Amphetamines are More Common than Ever

In the latest report by the U.N. Office of Drugs and Crime, amphetamine-based drugs were found to be more common than ever and come in second in use to pot. One of the main reasons amphetamines, such as ecstasy and crystal meth, have become more common in use has a lot to do with how easily they are to make. Due to them being so much easier to make, manufacturers and dealers make and sell it cheaper, and more people are getting hooked.

This drug problem is worldwide and only seems to be getting worse. Even in Southeast Asia, the amount of methamphetamine pills seized almost tripled in one year from 93 million to a shocking 133 million. Medical labs have been raided more frequently in order for sellers and users to get more of the drugs they want. The saddest part of all of this is many people are turning to these drugs to find relief from their lives and think the high they get from these drugs will make them feel better when dealing with their daily struggles. But they are mistaken; most will end up in a drug treatment center, or worse, they will end up dead.

While users of this drug might be looking for some quick relief from reality, it is never the right way to go about getting help in dealing with multiple problems people go through in life. Through a drug treatment center, patients are able to get themselves off of being dependent on amphetamines and find a better way to cope with the stressors of day-to-day life. Drugs are never the answer and will only lead to a person’s life spiraling more out of control. There is help out there for those who need it so don’t hesitate when your life is on the line.
