Methamphetamine Detox

Written by: Editorial Staff.

Methamphetamine or meth is a dangerous and debilitating drug. Discontinuing use of meth can be a very difficult and knowing the detox symptoms may be beneficial.

Methamphetamine Withdrawal

The withdrawal and detoxification from methamphetamine is much different from other drugs. Some users may not become physically addicted and their withdrawal symptoms may not be as extreme as those who are withdrawing from opiates or benzodiazepines. The psychological issues from prolonged methamphetamine use can be very dangerous. Supervised detoxification is recommended for most who abuse meth.

Meth Withdrawal Symptoms Include:

  • Irritability
  • Paranoia
  • Insomnia
  • Delusions
  • Hallucinations
  • Convulsions
  • Loss of appetite
  • Decreased energy
  • Mood swings
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Hindered immune system
  • Cold sweats
  • Chills
  • Loss of coordination

Safe Methods for Methamphetamine Detox

Those who abuse methamphetamine for extended periods of time can resemble those who suffer from mental illnesses. This makes a drug rehabilitation center a very safe and smart place to detox when discontinuing methamphetamine use.

Meth treatment facilities help acclimate the addicts body to normal sleeping and eating habits as well as psychological evaluations and counseling. Utilizing professional help is a great way to safely detox from meth while acquiring tools and knowledge to further sobriety.

Getting back to normal sleeping and eating habits are very important when detoxing from methamphetamine. Meth can deteriorate an individual’s body making proper diet and rest essential when trying to regain strength and normal body functions.

Methamphetamine Addiction Treatment

Once and individual has detoxed from methamphetamine falling back into old behaviors is very possible. For those who detox at home checking into a drug rehabilitation program or outpatient program is recommended. At treatment facilities, addicts acquire tools to remain abstinent from methamphetamine and other drugs.

Getting involved with a twelve step fellowship has helped many meth addicts sustain sobriety. Most rehabilitation centers and outpatient programs will introduce clients to the fellowship. Having a strong support system has proven effective for achieving long term sobriety.
