The physical effects of meth addiction last long after the drug has been flushed out of the system, and very often the damage is permanent, giving rise to medical conditions that former addicts will have to live with for the rest of their lives. Apart from the psychological damage, meth wrecks cells and keeps the body from repairing itself. It screws up the chemistry in the brain, causing psychological and behavioral problems, it damages neurons too and prolonged use diminishes cognitive function, and causes diseases such as Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s. It overtaxes the heart and blood vessels, causing acute hypertension. Meth addiction also brings about liver disease much like alcohol addiction would.
And the damage and destruction is not confined to one’s insides. Nothing sucks beauty and youth out of a person more efficiently and more comprehensively than meth. Aside from inhibiting blood flow, and the oxygen and nutrients that it brings to the body, meth’s long lasting stimulant properties cuts off feelings of hunger. Meth addicts “forget” to eat, and they end up starving themselves without feeling it, losing weight until they are nothing. The meth mouth, with its discolored gums and rotted teeth, requires lots and lots of costly dental reconstruction. Skin tends to be riddled with acne and sores and wounds that have arisen from picking at the skin due to some hallucinations of bugs crawling underneath the skin.
Those who want to unchain themselves from the shackles of addiction may seek help from a treatment center, such as Simple Recovery in Orange County, but those who want regain their dignity and rejoin life, need surgery, reconstruction, and perhaps some anti-aging treatments such as Dr. Work in Fresno, just to look like themselves again.
