My wife used meth with her friends from the age of 12 - 21. She's been clean for like, 20 years now but she seems to have some lack of social maturity and a pretty bad memory. Could these be from her meth use days?

Hey Michael - As it turns out... yes. Unfortunately, when people use drugs, especially for an extended period of time there are lifetime consequences that occur.

The long-term effects of using meth vary in everybody but my adult son has been clean for about 15 years. I saw most of his improvement within a year after getting clean but as he's getting older, I'm noticing that his memory isn't that great and I was also told by his addiction therapist that he's going to have an increased risk of Parkinson's disease. I'm just glad he got clean when he did or who knows how bad the damage would be by now! Glad to hear your wife made it through. Best of luck to you.
