Meth addiction is extremely difficult to overcome, but it is not impossible. Long-term recovery from meth addiction can be difficult at first for new patients because of the severe physical dependence they have on the drug. 1
Meth affects the central nervous system by increasing the amount of natural chemical dopamine in the brain. 2 This short-term “high” usually peaks within 1 to 15 minutes and can last around 4 to 8 hours, or even longer. 3 Sometimes a person may engage in repeated, back-to-back doses to prolong the experience.
In 2017, NSDUH data reported that 14.7 million Americans (over 5% of the population) had tried meth at some point in their lives. Of this number, roughly 1.6 million had used meth in the previous year, and 964,000 met the criteria for meth use disorder. 4
Meth is incredibly dangerous and can be deadly for first-time, regular, and long-term users. It increases heart rate, breathing, and blood pressure; all of these increase the risk of overdose. 5 In 2020, the United States recorded the highest number of drug overdose deaths in its history, with methamphetamine and other psychostimulant overdoses growing by 34.8% from the previous year. 6
There are many other risks and side effects of meth that are not necessarily lethal. Physical health problems include weight loss, severe tooth decay, stroke, and damage to organs like the heart, liver, kidneys, and lungs. Mentally, meth use can cause anxiety, insomnia, and paranoia, not to mention permanently alter the brain, affecting a person’s memory, behavior, and mood. 7
Regular meth use or taking meth in high doses also can result in methamphetamine psychosis, a severe psychiatric reaction to the drug that resembles paranoid schizophrenia, with delusional thoughts, aggressive behavior, and hallucinating. 8
Landmark Recovery’s evidence-based, medically-assisted detox, and therapeutic approach are all designed to treat the underlying causes of your addiction and equip you with the tools and supportive community you need to re-enter and navigate the world – without meth.
Because we recognize that each patient’s addiction story is unique, your treatment plan will be personalized. Our programs include medical detox, residential treatment, intensive outpatient, and partial hospitalization.
The very first step toward recovering from meth addiction is medical detox. Our team will help you safely navigate detox with around-the-clock care and medical treatments to alleviate any severe withdrawal symptoms. But detox does not equal recovery or sobriety. At Landmark Recovery, we are also equipped to provide you with the most effective treatment for methamphetamine: behavioral therapy. We use a combination of behavioral therapies to help our patients recognize, avoid, and cope with situations that trigger their drug use.
Once you have completed rehab, you will continue to have access to our fully integrated alumni program and support network so that you can sustain your recovery with the community and accountability you need to achieve success.
