Common Questions About Meth Addiction

Some of the most common questions we field about meth addiction are:

Methamphetamine, also known as crystal meth, is an addictive stimulant that can cause dependency in as little as one use. A rush of dopamine produced by the drug stimulates the brain’s reward system, creating the urge to consume more and making it difficult to find pleasure in anything else. Due to the intense chemical reaction occurring in the brain, methamphetamine is extremely dangerous and addictive. There are many nicknames for meth, most notably crystal, glass, blue, and ice. It is commonly found as a white, odorless, bitter-tasting crystalline powder or in shards resembling broken glass.

Some common signs of meth addiction include:

  • Hyperactivity
  • Alertness
  • Paranoia
  • Risky and Dangerous Behaviors
  • Violence
  • Impulsiveness
  • Financial or Legal Problems
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Confusion
  • Difficulty Sleeping
  • Mood Disturbances
  • Visual and Auditory Hallucinations
  • Delusions
  • Psychosis
  • Weight Loss
  • Twitching and Facial Tics
  • Loss of Appetite
  • Staying Awake for Days at a Time

Another sign of methamphetamine use is withdrawal. Withdrawal symptoms can vary depending on the individual, but some common signs include:

  • Psychosis
  • Drowsiness

  • Sense of Impending Doom

Common routes of administration for meth are intravenous (IV), inhalation, and insufflation (snorting). Intravenous is a direct injection using a needle into a vein. Methamphetamine users are especially vulnerable to contracting viral infections such as Hepatitis C or HIV. In fact, methamphetamine use was declared in the vast majority of new HIV and Hep-C cases in Los Angeles last year. In some clinics, over 90% of new cases simultaneously reported methamphetamine use.

Chronic methamphetamine abuse can lead to:

  • Depression
  • Mood Swings
  • Erratic Behavior
  • Severe Dental Problems
