Crystal methamphetamine is a potent stimulant. It attaches to specific receptors in the brain and triggers the release of very powerful chemicals associated with pleasure. People who use crystal meth often report feelings of euphoria, intense and unparalleled feelings of happiness and invincibility, and increase their energy levels as well as provide insatiable sexual appetite.
Meth users also lose weight because the drug can suppress their appetite and cause pounds to melt. For those who want to lose weight, meth can seem like a miracle drug.
Crystal meth produces an energy rush when smoked or injected. It is caused by an increased heart rate and blood pressure that can last up to 30 minutes. After the rush, meth users experience a steady high that can last up to 12 hours. Injecting meth produces a stronger high than smoking or snorting, but the effects wear off faster.
Crystal meth detox is an essential part of any rehabilitation program. Detoxification flushes out all of the drug’s residual toxins and purifies the person’s body, so they no longer experience the unwanted effects of their crystal meth use. The nature and severity of crystal meth withdrawal symptoms depend on how frequently the drug was abused. Empire Detox provides medical and supervised care to help alleviate the uncomfortable symptoms of crystal meth withdrawal. During the detox process, you are monitored and treated for withdrawal symptoms that can include extreme fatigue, flu-like symptoms, insomnia, depression, anxiety, and cravings.
Drug detox is essential to rid your body and mind of harmful substances. It's crucial to remove them safely to avoid severe withdrawal symptoms that can undermine your efforts at recovery. That is why it is essential to receive professional detox treatments.
Your alcohol addiction may start as a couple of beers or a few glasses of your favorite cocktail. Over time, your social drinking can evolve into several bottles, drinking alone, and needing a drink instead of wanting one.
Medical support is optimal for detox from prescription drugs. At Empire Detox, we use medications that manage prescription drug withdrawal and allow our patients to remain comfortable during detoxification.
