What is Methamphetamine?
Methamphetamine is an illegal, manufactured substance that was originally used as a nasal decongestant, though its effects have been found to cause more harm than good on the central nervous system. Classified as a stimulant, meth acts on the brain to create feelings of pleasure and increased activity, but it can also cause side effects like paranoia, lowered immunity, and convulsions.
People who abuse meth will smoke it, swallow it in pill form, snort it, or inject its powder form that has been dissolved. Meth is a drug that is commonly abused in a “binge and crash” format because the high fades quickly. Because of this pattern, however, meth users are at a high risk of developing addictions.
How Does Meth Affect the Nervous System
Meth affects the central nervous system by flooding the brain with dopamine. This leads to a number of extremely powerful euphoric effects, increases in energy, feelings of invulnerability and other psychoactive effects.
Signs of Meth Addiction
Are you concerned about yourself or a loved one? While the side effects of meth addiction vary, there are some general warning signs to watch out for. If you suspect a family member is struggling with meth addiction, now may be a good time to approach them and get them help.
Signs of meth addiction include:
- Drastic weight loss: People with meth addictions have their appetites decreased and may also be spending more money on drugs than on basic essentials like food. As a result, weight loss is a common side effect of meth abuse.
- Strange sleep routine: Because meth is a stimulant, people with addictions can stay awake and alert for hours on end and may have acquired insomnia as a result, or may be sleeping at odd times of the day. If you or a loved one are experiencing periods of hyperactivity, this may be a sign of meth addiction.
- Meth mouth: Meth addiction is known to cause severe teeth and gum problems. One telltale sign of meth addiction is rotting teeth, cavities, and gum infections. One study on meth users found that 58% had untreated tooth decay.
- Paranoia: Is your loved one suddenly extremely distrustful of others and prone to panic? One of the most common side effects of meth addiction is paranoia, along with anxiety, confusion, and hallucinations.
Some studies have also shown that long-term meth addiction can lead to severe changes in the brain related to emotion and memory. People with meth addictions are more prone to memory loss, and a recent study even suggests people who abuse meth are more likely to develop Parkinson’s disease, a disorder that affects your movement, in the future.

How Meth Addiction Can Be Treated
Going to rehab where you can receive professional treatment is your best chance of recovering from meth addiction. The longer you go without seeking help, the more likely you are to overdose on meth, which can lead to severe health conditions like a heart attack, stroke, or organ damage, and all of which can result in death.
At Vita Recovery, we can provide your next steps to recovery after you’ve completed inpatient treatment. Through our IOP or PHP options, you’ll have the chance to relax in our calming, high-end facility while also putting in the work to improve yourself through therapy and our 12-step approach to addiction treatment.
