What is meth?

Methamphetamine (also called speed, crystal meth, crank, ice, or meth) is a potent stimulant drug that has become increasingly popular in Oklahoma. Although meth is usually imported from large foreign manufacturing sources, it can also be illicitly produced in local meth labs using simple ingredients that can be purchased at drug stores. 1 This highly addictive drug, which can be smoked, snorted, or injected, quickly hits the brain after use and causes the release of dopamine, norepinephrine, and serotonin. As these neurotransmitters flood the brain the user will feel increased energy, alertness, and euphoria. 2

Meth use quickly becomes habit-forming, putting even first-time users at a high risk for addiction. Over time users can become incapable of experiencing pleasure without the drug, creating a devastating dependence that can only be relieved through the use of more meth.
Long-term abuse has many negative consequences, including agitation, anxiety, paranoia, insomnia, mood disturbances, violent behavior, weight loss, skin sores, and severe tooth decay and tooth loss. 3 High doses of meth are extremely dangerous and may result in convulsions, cardiovascular problems, stroke, or death. 1 According to medical examiner reports, over 300 people in Oklahoma have died from unintentional overdoses involving methamphetamines during the past year. 4

Methamphetamine addiction in Oklahoma

The use of methamphetamines has become a major area of concern for the residents of Oklahoma. According to survey results from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), nearly 1 in 94 residents of Oklahoma (aged 12 or older) reported the use of methamphetamines in the past year. 5 Meth is most common among young adults, with 1 in 52 Sooners (aged 18 to 25) reporting past year use. The use of meth is also prevalent among Oklahoma high schoolers. Around 1 in 500 Oklahoma high school sophomores and seniors currently use meth, 6 while nearly 1 in 62 high school students (grades 9 through 12) have admitted to trying meth at least once. 7

Admissions data indicate that meth is widely used among state residents seeking addiction treatment. According to the Treatment Episode Data Set maintained by SAMHSA, meth and other amphetamines accounted for 37% of all admissions to Oklahoma treatment centers in the past year. 8

Oklahoma City Meth Addiction Treatment at Landmark Recovery

Detoxification, or detox, is an essential first step in overcoming meth addiction and must be completed before you can begin any therapy. Detox involves clearing all substances from the body and helping your system acclimatize to functioning without meth. During this controlled process in our meth treatment center in OKC you will begin to feel emotional and physical discomfort as the body starts going through meth withdrawal. Symptoms of withdrawal, which usually appear within the first 24 hours of abstinence, commonly include: 9

  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Irritability
  • Fatigue
  • Cravings for meth

Some of the more severe psychotic symptoms that are associated with meth withdrawal include paranoia, hallucinations, and delusions. 10 Some individuals may also experience intense cravings and severe depression that can lead to thoughts of suicide. It is therefore highly recommended that anyone suffering from meth addiction participate in a medically supervised detox at a professional OKC meth treatment center.

Landmark Recovery of Oklahoma City’s meth addiction treatment center can provide you with a safe and secure environment to undergo medical detox, eliminating any potential triggers and outside distractions. Our trained medical professionals will closely monitor you around-the-clock during the entire detox process, making sure that you are kept as safe and comfortable as possible while addressing any potential withdrawal complications that may arise. If needed, we will administer specific medications that can help treat certain symptoms and reduce cravings.

Once you have successfully completed detox, you will be able to smoothly transition into the therapy phase of your treatment. We proudly offer science-based, evidence-based meth addiction treatment programs that fully integrate individual and group counseling with various forms of proven behavioral therapies, including cognitive behavioral therapy, rational emotive behavior therapy, and dialectical behavioral therapy.
