Stimulants, or uppers, speed everything up. Initially users experience a boost of energy and feeling of euphoria. Even small doses increase alertness and physical activity while decreasing appetite. While stimulants initially cause your brain cells to release chemicals that make you feel good, over time they can permanently impair your ability to feel pleasure without the drug.
Methamphetamine is commonly produced from cold or allergy medications and may contain chemicals like brake fluid, antifreeze, battery acid, lye and drain cleaner. Users quickly discover that the drug overpowers other interests. It can become harder and harder to maintain the high even with more and more of the drug. Most synthetic drugs, including MDMA (Ecstasy), are stimulants.
Ace Recovery for Men has Cognitive Behavioral treatment as one of its treatment components. Research has shown that Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) can have a positive effect on people trying to get off stimulant drugs. Let us help.
