Substance abuse, including amphetamine abuse, has many negative physical consequences. As with many other drugs, amphetamines act on the central nervous system and wreak havoc on the body. Drugs in the amphetamine class cause symptoms such as elevated heart rate and blood pressure, as well as the potential for catastrophic heart attacks or seizures. That’s why Palm Partners Recovery Center can be crucial for finding the help you or a loved one need. We use both time-tested and innovative methods to help patients conquer amphetamine addiction in our state-of-the-art, peaceful treatment facilities.
Amphetamines as a Drug
Amphetamines are classified as stimulant drugs, which people turn to for a variety of reasons. Some may use them for energy, others for boosting confidence, and still others simply enjoy the type of high they provide. As with most drugs, abusing amphetamines can cause addiction over time. Several types of different drugs fall into the amphetamine category, including speed and meth.
Amphetamines can be taken in different ways that range from smoking the drug to ingesting it in pill form. Some forms of amphetamine are legal medications that have a high potential for abuse, such as Ritalin or Adderall, while others (such as meth) are illegal.
People who abuse amphetamines tend to have behaviors associated with stimulant use, such as anxiety, insomnia, weight loss, and other similar issues. Whereas legal forms of amphetamines are often used to treat attention disorders, taking them when not prescribed or in incorrect dosages can actually cause nervous, distracted behaviors. Use of illegal stimulants, especially meth, is also known to result in paranoia and problems with tooth decay called “meth mouth.” Meth use is also associated with a higher risk of diseases like HIV and hepatitis. Eventually, tolerance develops with amphetamines, meaning more of the drug must be taken to get the same high.
Help for Amphetamine Addiction
Although amphetamine withdrawal can be uncomfortable, initial symptoms like depression and sleep problems will be addressed and remedied with treatment. Withdrawals do subside in time, and patients can learn how to enjoy life without depending on amphetamines.
