Methamphetamine or meth is one of the most abused psychostimulants in the United States. The drug, which is chemically similar to medical amphetamines, acts as a stimulant on the central nervous system, causing wakefulness, sensations of power and control, and euphoria. An estimated 964,000 people struggle with methamphetamine use disorder, resulting in health problems, damage to social relationships and lives, and death. Meth abuse can be devastating to the abuser and to those closest to them.
