Learn About Methamphetamine Addiction Treatment

Treatment for methamphetamine addiction at Bradford Recovery Center in Millerton, PA

Methamphetamine addiction is a type of stimulant use disorder that results from the abuse of methamphetamines, commonly known as meth. Other common names for methamphetamines are crystal meth, blue crystal, ice, and speed.

Meth produces an instant feeling of euphoria and confidence that can fade quickly, which is why many people who abuse methamphetamines typically engage in binge and crash periods of use. It is common for individuals who try meth to develop an addiction in as little as one week, and most individuals develop a tolerance to the drug the more they use it.

As an individual continues to use meth, they will experience withdrawal symptoms once the drug leaves their system. Those withdrawal symptoms will increase their cravings for the drug, making it even more challenging to stop using meth without support.

Bradford Recovery Center in Millerton, Pennsylvania, offers comprehensive treatment for adults age 18 and older who are struggling with certain mental health challenges in addition to methamphetamine addiction. Our expert staff is ready to help you or your loved one take the first steps toward long-term wellness.

Why Consider Treatment at Bradford

Why consider getting methamphetamine addiction treatment at Bradford Recovery Center in Millerton, PA

Even small amounts of methamphetamines can affect your health, making it hard to sleep, decreasing your appetite, and increasing your breathing, heart rate, blood pressure, and body temperature. When individuals take meth at higher doses, it is common for them to act out violently or aggressively.

One of the most common effects individuals experience from untreated methamphetamine addiction is extreme tooth decay, which can cause their teeth to blacken, rot, and even fall out. Some individuals also develop skin sores because of the intense itching that is commonly associated with meth abuse.

Individuals who do not seek treatment for methamphetamine addiction are also at risk for experiencing paranoia, hallucinations, anxiety, depression, and suicidal ideation. Because meth impacts the nervous system, long-term abuse can also affect an individual’s memory and cognition.
