If you’re suffering from crystal methamphetamine addiction, you are not alone. Our meth addiction treatment program provides comprehensive addiction treatment that treats not only your meth addiction symptoms, but also the underlying mental health conditions that play a significant role in your methamphetamine addiction. Admission into our inpatient drug rehab center in Los Angeles, CA is the first step towards overcoming your addiction to methamphetamine.
Side Effects of Meth Addiction
If you or someone you know is thought to be using crystal meth, this is a serious issue that needs to be addressed. Crystal meth is an illicit drug that can only be purchased illegally, which automatically puts the person in danger. The side effects of meth use include psychosis, irregular heartbeat, delirium, and heart failure.
You may also notice a high level of energy and anxiety, as well as a sense of panic in the person’s demeanor. Here is where you will want to pay attention over the long term. While anyone anxious may have a panicked high-energy level, a person on meth will not be able to “come down” or control their behavior. Someone who is using meth will also be unable to eat. This is due to the stimulating effect accompanied by an intensive case of dry mouth.
When a person is using meth, their eyeballs may appear to bulge out of their sockets, and they will likely have pupils that are overly dilated. If you are trying to help someone who is in the middle of a meth binge, it is best to get medical aid, especially if they have not been sleeping or eating regularly. There can be a severe chemical imbalance resulting from chronic meth use. Here at Westwind Recovery®, our crisis team can assist you with getting the person into a treatment facility. This starts with detox and continues with our sober living services.
