Meth Addiction: There’s Great Hope

Play Video

When basic human needs like food, sex, and thirst are satisfied, our brains release dopamine–stimulating the pleasure center. Meth (methamphetamine) activates that same system, causing a rush of pleasure that artificially rewards the user with a prolonged high.

The first meth high can be intense–and short-lived. As the flood of dopamine recedes from the brain, it results in an emotional crash that causes depression, fear, insomnia, and paranoia. This binge-and-crash cycle can drive users to take more and more of the drug as they seek out the effects of the initial high. This is called chasing the high –and results in surprisingly rapid addiction. According to a 2014 National Survey on Drug Use and Health, approximately 1.6 million people reported using methamphetamine in the U.S.

The first step is diagnosis.
