What Are The Possible Treatment Options For Methamphetamine Addiction

Methamphetamine is a highly addictive substance that has an adverse effect on a person’s mind and body.  Understanding the available methamphetamine treatment options can help you select the type of program that is best suited to address your needs.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy

dual-diagnosis-treatment-centersResearch has shown that traditional methods of addressing substance abuse and drug addiction is not successful with treating methamphetamine addiction.  Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, also known as CBT, has been shown to be the most effective means of addressing this addiction.  CBT works by changing the way a person thinks.  By changing the thought process, behavior and actions are changed.  This approach prepares addicted individuals to address stressful situations and cravings as they arise and to cope with those situations without the use of meth.

Inpatient Treatment

A residential treatment program provides the best setting for recovery from meth addiction.  The ideal facility will provide luxury accommodations with a focus on the unique treatment needs of each individual client.  A structured program with the goal of identifying the root cause of the addictive behavior and addressing those issues provides the best chance of success.

In order to ensure clients are comfortable during their stay in rehab, look for treatment centers with a number of amenities.  A natural setting, spa facilities, exercise room and gourmet meals can allow residents to relax and focus on recovery.

Outpatient Treatment

Outpatient treatment for meth addiction can either follow inpatient treatment or can be done separately.  An outpatient treatment program will provide a structured program but clients will return home at the end of each day. Outpatient treatment may be ideal for those who are unable to commit to a residential program.
