Meth Addiction Treatment

Methamphetamine is a derivative of amphetamine, which is a potent central nervous system stimulator. Amphetamines are frequently prescribed for medical conditions such as ADHD, narcolepsy, and clinical obesity and are highly effective when properly used. Methamphetamine, referred to as meth, crystal meth, crystal, and crank, is illegally produced in meth labs and sold as a recreational drug. 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.

What is Meth?

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.

How Does Meth Affect the Body?

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:

  • Sudden and dramatic weight loss over a short period
  • Meth mouth—a condition characterized by the appearance of rotten or browning teeth that fall out due to the extreme acidity of methamphetamine combined with poor oral hygiene by the user
  • Open sores or lesions on the skin
  • Rough skin that makes users look older than their actual age.
  • Intense euphoria
  • Decreased motivation
  • Increased depression
  • Suicidal thoughts
  • Self-harming behaviors

The Signs and Symptoms of Meth Addiction

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:

Rapid and extreme weight loss

Intense itching and picking that causes sores and scabs

Burns on the fingers and lips

Erratic sleep patterns


Twitching, facial tics, or spasmodic movements

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.

How Crystal Meth Addiction Treatment in NJ Works at Next Wind

At Next Wind Recovery, we provide evidence-based treatments for meth addiction and co-occurring mental health disorders.
