We are here helping addicts achieve drug-free lives!
A highly addictive psycho-stimulant that affects the central nervous system, Methamphetamines are used medicinally to treat ADHD and some instances of obesity. When used medically, usage can increase concentration, alertness, and energy level. However, when used recreationally, administered by injection, insufflation, smoking, and suppository, Methamphetamines are typically taken in higher doses to create a sense of euphoria, and are therefore dangerous.
Effects of Methamphetamine Use
Abusing Methamphetamines chronically can cause tachycardia, arrhythmias, insomnia, and heart attack, and can be fatal. Some of the long-term withdrawal symptoms include anxiety, depression, heart disease, violent behavior, suicide, and, for a significant percentage, schizophrenia-like psychosis. Because of its highly addictive nature, rehabilitation from Methamphetamines can be very difficult. All aspects of the addict’s life may be affected, including physical and mental health, relationships with family and friends, and professional interactions.
Methamphetamine Withdrawal Doesn’t Have to be Painful
At Chapters Capistrano, we know sometimes addicts avoid rehabilitation due to the fear of discomfort brought on by Methamphetamine withdrawal. Our Methamphetamine rehab program uses the most traditional and safe form of withdrawal, a drug-specific detox. Prescribed mild prescription medication in tapering amounts until the body is physically stabilized, clients’ risk of seizure and withdrawal symptoms are reduced.
Chapters Capistrano understands that there are many challenges with Methamphetamine addiction recovery. Our personalized programs are effective at beating Methamphetamine addiction so you can live your life drug-free. Call our 24-hour helpline at 949-371-4198 today for more information!
