Methamphetamine, or meth, is a highly addictive stimulant drug that has become increasingly popular among Indiana residents. 1 According to recent findings from the National Survey on Drug Use and Health, the prevalence of meth use in Indiana is about 50% higher than the national average, with approximately 1 in 116 Indiana residents aged 12 or older reporting the use of meth in the past year. 2 Meth is most common among young adults, with 1 in 56 Hoosiers between the ages of 18 and 25 reporting past-year use.
The use of meth has also become an area of concern for Indiana’s student population. Results of the most recent Indiana College Substance Use Survey determined that 1 in 333 college students in Indiana used meth in the past month, with nearly half of the students who used meth reporting that they initiated use after entering college. 3 Findings from High School Youth Risk Behavior Surveillance System, a national survey of high school students conducted by Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, indicate that 1 in 35 Indiana high school students have tried meth at least one time during their lifetime. 4
Admissions data indicate that meth is the most widely abused drug among individuals seeking addiction treatment in Indiana. The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration reports that 6,182 Indiana residents received treatment for meth addiction in 2019, accounting for nearly one-quarter of all admissions to Indiana rehab centers. 5

Detox is a critical step in meth addiction recovery that must be completed prior to the start of any formal rehab treatment. During the natural detox process, the body rids itself of all harmful substances and prepares the mind for rehabilitation. Detox is often the most difficult part of the recovery process due to the extreme pain and discomfort that are often experienced as the brain adjusts to the absence of meth. Symptoms of meth withdrawal usually begin to appear within 24 hours of the last dose and may include: 6
The medical detox program at Landmark Recovery of Indianapolis allows you to safely detox from meth under the supervision of doctors and nurses. Our experienced team of clinical specialists provide around-the-clock care and support to ensure that you remain comfortable throughout the entire withdrawal process. You will also be closely monitored for any signs of dangerous complications that may arise during meth withdrawal, including hallucinations, delusions, and severe depression that can lead to thoughts of suicide. 6
Although the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has not yet approved any medications for meth withdrawal, we may administer certain drugs that are able to effectively treat specific symptoms of withdrawal. For example, diphenhydramine (Benadryl) may be given at bedtime to individuals who are experiencing insomnia and antidepressants can be prescribed for the treatment of severe depression that often accompanies meth withdrawal. 7
It can be challenging for people recovering from meth addiction to avoid relapse without further intervention outside of detox. After you complete your meth detox program at Landmark Recovery, you will have the opportunity immediately transition into a personalized meth treatment program. While engaging in proven therapies such as cognitive behavioral therapy, contingency management therapy, motivational interviewing, and motivational incentives, you will work closely with a dedicated counselor to identify and change the underlying behaviors responsible for your meth addiction. 8 You will also develop new, healthy thought patterns and learn effective ways to cope with the triggers and stressful situations that often lead to relapse.
