Meth Addiction Treatment for Men
Methamphetamine, more commonly known as meth, is an addictive substance which impacts more than one million people per year in the United States. Effective meth treatment involves taking a comprehensive approach to recovery, addressing all areas contributing to addiction and addictive behavior. These therapies include cognitive-behavioral therapy, contingency management, individual and group therapy.
Continued use of meth leads to changes in brain chemistry that result in devastating physical and mental consequences. Side effects that come with meth addiction include confusion, violence, anxiety, hallucinations, psychosis, paranoia, delusions, skin sores, malnutrition, heart failure, memory loss, and cognitive and motor impairments.
Users turn to meth for its euphoric properties, often taking continuous doses to extend a high as long as possible. This increases risk of drug overdose and leads to continual dependence on the drug. Addiction may worsen to the point that obtaining and using meth become the goals around which the individual’s life revolves.
Effective meth treatment differs from one individual to another, accounting for co-occurring disorders or addictions, underlying mental or emotional trauma, the length of use, and more.
