On the streets, methamphetamine, or meth, goes by a number of different names, such as “crystal,” “speed,” and “crank.” It is an illegal drug that is known for its extremely addictive nature and the destructive impact that it has on the user’s body.
In addition to the noticeable physical toll of meth, its effects are also damaging to the brain.
Signs of Meth Addiction
It may be easier to see the signs of meth addiction than other drugs, such as alcohol because it has a dramatic impact on a user’s physical and mental conditions.
Some of the following are signs of meth addiction:
- Extreme weight loss
- Severe dental problems (sometimes called “meth mouth”)
- Intense itching
- Abnormal sleep patterns
- Confusion or clouded mental states
- Violent behavior
There are many other tell-tale signs of meth addiction, both short and long-term. Getting help for addiction to this dangerous drug is crucial.
Meth Addiction Treatment in Orange County
The first step in meth addiction treatment is admittance to a professional detox facility, such as True Recovery’s Drug & Alcohol Detox, in which medical professionals can manage some of the symptoms of methamphetamine withdrawal. This, in turn, greatly increases the likelihood of successfully completing the initial detox phase.
Following the initial stay at a certified detox facility with an extended stay at an inpatient treatment facility greatly increases the chances of achieving long-term sobriety.
During an inpatient treatment stay, the user can also learn a new way of life and begin integration into a recovery program (such as Narcotics Anonymous or Crystal Anonymous) which provide the greatest odds for those addicted to methamphetamine to achieve long-term sobriety.
When you arrive at True Recovery’s Orange County meth addiction treatment center, you are not only given the tools and support needed to achieve long term sobriety, but we also provide meth addiction counseling and life skills counseling.
