The obvious answer is yes, but even with the most uncomfortable and dangerous symptoms, our Pompano drug rehab knows all too well that this usually doesn’t keep drug addicts from getting their fix.
Meth, or methamphetamine, is a drug that stimulates the central nervous system. Meth was originally developed for medical purposes but its highly addictive nature and strong potency make it dangerous for everyday use. Although it may still be prescribed by a doctor on occasion, meth is mostly sold on the street and abused illegally. Meth typically comes in the form of a white powder that can be smoked, snorted, or injected. Crystal meth is a specific type of meth that comes in glass-like fragments and has similar effects. In 2017 about 1.6 million people in the United States had used meth within the past year.1
Most people take meth for the immediate rush of euphoria it provides, but meth also comes with several short-term side effects like increased energy, rapid heartbeat, decreased appetite, and increased wakefulness. Along with these seemingly harmless side effects, there are several physical side effects of meth that can lead to an unsightly physical appearance like meth sores from meth mites.
