Deciding to get treatment for meth addiction is a big step but arguably the most important. If you or a loved one has a problem with meth abuse, a personalized meth rehab treatment plan at a professional rehab facility is the best way to overcome addiction. These plans include the necessary steps to recovery like detox, therapy and counseling.
Deciding on Meth Treatment
Meth is a dangerous drug. It can be addictive in as little as one dose. As a result, any meth use outside a doctor’s prescription is considered abuse. If you’re suffering from meth abuse, you probably know how destructive the drug can be. You’ve probably realized you need help to break meth’s addictive cycle and live clean.
Unfortunately, for your loved ones, it may not be so simple. They may not have realized they need help yet. They may also be keeping their addiction a secret from their loved ones. The following signs could suggest they’re suffering from meth abuse:
- Trouble at school or work
- Giving up passions or hobbies for meth
- Unexplained financial problems
- Declining health like losing weight and teeth
- Unusual sleep patterns
Meth is very addictive. Quitting meth is hard and involves withdrawals. As a result, a treatment plan will most likely include detox. Here you can stop using meth in a supervised environment. This way you can work through the withdrawals in a safe and comfortable environment. Your body will get used to life without meth. After detox you can start your treatment plan with a clean and healthy mind.
Inpatient or Outpatient Meth Treatment
After detox, your meth treatment plan will include long-term treatment. This could be inpatient, or residential, treatment, where you live at the rehab facility and focus all your time on recovery. It could also be outpatient treatment where you continue with your day-to-day life but come to the facility at scheduled times for counseling and therapy.
Your treatment professionals will help you decide on the best choice for you. Inpatient treatment is generally more effective. It provides a dedicated environment with no distractions and constant support. However, some people may have commitments that don’t allow for this. Outpatient is an option that lets them keep up with their responsibilities while still going through the steps of treatment.
Counseling and Therapy for Meth Addiction
Whether inpatient or outpatient, treatment will use scientifically proven methods to help you fight your meth addiction. This mostly involves counseling and therapy. For example, cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) teaches you to recognize triggers and destructive thinking. By mastering your thoughts and emotions, you can break the cycle of addiction.
In treatment, counseling and therapy is usually divided between both group and personal sessions. In group sessions, you get support from other victims of drug abuse. Together, you recognize patterns and work through problems. In personal sessions, you’ll meet with a professional counselor. They can give you the expert advice and tools you need to achieve recovery.
