Report Does drug addiction (meth) have anything to do with TS in Tourette Syndrome and Tics Posted May 6, 2013 Okay, I am going to open myself up here and become vulnerable. I have not heard anyone talk on this subject since I have been researching TS, ADHD, OCD and anxiety and I am wondering if at all you have experienced some of the same, you might be comfortable sharing. My grandson’s father has been in prison 9 out of the 12 years of his life. All drug related charges. He has been involved with methamphetamine since he was 16, so obviously he used at the time my daughter got pregnant. She was not using but had used in the past. She remained sober until Austin was 18 months old and then took off one night and left me with him and basically did not resurface until she was arrested 4 years later. She has now celebrated 9 years in recovery and that is a great accomplishment for meth addicts as their recovery rate is very low. Have you ever had anyone or heard of anyone connect meth use with TS and/or the other disorders?
