Serving the Nation, based in the Pacific Northwest.
Over one million Americans abused meth within the past year, according to the National Survey on Drug Use and Health. Crystal meth use is a national problem, and American families are searching for a solution.
For people to start overcoming meth addiction though, they must first admit to having an addiction. They must then agree to receive crystal meth treatment. The loved ones of meth addicts must also be there to hold their addicted loved ones accountable.
But how can you even tell that a person has an addiction and needs crystal meth treatment? Well, look for the signs and ask the right questions.
An addiction is a multi-faceted problem that’s comprised of a number of significant mental and physical symptoms. From loneliness to low self-esteem, to issues connecting with others, too much is on the line to let an addiction go untreated.
If you or a loved one discover that you suffer from crystal meth addiction, the first step is realizing that you can accomplish crystal meth recovery. Many people have been where you are and have successfully overcome meth addiction, leading to a fulfilling life.
Although one of the first steps to overcoming meth addiction is realizing there is a problem, a support process must be in a place that’s customized to fit your unique needs. Any chemical addiction affects both your body and mind. As a result, an individual’s entire life starts to revolve around finding and using a particular substance.
Your first step may have been experimenting with crystal meth or moving on from meth to another substance, but eventually, your body became totally dependent upon meth.
Due to the profound, life-changing effects of crystal meth, addicts normally need around three months of professional treatment to recover permanently from the drug. Free by the Sea is ready to take you in for treatment if you’re ready to take the first step.
Pinpointing precisely when crystal meth use transforms into a full-blown addiction can be difficult. Although each case is somewhat different, there are some consistent signs of meth addiction.
The main sign is that the addict continues to use meth when there are noticeable and negative consequences for doing so. Often times this also means that the user is experiencing major issues with his or her personal relationships, career, family life, or physical health.
Each meth addict reacts differently to addiction. While every user may not display every sign, some of the most common signs of crystal meth addiction include:
Addiction to crystal meth is characterized by the individual focusing on seeking out and using meth at any cost. The typical signs of meth dependency are the following:
Crystal meth use can have a dramatic effect upon an individual very quickly, affecting that person both physically and mentally. Crystal meth dependency can affect those of all ages, races, genders, religions, and socioeconomic groups. Certain risk factors can raise one’s risk of becoming dependent, including the following:
These risk factors can boost the chances of a person becoming a meth addict. There is no one way to diagnose which person will become addicted though. Should you notice any of these warning signs in yourself or others, professional assistance should be sought out immediately.
No medication exists that can effectively treat a crystal meth addiction. Crystal meth is a very strong substance that creates very intense cravings during all stages of the withdrawal process. The withdrawal process of crystal meth is also very difficult. Still, a professional crystal meth treatment program can help an addict regain his or her life.
Our caring staff at Free by the Sea offers a multi-faceted inpatient program that treats addiction side effects. Our inpatient program also treats the root cause of meth addiction. Since crystal meth is highly addictive, withdrawal can be very difficult for the addict. The intense stimulant affects the mind and body during withdrawal.
Some people should start crystal meth treatment with medical detoxification. During detox, a medical team watches over the person until all remaining traces of crystal meth are gone from the body.
Family therapy is often recommended at this point, in addition to relapse prevention, personal counseling, and a variety of support and outpatient services. Family support is very important during this period of time to speed up the recovery process, intervention.
PLEASE NOTE: Free by the Sea DOES NOT provide crystal meth detox services. We recommend outside detox services and provide the recovery after the detox is complete.
