In 2020, almost 3000 lives were lost due to drug misuse in the UK. Every one of those deaths was avoidable. Every one of those people deserved help.
Recovering from methamphetamine addiction isn’t easy, but it’s better than the alternative.
Crystal meth is commonly cut with unknown substances that make it hard to know the strength of what you’re taking, increasing your risk of overdose and death.
Chronic use over time can take a toll on your mood, behaviour and physical appearance and is linked to brain damage and psychosis. It’s also uniquely addictive due to its compelling and prolonged nature.
Crystal meth use increases your risk of:
- Skin and dental problems
- High blood pressure and heart attack
- Brain damage, psychosis
- Stroke, organ damage
- Coma, death
