Meth Addiction Treatment

Methamphetamines (otherwise known as “meth”) when inhaled, gives the user an extreme, overwhelming sense of euphoria, power, and seemingly boundless energy.

Ideas come in a flash, conversation quickens, and sexual arousal is heightened.

Just as with addiction to other uppers like cocaine or ritalin addiction, when wonderful feeling quickly fades and the user crashes. The crash comes from the user’s body paying the price for the supercharged state.

Fatigue and depression are the common elements of meth addiction. Users may sleep for extended periods of time unless they have become dependent on the drug, in which case they will awaken and begin a cycle of craving and drug seeking behavior – common to meth addiction and other addictions like ritalin addiction . Without the drug to stimulate these damaged areas of the brain, addicts will be unable to feel normal pleasures and subsequently fall into depression.

If you or someone you know is in the grips of a meth addiction, AToN Center’s San Diego drug rehab can help you get sober.
