Crystal Meth Addiction Treatment

Crystal meth is one of the most dangerous drugs available today. It is damaging physically, mentally, and socially. Some of the neurological damage caused by using meth may even be permanent. It is estimated that 964,000 Americans struggle with crystal meth addiction, but that only includes reported cases.

The Summit Wellness Group’s crystal meth programs feature multifaceted treatments. Our programs are designed to help our clients reclaim their lives and live free from addiction. The best way to get over a life controlled by meth is to detox safely and work with a treatment who cares.

Our Approach To Crystal Meth Addiction Treatment

The Summit Wellness Group utilizes a variety of the latest and most effective treatment techniques to help clients overcome crystal meth addiction. Using a combined approach of integrative talk therapies, psychiatric care, and holistic techniques, we aim to treat the underlying causes of addiction and help our clients restore their lives.

Addressing the psychological, neurological, and physical damage done by meth addiction is critical to improve overall wellness and health. Our team of trained clinical therapists, counselors, psychiatrists, doctors, and people in long-term recovery work to guide our clients through the journey of recovery. We walk with our clients through the entire process, from detox to aftercare and every step between.

My addiction to meth cost me my family, business, freedom, and sanity. I was haunted by the people I had hurt and the things I had done in active addiction. I felt alone, ashamed, and tired, and I didn’t feel there was any wya out. I was ready to try something new, and The Summit Wellness Group gave me a safe, supportive environment to face the issues that I had been running away from my entire life. Their staff made me feel like I was part of their family and walked me through early recovery. Thanks to The Summit, I’ve been clean from meth for almost 3 years, and my life just keeps getting better and better.

Treatment Process

Our treatment process is individualized, but it is generally broken down into 3 steps:

Step #1 – Make Meth Detox as Painless as Possible

Meth does not produce physical withdrawal symptoms like some other drugs. The psychological distress caused by this process, however, can be severe. It’s necessary to find help if someone wants to have the best possible chance of successful, long-term recovery. Some of the most common symptoms of meth withdrawal include:

  • Deep Depression (possibly with suicidal ideation)
  • Increased Anxiety and Restlessness
  • Fatigue and Lethargy
  • Sleep Disturbances
  • Anhedonia (inability to feel pleasure)
  • Clouded and Disorganized Thinking

The Summit Wellness Group is connected to a network of partner meth detox facilities. These centers are equipped to get you or your loved one through withdrawal as comfortably as possible. We know that this process isn’t easy, but it is the most critical.

Step #2 – Reduce Meth Cravings Using Medications

Cravings for meth are usually the biggest threat to early recovery. Luckily, there are medications that can help to reduce these cravings. Some medications which may be helpful include:

  • Naltrexone: Usually used to treat opioid or alcohol addiction. This medication may reduce cravings for meth as well.
  • Bupropion: An antidepressant and smoking cessation aid. It may be able to reduce meth cravings.
  • Quetiapine: Originally an antipsychotic, this medication has shown a reduction in cravings.
  • Selegiline: A medication used to treat Parkinson’s. It may help to reduce meth cravings and depression.
  • Fluoxetine: An SSRI antidepressant that may reduce meth cravings.
  • Imipramine: A tricyclic antidepressant that improves meth addiction treatment outcomes.
  • Mirtazapine: An antidepressant used for major depressive disorder. The way this medication works is not fully understood, although it may be able to reduce cravings.

These medications are not a cure for meth addiction. They will give our clients some relief and more time to develop the tools necessary to deal with cravings in a healthy and constructive way. Our team of professionals is well-versed in medication management and can help make this phase of the process as easy as possible.

Step #3 – Create an Individualized Treatment Plan

Crystal meth addiction is a very complex condition. At The Summit Wellness Group, we work with our clients to tailor a treatment plan which will address their specific needs. This plan is developed in a one-on-one session with our treatment team and is unique for every person. Some of the contributing factors that are considered during this step may include:

  • Other drug or alcohol use issues
  • The length of time that meth was used, and the amounts of meth used
  • Any co-occurring mental health issues
  • Physical health complications
  • Current living or housing situation
  • Insurance coverage or self-pay
  • Preference for outpatient or inpatient treatment
  • A person’s commitment to their recovery
