What is Meth Addiction?
Methamphetamine (meth) stimulates the central nervous system, giving users increased focus and decreased appetite. Many individuals develop a meth addiction after using other types of amphetamine drugs, which are often prescribed for individuals with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). However, a person who is prone to chronic meth use because of the euphoric rush of dopamine can easily fall victim to addiction. When used recreationally, it is snorted, smoked, or injected as crystal meth.
Over time, a person will start to develop meth tolerance, which means they will seek out larger and more frequent doses of meth to experience the same high as before. This puts those suffering from meth addiction at a higher risk for overdose. A person should consider substance abuse treatment for their methamphetamine addiction right away, as the risk of overdose and negative mental and physical side effects remains severe.
What to Expect in Meth Addiction Treatment
As with other drug abuse recovery programs, our meth addiction treatment at Harmony Outpatient involves a combination of medical detox and mental health services. We can help you determine which treatment programs are best for you based on your need for relapse prevention and mental health support.
Medically Supervised Detox
Long-term meth abuse results in a person developing both a physical and emotional dependence on meth. The withdrawal symptoms from this type of substance abuse are usually milder than from alcohol or opioids, but stopping your drug abuse alone can still result in seizures, suicidal thoughts, and other negative withdrawal symptoms that should be monitored by a professional.
For this reason, the first step of your meth addiction treatment is medical detox. Our staff of addiction professionals will manage your withdrawal symptoms as your body breaks its chemical dependence on meth. This decreases pain and discomfort associated with withdrawal symptoms and helps decrease the risk for relapse.
Behavioral Therapies for Mental Health
Meth treatment at our facility also includes a combination of behavioral therapy and life skills education to help an individual maintain long-term sobriety. Through various therapy options, we help you address the cause of your addiction and assist you in developing healthy coping skills in place of drug abuse in the future.
All of our behavioral therapies take place through our specialized outpatient programs. Depending on your level of care, you will attend therapy three to five days a week and return to your own home at night to sleep, all while receiving the right level of support for overcoming addiction once and for all. While detox remains an important part of overcoming meth addiction, behavioral therapies help individuals get to the root cause of addiction for sobriety that lasts.
