How to Get Your Child Treatment for Meth Addiction

Meth is a powerful stimulant that is highly addictive and highly dangerous. Meth affects your brain in many negative ways. Meth causes changes in the brain circuits that control decision-making, stress, reward system, and impulse control. There are strong indications that users suffer brain damage, including memory impairment and an increasing inability to grasp abstract thoughts. You can recover from this addiction and retain memory and the ability to function in society over time with the help of a drug rehab center.

Some crystal meth drug rehab centers will tell you that when a person relapses shortly after attending their drug rehabilitation program the person didn’t work the program. We here at Free My Addiction know that the program failed the individual. This is most often the case with chronic relapses. When you have a shoe size of ten would you keep trying to fit your foot into a size six? This is the same with Drug Rehab Facilities, sometimes a different approach is called for and needed.

The approach that we use is to match the drug rehab program with the addiction. This approach has better success than choosing a program at random. All addictions are different as all people are different. For instance, should a person with no history of mental illness attend a Dual Diagnosis program? Of course not. Some drug rehab centers rely on repeat business. They may seem cost-effective but if you send someone there 2,3,4, times their center is not effective. We receive feedback from people and have compiled years of research on Drug Rehab Centers in the United States.

Adolescents, teens, and young people who use meth will quickly develop a tolerance. This typically causes the person to need more to “get their fix”.

Signs of meth use are not too noticeable right away, but there are physical, emotional, and behavioral signs of meth use that parents should watch for.

Physical Signs of Meth Use

Addiction to any drug will eventually show signs and symptoms, however, meth is particularly destructive to the physical appearance. Physical signs of meth use include the following:

  • Inability to sit still
  • Noticeable and sudden weight loss
  • Skin sores or track marks
  • Rapid eye movement
  • Twitching, facial tics, jerky movements, tremors
  • Dilated pupils
  • Burns, particularly on the lips or fingers
  • Rotting teeth
  • Extreme weight loss
