Crystal Meth Detox and Rehab Treatment

What is Crystal Meth

Crystal Meth Addiction

Crystal Meth is a highly addictive central nervous system stimulant. Crystal meth looks like shiny glass-like fragments or white powder. Crystal meth usually smells like ammonia and is bitter tasting. It is most commonly referred to as “meth” and has a few other names, such as Crystal Meth, Tina, Glass, Ice, etc. It has a long-lasting effect that can keep an individual high for as long as 12 hours. Crystal meth is human-made using the most horrible products such as ephedrine, acetone, drain cleaner, lithium, kerosene, paint thinner, and iodine. Crystal meth is very hard on the body and the mind. It suppresses the appetite. Crystal meth can cost as low as $5 for an amount that can last 24hours for some users making it cheap; this makes the drug look attractive. Crystal meth is also very easy to get as it is manufactured in the same cities and environments it is used in.

Crystal Meth Abuse

Crystal meth can be consumed in the following ways:


Crystal Meth is usually smoked in a glass pipe, much as is cocaine. After only one smoke, it can be highly addictive, depending on the user’s tolerance level.


Crystal Meth can also be sniffed; however, this can cause permanent damage to one’s nostrils. Sometimes, a plastic nosepiece must be surgically inserted.


Crystal Meth can be injected in a dry state or dissolved in water, whichever is preferred. A user is doubly at risk, not only due to the drug’s effects but also due to the risks of “shooting up.” Quite often, needles are shared, and diseases such as hepatitis C, Aids, among others, are contracted.
