Methamphetamine Addiction Recovery

Methamphetamine (meth) addiction is growing fast in popularity among drug users. Some people can become hooked during the first use.

People react differently to the drug because everyone’s nervous systems don’t react the same way. Meth alters brain chemicals, raising dopamine levels, making a person feel good, but damages the receptors to dopamine which causes violent outbursts, severe depression and chronic anger.

Meth addiction is difficult to overcome but it’s not impossible. We can assist in finding you the treatment that will help turn your life and health around.

Methamphetamine Addiction Treatment

Our Meth Addiction Treatment Action Plan

Methamphetamine addiction is quickly becoming an overpowering epidemic throughout the world. Although most methamphetamine products available today are manufactured in foreign super-labs, meth is also produced in small home-based labs and mobile labs as well. Methamphetamine shares many of the same characteristics as amphetamines, which are highly controlled substances available only by prescription due to their addictive properties.

Methamphetamine comes in a number of forms, and is often disolved in water or alcohol. It is abused orally, intraveiniously, by smoking, and by snortimg the drug. Understanding what Meth is will help you realize why a proper methamphetamine addiction treatment and recovery plan is so important.

What Makes Meth so Addictive?

Some people might use meth occasionally for an extended period of time without showing severe symptoms of addiction, while others may become addicted to the drug after thier first use. The reason for this is that each individual is unique in the way that his or her brain and nervous system produces and receives certain chemicals and signals.

Methamphetamines alter the chemicals in a user’s brain, blocking the release of dopamine while increasing its production, which causes a “build-up.” Since dopamine is the “feel good” chemical of the human brain, this build-up results in feelings of euphoria, extreme energy levels, and increased motivation.

Meth can cause severe damage to the dopamine receptors in the brain, often causing extreme depression, anger, and even violent tendancies. Depending on the overall health of the person, the amount of use, and the length of time the drug was abused, these dopamine receptors may take months or even years to repair themselves. In some cases, they are never healed.

This can often mean that methamphetamine addiction treatment can be extremely difficult for many individuals, and methamphetamine addiction recovery terms can vary greatly.

The availability of the chemicals that are used to produce methamphetamines contributes significantly as well to the ease at which many people become exposed, and later addicted. Chemicals such as cold medications, drain cleaners, and other harmful ingredients that are found in local discount stores are combined to create the street drug.

In addition to the ease at which methamphetamine ingredients are accessed, the drug can be manufactured fairly simply and in small quarters as well. While some people choose to “cook” in their homes, many rent motel rooms, recreational vehicles, and even use less populated country areas to manufacture the drug, often leaving their trash and other remnants behind to contaminate these areas.

What are the Side Effects of Methamphetamine Use?

Individuals who continue to use methamphetamines cause extensive damage to their brains, nervous systems, hair, teeth, skin, and other bodily organs. Meth can cause extreme weight loss, and often an appearance of malnutrition. In addition, many people who use meth repeatedly suffer from extreme mood disorders such as depression, anger, and chronic fatigue.

The need for a meth “fix” can eventually take over the lives of not only those who become addicted, but of friends and family members as well. Meth addiction often damages relationships, employment and employability, and even daily living skills as the need for that feeling of euphoria becomes nearly unbearable.

Methamphetamine Addiction Treatment

Although treatment can be extremely difficult and time consuming, there are a number of methods available that have proven to be successful in obtaining methamphetamine addiction recovery. One method that seems to be most effective is CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy). Other methods of treatment include the use of anti-depressant medications, anti-anxiety medications, or a combination of both.

CBT therapy is a specialized form of treatment that is designed to assist individuals in managing cravings, changing life patterns, and how to avoid situations that might trigger cravings or exposure to the drug. Some individuals also receive vocational training, like skills training, and other types of therapy in addition to the above methods.

Methamphetamine Addiction Recovery

Depending on the intensity of the addiction, individuals who are going through meth detox often suffer from a number of severe, and even painful reactions. Convulsions, sweats, nausea, extreme depression, anxiety, or irritability may also occur. Some people also suffer from insomnia, hunger, and intense drug cravings, confusion, and memory loss.

After approximately two weeks, most of the “first stage” withdrawal symptoms disappear. Although these reactions seem intense, they are not medically harmful, and therefore do not need medical treatment or inpatient supervision.

After about 45 days, many people seem to hit a “wall”. During this period, their depression can seem nearly unbearable. It is very important for friends, family members, and caregivers to show support and encouragement as the individual progresses through the journey through methamphetamine addiction recovery.

Methamphetamine addiction is not an easy obstacle to overcome, but it can be done. With the proper combination of therapy, medication, education, and emotional support, people who suffer from meth addiction can look forward to a brighter future.

“I have heard it said that when you are addicted to meth, there is no recovery. Let me tell you that I am living proof that this is a lie. I was addicted to meth from the time I was 16 until I was 21, but when I decided I wanted to quit, I called TAP.

They helped me find a place that would help me get through my physical withdrawals through detox and then rehab. They have even helped me with support groups after my treatment program was over.

I don’t know where I would be today if it weren’t for TAP and the help they have continued to give me.”TB, POLSON, MT
