Drug Addiction Treatment?!

What Is Meth?

Methamphetamine, also known as meth, is an addictive man-made stimulant drug that comes in the form of a powder and can be made into a pill or a shiny rock called crystal. The powder can be eaten or snorted, mixed with liquid, and injected. Crystal meth is dangerous and can damage your body psychologically and physically. Crystal meth is often smoked in a small glass pipe and causes a quick rush of euphoria.

Meth is one of the most addictive and damaging illegal drugs on the street. Some methods of administration cause a sudden rush of euphoria while ingesting it, but the high will not last long. The new methods of making meth have drastically altered the potency. As a result, meth today is much stronger than ten years ago. This spike in potency is the main reason that meth addiction has become so prevalent across the country.

What Is Added to Meth?

Sometimes dealers cut today’s meth with heroin and other potent drugs, increasing the risk of overdose. The combined high potency of drugs keeps a person coming back more and more often. A person who buys the drug might be unaware the meth is cut with other drugs. In its uncut form, meth is extremely dangerous and leads to many health complications, overdose, and death. When cut with other drugs, such as flakka, heroin, or fentanyl, the risks of death increase even more.

What Are the Health Risks of a Meth Addiction?

The health risks associated with meth addiction can be severe. For example, meth addiction can rapidly deteriorate a person’s behavior and appearance. It causes the person to burn a lot of energy while not eating nutritious food, leading to drastic weight loss and a sickly appearance.

Frequent meth users have sores on their skin that do not heal and often develop the “shakes” in the hands or body. Meth users often have rotten or missing teeth, a common condition known as “meth mouth”. Other health risks that result from meth addiction include:

  • Dangerously high body temperature
  • Severe itching
  • Emotional problems
  • Psychosis and hallucinations
  • Broken or rotting teeth (meth mouth)
  • HIV/AIDS or hepatitis

However, with the help of the meth addiction treatment program at ASIC Recovery, these adverse health risks can become a problem of the past. Our team provides the compassionate care that you may need to end a meth addiction.
