Methamphetamine Addiction Treatment
Methamphetamine Addiction Treatment at Promises
Meth can wreak havoc on the body and mind. When meth is abused, the body quickly becomes dependent on it. Methamphetamine users build up a tolerance to the drug’s effects. They need increasing amounts to get the same effects. Methamphetamine dependence is swift and severe. Many users feel “hooked” after just one use.
Promises can help people who abuse methamphetamine. Our drug addiction treatment and rehab program is effective and compassionate. Mental health professionals at our addiction treatment centers have years of experience and a passion for helping others. Call us to learn more about our drug rehab: 844-876-5568
Inpatient meth rehab begins repairing the physical and emotional effects of meth abuse. We begin by making an accurate diagnosis. Once we’ve assessed your physical and mental health, treatments for methamphetamine addiction can begin.
Medical Detox in Drug Rehab
Detox from drugs and alcohol may be required for methamphetamine abusers. Drug detox is especially important if other substance use disorders are also present. These may include alcohol abuse, heroin addiction, prescription drug misuse or crack cocaine abuse.
Don’t let the fear of drug detox prevent you from attending drug rehab. Our medical team makes sure you’re as comfortable as possible during this period. We use research-backed medications and other comfort measures to ease withdrawal symptoms.
Once you’ve safely eliminated drugs from your system, we’ll create a comprehensive treatment plan. Our addiction treatment program staff will carefully attend to your physical and emotional wellness.
Dual Diagnosis Treatment
About half of people with substance use disorders also have mental health disorders. This is known as a dual diagnosis. Sometimes meth is abused in an attempt to self-medicate symptoms of mental health disorders. Research finds depression and anxiety fuel drug addiction for many people who abuse methamphetamine. It also shows methamphetamine abuse can bring on symptoms of psychotic disorders.
The psychiatric team at our drug rehab center will assess you for any co-occurring disorders. Prescription drugs like antidepressants or antipsychotics are sometimes necessary to manage mental health symptoms. We’ll meet with you regularly to monitor improvements and adjust dosage as needed. You’ll learn to manage psychiatric symptoms so you can live a more enjoyable life.
Inpatient Meth Treatment Options
Inpatient treatment can help you overcome meth dependency. Research has shown the following treatments for methamphetamine addiction as particularly effective:
You’ll work with a primary therapist on issues that trigger substance abuse. One-on-one therapy helps you address what’s fueling abuse of drugs and alcohol. Our therapists are trained in approaches proven effective in drug addiction treatment such as cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT). In a safe, trusting space, you can explore difficulties like:
- PTSD and complex trauma
- Challenging relationships
- Poor self-worth
- Compulsive behaviors
- Unhealthy thinking
- Substance abuse triggers
Individual therapy is also a place to work on healthy coping skills and life goals.
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) identifies situations likely to result in drug use. The CBT therapist then gradually helps you change thoughts and actions in those situations. With new ways of thinking and healthier coping skills, drug use becomes a less attractive option. Cognitive behavioral therapy seeks to modify internal cues, external triggers and actions that support drug use.
Contingency management is another form of behavioral therapy to treat meth addiction. Contingency management uses positive reinforcement to encourage recovering meth addicts to stay sober and active in the treatment process. Researchers at the National Institute on Drug Abuse have verified the effectiveness of a contingency-based approach to crystal meth addiction treatment. This approach is called Motivational Incentives for Enhancing Drug Abuse Recovery (MIEDAR).
Sharing with peers that have similar issues can be transforming. You’ll feel less alone in your addiction. You may see yourself in others. This can help you find solutions to your problems. With the help of a group therapy leader, you’ll learn healthier communication skills. Sometimes you’ll process emotions and issues in group. Other times, you’ll learn about addiction topics and practice relapse prevention skills.
Experiential Treatment Options
Inpatient rehab is engaging and full of activities. In addition to traditional therapies like individual and group therapy we have alternative treatments for meth addiction. This way you can recover from physical and emotional wounds in different ways. Some experiential treatment options may include:
- Mindfulness practices
- Equine therapy
- EMDR trauma therapy
Continuing Care for Substance Use Disorders
Recovery from drug and alcohol abuse is a lifelong process. But we think you’ll find it’s well worth it. You’ll continue working on sobriety once you leave drug rehab. We’ll help you by developing a continuing care plan with resources to help you succeed. Your continuing care plan may include:
- Appointments with physicians and therapists
- 12-step programs or alternatives to 12-step programs like Refuge Recovery and SMART Recovery
- Step-down treatment like outpatient rehab
- Sober-living residences
- Family therapy
