Methamphetamine Addiction, & Treatment
Methamphetamine, also known as crystal meth, is a powerful stimulant that works directly on the brain’s reward center, creating an immediate and dramatic euphoric reaction that is highly addictive. Users can achieve a “rush” by snorting, smoking or injecting the drug.
The long-term effects of meth include severe depression, heart disease, severe dental problems (“meth mouth”), anxiety, insomnia, violent behavior, mood swings, and amphetamine psychosis – including paranoia, hallucinations and delusions.
Meth addiction affects millions and the number is rising. Users are often delusional about their depth of addiction because the drug makes them feel confident, alert, and full of energy, despite the affects meth use has on their personal health, relationships and family. Meth addiction is one of the most powerful and difficult addictions to treat, and having the support of medical staff and family is important.
