Methamphetamine Detox Program
Methamphetamine is a potent and extremely addictive drug that affects the central nervous system. Commonly known as meth, ice, crank, or crystal meth, it is one of the most commonly abused drugs in the United States. Being a stimulant amphetamine drug, the use of meth creates a sense of euphoria, excitement, increased wakefulness and physical activity, and alertness for extended periods of time.
Withdrawal from the use of meth can be physical, emotional, and potentially life-threatening if unassisted by trained medical, clinical, and nursing professionals. Treatment for methamphetamine use, abuse, dependence, or addiction may vary depending on the severity of addiction and on an individual’s needs. Each patient’s needs are assessed and discussed during evaluation and admission at The Retreat of Broward.
The detoxification process begins as each patient is carefully monitored by experienced medical and clinical staff. Withdrawal from methamphetamines can be overwhelmingly uncomfortable – let us help you.
