Meth is extremely powerful, both in how it affects your body and the damage it causes to your life in addiction. No matter how you use your meth, whether by smoking, inhaling, injecting or eating, you still must go through withdrawal to put your drug use behind you. The only safe way to stop using meth is through a qualified meth detox center, a center offering accredited medical detox services followed by rehab treatment.

Conquering Your Meth Addiction in Detox and Rehab

You need a specialized drug and alcohol detox center such as The Ranch, one with experience in helping others achieve sobriety after long-term methamphetamine use. Your journey to sobriety starts in detox and requires medical supervision and care to ensure a safe transition from addiction to a new sober beginning.

Some of meth’s effects are fatal. Amazingly, over eight percent of all ER visits in 2011 related to meth use, according to SAMHSA. After detox, many people experience anxiety, depression, or both of these mental conditions. Others feel suicidal, self-injure or relapse on the drug, often leading to an overdose.

Because of all of these risks, you need medically supervised detox and treatment services in safety, a licensed and accredited medical detox program. The Ranch provides these, along with other services you need during and after detox. These include:

Signs You Need a Meth Detox Center

Many people wonder how you can tell you need a meth detox center after using meth for a period of time. Multiple symptoms point to this need, as well as withdrawal from your meth abuse. You need medical meth detox center help if you experience withdrawal symptoms, such as:

  • Depression
  • Severe hunger
  • Intense cravings
  • Extreme exhaustion
  • Anxiety
  • Suicidal thoughts

One of the biggest risks of meth withdrawal is fatal overdose caused by relapse. Thousands of people relapse and overdose in a given year when they realize they cannot handle meth withdrawal on their own. They seek out more meth part way through their withdrawal, then use their typical amount. This causes overdose because your body partially cleans itself of the drug, leaving your tolerance at a much lower level.

How Will I Feel in Detox?

Your drug history affects the severity of your withdrawal symptoms. Users with a high tolerance experience a more intense withdrawal period, often necessitating the help of medical professionals.

You cannot predict how your withdrawal will affect you. So it is much safer to seek professional help at The Ranch for this very difficult and highly uncomfortable process. Ask for help for your own withdrawal, to get through your symptoms comfortably and safely under medical supervision in The Ranch’s methamphetamine detox center.

Many of your worst symptoms go away within about a week of your stay in a meth detox center. These symptoms include depression and psychosis. By the end of week two, most people stop feeling the constant cravings for the drug. But you still feel some cravings for up to five weeks after quitting.

Being in a licensed and accredited methamphetamine detox center like The Ranch makes a huge difference in your whole recovery process. It sets you on the right path for rehab, where you expand on your detox progress by working toward sustainable, long term recovery.
