With an intense high that brings its users to a state of extreme euphoria, methamphetamine is a highly addictive stimulant and is one of the most widely abused among drug users. Because of its relatively cheap price and long-lasting high, meth has largely become the preferred drug-choice over crack cocaine.

Meth is such a powerful drug that it is almost instantly habit-forming. It is also referred to as speed, crystal, crank or glass; meth gets its effectiveness by forcing the brain to pump out dopamine. But over time, meth begins to destroy the dopamine receptors in the brain—making it nearly impossible for the user to feel pleasure by any other source.
While this constant flood of neurotransmitters induces a sense of instant well-being for the user, it can have a handful of detrimental effects down the road. Whether smoked, snorted, injected or ingested, meth tolerance builds quickly, creating a dangerous cycle of binge and crash. Crank—then sleep.
Abusing meth can have some serious effects on both the brain and body—and it doesn’t stop there.
Detrimental consequences are plenty, and include:
When every waking moment is spent thinking about the next meth fix, it’s time to seek professional help.
It can be hard for family and friends to understand why you can’t just stop. But as a user, you know how difficult that can be. To successfully free yourself from meth’s powerful grip, it’s necessary to find a treatment center to help guide you.
At Blueprints for Recovery, we work to understand the specific elements and background which led you to your drug dependency. When we focus on this big-picture approach, we often find that co-occurring mental health disorders are lurking beneath the surface. These behavioral conditions, such as anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder, eating disorder or PTSD, can play a significant role in your addiction.
By getting to the root of the problem, our Arizona addiction treatment team can successfully create a customized drug treatment program to address your unique challenges.
Through individual and group therapies, our compassionate counselors strive to bring out your strengths and motivations so that you can bring positivity and hope back into your life.
