How is Methamphetamine Addiction Detected?
In the early stages of chronic abuse, meth users will often attempt to hide their drug use. As the addiction progresses and the drug use becomes more intense, the abusive behavior typically becomes more apparent. Early detection of dependence is important because the sooner a user gets treatment, the better the chance of recovery.
Warning signs that a loved one may be abusing or addicted to methamphetamine include:
- Loss of interest in social interaction or pleasurable activities
- Hyperactivity or restlessness
- Dilated pupils
- Irritability, moodiness, or agitation
- Insomnia or altered sleep patterns
- Reduced appetite or weight loss
- Burns on the fingers or lips
- Bouts of lethargy, depression, fatigue, or sleepiness
