Methamphetamines are a psycho-stimulant that affects the central nervous system and are highly addictive. Methamphetamines have been approved for medicinal use to treat ADHD and some instances of obesity.

Usage may affect all aspects of the addict’s life, including relationships with family and friends, physical and mental health, and business interactions.

Withdrawal Doesn’t Have To Be Painful

At Chapters Capistrano, we understand that most people are anxious about the idea of going through withdrawals and this keeps them using the drug. We recognize that withdrawal can be uncomfortable, but it doesn’t have to be if done properly.

Through the rehab program at Chapters, our process engages the most traditional and safe form of withdrawal from using, which is a drug-specific detox. Clients receive mild prescription medication under medical supervision that reduces the risk of seizure and eases withdrawal symptoms. These medications generally are prescribed in tapering amounts until the body is physically stabilized.

Chapters Capistrano recognizes the unique challenges presented by addiction and do their best to help everyone who comes through their doors.
