Methamphetamine Addiction Withdrawal

The first step to entering recovery is admitting you have a methamphetamine addiction. After coming to terms with your addiction, you must detoxify your body – “purging” all traces of the narcotic from your system. Addicts who have entered recovery before know that detox is often one of the most grueling parts of ones’ recovery journey. Depending on the severity of your addiction, the duration of substance abuse detox programs ranges from a week to several weeks. Our staff works around the clock at our medical detox center to help you manage your withdrawal symptoms comfortably. 

Attempting to quit methamphetamine at home without the care of medical professionals is highly risky. In some cases, methamphetamine withdrawal addictions can provide to be deadly. Some of the most common withdrawal side effects include:

  • Depression
  • Psychosis
  • Insomnia or hypersomnia
  • Paramonia (a.k.a nightmare disorder)
  • Fatigue
  • Irritability

Do You Need A Methamphetamine Addiction Treatment Program?

Methamphetamine – a synthetic psychostimulant – is a highly addictive drug that triggers a euphoric high. Furthermore, meth is widely available across the United States, making it easier to get hooked and feed your addiction. Methamphetamine comes in various forms, including a powder, base, or crystal.

 When you take meth, your body releases the feel-good hormone dopamine. Eventually, you develop a dependency because your brain shifts its natural equilibrium, making it ever so challenging to curb a methamphetamine addiction. We highly recommend substance abuse treatment if you use meth (even if you’re not a daily user). Experiencing the symptoms above when trying to stop meth indicates you have a severe methamphetamine addiction. This addiction could lead to serious side effects or even death in the worst-case scenario.

The Methamphetamine Addiction Treatment Recovery Process

Entering a substance abuse detox program is one of the first steps to methamphetamine addiction recovery. During detox, you’ll work with licensed medical professionals to ease your withdrawal symptoms using holistic and medicinal remedies. After detox, many recovering addicts find a sense of clarity and purpose that fuels their recovery journeys. 

Upon completing our methamphetamine detox program, individuals work with a licensed therapist and an on-staff psychiatrist to plan the next steps. Here at United Recovery Project, we take a holistic approach and tailor each luxury addiction treatment plan to meet our client’s needs. 

We offer various drug and alcohol addiction treatment programs, including:

After receiving methamphetamine addiction treatment, many recovering addicts live in a sober living home before transitioning to everyday life. Recovering addicts can put their newfound skills to use in sober living while making lifelong friends who share the same common goal. Here at United Recovery Project, we have two gender-specific sober living homes. These luxurious residences allow individuals to live independently while having a fallback plan in place.

Methamphetamine Addiction Therapy

There’s no one-size-fits-all approach to methamphetamine addiction treatment. We’re proud to offer a comprehensive selection of therapy options because we acknowledge that everyone heals differently.

  • Group therapy

  • Music therapy
  • Motivational therapy
  • Nutrition therapy
  • Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT)
  • Dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT)

Methamphetamine Addiction Alumni Program

Recovering from methamphetamine abuse is a lifelong journey; you’re not finished the second you leave our substance abuse program. Therefore, we highly encourage all recovering addicts to participate in our alumni program. In our alumni program, you’ll meet recovering addicts from all backgrounds.
