Dating a crystal meth addict
If you're romantically involved with a current or former drug addict, just know it's not all bad.
Help your family member get back on track in the most efficient and effective way possible: a comprehensive, evidence-based crystal meth addiction treatment program.
You constantly have to be wondering if the person you love has relapsed. Their bond with drugs will be stronger than their bond with you, because drugs are easier.
What is worse is you'll also have to consider how you'll deal with relapse if it happens. Even the best relationships are sometimes messy and chaotic, but drugs are an immediate escape and a quick way to temporary nirvana. Some addicts realize that they've given up the truly important things in their life, and work as hard as they can not to mess them up again.
Some days are better than others, but the temptation to use drugs is a strong force that can set back years of progress.
As an addict's significant other, you take on that anxiety and worry.
