Drug Addiction Facts

  • Methamphetamine addicted individuals often develop sores on their bodies because they scratch at imaginary bugs they believe are crawling under their skin.
  • Stimulant drugs such as crack and meth, can lead to delusional parasitosis; a mistaken belief they an user is infested with parasites also known as "coke bugs". These delusions are also often associated with high fevers and users often scratch themselves to the point of serious skin damage and bleeding.
