Meth Addiction Treatment
Methamphetamine, known by most people as simply “Meth,”is one of the United States’ most addictive drugs, with many first-time users finding it habit-forming almost straight away.
Meth statistics make for pretty somber reading:
- Around 1.2 million people use methamphetamine
- The average age of meth users is 19.7 years old
- 1% of eighth, tenth, and twelfth graders have tried meth
- Compared to cocaine, meth releases three times as much dopamine, making it highly addictive
The feelings of confidence, alertness, and euphoria it induces have a powerful, all-consuming effect on the reward system of the brain.
This rush of dopamine is also far higher than what the brain naturally produces, meaning it’s highly likely to cause binging and abuse with cravings overshadowing a person’s life.
That’s why beating a meth addictionis so difficult, because the brain’s reward system completely takes over, which impairs the user’s normal decision-making.
But you don’t have to go through this alone.
