Methamphetamine Detox & Rehab Program With a Holistic Focus
If you or your loved one have been struggling with meth addiction, you may not be sure how to begin the recovery process. We understand that it may seem like there is no way out. At Ranch Creek Recovery, we have treated hundreds of clients with meth addiction and we know what it takes to treat both the addiction as well as the whole person. We are here to help you or your loved one detox and recover at our meth rehab centers in both Murrieta and Temecula, CA.
How Long is Meth Rehab at Ranch Creek?
The length of treatment for methamphetamine addiction depends on a number of factors. First, we establish a history of a someone’s using habits by determining both how long the meth usage has been going on for and how much has been abused. More severe addictions or long-term ones usually require a longer cycle or result in a longer stay in treatment. For most people, 90 days in residential treatment with a long-term aftercare program is recommended.
“Ranch Creek Recovery saved my life. I came into RCR lost and broken trying to get back on track in my life. As a result of this great team of counselors/psychologists, I have done more than restore my life, I have reached new goals and gained so many life skills that go far beyond just being sober. I love and appreciate all the staff and know if you have a willing heart to change, you are in the right place.” – Joshua
Detox: The First Step in Treating Methamphetamine Addiction
The first stage of treating meth addiction is detox. Short for detoxification, this first stage is the management of withdrawal symptoms and the purging of toxins from the body. While not as physically dangerous as alcohol or heroin withdrawal, withdrawal symptoms wreak severe psychological effects on meth users, including:
Because of these effects, Do-It-Yourself or “cold turkey” detox method is never recommended. Medically supervised detox at a meth rehab center is the safest way to begin the treatment process.
Our Approach to Treating Meth Addiction
Methamphetamine treatment requires a holistic focus that allows for a number of methodologies to work together to treat the whole person instead of just addressing the addiction alone. One important tactic is participating in one-on-one therapy and small group sessions that focus on cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT). Another therapy method we utilize in our meth rehab program is amino acid therapy, which is used to restore the brain chemistry and help with cravings, appetite, sleep patterns, energy, stress and mood swings.
Our holistic approach to treating meth addiction also includes yoga, fitness, acupuncture and equine therapy. These therapies are supplemental in addition to both individual and group therapy, and can help keep you focused and eliminate downtime, which often brings on stress and anxiety for those in treatment.
More Information About Methamphetamine
Methamphetamine, also known ice, glass and crystal is a powerful synthetic stimulant. Users experience physiological changes such as a boost in heart rate, blood pressure, respiration and body temperature in addition to hugely increased energy, euphoria, paranoia and nervousness.
Methods of use include smoking, injection, snorting and orally. Meth boost brain levels of the neurotransmitter dopamine which causes feelings of euphoria and increased energy. Meth causes an excessive release of dopamine. Due to the spike in dopamine, meth is very addictive. While rumors that using meth one time will cause addiction are not true, meth’s rapid and powerful high has been known to cause cravings straight away.
The experts at meth treatment centers like Ranch Creek Recovery have noted as well that the “coming down” period following meth use causes deep depression and feelings of emptiness and hopelessness, which also contribute to the advent of meth addiction.
