Crystal Meth Addiction Treatment and Rehab

Addiction is a disease, and it is never too late to seek out professional medical help in order to address it. Addiction has no cure, but it is treatable through a combination of physical and psychological strategies. Drug addiction rehabilitation is a powerful tool that has helped many people heal and start a life of sobriety.

The Recovery Village has treatment plans for anyone suffering from methamphetamine addiction. Whether this is your first time entering rehab or you have experienced relapse and are getting back on track, our team is here to help.

Methamphetamine can consume your life. At The Recovery Village, we understand addiction and how to address it. Studies have shown that rehab is an effective way to treat methamphetamine addiction, and we are here to provide the best treatment possible.

The Recovery Village offers a number of methamphetamine addiction treatment plans:

At The Recovery Village, the drug rehabilitation process begins with an assessment of the patient. A team of doctors, therapists, counselors and support staff will collaborate with you to formulate a treatment plan suited to your particular needs. This plan will go into effect once a patient has officially entered the program. Upon admittance, the patient will go through the process of detoxification, which is primarily centered around withdrawal. It is often deeply uncomfortable and can put significant stress on the body and mind, sometimes leading to dangerous physical and psychological complications. We highly recommend anyone beginning rehab go through detox at a facility such as The Recovery Village so a specially trained doctor can supervise and make sure you’re safe.

Once the detox process is complete and the body has flushed the drugs out of a patient’s system, the rehabilitation phase begins. Rehabilitation involves physical and psychological care to address the damage drug addiction has done to the body and mind. We combine a variety of therapies to meet the needs of each individual patient. This is the longest phase of treatment and often involves a number of high and low points. Our addiction treatment professionals recommend at least 28 days in treatment, although research shows the longer a person is in rehab, the higher chance they have for maintaining sobriety.

The last stage of the treatment process is aftercare. Aftercare planning during treatment is essential to help the patient avoid relapse or a return to meth abuse once they leave The Recovery Village. Our aftercare plans often involve scheduled check-ups with doctors and therapists at home to ensure the sober living skills you learned in rehab are practiced behavior once you’re back home.

Each person’s journey of rehabilitation and recovery is different. In the overall population, meth treatment success rates are generally on-par with other highly addictive drugs. Many people do make a successful recovery, and the benefit they receive as a result is enormous. Things lost to addiction, like physical health, the ability to engage in relationships, good hygiene and a feeling of personal calm, can all be regained.

Recovery is an ongoing process for those who have, at any point, been addicted to methamphetamine. Due to the profound effects that the drug has on the brain, methamphetamine addiction does leave a permanent mark in the body and mind. Addiction does not have a cure, but treatment and recovery are possible.  

During inpatient rehabilitation for meth addiction, patients will reside on The Recovery Village’s campus. They can engage with other treatment recipients and participate in several different kinds of therapy. The minimum stay in inpatient rehab is 28 days, with an average stay falling between 30 and 60 days. As with all programs at The Recovery Village, inpatient rehabilitation maintains complete confidentiality. The intensive nature of the program is highly effective and allows patients to fully commit themselves to treatment.

The inpatient treatment option is particularly convenient for patients who come from out of state, though many people seeking rehab care are also from the local area. Living on campus is enormously beneficial to all program participants, as it provides a healthy environment free from addiction triggers. The inpatient option also allows patients full, around-the-clock access to medical personnel in case of an emergency.

For most methamphetamine addiction inpatients, treatment begins with detoxification. The Recovery Village has specially trained staff on hand to help you through the process of withdrawal. With their years of experience, our team can ensure that detoxification progresses in as safe and comfortable a manner as possible.

Following detox, rehabilitation begins. Behavioral therapies, including cognitive behavioral therapy and contingency management methods, have been shown to be highly effective in treating meth addiction. Patients in inpatient rehab will regularly meet one-on-one with an individual counselor, as well as participate in group therapy. Group therapy sessions will focus on a variety of issues associated with addiction, such as relationship issues and trauma survival. The Recovery Village also provides scientifically supported holistic therapy options, including yoga and equine-assisted therapy.

There are many differences between inpatient and outpatient rehab. In outpatient rehab, patients do not live on The Recovery Village campus. Instead, they come and go during the day. Typically this type of rehabilitation treatment is recommended as a step down to a lower level of care for people who have been doing well in inpatient therapy for some time.

