Common Signs of Meth Use and Addiction
Signs of meth use and addiction can be more obvious than other substances, but this is not always the case. Those who use meth for long periods of time are likely to have physical problems that are visible, as well as mental health problems that affect their cognitive function as well as emotional and psychological well-being.
- Strange behavior
- Poor dental health
- Skin sores
- Mood swings
- Rapid weight loss
Common Meth Withdrawal Symptoms
Meth is extremely taxing on a person’s body and mind. In withdrawal, a person tends to experience symptoms of a crash in which their body attempts to stabilize after a meth binge.
Typical meth withdrawal symptoms include:
One in three users reports having symptoms associated with “meth mouth.” This term refers to numerous disturbing side effects resulting from meth use. Problems include rotting teeth, gum disease, loss of teeth, and mouth abscesses or infections. Concerns such as abscesses require emergency medical attention.
Those who use meth and snort the drug are likely to have damaged nasal passageways. Injecting meth can cause sores and infections at injection sites. Sores that result from scratching are reported by about a third of meth users.Treatment for
Meth Use and Addiction
The effects of meth on the mind and body can be severe. This is partly because meth is often used in binges. Prolonged neglect of self-care needs can have devastating effects on a person’s body and mind. The healing process involves attention to proper nutrition, sleep hygiene, developing healthy and positive habits and routines, and other improvements in general wellness.
