Methamphetamine is a dangerous drug that is illegal and mostly sold on the streets, though a weaker prescription form of the drug with the brand name Desoxyn is occasionally prescribed to narcolepsy patients. If you or a loved one is addicted to the drug, you will need a methamphetamine recovery program to help break the addiction.

Due to this big change in how a person feels, most meth users will continue to use more of the drug, needing a bigger dose each time in order to get the same rush and euphoric feelings. Continued use of larger dosages can lead to dependency, abuse and addiction. It can also lead to some fairly dangerous side effects, some of which can be severe or even fatal. They include:

  • Chest pains
  • Heart attacks
  • Breathing difficulties
  • Paranoia
  • Seizures
  • Strokes
  • Mood swings
  • Boils
  • Weight loss?

The Five Stages of Recovery from Crystal Methamphetamine

Stage 1: Withdrawal (Days 0 – 15), Also known as the “sleep, eat, and drink” stage, your body and brain are in healing overdrive

 Stage 2: The Honeymoon (Days 16 – 45), A lot of people will relapse here because of this overconfidence. But not you.

 Stage 3: The Wall (6 Weeks – 4 Months), The Wall is often where people will relapse.

Stage 4: Adjustment (Months 4 – 6) ,Adjustment” because that’s what characterizes this time period—adjusting, physically, socially, and emotionally, to life without crystal.

Stage 5: Ongoing Recovery (Months 6 – 12), Recovery is always ongoing.
