Methamphetamine Treatment at Banyan Pompano
Methamphetamines are a dangerous subset of drugs which includes meth, chalk, speed, and crystal meth. Users inhale, smoke, or inject the substance. Meth acts quickly in the brain, increasing dopamine levels. This results in a short high that can be described as a rush, or even a flash. But, the high is very brief, meaning that users often binge on doses to maintain a high. Long term effects of methamphetamine addiction include dental decay, anxiety, violent behavior, and hallucinations. If you or someone you know is struggling, it’s time to find sobriety with addiction treatment in Pompano.
The Dangers of Meth
Methamphetamines bring an incredibly short, yet often intense, false sense of happiness to users. As the chemicals in a person’s brain are warped by meth use, they need more and more of this drug just to feel any fleeting moment of happiness. The more meth a person uses, the more pronounced their addiction symptoms will be. Many people may wind up experiencing a heightened state of paranoia, where they are “tweaking” and hallucinating. Meth also destroys a person’s physical health, leading to extreme weight loss and more.
With such pronounced highs, meth addiction brings debilitating lows. Users will be depressed and unmotivated in a state of anhedonia Meth addiction has emotionally draining withdrawal symptoms, forcing many people into the harmful cycles of addiction. If you’re using more and more just to feel normal, it’s time to break free.
