Getting Help for Meth Addiction
Meth is an addictive stimulant responsible for people as young as 15 years of age forming addiction and needing rehabilitation treatment. It is addictive because it releases large amounts of dopamine with only one use. Dopamine is a chemical found in the brain and is known to create sensations of pleasure and relaxation, but when you take Meth, it causes an intense rush of dopamine that leaves individuals wanting more. The more the drug is used, the more you build tolerance. This means increasing the amount of the drug with each use to reach the same intensity of high, which also heightens one’s risk of overdosing.
A significant problem for Meth users is that it is not as expensive as other illicit or street drugs, making it easier for many people to maintain their substance abuse.
When you stop taking Meth, there is a sudden loss of pleasure, and you could experience severe depression, anxiety, and lethargy. It increases heart rate and blood pressure that may lead to a stroke. It can create aggression, tremors, and irritability. You may be unable to sleep, stay up for days, and feel that you need to use Meth to feel normal or happy again. But Meth doesn’t create true or accurate happiness. It mimics a natural dopamine-producing imbalance in the body. When you stop taking Meth, you go through uncomfortable withdrawal, placing you at greater risk of taking dangerously high doses. It is so dangerous that some people can experience psychosis months after using the substance. Most alarming is how Meth use can cause brain damage when used over a long-term period.
It is essential to understand that it is not impossible to overcome meth addiction. It can be achieved, but it requires the brave step to seek professional rehabilitation and addiction treatment. With access to unconditional support and a non-judgmental approach, you can stop Meth from negatively affecting your present and future.
How we Treat Meth Addiction
To effectively treat meth addiction, it starts with detox. Only once the substance is no longer active in the body can you truly begin your journey to recovery. At United Recovery, we provide complete detox programs for those struggling with meth addiction. Our treatment plan starts at the medical facility, where our experienced clinical staff oversees your meth detox.
The reason that detox in an inpatient facility is necessary is because of withdrawal. Withdrawal symptoms from Meth include agitation, fatigue, sleepiness, intense cravings for the substance, and a high risk of psychosis. There is also the risk of individuals causing self-harm while under psychological distress owing to the influence of Meth.
Our detox program can support you with 24-hour medical care, including medication to ease your symptoms. Once detox is complete, you’ll enter rehabilitation to receive structured treatment by our licensed therapists. Our rehab program will introduce you to positive coping skills, relapse prevention, and steps to maintain your sobriety during your treatment.
Meth is also known as ice, speed, crystal, and glass on the street. It is a highly addictive artificial stimulant meant to create euphoria when used. The drug is available in powder form and can be smoked, snorted, and injected, creating a rapid high. Meth is illegal because it is classified as a Schedule II drug according to the Controlled Substances Act. Because this drug abuse causes severe physical and psychological dependence with many unpleasant and life-threatening risks, it is illegal to purchase, use, or sell Meth.
Types of Programs
Our meth detox program is designed so that you will suffer the fewest withdrawal symptoms while cleansing your body from the traces of the drug use within a safe environment. For methamphetamine addiction, we have medical staff available 24/7 and monitoring all processes while you are undergoing the detoxification phase in your drug abuse recovery treatment.
