Methamphetamine Addiction Treatment

Methamphetamine Addiction and Treatment

sprout_fl_meth_treatmentOne of the most dangerous yet common illegal drugs abused in the US, methamphetamine that ruins lives. On the streets, meth is commonly known as Tweak, Speed, Tina, Crystal Meth, and Ice. The drug can be enticing to someone who is at an all time low and wants an immediate relief from the way they feel.

What Meth Does

Methamphetamine provides an intense rush that cannot easily be reproduced. The drug immensely increases the amount of dopamine (the happy chemical) and leaves you with a sudden feeling of euphoria. That intense feeling is very brief and, once it wears off, it leaves the user desperately craving and searching for their next high.

The Addiction

Once the user does get their next high, the cycle viciously repeats itself and the users soon find themselves in a deep, life-altering addiction. As the addiction spirals out of control, relationships break apart, jobs are at stake, and the user destroys everything in his or life that gets in the way of chasing their high.

The Damage

Not only does methamphetamine ruin a person’s life and cause insatiable cravings, but it also causes severe damage to a person’s body.

Here is a quick list of some of the adverse effects it has on your body and mind:

  • High blood pressure
  • Dangerously rapid heartbeat
  • Not enough oxygen to body tissues
  • Overactive thyroid
  • Glaucoma
  • Severe Anxiety
  • Insomnia
  • Psychosis, hallucinations, and delusions

Treatment

Ending an addiction to meth is something that requires serious self-discipline and a lot of help. The primary treatment options for treating a methamphetamine addiction include detox and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. The detox process can be overseen in an Intensive Outpatient Program and is the most difficult part of the rehab process.

Though necessary for recovery, detox alone does not solve an addiction. Our Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is used to train patients how to feel happiness again without the use of crystal meth. The withdrawal period can drive patients into a very serious depression, so we use this type of therapy to try and replace negative thoughts with positive ones and enable patients to find positive approaches to negative thoughts, behaviors, and life situations.

If you know someone addicted to methamphetamine, get help as soon as possible and call Sprout Health Florida today!
