Meth Addiction Treatment
Meth is a highly addictive stimulant that causes a rush of Dopamine to flood into the user’s brain. Dopamine is a neural chemical associated with feelings of euphoria. The brain usually dispenses Dopamine as a reward to encourage memory retention, motivation, and learning. The amount of Dopamine produced by methamphetamine use is much higher than the natural amount of Dopamine that is typically produced by the brain. The resulting chemical imbalance feeds a person’s addiction to meth by making them crave higher dosages of the drug to maintain the same pleasurable feelings.
The quick progression of tolerance to meth along with its cheap price increase the likelihood of a person becoming rapidly addicted to the drug. When a person stops using meth, they will not be satisfied by the relatively low amount of Dopamine they receive naturally. This can lead to extended periods of “Anhedonia” or an inability to feel pleasure. Other common withdrawal symptoms of meth are anxiety, depression, fatigue and, insomnia. When faced with these withdrawal symptoms, a meth user will often begin using the drug again to regain a feeling of normalcy. This cycle makes meth addiction difficult to beat without professional help.
Once a person who is addicted to methamphetamines decides to quit, it is critical that they undergo a medically supervised detox. The effects of meth on the heart and central nervous system can lead to seizures, heart attacks, and strokes. In order to safely avoid any severe complications, a person should be under the care of trained professionals while recovering from meth addiction.
