Anatomy of a Meth User: A Visual Representation


Having a visual aid makes it much easier sometimes to understand what takes place inside our brain when referring to substance use behaviors and addiction. Meth addiction affects thousands of people every year and many people don't understand why the user doesn't just stop their drug use behavior. Methamphetamine use affects areas of the brain that are responsible for pleasure and changes the way our brains function. Habitual meth use causes serious damage to brain cells causing possible permanent brain damage in the user. This visual aid will help you get a better understanding of how meth is abused, what takes place in the brain when meth is used, and the negative effects associated with methamphetamine abuse.
