Learn More About Meth Addiction

Learn more about meth addiction treatment at Mount Regis Center in Salem, VA

Methamphetamine is an extremely addictive man-made central nervous system depressant that causes tremendous feelings of energy and euphoric high in the meth user. Methamphetamine is available in a white powdered form and a crystal rock form – “crystal meth” and can be eaten, snorted, smoked, and injected. Quickly crossing the blood-brain barrier, the effects of meth are almost instantaneous and far longer-lasting than other stimulants.

Meth is becoming a nationwide epidemic as it’s relatively easy to manufacture and uses readily available materials that can be bought over the counter and “cooked” at home. This leads too many fatal accidents as the materials used to cook meth are highly toxic and combustible as well as increasing the ever-growing supply of methamphetamines in the world.

Brain imaging studies show that chronic meth use leads to significant and permanent damage in the brain structure and function as methamphetamines destroy the dopamine receptors in the brain. This can cause meth addicts to experience anhedonia, or lack of emotions, unless more of the meth is used.

Methamphetamine can cause significant problems in the life of a person who is addicted to this dangerous and illegal drug. Interpersonal relationships take a backseat to seeking out, using, and recovering from meth use. Jobs may be lost due to decrease in productivity, and mounting legal and financial woes can cause a methamphetamine user to become homeless.

Meth is a serious epidemic in the United States and worldwide. Rehab for meth addiction serves to help those who were once addicted to meth to live a sober and happy life once again.

Types of Therapy

Types of therapy used to treat meth use disorders at Mount Regis Center in Salem, VA

Countless studies have shown that the best form of rehab for meth addiction is a combination of medically-managed detox, medication management, and a variety of therapeutic approaches that aim to treat the person as a whole. We strive to include all of these in your therapeutic care plan for your stay with us.

When you come to us, we will determine the level of your addiction and the types of substances in your system. If necessary, you will enter into our detox program for complete detoxification from methamphetamines surrounded by trained and experienced doctors and nurses. We’ll also begin to address the medical complications of chronic methamphetamine abuse so that you are best able to physically heal.

Medication management may be used at the beginning of your stay with us to control your symptoms and withdrawal effects. Slowly, we will taper you off these medications so that you do not become addicted to another medication during your stay with us. In addition to medication management and humane detox, we also offer a wide variety of therapeutic modalities to best treat the whole person.

Group therapy is an important part of the therapeutic process at our rehab center. We use small group therapy in order to best provide you with the intimate environment needed to open up about your struggles among your peers who are facing similar issues. We teach classes about relapse prevention, co-occurring disorders, poly-substance abuse, and addiction.

Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) is a form of therapy aimed to address erroneous misconceptions in the way you think and act. You’ll learn more appropriate ways to view the world in the hopes that it will then change your behavior. CBT is a highly successful form of therapy to treat meth addiction.

Rational emotive behavioral therapy (REBT) is a form of therapy based upon the premise that our beliefs, rather than the events, are what cause us anguish. We’ll work together to identify these beliefs and challenge them to allow for you to live the happiest and most fulfilling life possible.

Family therapy is a very important part of therapy at our rehab center as we know that you are a part of a larger family system. We offer family visits three times each week while you’re in rehab in order to allow you the opportunity to showcase your growth and recovery. Additionally, we will teach your loved ones about addiction, what co-occurring disorders are, and provide them the forum to discuss how your meth addiction has impacted their lives. We’ll also provide information about available community programs for the family such as Nar-Anon and Al-Anon.

In addition to standard therapeutic techniques, we also provide you with holistic experiential treatments. These include:

  • Yoga
  • Art programming
  • A.A. and N.A.
  • Nutrition and wellness counseling
  • Recreational programs
  • Spiritual therapy
Rehab Aftercare

Continuing care, what comes next?

Mount Regis Center provides aftercare services as a part of your discharge plan to allow you to maintain your hard work and sobriety and well-being. Our caring staff will conduct aftercare services depending upon your needs.

Some men and women opt to join our structured programs Intensive Outpatient Programs (IOP) or Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) to allow for a similarly structured environment to continue healing. Other people may opt to discharge to home with outpatient services and counseling in place before you leave us. We’ll also provide you with information about available community resources to help you continue on your path to sobriety.
