Methamphetamine, more commonly called "meth" or "crystal meth," is an extremely potent synthetic drug. It alters the brain chemistry so the user feels intense pleasure upon use, but the pleasure is all too short-lived, and tragedy can follow as addiction takes hold. Meth is highly addictive and chronic use can have long-lasting, life-altering implications. When a person uses meth, it creates a rush of pleasure to the body and mind that gets the user hooked instantly. There is no such thing as “casual” meth use. Meth abuse drastically affects the user, as they quickly become fixated on when and where they’ll get their next high and other important things slip by the wayside, such as their family life or work responsibilities.

At Turning Point, we can help you get sober and guide you through a medically supervised detox. Our New Jersey meth addiction rehab uses a variety of therapeutic techniques and programs to set our patients up for success when it comes to getting clean and sober.

Am I Addicted to Meth?

If you have used meth, you may curse the day you started. Meth is an extremely powerful drug which can lead to addiction after just one use, with progressively higher doses being required to achieve the same high. You may find you’ve destroyed your physical and mental health, not to mention your appearance, and you’ve altered the very workings of your mind as you lose everything that’s important to you. If you have stopped caring about your family, your job and/or school, or even looking after your financial wellbeing, you are in the throes of meth addiction. The consequences of meth use are severe, as there is no safe path of chronic meth use. Most meth abusers who don’t seek rehabilitation end up incarcerated or die from an overdose.

Meth affects the body and mind in the following ways:

  • Anxiety
  • Mood swings
  • Suicidal thoughts
  • Skin lesions
  • Poor immunity
  • Extreme weight loss
  • Fatigue
  • Confusion
  • Insomnia
  • Aggressiveness
  • Violent behavior
  • Psychosis
  • Paranoia
  • Tooth loss
  • Appearance changes that make the addict look years or decades older
  • “Meth mites,” or the sensation and hallucination of bugs crawling on the skin

Long Term Effects of Meth Addiction

  • Psychosis
  • Memory loss
  • Violent behavior
  • Weight loss
  • Changes in brain function
  • Defects in motor skills
  • Mood swings

How You Can Safely Detox from Meth

Meth withdrawal is extremely painful and uncomfortable, although it looks different from one addict to the next. In general, though, symptoms of withdrawal from meth may include mood swings, slurred speech, irritability, anger, anxiety, suicidal thoughts, insomnia, and more. That’s why we use medication-assisted therapy and detox, to ease the body’s transition to a meth-free existence in a closely monitored environment. At our New Jersey meth addiction rehab center, we can help to reduce your discomfort during the detox process and provide you with the support you need to get through this time as smoothly as possible.

Difference Between Meth & Crystal Meth

Meth is a stimulant that is derived from amphetamine. It is typically powdered and inhaled through the nose. Crystal meth is distilled meth that is often smoked or injected. Due to the distillation process, crystal meth is more potent and dangerous than meth in its original form.

If someone you love might be addicted to meth or crystal meth, then knowing the differences between them is important, especially to remove early obstacles in the recovery process. Treating someone who uses meth can be much different than treating someone who is addicted to crystal meth. Please call (973) 380-0905 and describe what you know about the drug your loved one uses to our team. We can help identify it and begin forming a treatment plan based on that information.
