Methamphetamine Treatment & Withdrawal

About Meth Treatment

Methamphetamine is a highly dangerous illegal drug. A combination of it’s cheap price and highly potent properties make it extremely addictive. Classified as a recreational drug, it is a powerful stimulant that triggers the body to stay awake for an extended period in short bursts, but it can also have more adverse effects in the long run. 

Its long-term effects include brain damage, violent behavior, paranoia, and hallucinations. The effects of meth happen in short bursts which is why users use meth repeatedly in succession and is one way in how they build a strong reliance on the substance. 

Even if an individual has built a reliance on the drug, it can still be remedied with meth treatment. The primary goal of Meth treatment is to remove the harmful substance within the system, restoring the body’s normal function and preventing the substance from further damaging the body.

Effects of Meth Abuse and Meth Withdrawal

Just like other kinds of substance abuse, meth abuse is far-reaching and negatively impacts both a person’s mental and physical health. Some physical effects manifest themselves as cold sores and muscle spasms. Due to meth giving users a burst of alertness and energy, side effects can also arise from a lack of sleep, rest, and nourishment. This includes explosive irritability, paranoia, and poor memory, concentration, and coordination.

Once a person tries to stop using Meth, their body reacts to the sudden disappearance of the drug in their system. Some physical meth withdrawal symptoms include headaches, dry mouth, fatigue, and a lack of appetite. Since the process of withdrawal is also very psychological, the meth withdrawal symptoms also affect a person emotionally. This means facing the possible challenges of depression, low energy and motivation, and an increased appetite for meth during the duration of their meth withdrawal.
