What is Crystal Meth?
Crystal Meth is a methamphetamine-based drug that is illegally manufactured in what is known as meth labs. The stimulant drug received its name due to its crystallized formation, appearing as glass fragments or shiny white-blue rocks in varying sizes. Crystal meth is a Central Nervous System (CNS) stimulant, which produces powerful effects of euphoria and high energy. Methamphetamines are classified as a Schedule II drug in the United States under the Controlled Substances Act. Drugs are categorized by Schedule based on the particular substance’s potential for abuse and addiction, the dangers associated with use, and whether it is currently accepted for medical use. A Schedule II drug is considered to have a high risk for abuse, with limited or heavily restricted medical use. Desoxyn, a prescription drug used to treat attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, is the only form of methamphetamine approved for medicinal purposes.
Street names for Crystal Meth include:
- Chicken Feed
- Crank, Crystal
- Glass, Go Fast
- Stove Top
How is Crystal Meth Abused?
Although crystal meth can be snorted or injected, the most popular method of consumption is by smoking the drug. Crystal Meth causes users to experience a “rush” of pleasurable, euphoric sensations suddenly after taking the drug. The drug triggers an outpour of dopamine levels to be released in the brain at the moment of consumption. However, a meth user’s dopamine receptors become destroyed over time with continued use, and the brain no longer can produce these pleasure sensations naturally on its own. This is what often leads users to further abuse and eventually dependence. Without professional help from an accredited drug rehab facility that specializes in meth addiction treatment, the person will only continue down a dangerous, lethal path.
The Signs and Symptoms of Crystal Meth Dependence
Meth users swallow, snort, inject or smoke the substance. Many who abuse the drug seek to intensify the effects by ingesting higher doses, taking it more frequently, or changing the route of administration. Oftentimes, meth abusers will go without food and remain awake for days while bingeing on crystal meth.
When a person repeatedly takes the drug to maintain the effects of the high and avoid a “crash,” this is called a “binge and crash” pattern of use. This behavior could result in days without food or sleep. It can also easily result in a fatal overdose, especially when other substances are being taken at the same time.

Crystal Meth Detox
For many embarking on the road to recovery, crystal meth detox is will typically be the first phase of treatment conducted at Restore Drug Rehab LA. The detoxification process is performed under clinical supervision. A person who abuses or is dependent on Crystal Meth should never attempt to detox on their own or in the privacy of their own home. Symptoms of Crystal Meth withdrawal can be dangerous, and therefore, requires attention to manage the severity of detox and the patient’s state of health.
Our licensed and caring nurses closely monitor clients during the detoxification phase to ensure their safety and manage symptoms of crystal meth withdrawal. Once traces of the drug are completely drained from the body and the withdrawal process ends, the client then makes the transition into a rehabilitation program. Since the cravings for crystal meth are powerful and the relapse rate is significantly high, it is recommended and highly advised that the detoxification phase of treatment be followed by residential rehab.
