Meth is an awful drug made from very caustic, toxic materials that individuals can form an addiction to easily. Meth is known to rot teeth, destroy brain matter, and cause permanent cognitive decline in users regardless of circumstances. The drug can be used in multiple ways and in different forms. Most users smoke the drug, and each method affects the user in a different way.
Meth users can experience several dementia symptoms due to brain cell destruction as well as a higher chance of developing Parkinson’s. Meth causes the brain to release massive amounts of dopamine, which triggers pleasure in the user. Your brain responds to this by working quickly in its euphoric state.
Simultaneously triggering epinephrine and norepinephrine, these produce dangerous effects like increased heart rate and blood pressure. Most drug sessions for meth users consist of binging the drug for days a time, during which the user will go without food and sleep.
In Virginia, the number of drug overdoses is almost double the number of car accidents and gun deaths. This number has risen to a staggering height on the charts in the last 10 years as laced heroin and stronger stimulants hit the black markets. There’s been an unintentionally positive effect on the rate of meth overdoses in the last decade as drug users move from opioids to stimulants to escape the higher chances of being victim to fentanyl overdosing.
While meth use seems quite low statistically, a non-zero percentage of the population in Virginia is still too high. According to SAMHSA, the 2019 count showed that 0.4% of residents over the age of 11 have used meth at least once in the last year, which is a similar rate across more specific age groups. In 2020, meth overdoses increased by a shocking 94%. This is where Landmark’s services come into play for Virginians struggling with substance abuse.
