Methamphetamine addiction treatment and recovery

Methamphetamine, commonly called crystal meth or just meth, is an addictive substance that works on the central nervous system to produce a high that is characterized by long periods of wakefulness and euphoria (happy, energetic feelings). Because it causes quick highs that don’t last very long, it’s easy to get hooked on the high feeling and want it again soon after.

Methamphetamine causes rapid release of dopamine, a feel-good chemical in the brain, causing the brain to want more of the drug, more frequently. It also causes the brain to produce less of its own feel-good chemicals because the drug does it so powerfully.

What are some common symptoms of methamphetamine addiction?

Some common meth addiction symptoms include:

  • Anxiety
  • Confusion
  • Insomnia
  • Paranoia
  • Hallucinations
  • Mood disturbances
  • Delusions

If you’ve been taking meth and have one or several of these symptoms, it’s important to know that methamphetamine addiction treatment is available—and you shouldn’t do it alone. Withdrawal symptoms from meth can be difficult and dangerous. Find out about our outpatient admissions process for meth addiction.

Misconceptions about meth addiction

Some of the most common misconceptions about meth addiction are:

  • It’s easy to hide meth addiction.
    People who are addicted to methamphetamine can still function in their daily lives so they often think they’re fooling those around them. This is a common misconception about meth addiction as most people can easily see that people with meth addiction are showing external symptoms such as hyperactivity and unusually rapid talking and movement.
  • Meth users can’t recover their brain function.
    Similar to other types of addiction treatments, methamphetamine addiction treatment begins with detox. (At Kingsway, we provide medication-assisted treatment to help minimize difficult side effects due to detox.) During the detox period, usually within the first two weeks, as the drug leaves the brain and the body, things begin to normalize. The brain also begins to return to its normal state. Through recovery, we help you disrupt unhealthy brain patterns and ways of thinking to help you make better decisions and prevent relapse in the future.
  • Meth makes you better at socializing. 
    In fact, meth can be a very isolating drug. As you continue to use methamphetamine, your addiction takes over and you become more obsessed with using the drug and spending time with others who use it. A common symptom of meth addiction is to have feelings of paranoia and delusion, which often lead to wanting to be alone in order to feel safe and secure.
  • It’s more difficult to treat than other types of addictions.
    Meth is no more difficult to treat than alcohol addiction, marijuana addiction or heroin addiction. The most effective methamphetamine addiction treatment programs include medical detox and cognitive behavioral therapy, both of which we provide at Kingsway Recovery, along with supportive group therapy sessions, holistic therapies, and long-term relapse prevention strategies.
