How do I Know if I Need Meth Addiction Treatment?
Meth or methamphetamine is a powerful stimulant drug that is completely man-made. Meth rehab is essential for those suffering from the physical, mental and spiritual effects of meth use. GH Recovery Solutions can help you recover from meth addiction and live the sober life that you deserve.
Meth is a Schedule II substance, meaning meth is considered dangerous and has a high potential for abuse, even small amounts or occasional use of meth can lead to intense psychological and physical dependence. While methamphetamines are rarely used for medical purposes, they can be prescribed by a doctor and still spur a methamphetamine addiction. If you believe that you are suffering from meth addiction, GH Recovery Solutions is here to walk you out of the dark path of addiction and into a life of long-term recovery.
Quick Facts About Meth/Methamphetamines
- Meth is chemically similar to amphetamines (medications commonly prescribed to treat ADHD,) such as Adderall or Ritalin.
- Abuse of prescribed amphetamines can lead to needing meth addiction rehab.
- The ingredients used in the manufacturing of meth are highly flammable and corrosive. When those abusing meth attempt to make meth, it is a potentially fatal process.
- Methamphetamines can be swallowed, smoked, snorted, and injected by users.
- Meth use can permanently damage the brain. The brain can regenerate neurons, but its capability is limited. In some instances, the neurons cannot be replaced, and the damage meth has done is permanent.
- Meth is commonly used in a “binge and crash” pattern. Meth is taken in place of food and sleep for days at a time.
Physiology and Side Effects of Meth Abuse
Methamphetamines are processed in the central nervous system and the brain. When meth is taken in small medicinal doses, it can improve concentration and focus. Meth can also be used in cases of extreme obesity by decreasing appetite as well as be used to treat narcolepsy. When methamphetamine is abused, either prescribed or purchased from a dealer, it takes any medical attributes of meth and increases them to a dangerous point. Meth works in the brain by releasing much higher levels of dopamine that are not naturally occurring. Along with the rush of dopamine that meth produces, it also inhibits the brain from reabsorbing dopamine as it normally does. When the dopamine cannot be reabsorbed, it stays in the brain and disrupts how chemicals naturally react within the brain. Meth use also takes a toll on the heart as it increases blood pressure, respiratory functions, and can lead to overheating and strokes in the event of an overdose.
Meth highly affects the decision-making center of the brain and can lead to increased risky behaviors, including criminal activity to get more meth. As meth is more frequently used, a tolerance is built, and more is required to achieve the desired high that meth produces. Meth is one of the most addictive drugs, and addiction can occur after one, or a few uses. Do not let a meth addiction turn you, or a loved one, into someone you no longer recognize. GH Recovery Solutions can help you, or your loved one, recover from the damage that meth addiction has caused. We equip you with the tools necessary to control cravings, deal with guilt and shame and teach you how to face life, sober.
Being able to identify a meth addiction can be hard. It can easily escalate from casual use to an out of control addiction. Educating yourself on common side effects of meth use and addiction can make recognizing a problem easier.
Common side effects of meth use and abuse are:
- Loss of appetite
- Significant weight loss
- Mood swings
- Changes in sleep patterns
- Unpredictable behavior
- Repetitive obsessive behaviors (tweaking)
- Psychotic symptoms
Understanding Meth Abuse
With meth being a highly addictive drug that gives users an extremely intense euphoria, it can make quitting meth alone seem nearly impossible. Over time, frequent and repeated use of meth the brain stops producing the natural chemicals that give us pleasure. The intense depression that follows a binge, or regular use of meth, can create the vicious cycle of guilt, shame and repeated use of meth, even when you want to stop using meth.
GH Recovery Solutions is equipped to get you out of the cycle of meth addiction. Along with physical and behavioral symptoms of meth addiction, you may also find paraphernalia that is associated with meth use such as burnt aluminum foil, cut straws, rolled cash, broken light bulbs, and syringes. If any of these objects are found alongside the signs and symptoms, meth addiction treatment is imperative to getting help.
