One of the things that makes crystal meth abuse so dangerous is the fact that this drug is synthetically produced. Over the years that we’ve been treating a variety of addictions here at Rehab British Columbia in Vancouver, we’ve seen the ravages of this drug. Crystal meth, abused over a long period of time, can ruin a life.
Here’s a few things you should know if you or someone you know wants to recover from an addiction to this drug:
- How fast someone can become addicted to this drug depends on several things. For example, research tells us that one of the factors placing people at high risk for addiction is genetic. In other words, if you have a grandmother or grandpa that liked to drink, you might be in a higher risk category for drug abuse.
- Research also tells us this drug is gaining in popularity. Statistics from 2009 put crystal meth behind only cannabis as the most popular drug. A study as recently as 2014 highlights the fact that over half a million people have used this drug.
Rehab British Columbia is dedicated to helping people with crystal meth abuse issues rebuild a quality life. Our counseling sessions help addicts understand the origins of their addiction. Families can even get some therapy. We understand that any kind of addiction affects the people around the addict too.
There are physical issues with this addiction. Along with the risk of stroke and hypertension, people who abuse crystal meth also often suffer from an irregular heartbeat.
