Meth Abuse Treatment Program


What Is Methamphetamine?

The drug methamphetamine is a powerful stimulant and highly addictive. It can be consumed orally, snorted, smoked, or injected intravenously into the bloodstream.

Methamphetamine use is very dangerous and highly addictive because of the way it affects the brain. Like many psychoactive substances, meth floods the brain with dopamine, a feel-good neurotransmitter, causing the individual to feel a rush of euphoria. Long-term use can alter brain chemistry as well.

Side Effects of Meth Addiction

However, addiction to methamphetamine does not end with euphoria. There are many dangers associated with meth addiction, as well as serious side effects that can last a lifetime.

Methamphetamine addiction can have the following dangerous and potentially fatal consequences:

  • Anxiety
  • Delusions
  • Excessive sweating
  • Hallucinations
  • High body temperature
  • Hypertension or high blood pressure
  • Infections
  • Insomnia
  • Irregular heartbeat
  • Memory loss
  • Meth mouth
  • Paranoia
  • Psychosis
  • Teeth grinding
  • Tremors
  • Twitching
  • Weight loss

People who struggle with meth addiction can also be at risk to contract infections, such as sexually transmitted diseases (STDs), as a result of intravenous drug use and risky behavior.

Withdrawal from Meth Addiction

The addiction to meth is one of the most addictive illicit drugs that can be abused by people with substance use disorder. It is nearly impossible to overcome on your own. An individual addicted to meth should always attempt to detox from the substance under medical supervision at an inpatient drug and alcohol detox facility.

Meth withdrawal symptoms can be managed under the care of medical staff, including:

  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Fatigue
  • Hunger
  • Insomnia
  • Muscle aches
  • Paranoia
  • Shaking
  • Suicidal thoughts

After a person has quit using, some of these symptoms can linger for two or three weeks. To cope with lingering cravings from meth addiction, individuals recovering from methamphetamine addiction should seek treatment at a rehab center after completing an inpatient stay at a medically supervised drug and alcohol detox facility.
