Drugs and Alcohol Addiction is a universal problem. There are several ways to overcome it.
Methamphetamine is a Schedule II drug powerful enough to stimulate
central nervous system. Methamphetamine
is prescribed mainly for the treatment of narcolepsy, attention deficit
disorders, and obesity and is used in nasal decongestants and bronchial
inhalers also. It works on the brain and spinal cord by interacting
with normal neurotransmission. Neurotransmitters are powerful enough
to communicate with each other and send messages to influence thinking
and all other systems throughout the body. Since Methamphetamine can
be easily manufactured, and is highly addictive, the use of the drug
increased throughout the United States. This highly addictive drug
has a high potential for abuse and dependence. It is available in
pill form, capsules, powder and chunks, and can be injected, snorted,
smoked, or ingested orally.
Effects of Methamphetamine
Users taking Methamphetamine for the first time feel a short yet intense
"rush." Increased activity, decreased appetite, and a sense of well
being lasting 20 minutes to 12 hours are the short term side effects.
Users of Meth can develop a tolerance quickly, requiring larger amounts
to get high. Paranoia, hallucinations, repetitive behavior, and delusions
of parasites or insects crawling under the skin are the side effects
if taken for long. Chronic and high-dosage users often exhibit violent
and aggressive behavior, sometimes coupled with extreme paranoia.
Constant use of Crystal Meth
can also lead to heart failure, brain damage, and stroke. Mental disorders
such as delusions or hallucinations are reported as side effects.
Extreme, acute psychiatric and psychological symptoms that may even
lead to suicide or murder also have been reported.
Symptoms of Addiction
Addiction to Methamphetamine reaches low intensity stage, binge stage, and high intensity stage. Abusers in the binge and high-intensity stage smoke or inject meth to get the maximum effect. As a result of the "high" feeling achieved by the use of methamphetamine, self-confidence is artificially boosted. This feeling will induce abusers to experiment adventurous acts beyond their physical limitations. In certain cases, users avoid taking food and forgo sleep.
are widely used in long-term drug-free recovery process. Cognitive
behavioral therapy is helpful in changing a patient's thinking, expectations
and behavior. Holistic detoxification and treatment options are ideal
in treating Meth Addicts.
