Owensboro Alcohol and Drug Rehab Listings
Two men were arrested near Owensboro, Kentucky for several drug charges. Police found a one-step crystal meth lab as well as a range of paraphernalia and the drug itself. It’s a problem that is increasing in Kentucky and across the country. Due to a new method of crystal meth manufacture, it’s easy for people to make the drug on the fly and, in most cases, more easily evade arrest.
This means that those who abuse the drug have ready access to the substance. They are never without crystal meth, which in turn means that crystal meth addiction is becoming an increasingly devastating problem in Owensboro and surrounding cities.
Crystal Meth Abuse Is Deadly
There are physical effects of crystal meth that can trigger the end for a number of users. A stimulant drug, it increases the heart rate and the breathing rate as well as the metabolism – in short, it kicks the body into overdrive. For some, this can mean cardiac arrest or seizure, which can turn into brain damage, coma or death. Patients increase their chances of overdosing on crystal meth or experiencing a negative medical emergency under the influence of the drug when they:
- Have an underlying medical condition
- Use other drugs as well, further taxing the body
- Use large amounts of crystal meth at one time
- Remain under the influence for long periods of time
