 METH ABUSE

CONDITION
Meth for short is a habit-forming stimulant drug which can be also known as chalk, crystal, and speed. Meth can at first cause a rush of good feelings but then users feel edgy, overly excited, angry or afraid. Use of meth can quickly lead to dependency which can cause medical problems such as:

  • High body temperature

  • Severe itching

  • Extreme weight loss

  • Meth Mouth’ – Broken teeth and dry mouth

  • Emotional and cognition problems

  • Anxiety

  • Confusion

The effects of meth usage can last a long time and be followed by a severe come-down, injecting the drug or smoking its crystalline form which leads to a very intense ‘high’ similar to that produced by cocaine but much longer lasting than the effects of cocaine. Regular use of meth can lead to a strong psychological dependency, with increased tolerance to the effects of the drug. Withdrawal symptoms can include depression, anxiety and an intense craving to reuse the drug.

TMS TREATMENT FOR METH ABUSE

TMS is becoming a recognized treatment for Meth abuse.

TMS – Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation, is a technique that can modulate the neural networks in the brain’s reward system, causing a break in the craving, bingeing and withdrawal cycle. TMS works by increasing or decreasing activity in the treatment regions of the brain.
