Methamphetamine Risks

The obvious risk of methamphetamine is the incredible destruction that the addiction can have on your life. However one of the major issues of the drug is not just applicable to those that physically use it. If your home, hotel room, motel room or even campervan has been used to manufacture methamphetamine, they could face serious health concerns, let alone the cost of having to decontaminate the area if this was found to be the case.

One of the often overlooked factors is that meth does not have to have been physically manufactured in an area for the area to have been contaminated. Someone smoking P in an area will contaminate it. While a one off occurrence will leave just minor residue, which in most cases can be dealt with by a professional methamphetamine cleaning company for a minimal cost, it is the build-up of the contamination over time that occurs through repeated use of the drug in a particular area that causes major issues.

One of the most disappointing factors that are now coming to light is that new homes are being contaminated as they are being built with some undesirable trade’s people having been caught smoking meth while they are building the house. This means that your newly built home could be making you and your family sick.

Here are some of the more common health risks:

  • Lack of ability to sleep or even rest
  • Hyper active behavior becoming a normal state
  • Severe allergic reactions
  • Migraines and headaches
  • Respiratory issues
  • Nausea and dizziness
  • Lack of ability to concentrate for long periods
  • Severely compromised immune system
  • Burns (in some cases rashes) to those areas body parts directly exposed to the contaminated areas
