How to Fight Meth Addiction in Joliet

Methamphetamine, also known as meth, crank, chalk or speed, is an illegal drug in the same class as cocaine and heroin. Meth is most commonly used as a club drug. Like other addictive drugs, it primarily acts as a stimulant, after which it systematically destroys the body. This leads to serious health conditions, including memory loss, aggression, psychotic behavior, and potential heart and brain damage. As far as the state of Joliet is concerned, meth poses a much lower threat than many other illicit drugs, but usage has become quite common on the streets in the last couple of years.

The bottom-line is that meth addiction is devastating, which is why professional help from a rehab center should be sought as soon as possible.

Prescription medications include, but are not limited to: Xanax. All of these drugs are physically and emotionally addictive and should be treated with great respect. These medications need to be used as prescribed in order to avoid an addiction. If you find yourself abusing the medication, please contact your prescribing physician immediately or call the staff at Affordable Rehab of Joliet .

It is rare that the person abusing prescription medication began taking these medications with the idea in mind of becoming an addict. In general terms, the person takes the medication to "feel better" physically, hoping they will gain some relief from their pain. Another effect of the medication is it provides people a feeling of "well being", which they have been lacking. In an attempt to reduce the pain even further and enhance the feeling of "well being", the individual begins to take additional medication. What happens is a tolerance to the drug is developed, so the person requires more and more medication. Soon, the feeling of "well being" can not be achieved, the pain although diminished is still present, but an addiction to the medication is now present.

If addicted, never discontinue the use of prescription medication on your own. There can be severe medical and psychological consequences. Please call Affordable Rehab of Joliet at call (312) 212-3025 and we will assist you in locating a quality healthcare professional or detox program.

What Causes Meth Addiction?

Meth intake causes your brain to be flooded with dopamine. It causes the release of extra dopamine and hinders the cleanup of dopamine in the synaptic clefts between neurons. The resultant high is what makes meth so addictive. To attain this same high, addicts go for higher doses, but this results in the depletion of dopamine and other neurotransmitters in the brain. In addition, meth addiction also causes a variety of physical and psychological problems.
