Meth Detox at Banyan Palm Springs
Methamphetamine is a central nervous system stimulant that is similar in chemical makeup to amphetamine. Crystal meth is a type of meth that comes in shiny rock-like chunks. Most meth users will inject, snort, or smoke meth. Both are highly addictive and can cause serious problems including those involving the user’s health, finances, relationships, and appearances. If you or a loved one is addicted to either, get professional meth addiction treatment sooner rather than later.
Methamphetamine Withdrawal During DetoxThe first step to overcoming this addiction is a meth or crystal meth detox that is unfortunately often accompanied by uncomfortable and sometimes even dangerous withdrawal symptoms if neglected. The seriousness of the addiction, the user’s health, and other drug use will all play a role in how severe these symptoms are, so the detox process is unique to each individual.
Although different for everyone, a person may experience the following meth withdrawal symptoms during detox:
- Increased body temperature
- Clammy skin
- Stomach pain
- Irregular heartrate
- Red itchy eyes
- Muscle pain or weakness
- Changes in appetite
- Trouble Speaking
- Depression and sometimes suicidal thoughts
- Intense meth cravings
Just like the withdrawal symptoms are different for everyone, the meth withdrawal timeline will also vary from individual to individual. Although there is no set time, most meth users will start to crash 1 or 2 days after use stops and experience some of the symptoms above. The intensity of these symptoms will usually peak in the first week or so before waning over the following week. While most of the physical symptoms will disappear after 2 to 3 weeks, some psychological symptoms like anxiety and drug cravings may last longer. It is also common for these craving to reappear even years after being sober.
