Meth Addiction

Crystal methamphetamine, or simply meth, is a highly addictive stimulant. Manufactured in clandestine laboratories, it can be dangerously unpure. Toxic chemicals are used to make meth. Even if it’s relatively “pure”, meth is terrible for the mind and body. A look at one of the faces of meth websites will quickly convince you if you are a skeptic.

Meth addiction often leads to tragedy. It not only destroys your health rapidly, but it also destroys families and relationships. A meth addict will often stay away for days on end, which can elicit a psychotic state, hallucinations and other horrifying side effects.

Signs of Meth Addiction

Meth addiction is one of the most devastating substance use disorders. If you or someone you care about is addicted to meth, do not wait to get help. One of the most tragic things about meth addiction is that most meth addicts never make it into treatment. But you or your loved one do not have to become a statistic.

Here are a few signs you can look for. If you see more than one or two of these signs, it should be cause for concern:

Loss of interest in hobbies
Isolating from friends and family
Careless and impulsive spending
Criminal behavior, such as stealing
Obsessive focus (cleaning, organizing)
Forgetting important dates or events
Distracted behavior in social situations
Neglect of relationships
Risky and impulsive sexual behavior
Erratic sleep patterns
Hyperactivity and extreme energy
Extreme loss of appetite
Displaying a tic or repetitive behavior
Aggression or violent behavior

Recovery begins with action. Make the call.

Symptoms of Meth Addiction

Meth addiction can be harder to hide than some other substance use disorders. Part of the reason why is because of the extreme effects it has on physical and psychological health.

Here are some common physical signs you may notice in a meth addicted person:

Sudden or extreme weight loss
Extreme sweating
Irregular breathing
Nosebleeds
Slow-healing sores
Dilated pupils
Burns, especially on lips or fingers
Track marks on arms
Rotting or broken teeth (meth mouth)
Bad breath
Premature skin aging
Extremely short fingernails

Meth addiction also has profound psychological effects. The drug alone can cause many of them. The lifestyle that usually comes with meth use contributes to many of them making them worse.

The following are common psychological symptoms of meth addiction:

Paranoia
Anxiety and agitation
Nervousness and fidgeting
Mood swings
Depression
Hallucinations
Imagining bugs under skin
