What are the Steps to Recovery from Meth Addiction?
- Intervention and Detoxify
- Rehab, Therapy, and Counseling
- Aftercare Support
We offer numerous approaches to treating addiction. That way, we can find the most effective method for each patient.
Intervention for Meth Addiction
An intervention involves confronting the patient. Most of the time, active addicts are not willing to admit they have a problem.
If you feel confident, we can provide you with instructions on how to initiate the intervention.
Otherwise, we will happily take control of the situation.
Detoxifying and the Initial Intake Exam
As soon as the patient arrives, the detoxification process begins. Active addicts develop a dependency on their substance of choice. Methamphetamine targets the brain’s dopamine pathways. Consequently, when addicts quit using meth, their brain becomes imbalanced.
Meth Detox Process
- Evaluate the Patient
- Stabilize the Patient
- Process for Entry to Rehab
Throughout the detoxification process, users may present with several symptoms of withdrawal. These include the following and more.
Withdrawal Symptoms of Meth
- Tiredness and Fatigue
- Excessive Sleeping
- Inability to Sleep
- Moodiness and Irritability
- Sadness and Depression
- Thoughts of Suicide
- Sweating and Tremors
After successful completion, patients may then begin treatment and our inpatient program. These programs utilize cutting-edge science to provide a client with the care they need.
Inpatient Treatment Programs
Our inpatient programs provide addicts with a world-class facility. They live and learn on the property for the duration of their treatment. By the end, they will learn new coping skills and how to overcome temptation.
- 30 to 90 Day Program With 24/7 Support: Each client who enters our program has an initial recovery timeline issued to them. These vary from one to three months, during which time patients have access to medical support around the clock.
- Individual and Group Counseling: Every day, individuals will attend several counseling sessions. The majority of these will be individual counseling sessions. They work to identify the root cause of their problem. Group counseling sessions are also incorporated to provide addicts with a chance to build a support network out of their peers.
- We Even Offer Holistic Treatments: In addition to our inpatient and outpatient programs, we also have holistic treatments. Not all of these will work equally well for each patient. Our team will work with you to determine which holistic treatments are the most effective.
Outpatient Treatment Programs
Outpatient programs are available for addicts who would like a treatment but do not want to live at our facility. Three different levels are available. Each one provides an extra level of restriction.
- Partial Hospitalization: Partial hospitalization is the most restrictive Outpatient treatment program. You must attend five days a week for 8 hours at a time.
- Intensive Outpatient: Intensive outpatient programs must be treated three days a week for 6 hours at a time. Patients can then go back home.
- General Outpatient: Our general outpatient program is primarily for recovered addicts. These programs only require people to attend twice a week for a two-hour session each time.
Families can play a massive role in supporting someone’s recovery from addiction. Family members have the benefit of being a part of your life once you leave treatment. Family therapy is beneficial after discharge. Our family program will help you learn the skills you need to hold loved ones accountable after visiting rehab.
First Responder Wellness Programs
First responders are an essential part of our society. Unfortunately, the jobs they do place them under immense mental strain. Consequently, first responders display higher rates of addiction than the general population. To support them, we’ve created a first responder wellness program. These programs teach first responders additional skills that will be helpful when they are on the job.
Typical Meth Addiction Medications
Methamphetamine produces physical dependence in chronic users. Consequently, removing the substance from the body tends to put users into a state of withdrawal. The following medications do not eliminate withdrawal. However, they can help reduce the severity of symptoms.
- Buproprion: Is used as an antidepressant. It has some stimulant properties. Thus, it can help to alleviate depression and moodiness during withdrawal.
- Naltrexone: This medication usually treats opiate addicts. However, preliminary research indicates the potential for use in the treatment of meth addiction as well.
- Mirtazapine: This is another antidepressant medication. It seems to help users fall asleep more easily. Plus, it does not have any additional addiction potential.
Ongoing Treatment and Relapse Prevention
Graduating from rehab is not the end of the battle. If you complete rehab, you deserve recognition. It is not easy to get through the first steps of recovery. Even people who complete inpatient programs relapse occasionally. As long as you are alive, recovery is an ongoing process. For this reason, we provide continuing support. Our aftercare programs assist patients to transition back to everyday living.
- 12-Step Treatment Programs: Twelve-step programs are the gold standard of ongoing support in the addiction community. These programs first became a standard alcoholism treatment.
- Sober Living Arrangements: Sometimes, individuals struggle to maintain sobriety when they live alone. Sober living homes could offer a solution. If you believe that you need additional support, talk to us. We might recommend you to a sober living home for aftercare support.
- Extended Outpatient Therapy: Many of our patients continue to receive ongoing therapy in the form of outpatient counseling. These sessions will work best for people who complete one of our other programs.
Tips to Prevent Meth Addiction Relapse
Overcoming addiction is an impressive feat. Once you are no longer an active addict, you must focus on relapse prevention as you made a recovery. The following tips should help.
- Move to a New Area: If possible, move to a new area. By changing locations, you eliminate the possibility of most temptations.
- Cut Out Old Influences: Even people that you have known for many years can be bad influences. Former addicts recommend cutting out old relationships that involved your substance of choice.
- Find New Ways to Pass the Time: Addiction is partly a habit. To truly overcome addiction, you need to find new ways to pass the time. Try out a variety of hobbies and see what sticks.
