Meth and other addictive substances wreak havoc on your body and your brain. There are three main ways to characterize substance abuse: chronic, progressive, and fatal. Substance abuse is considered chronic because it will continue if help or intervention is not sought. Substance abuse problems become progressively worse over time, and they can become fatal if left untreated.
