Methamphetamine (meth, speed, chalk) is a potent stimulant that can increase energy, pleasure, and mood.

The drug produces an unparalleled euphoric high by causing the brain to release dopamine levels 12 times that of everyday pleasurable activities. However, with each significant high comes a profound crash as the drug wears off. In an effort to avoid the crash, users resort to taking more meth, more frequently. Over time, meth negatively alters brain chemistry and cognitive abilities, making it nearly impossible for meth users to experience pleasure. Meth addiction can also lead to striking changes in physical appearance; impairment to memory, judgement, and motor coordination; violent behavior; anxiety; insomnia; paranoia, hallucinations, delusions; and death. Without proper treatment, meth addiction can easily destroy a user’s body, brain, career and relationships.

Signs & Symptoms of meth abuse:

  • Increased attention and decreased fatigue

  • Changes to sleep patterns
  • Changes to appetite
