Treatment for Meth Addiction
Drug rehab is the best option for meth addiction because it’s notoriously hard to get sober alone. An intensive inpatient drug rehab program, beginning with drug detoxification, is recommended as a starting treatment for all substance abuse issues.
Detoxing is a crucial part of addiction treatment in which the person allows all of the substance to leave their system. With time, rest and fluids, all traces of meth will eventually leave the system. However, some will need medication-assisted treatment to help them withdraw safely. During this time, meth withdrawal symptoms will be at their worst. Another reason to use inpatient treatment is that it allows you the support necessary to become sober during an extremely difficult withdrawal process.
Withdrawal symptoms are different for everyone but may include:
- Feeling fatigued or excessively sleepy
- Episodes of jitteriness
- Increased appetite, with or without dry mouth
- Extreme meth cravings
- Paranoia, delusions or hallucinations
- Depression, with or without thoughts of suicide
- Agitation, irritation or feelings of anger
- Excessive sweating (including cold sweats)
- Red, itchy eyes
- Nausea and severe stomachache, with or without vomiting
An addiction specialist will work with you to find the best ways to cope with your withdrawal symptoms. Calming activities like yoga or meditation may be helpful alongside medical interventions.
