Also known as meth, methamphetamine is a highly addictive substance. A form of methamphetamine known as crystal meth is found in a clear solid form. Crystal meth has quick and potent effects, which increases the risk of addiction for the user.
Crystal meth alters the way a person’s brain processes dopamine. Dopamine is a chemical that signals pleasure and reward in your brain. As methamphetamine changes the dopamine system, the drug user deals with memory issues, impaired learning and reduced coordination.
