Meth addiction can lead to dangerous physical and psychological effects. Meth is incredibly addictive and can cause damage to an individual’s physical and mental health, relationships, finances, and employment status. However, if you’re struggling with meth addiction, it’s possible to take your life back from this disease. New Hampshire Detox Center offers a meth addiction treatment program that can help you rebuild your life. We offer support during drug and alcohol detox and beyond.
How Meth Addiction Develops
Meth is an illicit drug that can quickly lead to dependence. It acts as a stimulant on the brain and produces an intense high. The effects of meth use don’t last for long, and those who use meth will quickly seek out more in order to avoid the difficult emotional and physical symptoms that can accompany withdrawal. It’s common for those who are addicted to meth to use the drug for several days at a time before crashing down. This sustained use can lead to severe addiction that can make it difficult to stop using on your own.
Signs and Symptoms of Meth Addiction
All meth use is cause for concern. If you or a loved one is using meth, reach out to our treatment center today. Early intervention can help those who are using this dangerous substance avoid harmful consequences.
However, individuals using meth might try to hide their addiction from friends and family. If you’re concerned about a loved one, look for the following signs and symptoms that they might be struggling with meth addiction:
- Drug paraphernalia such as glass pipes, needles, or small spoons
- Extreme weight loss
- Erratic sleeping patterns
- Burns on the lips or fingers
- Sores on the skin
- Agitation, outbursts, or extreme mood swings
- Twitching or jerking movements
One common symptom of meth use is a sudden crash following a binge. Cravings, extreme fatigue, and depression can accompany this crash.
Our Approach to Meth Addiction Treatment
Healing from meth addiction first involves going through withdrawal in a medical detox center. We provide medical and emotional support for the early days of recovery. Many of those who attempt to detox on their own relapse during this time in order to feel relief from painful or uncomfortable withdrawal symptoms. However, at New Hampshire Detox Center, we provide a safe and comfortable environment for our clients.
Some of the services and therapies that we offer those in our meth addiction treatment program include:
- Cognitive-behavioral therapy – This evidence-based approach to treatment can help clients develop the healthy coping skills they need to avoid relapse.
- Trauma therapy – Many of those who struggle with addiction have experienced trauma in the past.
- Group therapy – Sessions with others in recovery can help clients build a strong network of support.
- Men’s and women’s treatment programs – We provide safe spaces where our clients can open up about the challenges they’ve faced.
We create personalized treatment programs for every individual in our care to help them meet their goals. Those struggling with meth addiction might also benefit from our extended residential treatment program, which offers a high level of support to clients with severe addictions.
