One of the most dangerous drugs known to man is crystal meth and as time goes on it is becoming more popular throughout the country. Unlike many other drugs crystal meth also known as crank or ice can easily be made in anyone’s home from ingredients that can be found in most grocery stores and local drug stores. Not only is crystal meth one of the most addictive drugs it also causes some of the most damage to the abuser.  Crystal meth over a short period of time can hinder the brains ability to produce dopamine. Dopamine is a neurotransmitter that directly affects the brain pleasure center and ultimately can cause brain damage. Individuals who are addicted to crystal meth will continue to abuse the drug so that they have energy and can feel temporary pleasure.

Without a doubt crystal meth is one of the hardest drugs to become clean and stay clean from. It is not uncommon to hear stories of people who struggle with crystal meth addiction to relapse over and over again. Without the professional help of a medically supervised detoxification and a quality addiction treatment center an individual’s battle to escape the grips of crystal meth can be nearly impossible.

With the help of therapists and certified addiction professionals overcoming addiction to crystal meth is possible. In order to achieve long term sobriety it is essential to address the issues that ultimately have caused an addiction to occur. Whether the addiction stems from physical or verbal abuse, trauma issues, genetic predisposition…the professionals at a drug and alcohol rehab program will be able to help clients process their past as well as help them take the necessary actions to build the strong foundation needed to live a life free of chemical dependency.
