Behind the Scenes of Meth Addiction
Meth is such a powerful drug that it is almost instantly habit-forming.
It is also referred to as
glass; meth gets its effectiveness by forcing the brain to pump out dopamine.
But over time, meth begins to destroy the dopamine receptors in the brain—making
it nearly impossible for the user to feel pleasure by any other source.
While this constant flood of neurotransmitters induces a sense of instant
well-being for the user, it can have a handful of detrimental effects
down the road. Whether smoked, snorted, injected or ingested, meth tolerance
builds quickly, creating a dangerous cycle of binge and crash.
Side Effects of Meth on the Body
Abusing meth can have some serious effects on both the brain and body—and
it doesn’t stop there.
Detrimental consequences are plenty, and include:
- Alienation from family or friends
- Marital issues
- Losing custody of children
- Financial hardships
- Job loss or long-term unemployment
- Mental health problems
- Deteriorated appearance
- Weakened immunity
- Suicidal thoughts
When every waking moment is spent thinking about the next meth fix, it’s
time to seek professional help.
