intervention may be just the motivation that she needs to help her get back on track and finally kick the meth addiction once and for all. A Methamphetamine addiction can cause the user to lose everything, and Jael is a case study in this fact. Hopefully Dr. Phil and the family of the once promising young star can make her see just how meth is destroying her and those who love her. The ideal ending to this episode will show Jael accept treatment and be sincere about wanting help for her substance abuse before it is too late and she ends up dead of an overdose like so many other promising young adults today.
