Meth-specific Treatment Centers

Meth is one of the hardest drugs to overcome, 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. The following treatment centers offer treatment programs for meth users:

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
  • Biofeedback

Ongoing Treatment and Relapse Prevention Strategies

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.
