Methamphetamine Addiction and Treatment
The premier Methamphetamine addiction recovery program at Chapters Capistrano in California specializes in highly personalized treatment plans for addicts. No individual is affected by Methamphetamine addiction the same so no treatment plan should be identical. We pledge to guide you back toward a drug-free life!
Because highly addictive, Methamphetamines are only legally taken when prescribed by a medical profession. These psycho-stimulants alter the body’s central nervous system, and are often used to help ADHD and some instances of obesity. The drugs increase concentration, alertness, and energy level. However, when taken recreationally, Methamphetamines are highly dangerous, even fatal. Abusers are known to use the drugs by injection, insufflation, smoking, and suppository, and increase doses to combat tolerance when trying to attain the desired sense of euphoria.
Effects of Methamphetamine Use
When chronically abused, side effects may include arrhythmias, insomnia, tachycardia, and heart attack. Long-term, an addict may experience anxiety, depression, violent behavior, suicide, heart disease, and, for a significant percentage, schizophrenia-like psychosis. In addition to the physical effects, an addict’s mental health, relationships with family and friends, and professional life will all be affected.
Methamphetamine Withdrawal Doesn’t Have to be Painful
The Chapters Capistrano drug and alcohol rehab center recognizes how uncomfortable withdrawal from Methamphetamine addiction can be and how that fear often makes people avoid rehabilitation. We use a drug-specific detox that is not only the safest but also most traditional detoxification process. The addict takes mild prescription medication until the body is physically stabilized to lessen withdrawal symptoms and the risk of seizure.
