Crystal Meth abuse is a very disturbing trend that we’ve seen grow exponentially over the last twenty-three years of treating chemically dependent people here at our rehab centers on the beach in California. Other names for crystal meth include speed, crank, crystal, tweak, ice, or glass. Methamphetamine is taken orally, intranasally (snorting the powder), by needle injection, or by smoking.
The widespread phenomenon of young people suffering from meth addiction is an insidious development that has spread from the urban areas into the suburbs and even into rural areas across the United States.
We have learned that the young men and women who arrive here for treatment that are addicted to speed have a very unique outlook on their drug abuse and specific treatment needs. Many times there is anger, denial and often severe depression accompanying the initial detox from meth and getting our clients to start enjoying life again here on the beach in Orange County often requires the skills we use to treat our dual diagnosis patients who suffer from a mood or behavioral disorder in addition to an addiction to drugs or alcohol. Our staff of clinical experts has to caringly keep the client on their side and educate them about the dangers of meth abuse. Through workshops, lectures, and individual and group therapy we will guide our client to the realization that life without meth is attainable and will be enjoyable. The beaches of Newport Coast, Orange County, are a great setting for this recovery from meth addiction at our private rehab center.
Those Addicted to Meth Should Seek Treatment Immediately
Meth addicted individuals are suffering from a chemical dependency that is potentially fatal but also has a high risk of doing permanent brain damage.
Users of crystal meth, or any of it’s street derivatives (like crank, glass, or ice), may become addicted quickly, needing higher doses and more often. Not only can meth induce a severe episode of depression after it wears off, often there is irreversible damage to blood vessels in the brain.
As users increase their dosages, more and more of the brains dopamine is depleted making it difficult for drug addicted meth users to experience joy or happiness with or without the drug. People who use meth to stay up for days at a time while ignoring their body’s need to sleep and eat can literally “fry” their brain and do permanent nerve damage.
