What Is Methamphetamine?

Methamphetamine, a synthetic drug, has been around for many decades. It is similar to amphetamine which is also a stimulant. There is one major difference between them: methamphetamine’s chemical structure has been slightly altered to make it more potent and easier for producers.

Powder is the most popular form of methamphetamine. It can be snorted or smoked, and injected. You can also get it in pills, but these are often used as decoys since they don’t contain any active ingredients. Methamphetamine has similar effects to cocaine. It increases energy, alertness, and provides a feeling of euphoria. Meth does not give you an immediate high like cocaine. It takes meth longer to kick in, and can last for up to 12 hours.

Methamphetamine effects last approximately eight hours after being used. Users who use methamphetamine regularly will develop tolerance over time. They need to take more to experience the effects. If left untreated, this can lead to addiction. However, treatment is possible. Meth abuse can lead to weight loss, skin infections, tooth decay, and mouth and throat damage due to chewing glass and eating non-food items. Additionally, meth users have higher blood pressure, heart rate, and body temperature.

What Is Methamphetamine Addiction?

Methamphetamine (or meth) is a highly addictive stimulant. Methamphetamine is made from many chemicals, including pseudoephedrine or ephedrine. You can smoke, inject, inhale, or swallow meth. It can also be made into liquid meth or crystal meth. It is popular because it induces feelings of euphoria, alertness, and paranoia. The United States has a significant problem with meth addiction. It is estimated that 15% of those who use meth will become addicted. Crystal methamphetamine is still illegal in many states. However, it’s one of the most abused drugs in America.

Treatments For Methamphetamine Addiction

Here are the top methamphetamine addiction treatments:

1) Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), is the most effective treatment for methamphetamine dependence. CBT is an evidence-based treatment that works because it helps people change their thoughts and behaviors in order to improve their lives.

Recognizing that you are suffering from methamphetamine addiction and need to get help is the first step in your recovery. Although it may seem obvious, many people don’t realize that they have a problem until it is too late or when they are already addicted. It’s time to be honest about your thoughts if you suspect you are struggling with meth addiction. Are you obsessed with getting more meth? Are you unable to relax without the drug? Do you feel like your relationships are suffering as a result of your meth use? If you answered yes to any of these questions, it is time to reflect on the impact meth use has had on your life and make a decision to stop using it.

Once you have determined that meth use is a problem, CBT can be used to help control them so they don’t spiral out-of-control.

2) The Matrix Model

The Matrix Model uses motivational interviewing (MI) and cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT). It was created by Dr. John Kelly, and his colleagues from the University of New Mexico, Albuquerque, to help methamphetamine addicts. However, it is also being used to treat other forms of drug abuse.

The model begins by identifying the reasons the patient uses meth and then develops strategies to change those behaviors. Each patient is assessed by the therapist who helps them to identify their triggers and develop alternative ways to resist the temptation to use meth. The therapists also teach clients how to resist negative emotions or stressors that could lead them back to addiction.

This program has a high success rate. It is reported that about 70% of patients see significant improvement after the program ends. There are even evidence to suggest that it might be more effective than traditional therapies like group therapy sessions or 12-step programs.

3) Contingency Management Intervention

Positive behavior is encouraged by contingency management interventions that use incentives and rewards. You might be eligible to redeem points for a new phone, gift card, or counseling session. This intervention is most effective in treating addiction when used with other methods, such as cognitive behavioral therapy. It can be used for several months.

Patients learn to manage their behavior by being rewarded for positive behaviors and discouraged from doing negative ones. Some contingencies can be designed to avoid drug use. For example, you might receive $10 if you do not use drugs at your next appointment. This intervention is particularly useful for young patients, who may not be able to resist drugs using external reinforcement or motivation.
