The Stand in the Gap Coalition is looking to tackle the region's meth problem with the help of local politicians and officials.
Since the organization found its footing in 2011, it has created chapters in 10 counties across East Tennessee, Virginia and Kentucky.
"There's strength in numbers," said organizer Edwin Robertson.
It may need those numbers too. It was just last month that the Tennessee Meth Task Force projected Tennessee to overtake Missouri as the number one state in the country for meth busts.
