Addiction damages that part of the brain that allows us to choose to do difficult things. It requires external support to be re-engaged and to function properly. Do follow Dr. Mitchell's advice,. Meth addiction is one of the most gripping, and one of the most damaging.

In brief: Meth withdrawal
Methamphetamine (meth) exposure is primarily associated with deleterious effects to dopaminergic neurons.
Repeated passive injections of the drug given in a single day or over a few days cause significant and long-term depletion of Dopamine and serotonin such depletion causes severe and rapid symptoms of depression amotivation suicidal thoughts. Meth becomes the sustaining chemical for the brain.
