About Mephedrone Addiction



Because Mephedrone is part stimulant and part amphetamine, the effects of it are close to those of cocaine and MDMA. In the user, the drug creates feelings of confidence and euphoria, as well as happiness and empathy towards those around them. Generally taken in the form of capsules or powder that can be snorted, the effects of Mephedrone usually last for about 2 to 3 hours. While little is known about the long term impacts of Mephedrone since it is still a relatively new drug, it is considered quite physically and psychologically addictive because of its similarity to other drugs. Since withdrawal from Mephedrone can lead to serious crashes, this often causes the user to want to take more of the drug. As a tolerance develops, the body is more likely to overheat due to overstimulation, which can lead to serious issues with the heart and the nervous system, as well as heart attack and stroke.

Treatment Of Mephedrone Addiction



Since Mephedrone can become a serious problem when the user builds up a tolerance and needs to constantly maintain the high, it is a good idea for the user to go to a supervised detox centre during withdrawal to more adequately deal with the side effects. Following a detox, the user should partake in a rehabilitation program to deal with the psychological aspect of the addiction. However, before seeking any kind of treatment, the user should consult with their doctor to discuss the appropriate course of action since stopping the drug altogether could be dangerous. Because Mephedrone is often used in conjunction with other substances, the user may also experience withdrawal from other substances at the same time. Withdrawal symptoms from the drug may include dizziness, fatigue, depression, insomnia and memory loss.

Post-Rehabilitation Of Mephedrone Addiction



After the physical and psychological issues associated with addiction are worked through, it's important for the user to have a support group and a counsellor who they can continue to rely on for support and guidance. The user should avoid hanging out in the same environment where they accessed the drug and with the friends associated with it, as this could lead back to lowered inhibitions and an eventual relapse. The issues behind the addiction should also be addressed, as this will help the user avoid issues with the drug in the future.
