Meth Addiction Treatment
Over one million people each year in the United States are impacted by methamphetamine (meth), an addictive substance which causes changes in brain chemistry which can lead to confusion, hallucinations, anxiety, violence, paranoia, and psychosis. Physical side effects of meth use include skin sores, malnutrition, heart failure, memory loss, and motor impairments. Successful and lasting recovery relies on meth addiction treatment which considers and addresses all aspects of the addiction. There are a number of ways to combat meth addiction including cognitive-behavioral therapy, individual therapy, group therapy, and contingency management.
Why do people turn to meth?
Meth addiction often starts when users seek the euphoric high provided by the drug. Users often take continuous doses of meth to prolong this high, increasing the risk of overdose and leading to dependence on the drug. Addiction is an all-consuming disease which can drive individuals to sacrifice relationships, careers, personal wellbeing, an anything else which is seen to stand between the user and the drug.
