Methamphetamine Addiction and Treatment

Meth Addiction treatments we provide in Winnipeg and throughout Manitoba

What is Methamphetamine? 

It is a highly addictive recreational drug. When ground down from its synthesised crystal form, it becomes an odourless white powder that can be easily dissolved in liquids. When consumed, the drug harshly affects the brain’s central nervous system, increasing a user’s energy but causing life-threatening side effects such as brain bleeds and seizures. Frequent users can develop serious withdrawal symptoms like psychosis and suicidal thoughts, all of which contribute to its high relapse rate.

Depending on the severity of the dependency, meth withdrawal syndrome can be difficult. As the brain works to chemically rebalance itself, the sudden drop in dopamine levels can cause the user to experience intense feelings of depression. The most important thing a person can do to avoid relapsing is to remove his or herself from the environments and/or people that will encourage them to use. Drug withdrawal is much easier to handle with the proper support system.
