The National Institute on Drug Abuse’s latest Methamphetamine Research Report offers telling statistics on use and addiction within the United States. In 2021 alone, “approximately 32,537 people died from an overdose involving psychostimulants with abuse potential other than cocaine (primarily methamphetamine).” Over 2.5 million people aged 12 or older reported using the drug within the 12 months prior to being surveyed. Due to the prevalence of, and risk associated with, meth use, one should be sure to understand how meth can have such a grasp on its users. When it comes to Pennsylvania meth addiction and rehab, our staff at Promont Wellness are qualified to offer outpatient, intensive outpatient program (IOP), and partial hospitalization program (PHP) treatment. Read on to learn signs, symptoms, dangers, and treatment options for meth addiction.

What are the signs & symptoms of meth use?

Methamphetamine, also known as meth, is a powerful and highly addictive stimulant drug that can have a range of physical and psychological effects on the body. Some common signs and symptoms include:

  • Physical Signs: Meth use can cause physical changes in the body, such as dilated pupils, rapid heartbeat, high blood pressure, sweating, and a loss of appetite. Meth users may also experience weight loss, dental problems (known as “meth mouth”), and skin sores.
  • Behavioral Signs: Meth use can lead to changes in behavior, such as increased energy, agitation, irritability, and aggression. Meth users may also exhibit obsessive or compulsive behaviors, such as repetitive movements or picking at their skin.
  • Psychological Signs: Meth use can cause psychological symptoms such as anxiety, paranoia, hallucinations, delusions, and psychosis. Meth users may experience intense mood swings, depression, and suicidal thoughts.
  • Social Signs: Meth use can lead to social problems such as a decline in personal hygiene, difficulty maintaining relationships, and increased risk-taking behaviors. Meth users may also withdraw from friends and family, experience financial difficulties, and have legal problems.
  • Drug Paraphernalia: Meth use is often associated with drug paraphernalia such as glass pipes, needles, syringes, lighters, and spoons. Meth users may also have burns or scars on their fingers or mouth from smoking or injecting the drug.

It’s important to seek help from a healthcare professional or addiction specialist if you or someone you know is struggling with meth addiction. Treatment can help individuals overcome their addiction and achieve long-term recovery.

The Benefits of Outpatient Meth Treatment

Generally, treatment for meth addiction will involve a combination of behavioral therapies, medications, and support groups.

Behavioral therapies, such as cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), contingency management, and motivational interviewing, can help the person identify and change negative thought patterns and behaviors that contribute to their addiction. These therapies can be delivered in individual or group settings, and can be highly effective in helping people overcome their addiction.

Medications can also be used to treat meth addiction, although there are currently no medications that are specifically approved for this purpose. However, several medications that are approved for other uses, such as antidepressants and antipsychotics, are effective in reducing meth use and cravings.

Outpatient, intensive outpatient programs (IOPs), and partial hospitalization programs (PHPs) are all forms of addiction treatment that offer different levels of care to individuals struggling with substance abuse. These options typically include behavioral therapy and medication available through our Pennsylvania meth addiction treatment center.

Stories of hope

What clients say about us...

“I’d like to thank Courtney from the bottom of my heart. She helped me through the scary process of getting into treatment and then treated me with respect and compassion. The treatment process was scary, vulnerable and uncomfortable, but she did everything she could to make me feel as comfortable as possible. I have become an active member of the recovery community and could not have done it without the guidance and expertise Courtney provided throughout treatment.”

  • Cost-effective: Outpatient treatment is generally less expensive than inpatient treatment.
  • Support: Outpatient treatment offers ongoing support and accountability for individuals in recovery.

An aftercare program as part of addiction treatment is essential for long-term recovery. Aftercare programs support individuals transitioning back into their routines and allow them to connect with others in recovery. These programs are beneficial because they help build a supportive community, allowing those affected by addiction to stay accountable and continue working on the skills they’ve learned during addiction treatment. By providing a safe space for individuals in addiction recovery, aftercare programs can be instrumental in helping people achieve lasting sobriety.
