Meth abuse and addiction claims a staggering 25,000 lives each year, and dramatically reduces the quality of life for hundreds of thousands more.
Battle Creek, MI (PRWEB) January 24, 2014
A Forever Recovery, a leading addiction treatment center that has pioneered a moral reasoning approach to recovery that empowers each individual client to access the spiritual, cognitive, and fellowship support that they need, has published a new blog post that focuses on recovering from methamphetamine (meth) addiction.
“Meth abuse and addiction claims a staggering 25,000 lives each year, and dramatically reduces the quality of life for hundreds of thousands more,” commented A Forever Recovery’s CEO Per Wickstrom. “And while qualified and caring treatment from trained experts is one way we can address this epidemic, we aren’t going to win this war unless more people are empowered with facts before they head down the spiraling road of addiction – not after.”
To that end, A Forever Recovery’s blog post highlights that:
- Meth is classified as a Schedule II drug given its high potential for addiction; other drugs in this category include cocaine, opium, morphine and others.
- Most addicts get their meth supply illegally from labs in the US and around the world.
- Meth can induce hallucinations, violent mood swings, paranoia, psychosis, hypertension, loss of appetite and sleep disorders.
Added Per Wickstrom: “Unlike some other substances such as heroin, addiction to meth is not instant and treatment is possible. Many patients across the country and around the world have benefited from cognitive therapy at an inpatient facility, which provides them with comprehensive, ‘round the clock care and support from experienced professionals.”
