Methamphetamine addiction is a growing problem among Americans and an incredibly deadly one. White and blue collar, unemployed workers in their 20’s and 30’s are the largest demographic that has begun to use Meth more frequently. A stimulant of the central nervous system, Meth produces a euphoric high after it is smoked or injected, leaving the user energetic and without much of an appetite. Methamphetamine addiction is responsible for millions of deaths and even more families being torn apart by its use. When someone is addicted to Meth, they will not be able to make decisions as they would if they were sober, leaving everyone around them at risk.
How do I know if I’m addicted to Methamphetamines?
If you take the drug even once you run the risk of becoming physically or psychologically dependent on Meth and you may be unable to quit using the drug on your own. If you find that you are constantly high, thinking about being high, or if you are unable to carry on the same sober relationships that you had before you began taking the drug, you need to contact professional help immediately.

What Treatment Can I Expect?
When you enter an inpatient treatment program you will have to go through an initial detoxification process. When Methamphetamines are no longer introduced into the body, the body will react violently and intensely crave the high that the drug gives.
