Learn More About Meth Addiction Treatment
Learn more about meth addiction treatment at Options Behavioral Health System in Indianapolis, IN
Methamphetamines are highly addictive stimulants that are most commonly prescribed by physicians to help manage the symptoms of ADHD and narcolepsy. Street meth is made in makeshift laboratories using over-the-counter cold medicine as the main ingredient. Other substances such as lighter fluid, battery acid, lye, ammonia, ether, drain cleaner, paint thinner, rubbing alcohol, red phosphorous, iodine, and brake and engine cleaner are also used in the production of meth and are highly toxic substances.
Meth can be found in an odorless white powder or crystal rock form. The powder can be snorted or smoked, while the rock is liquefied and injected into the veins. Once consumed the individual is met with a rush, which is caused by a surge of dopamine and serotonin in the brain. These effects can last up to twelve hours at a time. When the high eventually wears off the individual is then met with a crash where they are left feeling irritable and exhausted. After repeated use, an individual develops a tolerance to meth, meaning that they will need more of the substance in order to get the desired effect. Chronic methamphetamine users will eventually have trouble feeling pleasure without the use of the drug, which leads to further drug abuse.
Many individuals who are addicted to substances like meth are unable to successfully quit on their own. The best approach to getting clean is to seek help from a professional rehab center and enroll in a substance abuse treatment program like the ones offered at Options Behavioral Health. Our friendly staff is not here to judge you for having difficulty with meth, but instead will do all that they can to help you live a productive and happy life, free from drugs.

Types of Treatment
Types of meth addiction treatment offered at Options Behavioral Health System in Indianapolis, IN
When you first get to Options you will be completely assessed in order to determine the most appropriate level of care. The assessment, conducted by a mental health professional, will provide us with a clear picture of your psychological and medical needs. Based on the results of your assessment our treatment team will work with you to develop a treatment plan.
If you have become physically dependent upon meth, you will first need to go through the detoxification process to remove all substances from your body. During the detox process you will receive around-the-clock monitoring while toxic substances are gradually removed from your system. Only when all substances are removed from your body are you ready to begin the therapeutic process.
Initially medication will be used during detox to help manage the unpleasantness of withdrawal symptoms. Additionally, medication may be used in the beginning to help control any symptoms from co-occurring disorders that may exist. For some individuals, once they learn better coping skills they can wean off the medication. Others who have additional symptoms may need medication on a long-term basis. Medication management will be handled by your therapists and will be continuously evaluated.
Individual therapy provides alone time with a therapist where sessions can be spent digging deeper into the underlying issues that may have caused the development of your meth addiction. You will also have the opportunity to discuss any specific concerns you have while learning better coping mechanisms.
Group therapy is an effective form of therapy that we use at Options. Through group therapy individuals can reach out to others who are struggling with substance abuse problems and see that they are not alone. Group members can work together learning new coping skills, identifying triggers, and discussing ways to prevent relapse.
Family therapy is a large component of the recovery process because it provides an environment in which damaged family relationships can be put back together. During family sessions you and your family members will discuss how meth addiction has affected their lives. Additionally, all family members will learn more about what addiction is and what they can do to be helpful in the recovery process.
Continuing care and levels of treatment for meth addiction
Upon completion of our inpatient program you will meet with our discharge planners to determine your next step of care. An aftercare plan will be put in place in order to ensure continuity of care and make sure there is no lapse in your treatment. If your next step is returning home, we will provide you with referrals for therapists and community resources so that you can have the support you need to stay sober. Another option is to participate in a longer-term rehab program, where you can build upon the foundation and success you have created with Options staff. Our discharge planners will do their best to help you find a program that will work with your insurance and locate the best program possible.
