Methamphetamine Treatment at Banyan Pompano

There are both physical and non-physical signs and symptoms of Methamphetamine abuse and addiction. Methamphetamine, also known as crystal meth, meth, chalk, crank, or speed; is a white crystal-like drug that is taken in a variety of ways. Inhaling, smoking, or injecting the substance are the most common ways the drug is taken, but can also be taken orally.

Meth causes the user to develop a strong desire of continued use because of the false sense of happiness, confidence, and energy that the drug brings. The high from methamphetamine lasts anywhere from six to eight hours, but in extreme cases the high can last for up to a full day. “Tweaking” is a common heard word that describes the heightened paranoia stage of meth abuse, this can cause people to have mental or physical breakdowns and hallucinations.

Addiction is a disease that has both psychological and physical effects:

Non-Physical Signs of Meth Abuse or Addiction include:

  • Sleeplessness
  • Memory loss
  • Lack of appetite
  • Aggression, confusion, disorientation
  • Hallucinations
  • Paranoia
  • Secretive behaviors
  • Criminal behaviors (often to fund or acquire more drugs)

Physical Signs of Addiction:

  • Skin picking
  • Skin crawling
  • Tooth decay
  • Hair loss
  • Liver, lung, and heart problems
  • Seizures and convulsions

When the high is over, the body crashes hard. When this happens the user will be depressed and unmotivated. The withdrawal effects of meth are so emotionally severe that typically the user reuses to avoid these results. When reuse happens enough, addiction is formed.
