Methamphetamine Addiction Treatment for Women
Methamphetamine recovery ( also known as Meth or Speed) is very difficult as it is an incredibly toxic, addictive, and dangerous illegal drug. Methamphetamine (see amphetamine addiction) causes the user to experience an intense, euphoric high characterized by high energy levels, a marked difference in sleep and appetite levels, and aggression and psychosis.
Methamphetamine is widely recognized as one of the most dangerous and addictive illegal substances in the world, and Meth use is a growing problem in America.
Over one million people in the United States will abuse methamphetamine in a given year. Methamphetamine overdoses are extremely common and severe among addicts and can cause panic, kidney failure, muscle breakdown, heart rhythm abnormalities, and even bleeding in the brain or circulatory system collapse, in extreme cases. Addiction to meth is incredibly harsh on the user’s body and overdose rates doubled between the years 2010 to 2014.
Methamphetamine is comprised of harsh chemical agents which rot user’s teeth, gums, soft tissues, their skin, and are incredibly dangerous for the lungs and cardiovascular system. When coming down off a high, methamphetamine abusers will pick at their skin causing lesions which can become infected. Meth causes users to stop sleeping and eating and users can develop psychosis and nutritional deficiencies.
Methamphetamine Recovery and It’s Challenges
Methamphetamine recovery and cessation can trigger psychotic episodes and unpleasant, painful physical and mental symptoms. Also, users who are trying to quit will experience intense cravings for the drug. In a detox facility, people going through Methamphetamine recovery are kept safe from outside influence which can cause them to relapse.
Chronic methamphetamine abuse can cause symptoms and side-effects such as psychosis with hallucinations, delusions, and other mental health issues. The drug is neurotoxic and damages the brain even after just one use.
