Signs of Methamphetamine Use
Methamphetamine use is usually easy to identify especially if it is someone you are close with such as a loved one or family member. They typically have specific behaviors and look a particular way. Most meth users will go through the binging, tweaking, and crashing stages. If you notice your loved one having high levels of energy for an extended period of time followed by long periods of sleep, this is a big clue that they are abusing meth. They may also be overheating which causes them to sweat even if they haven’t done anything physical or it is cold. They may be paranoid or hallucinating.
The meth will cause the user to lose their appetite resulting in rapid weight loss and their skin may develop sores from them picking at themselves. As mentioned before confronting a user while they are tweaking is dangerous especially if they do not want to get clean, so approach the situation with caution.
