Meth rehabilitation


Methamphetamine addiction is an extremely serious problem, affecting not only the individual but his family and the community. As a form of drug abuse, it is a social illness that needs the support of the government in terms of legislation and restriction of the substance use, and the commitment of enforcement authorities in ensuring that the sources and abusers of this substance are dealt with accordingly.

Meth rehabilitation is a way by which a meth addict can put an end to his or her addiction and return to normal life. Just like alcohol abuse rehabilitation, meth rehab begins when the substance user recognizes and admits that he or she has a problem with meth addiction, and is willing to put an end to it by seeking professional help. Most addicts believe on the onset that they can quit meth addiction on their own, a willpower that was proven to be unsuccessful in most cases.

Once the meth dependent agrees to enter a rehab facility, the process of a comprehensive and monitored rehabilitation can begin. Without it, the drug user will fight off any clinical and social help to get off the meth addiction by not taking the medications, rebellion like hurting one’s self, extreme isolation, and sneaking out of the rehab facility.

The Social Education Modality is considered the most successful of all meth rehab programs implemented by drug rehabilitation facilities. The program focuses on prevention of future dependency as opposed to focusing on the wrong nature of meth abuse.



The first step in the program is the detoxification process, followed by a strictly implemented guided shift to a meth-free lifestyle encompassing nutritious diet, re-introduction to family and community, behavioral intervention and clinical support (including medication if needed). Patients who undergo this program from 3 months to a year have higher rehabilitation success rates and lesser margins for a relapse.
