Meth Addiction Treatment
Methamphetamine has great potential for addiction and abuse. Meth impacts the production of the “feel good” neurotransmitter dopamine, and when abused can produce feelings of elation and happiness. Meth abuse can also deplete the brain’s supply of dopamine and interfere with its ability to produce more on its own. This leads to physical and psychological dependence, a very unpleasant “crash” when the effects of the drug wear off, and long-term withdrawal symptoms. Many people require intense medical and psychological care to safely and effectively stop using meth.

Why Methamphetamine Addiction Treatment Is Critical
Meth can wreak long-term, often irreparable havoc on the body, both physically and emotionally. People who abuse meth are at risk for numerous physical ailments like liver damage, tachycardia (abnormal heart rate), heart attacks, tooth loss and poor motor skills. They can also develop brain damage and symptoms that mimic mental health disorders like schizophrenia and psychosis, as well as long-term memory loss and cognitive issues. This is why it is essential that people addicted to meth get the treatment they need as early as possible to prevent further damage.
