What Is Inpatient Rehab Like?
You’ll recover in a welcoming setting that feels more like home than a treatment center. Comfortable furniture, warm decor, well-balanced meals and soothing views of nature help you relax and feel at ease. Living with peers in recovery provides opportunities for strong connections and lifelong friendships.
At The Ranch, we make sure your treatment plan considers your unique needs and preferences. While each client’s stay at our drug rehab is unique, common components include:
Safe and Compassionate Detox
The Ranch treatment center offers meth detox that is safe and comfortable. Without medical detox, symptoms of meth withdrawal can be intense and uncomfortable. If you binged for days or weeks, severe withdrawal symptoms can last up to 10 days. Due to meth-induced neurotoxicity in the brain, some symptoms such as psychosis can last for months or years after meth use has stopped. We can help minimize these complications.
Our medical team attends to you around the clock. We ease meth withdrawal symptoms with research-backed medications and alternative treatments. Some of the most promising pharmacological treatments for meth dependence are modafinil, bupropion and naltrexone. Many methamphetamine abusers also use other substances. This can complicate detox. The Ranch detox team has experience with polysubstance detox. We know the most effective and safe approaches to treat both prescription drug and illicit drug abuse, including:
- Painkiller addiction
- Cocaine addiction
- Stimulant drug addiction
- Opioid addictions
- Crack cocaine addiction
- Benzodiazepine addiction
- Heroin addiction
- Alcohol addiction
After you safely and comfortably eliminate drugs and alcohol from your system, you’ll be better able to focus on treatment and rehab.
Individual Therapy With a Mental Health Counselor
Inpatient rehab at The Ranch includes one-on-one counseling with a mental health professional. These sessions help you dig deeper into issues that underlie addiction and mental illness. You’ll address the reasons why you became addicted to meth. You’ll learn to change unhealthy thought patterns through approaches like cognitive behavioral therapy. Within a safe therapeutic relationship, you’ll rediscover your authentic self and the special traits that drug abuse may be hiding.
Group Therapy With Peers Who Understand
You’ll attend group therapy with other substance abusers who can relate to what you’re going through. You’ll see yourself in others and gain new insights into your problems. Sharing with others helps you improve your interpersonal skills. You’ll practice open, honest, assertive communication. Often clients build strong bonds with group members that last well after residential treatment ends.
Traditional and Alternative Therapies
The Ranch offers traditional and alternative therapies to treat meth addiction. Research shows effective traditional treatments for crystal meth addiction include cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), motivational interviewing and support groups. Alternative approaches can complement traditional methods by helping you experience recovery concepts in different ways. They can help you heal physically, mentally and spiritually.
The Ranch rehab centers offer alternative approaches like:
- Adventure therapy
- Equine therapy
- Spiritual practices
Treatment for Co-Occurring Disorders
Substance use disorders often co-occur with mental health disorders. Proper psychiatric care helps manage these symptoms. Managing mental health disorders is important for preventing substance abuse relapse. The Ranch provides comprehensive treatment for addiction and mental health issues. Residential treatment includes psychiatric assessments and regular appointments with psychiatric staff as needed. We’ll prescribe medications for mental disorder symptoms as appropriate.
Meth addiction can co-occur with a number of mental health conditions, including:
- Anxiety disorders
- Panic disorders and panic attacks
- Borderline personality disorder
- Bipolar disorder
- Posttraumatic stress disorder
Drug dependence may begin as a way of self-medicating mental health disorders. Psychiatric symptoms can also result from drug abuse because addiction causes imbalances in the brain. For instance, depressive symptoms occur frequently in methamphetamine users who recently have stopped using the drug. The Ranch psychiatric team is well-versed in treating any dual diagnosis that occurs with drug dependence.
Support for Loved Ones
The effects of meth aren’t confined to the substance abuser. Families are impacted by addiction as well. The Ranch provides support for loved ones through family therapy and family programs. Mental health professionals will help you and your loved ones address difficult topics. You’ll learn to communicate better and how to support each other in healthy ways. Loved ones will learn about warning signs of a relapse and how they can help.
Preparation for Life After Treatment
People who’ve abused drugs need ongoing support to stay strong in recovery. You’ll learn coping skills in drug rehab that you can use in place of substances when faced with triggers. We’ll also connect you with continuing care resources that will support you after you leave treatment. These may include:
- Professional referrals to therapists and psychiatrists
- Step-down levels of care like partial hospitalization or intensive outpatient treatment
- Support groups like 12-step programs or alternative 12-step programs
- Drug tests
- The Ranch alumni groups and events
Why Inpatient Meth Treatment Is Effective
Methamphetamine has toxic effects on the body and mind. In most cases of severe meth addiction, it’s imperative treatment take place in a drug rehab facility that can handle the potential physical and psychological meth withdrawal symptoms. Detox and stabilization help regulate brain chemistry. Inpatient meth rehab helps you address underlying issues tied to methamphetamine abuse and any co-occurring disorders. This helps prevent relapse.
Tolerance develops through continued meth use, causing you to need increasing amounts of meth to obtain the same high. You may also require more meth to ward off physical and psychological withdrawal symptoms. It’s the serious physical changes in the brain that cause crystal meth addiction and make recovery challenging. Inpatient drug rehab gives you time, space and expert treatment to build a strong foundation in sobriety.
Some benefits of inpatient meth treatment include:
Time and Space From Triggers
Drug abuse is hard to kick when you face the same triggers everyday. Inpatient treatment and rehab allows you to focus on yourself and getting better. You’ll identify triggers and learn healthier ways to cope with them. You’ll practice using these new coping skills and feel more resilient when you return to everyday life.
Ongoing Access to Effective Meth Treatments
Inpatient meth addiction treatment offers 24/7 support for addiction and mental health issues. A team of experts help you determine what treatments are most effective for your issues and emotional and physical health. You have the opportunity to try a number of approaches and work with professionals to gauge your improvement.
Prevents Further Damage From Methamphetamine
Meth may already be wreaking havoc on your nervous system, physical appearance and mental health. Inpatient treatment at an addiction center can help you begin repairing some of this damage and prevent further harm. Getting the proper treatment may help avert long-term effects of meth like:
- Brain dysfunction
- Deficits in self-control
- Anxiety and depression
- Psychosis (e.g., paranoia, auditory hallucinations, mood disturbances and delusions)
- Paranoia, which can result in homicidal or suicidal thoughts
- Progressive social and occupational deterioration

- Respiratory or breathing problems (if smoked)
- Infectious diseases and abscesses (if injected)
