Meth is highly addictive. Reports indicate that meth has become the most used hard drug in the world. Next Wind Recovery is a substance abuse rehab in New Jersey. We can help you or your loved one recover from meth addiction.
Commonly known as crystal meth, ice, and glass, meth is a powerful synthetic stimulant. Typically, the drug is created in illegal labs using a variety of corrosive and toxic ingredients such as methanol, ether, ammonia, and other reactive metals.
Meth can be administered via injection or can be snorted or smoked. No matter the route of administration, meth releases an enormous amount of dopamine into the brain. As a result, users experience a sense of euphoria, adrenaline rush, and an increased sense of arousal. Meth causes hyperactivity, increased talkativeness, and it causes users to feel energized and results in jumpiness and being overly verbal.
When someone feels the full effects of methamphetamine, they often feel overly confident and that they can accomplish many things at once. Since meth is a powerful stimulant, users can stay up for days until they eventually crash from lack of sleep. When this crash happens, users can sleep for several days. If you are hooked on meth, Next Wind can help. We are a premier New Jersey meth addiction treatment center renowned for evidence-based programs that are proven to work.

Because of meth’s toxicity, people will experience physical reactions to the drug soon after they start using the drug. Crystal meth directly affects the central nervous system and causes auditory, visual, and tactile (physical sensations) hallucinations. The tactile hallucinations cause many meth addicts to experience the sensation of imaginary bugs crawling on their skin. When they pick at their skin to get the bugs off, it leads to scabbing of the skin. Once the skin scabs, they pick at their existing scabs, creating more scabs and starting a vicious cycle.
Other physical effects of meth abuse and addiction include the following:

Meth is usually smoked but can also be snorted, injected, or swallowed.
Meth production is dangerous and requires toxic chemicals that remain in the finished product. Smoking meth exposes the mouth to these harsh chemicals, which erode the teeth and gums. This condition referred to as “meth mouth,” is the clearest indicator of meth addiction.
The psychological and physical impacts of meth addiction are more apparent than with alcohol or other drugs. Common signs and symptoms include:
The risk for overdose from meth is high, especially when used in conjunction with alcohol or other drugs. Studies on long-term meth use show that it is associated with diminished verbal learning and coordination. Meth causes significant changes to areas of the brain that regulate memory and emotions. With successful meth addiction treatment, these brain changes often begin to reverse after a year or so of sobriety. Sadly, for some, these changes are irreversible.
Meth addiction requires an intensive and comprehensive treatment approach. An essential component of New Jersey meth addiction treatment is medical detox. Detox allows patients to withdraw from meth in a safe and clean environment safely.
Once stable, clients will undergo intensive treatment, including therapy such as cognitive-behavioral therapy and other modalities. Meth addiction treatment can also include medication management, life, and coping skills training, holistic therapy, 12-step group support, and aftercare programs.
