How Meth Addiction Develops
Meth addiction can develop in a number of ways but typically begins with recreational use of the drug. This might start with smoking or snorting meth but often progresses to using the drug intravenously.
As those who use meth increase their dose to get the desired high, they also increase their risk of addiction. Meth is extremely potent and addictive, and once hooked, it can be difficult to break free from its grip.
Signs That Someone Might Be Struggling with Meth Addiction
There are a number of signs that someone might be struggling with meth addiction. These can include:
- Sudden changes in appearance, such as weight loss or gain, extreme tiredness, or sunken eyes
