Meth addiction recovery

Methamphetamines are highly addictive, and individuals who become dependent are unable to feel pleasure when they are not using the drug. Meth is known to overstimulate specific processes in the body, so users feel more alert or anxious than usual. Unfortunately, people who become addicted often face significant challenges in other areas of their lives. Find resources to help young people suffering from meth addiction to detox and move toward recovery.

Signs of meth addiction

People who are under the influence of crystal meth may display the following symptoms:

  • Bloodshot eyes with dilated pupils
  • Changes in sleep and appetite
  • Convulsions and tremors
  • Dental health problems, dry mouth and bad breath
  • Facial sores and acne
  • High body temperature and sweating
  • Increased physical activity
  • Irritability, paranoia and unpredictable behavior
  • Jaw clenching and intense scratching
  • Manic, repetitive actions
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Rapid heart and breathing rates
  • Temporary euphoria
  • Weight loss
