  • What is methamphetamine?

    Methamphetamine is a highly addictive stimulant drug that appears as a white, odorless crystalline powder. The effects of meth are similar to amphetamine, yet meth is a more powerful stimulant. In addition, the effects last longer and are more harmful to the user. The drug is used in a variety of ways; for example, it can be smoked, snorted, injected, or swallowed.

  • Why is methamphetamine so addictive?

    It is a powerful stimulant that creates increased physical activity, wakefulness, decreased appetite, and alertness. It is the stimulating effects of the drug that make it so addictive. It causes high levels of the neurotransmitter dopamine to be released in the brain. These large amounts of dopamine also contribute to it being so addictive.

  • Is long-term methamphetamine use dangerous?

    Yes, compared to other drugs, methamphetamine produces negative long-term health effects that are irreversible. Someone who becomes addicted to the drug compulsively seeks the drug despite negative consequences. The drug creates tolerance and withdrawal, severe psychosis, affects emotion and memory, and physically affects a person.

  • How is methamphetamine addiction treated?

    Treating meth addiction begins with detox to manage withdrawal symptoms and cravings. The detox process can be difficult because of the physical cravings. In addition, there are psychological withdrawal symptoms. After detox, the next phase of treatment should involve long-term residential drug rehab with aftercare support. Anyone addicted to methamphetamine benefits from long-term rehabilitation.
