Methamphetamine addiction can be overcome – we see this miracle every day in our patients at the Miramar Recovery Methamphetamine Addiction Treatment Program. You or a loved one can live free from methamphetamine addiction.
Our specialized Methamphetamine Addiction Treatment Program provides one of the finest teams of methamphetamine addiction treatment professionals working in the field today. We have also created a methamphetamine addiction program curriculum that is the most successful and comprehensive package currently available.
Methamphetamine is a psychostimulant drug, which is used, primarily, for recreational purposes. The drug stimulates the user’s sympathetic nervous system, otherwise known as the body’s “fight or flight” mechanism. This increases the user’s heart rate and blood pressure and begins to induce hyperglycemia, and bronchodilation.
Methamphetamine directly affects the brain’s reward mechanisms, triggering a feeling of excitement and a euphoric “high,” in the user. This effect makes the drug highly addictive. Upon use, methamphetamine also rapidly enters the user’s brain, leading to a cascading release of the chemicals norepinephrine, dopamine and serotonin. Methamphetamine users often become obsessive/compulsive and perform repetitive tasks like cleaning, washing their hands or constantly assembling and disassembling objects, appliances, etc.
Methamphetamine is also occasionally prescribed to treat extreme obesity, depression, decongestion, and for treating patients with ADHD and narcolepsy.
Methamphetamine is most commonly available as a colorless crystalline solid, but also comes in a variety of other forms.
Our Methamphetamine Addiction Treatment team includes two physicians (an addictionologist and a psychiatrist). Each of our staff members has several years of experience managing methamphetamine detoxification treatment.
Methamphetamine detox is not, itself, a treatment for methamphetamine addiction. However, prior to commencing treatment, detox is critical to remove the drug from the client’s body. During the detoxification period, our team does everything it can to assure that you or your loved one is as comfortable and stress-free as possible. Clients typically experience minimal -- if any -- discomfort while detoxifying in our methamphetamine addiction treatment program.
Methamphetamine Addiction Treatment
In addition to the expert medical professionals we have on staff, we also have a team of methamphetamine addiction behavioral specialists. The team includes expert psychologists and therapists, who provide extensive individualized treatment. This treatment is specifically aimed at discovering and treating the underlying issues that have caused the addiction in the first place.
Additionally, we employ an acupuncturist, nutritionist, masseuse and other professionals who help us provide the most progressive, proven methods for comprehensively treating methamphetamine addiction.
