Meth Rehab in West Hollywood

What is Meth?

Meth is the shortened name for Methamphetamine which is also sometimes also called blue, crystal, tina, ice, crank or speed. Regardless of what it is called, meth is a highly addictive stimulant that has an effect on the central nervous system and increases the amount of the natural chemical dopamine in the brain. Because dopamine creates such a euphoric sensation, people will continue to use meth to try and repeat or maintain the effect. As soon as meth is taken the user will feel a sense of energy, hyperfocus, decreased appetite, as well as an increased heart rate and body temperature.

What Are the Consequences of Meth Use?

Meth use can contribute to irregular sleep, severe paranoia and hallucinations, which mimic symptoms of schizophrenia and cause a loss of reality. Such psychotic breaks from reality can result in hospitalization or death as the user continues to put themselves in increasingly dangerous situations. 

Other potential dangers of using meth include heart attack, stroke, seizure, and respiratory failure as well as exposure to potential conditions like HIV/AIDS and Hepatitis if using intravenously. 

A long term effect of meth use can cause what is known as “meth mouth” which is the deterioration and teeth and gums. Additional effects can be sores and changes to the skin as the user may begin picking at their skin as well as  aggressive and violent outbursts.

We are here to discuss meth rehab treatment options and help you create a treatment plan.

How do you Treat Meth Addiction?

Treatment for meth like many substances is a lifelong process. Depending on how much and how long someone has been using they may require medical and psychiatric stabilization. If detox for meth use is required it may be done in a residential setting where medication can be used to help get through the initial withdrawal symptoms so the client can begin participating in group therapy and individual counseling sessions. Learning how to live, work, and have relationships can be challenging without meth. Many clients will benefit from participating in a Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) as well as Intensive Outpatient (IOP) levels of care to learn new behaviors, coping skills  and habits.

At CAST Centers our CAST Alignment Model (CAM) is designed to help clients learn how to live comfortably in their own skin without the use of meth. Our clinicians use evidence-based practices like Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), and Motivational Interviewing to help clients learn how to live in alignment with their values and belief systems. By using a combination of group therapy and one-on-one sessions in our PHP and IOP levels of care, clients at CAST Centers recover in a community setting where they learn from one another and support each other daily.