Outpatient care at The Recovery Village includes:

  • Individual counseling
  • Group therapy
  • Psychiatric care for those suffering from anxiety, depression and other co-occurring disorders
  • Nutritional counseling

The outpatient therapy option offers a greater level of independence and autonomy for patients transitioning back into their daily lives. Most of these patients have already undergone detoxification and inpatient rehabilitation. Outpatient therapy can also be a beneficial option for those with less severe or more recent conditions. The accountability and support of The Recovery Village outpatient rehabilitation provide a clear connection to medical personnel and addiction specialists, enveloping people in a network of care.

The outpatient treatment program often provides patients with enough autonomy to maintain their employment and work responsibilities. It can also allow them to care for the needs of their home and family. Families will often require assistance in order to process and address the changes in the life of their loved one, and family therapy is regularly included in a patient’s treatment plan. It is often a good option for those with a safe home and strong support system. If one’s environment is toxic, however, a sober living home is more likely to be successful. Those with deeply rooted addictions may need to come into The Recovery Village on a daily basis.

Therapy is the key component in any drug recovery program. The Recovery Village offers a wide range of therapeutic options for patients of all backgrounds. No matter the patient’s addiction and needs, there is a form of therapy that can help.

Individual therapy is the most common type of behavioral treatment. It builds a one-on-one relationship between therapist and patient in which the therapist helps someone identify and explore feelings and issues in their life, including their addiction.

Group counseling is also relationally based. A skilled therapist will facilitate a structured conversation amongst a group of people who have similar struggles. This is often a powerful tool for building camaraderie and mutual support amongst addiction survivors. Each person is able to learn from the experiences of others in the group. This form of therapy often helps patients create a support network that is critical to their future success in sobriety.

There are also group education opportunities available at The Recovery Village. Trained professionals regularly offer informational sessions to instruct people on the biology of their experience. Many people greatly appreciate being able to understand what their bodies and minds are going through as they rehabilitate. Psychoeducation classes are also available, offering patients a better understanding of the mental process of recovery. Our team’s training also offers tools to address harmful emotions and behaviors, rerouting those feelings toward positive action.

We also offer family education to help our patients’ loved ones understand the process of addiction and recovery and the ways in which they can best support their loved one. Dietary counseling helps individuals craft a healthy and nutritious food intake. This can be particularly important for methamphetamine addiction survivors, as meth will often shut down the body’s desire for food, causing malnourishment.

The Recovery Village also offers a wide variety of scientifically backed alternative therapies. This includes art, massage, equine and yoga therapy and more. These practices are often enormously helpful for individuals with co-occurring emotional issues.

We at The Recovery Village believe it is critical to focus on a patient’s holistic well-being. Mental illness commonly occurs alongside meth addiction, and many people suffer from disorders such as anxiety and depression as they undergo the unpleasant symptoms of meth addiction and meth recovery. Upon admittance, a patient’s physical and mental health are both addressed. When someone is found to be facing both a methamphetamine addiction and a mental illness, it is referred to as a dual diagnosis.

Co-occurring disorders and addiction often form a symbiotic relationship, each feeding off of the other. For example, the use of meth will often create a feeling of anxiety in its user, causing them to take anti-anxiety medication. The anti-anxiety drugs will force someone to come down from their high. When they come down from the high, they are likely to feel very depressed. In order to combat these feelings of depression, they will take another dose of meth. This, in turn, causes them to feel anxious and the cycle begins again. This symbiotic relationship between meth and mental illness emphasizes how critical it is to treat both aspects of a dual diagnosis; One cannot be effectively treated without the other.

Issues of addiction and mental health can both be addressed through behavioral treatment in individual therapy. In some cases, members of The Recovery Village medical staff may prescribe patients a psychological medication in order to help alleviate the symptoms of their co-occurring mental health issue.

Examples of mental health issues that can co-occur with methamphetamine addiction are:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
  • Schizophrenia
  • Bipolar
  • Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)
  • Eating disorders, such as anorexia or bulimia
Drug rehabilitation does cost money, but it is a necessary expense. As such, many health insurance companies are able to help lighten the financial burden of recovery. The price of rehabilitation varies depending on the level of care received, as well as the length of time that a person is undergoing treatment. At The Recovery Village, we recognize the cost of rehabilitation can be prohibitive to those seeking to recover from addiction.

We believe that all people deserve the best possible addiction recovery care, and offer some flexibility through payment plans and other methods of rehabilitation financing. Call our intake coordinators to discuss your particular financial situation. We can help you get the treatment you need.

Many insurance companies will cover the cost of meth addiction treatment, though individual insurance coverage will vary by company and plan. Ask your insurance company what they cover in terms of addiction recovery treatment. The Recovery Village is happy to work with a variety of insurance companies and our intake coordinators are always ready to help you understand your insurance and the options available to you. In some cases, our representatives are even able to call your insurance company on your behalf. Contact us today to find out how we can help.
