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 the following short-term side effects:

  • Fast or irregular heartbeat
  • Rapid breathing
  • High blood pressure
  • Higher than normal body temperature
  • Constant physical activity
  • Extended periods of wakefulness
  • Decreased appetite

The long-term side effects of using methamphetamines are particularly damaging and concerning. Consider the following consequences to your precious mental and physical health that will happen from extended use of methamphetamines:

  • Visual hallucinations
  • Physical sensations of things that aren’t there
  • Obvious confusion
  • Extreme anxiety
  • Crippling paranoia
  • Constant itching, leading to skin sores
  • Dental problems known as “meth mouth”
  • Extreme weight loss

Abusing methamphetamines is simply one of the most destructive things you can do to your body, mind, and spirit. However, there’s no need to continue living in the shadows of that desperation.
