People across the United States and New Hampshire use meth daily. The popular stimulant works by speeding up messages from the brain to the nervous system and body, making it a popular choice for people looking to enhance productivity, lose weight, or enjoy the dopamine rush of stimulant drugs. Unfortunately, like other synthetic drugs, meth is dangerous and deadly. Meth withdrawal can be difficult to endure without professional help from a meth addiction treatment program.
If you or someone you love is struggling with meth, know you are not alone. Our New Hampshire clinic can help.

What Does Meth Do to the Body and Why Is it Dangerous?
As a stimulant, meth speeds up processes like heart rate and metabolism. Meth can cause increased sensations, manic behavior, joy, elation, paranoia, and confusion. It can also increase heart rate and body temperature, leading to seizures and heart attacks during an overdose. Meth also increases arousal and can make people more social, making it a popular drug in some clubbing circles.
Often made in home labs, meth is cheap, easy to get, and made from harmful chemicals that can damage organ tissue and cause long-term health and death. In its more concentrated crystallized form, methamphetamine powder is called”crystal met.”It’s hard to know what is in a dose of meth because it’s made in unregulated labs, and dealers do not disclose ingredients.
Both types of meth give people a fast and powerful high by releasing high dopamine levels. Dopamine is a naturally occurring chemical that gives us feelings like pleasure, joy, and mental focus. It also causes a”dopamine reward effect” This means the more dopamine someone takes, the more dopamine they will want. While the brain produces dopamine daily, meth provides an immense surge of dopamine instantly, making it highly addictive. It can be especially addictive for those with co-occurring mood disorders like depression, anxiety, or bipolar disorder.
Meth Withdrawal Symptoms
A meth high can last up to 12 hours, after which the body starts to re-regulate or” come down” During this time, the body slows down, leading to low mood, depression, anger, anxiety, and fatigue. The more often someone uses meth, the more likely they will develop withdrawal symptoms when the drug leaves their system.
Withdrawal differs from the”come down” effect. When someone develops an addiction, the brain stops making dopamine and relies on meth for dopamine and other chemical processes. During this stage, the brain believes it cannot survive without meth. Withdrawal symptoms can include:
- Drug cravings
- Changes in appetite
- Changes in sleep
- Carb cravings
- Difficulty staying awake
During withdrawal, willpower is not enough to stop someone from using more meth or other drugs. Someone can become a danger to themselves or others. That’s why it’s important to undergo detox treatment in a safe, drug-free environment.
