Methamphetamine is a powerful, highly addictive stimulant to the central nervous system. Common names are meth, ice, and crystal. Methamphetamines take the form of a white, odorless, bitter tasting powder that can be smoked, snorted, or injected.
Methamphetamines are highly addictive, and can lead to a full-blown dependency after just one use. Chronic methamphetamine use depletes the levels of dopamine in your brain, reduces dopamine receptors, and causes neurotoxicity. The brain damage brought on by methamphetamine use can persist long after you stop using.
The withdrawal process from methamphetamine use takes longer and is more severe than other drug addictions. The elimination of methamphetamines from your system require a supervised medical detox process from the professionals at Detox of Delray. Unsupervised methamphetamine detox can lead to strong psychosis, depression, and suicidal thoughts.
