According to The National Institutes on Drug Abuse (NIDA), more than 20 million people in the United States have a drug use disorder, with 1.5 million addicted to methamphetamine.
What is Meth?
Methamphetamine, commonly known as meth or crystal meth, is a stimulant drug that gives a physical high and euphoria. Meth is a highly addictive substance, and regular drug abuse can lead to severe consequences.
Why is Meth Abused?
The extreme feelings of euphoria that meth provides are the main reason people take part in substance abuse. Meth can also increase attention and focus. Because of the powerful impact of the drug, the body is quick to develop a dependency on meth, leading to addiction.
How Does Meth Addiction Affect the Brain and Body?
Abusing meth can create harmful side effects on the brain, such as hallucinations and a decline in mental flexibility and motor skills. Long-term effects include psychosis and brain damage. Meth hurts mental health, too, increasing aggressive behavior and mood swings.
Because meth is a stimulant, it stimulates the central nervous system, leading to sleep disorders like insomnia.
Meth can cause premature aging, body spasms, and soreness. The psychological effects of meth can cause mental illness and make an individual pick at their skin or pull out hair. Dependency on a drug commonly leads to a decline in physical appearance due to a lack of concern for self-care and appetite loss.
