Methamphetamine is a stimulant that gives users an immediate “high” and causes them to feel that they have more energy and are more focused.  The high of methamphetamine does not last long, so users tend to use more often.  The high is created by a flood of dopamine in the brain which gives users a sense of euphoria.  This “high”, however, is short-lived and is frequently followed by a “crash”.

As a result, users tend to go on binge and crash cycles where they give up food, sleep, and other activities in order to chase the high.  Methamphetamines can be smoked, inhaled, snorted, or injected.  Common names for Methamphetamine are ice, meth, crystal meth, speed, chalk, or crank.  Some of the symptoms of Methamphetamine addiction are:

  • Using larger and larger amounts of the drug.
  • Continued use despite emotional, financial, legal, physical, or relationship consequences.
  • Craving the drug.
  • Decreased ability to function at work or home.
  • Increased intolerance.
  • Spending significant amounts of time preparing to get high, getting high, or recovering from the last high.

If you or someone you know is struggling with an addiction to methamphetamines, New Dimensions can help.
