Cat Addiction

Cat addiction is growing in South Africa – Are you or someone you know suffering from Cat Addiction? Call us today for free advice or contact us below.

Methcathinone also known as Methedrone or Cat is one of the most commonly used illicit drugs in South Africa. Cat was legal in large areas of the world up until a few years ago. During this time is availability grew tremendously as did its use.

What is Cat?

Mephedrone, also known as 4-methylmethcathinone (4-MMC) or 4-methylephedrone, is a synthetic stimulant drug of the amphetamine and cathinone classes. Slang names include drone and MCAT. It is reportedly manufactured in China and is chemically similar to the cathinone compounds found in the khat plant of eastern Africa. It comes in the form of tablets or a powder, which users can swallow, snort or inject, producing similar effects to MDMA, amphetamines and cocaine.

Other names for “cat” include Methedrone, Methcatinone, Drone, M-Kat, Ghetto Coke, Star Speed and Kat to name a few. Being one of the most widely available drugs (legally) for such a lengthy period of time caused allot of misconceptions about it and its effects.

Cat Addiction in South Africa

South Africa is known as one of the drug capitals of the world largely due to its strategic shipping positioning. Cat use is spread right across South Africa and is the most common drug we at Home Detox South Africa deal with. Cat is mainly produced in homemade labs producing a cheap but highly dangerous and toxic drug. It is often sold in R10 straws making it affordable and very available for all levels of society.

Common side effects of Cat use are insomnia, heightened senses, paranoia and even induced psychosis. Long term side effects are largely unknown as the drug has not been in circulation long enough to carry out long term studies.

Withdrawal symptoms vary from person to person depending on several factors (time using, general health etc) but in some cases people suffer stomach cramps, hallucinations and severe depression after long term usage. Call us today for help with cat addiction on 087 550 1938 or mail
