National Meth Awareness Day - 2021-11-30
What is National Meth Awareness Day?
A new survey found one out of six young adults have recently used illicit drugs, with crystal meth being the most common. Scientists now know why just one use can make someone feel hooked and addicted; it's called "methamphetamine sensitization." A person using meth may experience a temporary sense of heightened euphoria, alertness, and energy. This is because the drug increases dopamine levels in their brain which helps them feel more motivated to continue doing what they're doing at that moment or any other time during use as well. Furthermore, there are higher concentrations located around reward areas where people want to get those feelings back again because this chemical releases quickly into our brains making us want MORE after just one little hit! Taking even small amounts of meth can cause harmful health effects. These include abdominal cramps and convulsions, mood swings or depression in some people who use the drug frequently over time; increased heart rate which may lead to palpitations (awareness that your heartbeat is racing); decreased appetite leading to an unhealthy diet due to lack of nutrients such as iron-deficiency anemia common among chronic users since red blood cells are destroyed more quickly than usual when someone has been using other stimulants like cocaine simultaneously while taking methamphetamine for example. Many people who could benefit from treatment do not know they have an addiction or think that the program won't work for them. However, with a professional care plan in place recovery is possible!
