Crystal meth (or methamphetamine) is a highly addictive substance taken by smoking, snorting, or injecting it with a needle. It causes a strong rush of euphoria to the brain and the user immediately feels happy, confident, and energetic. The drug’s effects can last anywhere from 6 to 12 hours, and it begins to destroy the body from the first time it is used. Crystal meth causes memory loss, aggression, heart and brain damage, and psychotic behavior. It can also quickly destroy the user’s physical appearance. It can be extremely challenging to detox from meth because of how fast and strong the addiction happens. If you or anyone you know is struggling with a meth addiction, it is important to make the decision to detox. Meth users attempting to detox may experience intense symptoms such as heightened anxiety, depression, psychosis, paranoia, increased appetite, and/or lethargy. The depression caused from crystal meth withdrawal is especially dangerous, which is why it’s very important to experience crystal meth detox in a monitored, clinical setting.
At WhiteSands Treatment, our team of board-certified doctors, professional counselors, attentive nurses, and medical psychiatrists watch each patient closely during the withdrawal period to make their experience as safe and comfortable as possible.
