When is it Time to Attend Rehab for Methamphetamine Abuse?
Methamphetamine is an incredibly toxic, addictive, and dangerous illegal drug. Methamphetamine causes the user to experience an intense, euphoric high characterized by high energy levels, a marked difference in sleep and appetite levels, and aggression and psychosis. Over one million people in the United States will abuse methamphetamine in a given year. Addiction to meth is incredibly harsh on the user’s body. Methamphetamine overdose rates doubled between the years 2010 to 2014.
Fortunately, help is available for people addicted to methamphetamine. Supportive counselors and qualified doctors in detox centers and treatment facilities can help users achieve lifelong sobriety and reverse the health consequences of long-term meth abuse.
What are the health risks associated with long-term meth abuse?
Methamphetamine is comprised of harsh chemical agents which rot users teeth, gums, soft tissues, their skin, and are incredibly dangerous for the lungs and cardiovascular system. When coming down off a high, methamphetamine abusers will pick at their skin, causing lesions which can become infected. Furthermore, meth causes users to stop sleeping and eating. They can develop psychosis and nutritional deficiencies.
Is detox recommended for meth addiction and abuse?
Yes. Methamphetamine cessation can trigger psychotic episodes and unpleasant, painful physical and mental symptoms. Also, users who are trying to quit will experience intense cravings for the drug. In a detox facility, people recovering from meth addiction are kept safe from outside influence which can cause them to relapse. Doctors are also on-call to prescribe safe medications to alleviate some of the symptoms of methamphetamine withdrawal.
What can loved ones do to help someone during recovery from methamphetamine
Support for people in recovery is critical to achieving sobriety and reducing relapse rates. Without help, patients are at increased risk of relapsing, and if they do relapse without family and friend’s support, they can quickly spiral back down into drug addiction. People with the disease of addiction need to know they are cared for and supported or else they are at-risk of filling an emotional void with substances.
What does it take to achieve lifelong sobriety from meth abuse and addiction?
It takes vigilance, a caring support network, and availability of the necessary resources to achieve and maintain lifelong sobriety. A rehab center offers those in recovery the resources and support they need to develop the tools to stay sober. With treatment, ongoing maintenance plans tailored to the individual are put in place to prevent relapse.
What can I bring to a treatment center for methamphetamine addiction?
Patients should bring the following:
- A list of current medications
- Doctor’s contact information
- A list of supportive family and friends contact information
- A week’s worth of comfortable clothes
- Toiletries that are alcohol-free
- Insurance and identification cards
- A small amount of cash
Despite the devastation of methamphetamine addiction, people can get sober with the right help and support. Don’t hesitate to contact a qualified treatment center today and begin the journey toward sobriety and healing.
