Oxycodone Addiction and Abuse

Methamphetamine Addiction

Treating Addiction to Methamphetamines

Methamphetamine is a powerful stimulant that attacks your central nervous system with reckless abandon. It also becomes extremely addictive, sometimes after the very first use. “Binging and crashing” is often associated with smoking or snorting methamphetamines.
“Meth” is such a fast-acting stimulant, that the euphoric effects of the drug can subside well before most of the actual substance dissolves from your bloodstream. This may cause users to go an extreme binge, known as a “run,” which is when the drug is binged on continuously for several days while neglecting other vital functions like sleeping and eating.
Most researchers agree that using methamphetamines creates the most powerful psychological dependency of any drug in the world.  Using even a small dosage of methamphetamines will usually result in short-term side effects but with multiple uses or extended use any of the following side effects can happen:
  • Fast or irregular heartbeat
  • Rapid breathing
  • High blood pressure
  • Higher than normal body temperature
  • Constant physical activity
  • Extended periods of wakefulness
  • Decreased appetite
  • Visual hallucinations
  • Physical sensations of things that aren’t there
  • Obvious confusion
  • Extreme anxiety
  • Crippling paranoia
  • Delusional thoughts
  • Constant itching, leading to skin sores and skin infections
  • Dental problems known as “meth mouth”
  • Unhealthy extreme weight loss
  • Thyroid abnormalities
