Meth Addiction Treatment
Making the decision to quit using meth is the most important step in the recovery process. After deciding to quit, it is essential to find the right treatment for a lasting recovery. People who try to quit alone are rarely able to fully recover.
A comprehensive approach to treatment has the highest potential for success.
Treatment is typically comprised of detox first, then inpatient rehab, and then and a transition to outpatient upon completion of inpatient rehab. Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is commonly used for recovering addicts in treatment, along with a multi-disciplinary approach, including behavioral therapy and support groups. Additional therapeutic modalities include motivational enhancement therapies, dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT), recreational therapy, art therapy, individual counseling, group therapy, psychoeducational therapy, family education, and family therapy.
There are numerous treatment centers across the nation that can help meth addicts on the road to recovery. Please call us now for help finding a treatment center.

Levels of Care and Therapy for Meth Addiction
Meth is one of the hardest drugs to overcome, especially for those who are shooting meth, and beating this addiction requires a strong support system. A professional rehabilitation program can provide a specialized approach to treating meth addiction, as well as any co-occurring mental disorders.
Inpatient Rehab for Meth Addiction
Inpatient rehabs provide an environment where people can regain a foothold on their life and decisions without the risk of relapse. These programs usually last between 30 and 90 days depending on the needs of each person. If more time in treatment is needed, some rehabs will extend the length of the program.
In meth rehab, therapists provide emotional support and help residents work through underlying problems that cause them to abuse drugs. They provide former users with the tools needed to confront cravings and make good choices.
Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is a method of therapy commonly used in many addiction treatment programs. CBT helps patients identify what triggers their drug cravings, as well as how to cope with them.
Cognitive behavioral therapy is one of the best ways to understand and manage the psychological effects of a meth addiction.
Other methods of therapy used in meth rehab include:
- One-on-one therapy
- Group counseling
- Family therapy
- Behavioral therapy
- Cognitive behavioral therapy
- Evaluation and treatment for co-occurring mental health disorders
- Medication management
- Addiction education
- Life skills training
- Vocational skills
- Dialectical behavioral therapy
- Relapse prevention education
One of the most important parts of ongoing treatment is outpatient treatment. There are many levels and types of outpatient treatment, so it is important for each recovering meth user to select the one that best meets their individual needs.
Support groups are one of the best methods of support for those in recovery. Narcotics Anonymous and Crystal Meth Anonymous are two of the most common support groups recovering meth addicts join. These organizations provide former meth users with a sense of camaraderie through support from others in recovery with whom they can relate.
These groups both center on 12-step programs that help recovering addicts work through their addiction one day at a time. These groups are free and useful for anyone trying to overcome a meth addiction. They also provide the ability to obtain a same gendered sponsor to work on the 12-steps with for ongoing relapse prevention and personal growth.
