How Addictive Is Meth?

Meth is an extremely addictive stimulant substance because of the intense rush of euphoria it causes from the forced release of dopamine. Dopamine is a natural endorphin that causes a sense of pleasure. The increased release from meth use can cause a person to feel an extended sense of pleasure that can last for a prolonged period. 

The euphoric effects of using meth are remembered in the brain. This causes cravings for the drug and encourages people to use the drug again. As a result, meth use is reinforced to experience the desirable effects. 

Once the effects wear off, people experience a crash. During this time, they can experience withdrawal symptoms. In order to alleviate the undesirable withdrawal symptoms, people will use meth again and again to experience pleasure. Eventually, the continued use leads to dependence and addiction.  

How to Safely Quit Meth

Quitting meth safely requires professional help and assistance in a medically supervised meth detox treatment program. The withdrawal symptoms when quitting meth abruptly can be very intense, painful, and uncomfortable. Without supervised detox, it is very difficult for individuals to stop meth use alone.

You are not alone. You deserve to get help.

How Long Does It Take to Detox from Meth?

Meth detox can vary from person to person, based on the duration and frequency of use and dosage taken. Additionally detox can range from a few weeks to a few months, with the most intense withdrawal symptoms peaking between seven and fourteen days on average. After peaking, the physical withdrawal symptoms gradually subside as the body heals and readjusts dopamine levels without the drug.

How Does Meth Detox in Nashville Work?

Meth detox in Nashville at our addiction treatment center begins with a comprehensive evaluation to create a personalized treatment plan to address each individual’s specific and unique needs. Our detox program is managed by our experienced medical professionals, addiction specialists, and therapists, who provide round-the-clock monitoring and support to ensure the safety and comfort of our clients. Our detox program incorporated evidence-based and holistic approaches and medication-assisted treatment (MAT) when appropriate.

Medications Used During Meth Detox

Unlike opioid detox, there are no specific FDA-approved medications used for meth detox. Rather, medications are prescribed based on the withdrawal symptoms a person is experiencing. For instance, antidepressants could be prescribed to treat anxiety and depressive symptoms. Other medications may be used to address cravings and specific drugs can be used to help with sleep disturbances. 

What Happens Once Meth Detox Is Done?

Meth detox is just the first step toward long-term recovery from meth addiction. As meth detox is nearing its completion, we work with our clients to help them develop an appropriate aftercare plan, which often includes transitioning to one of our addiction treatment programs based on the level of care they require. 

Programs We Offer:

  • PHP: Our PHP (partial hospitalization program) is for individuals who require highly structured and intensive addiction treatment but do not require 24/7 monitoring. Sessions are held daily throughout the week and cover individual, group, and holistic therapies to help uncover the underlying causes of addiction, build effective coping strategies, learn more about the disease of addiction, and develop a strong peer support network.  In the evenings, clients return home or to a sober living facility. 
  • IOP: Our IOP (intensive outpatient program) is a step-down level of care from our PHP. It is also appropriate for individuals with mild to moderate meth addiction who have a strong support system outside treatment and can manage their triggers and cravings effectively. The program meets several times weekly for fewer hours than our PHP and includes similar services as our PHP. It gives participants more freedom to manage outside commitments while still receiving meth addiction treatment. 
  • Evening IOP: Our evening IOP offers the same level of care as our daytime IOP with the added flexibility to work, go to school, or manage daytime personal commitments.
  • OP: Our OP (outpatient program) is a step-down level of care from our IOPs for people that still need ongoing support and treatment to support long-term recovery from meth addiction. Sessions usually are scheduled at times that best work for the individual. They can range from meeting a few times weekly to once a week, depending on their specific needs.
  • Sober Living: For our clients who do not have a stable and supportive environment at home, we have partnered with local sober living homes to provide a safe and supportive environment for them to maintain their newly found sobriety.

Can I Detox from Meth at Home?

Detoxing from meth at home has several dangers and is rarely successful for several reasons:

  • The withdrawal symptoms can be extremely uncomfortable and unpleasant. One of the side effects of meth withdrawal is dehydration, which can lead to life-threatening complications if not managed. In addition, some people can contemplate suicide just to make the pain stop. 
  • When detoxing from meth at home, there is no accountability. Furthermore, the individual often still has access to meth. Once the more intense withdrawal symptoms tart and the pain becomes too much to bear, it is much easier to relapse and start using meth again. 
  • Most importantly, there is no one to monitor withdrawal symptoms and provide medical interventions when needed. While family members might mean well and want to be supportive, they cannot diagnose symptoms or when their loved ones need immediate medical care.
