Methamphetamine Treatment in Orange County

A high dose of methyl produces an overwhelming rush of dopamine in the body, making it highly addictive. Feelings of euphoria are caused by dopamine, a neurotransmitter located in the brain. Learning, memory retention, and motivation are rewarded by dopamine release by the brain. Dopamine is produced in greater amounts by Methamphetamine than the brain produces naturally. In order to experience the same high, an individual who has a chemical imbalance craves progressively higher dosages of meth.


Meth Detox


It can be difficult to detox from methamphetamine at times. Meth's side effects are harsh, and they normally get worse when you don't get enough sleep. Consistent meth use increases the risk of insomnia, which can lead to paranoia and hallucinations.


Early-stage crystal meth addicts have lower levels of toxicity and may usually detox using traditional methods.


In a meth detox approach, the rehydration method is the first treatment. The rehydration system includes specific electrolyte replacement processes. Rehydration helps to alleviate withdrawal symptoms and allows the central nervous system to heal and operate normally.


Meth users are also known for their ability to go days without consuming a single calorie. Meth-induced anorexia causes extreme malnutrition. We use a low-residue diet paired with a variety of vitamins and mineral systems to help our clients regain nutrient stability.


Meth Addiction Treatment

With meth's rapid tolerance development and its cheap price, people are more likely to become addicted quickly. Natural levels of Dopamine are inadequate to satisfy a person who stops using meth.


Anhedonia results from extended periods of inability to feel pleasure. Anxiety, despair, lethargy, and insomnia are other common meth withdrawal symptoms. When confronted with these withdrawal symptoms, a meth addict would frequently reintroduce the substance to recover a sense of normalcy. Without professional assistance, it is tough to break the cycle of meth addiction.


When someone who is addicted to methamphetamines desires to stop using, they must go through a medically supervised detox. Seizures, heart attacks, and strokes can occur as a result of meth's effects on the heart and central nervous system. While recovering from meth addiction, a person should be under the supervision of skilled professionals to avoid any serious consequences.

Meth Withdrawal


Because methamphetamine has a longer half-life than other illicit narcotics, the emotional highs and lows are more intense and last longer than with most illicit narcotic withdrawals.


The most dangerous period of detox for a Crystal Meth addict is about day 7. The brain sends out many signals as the last molecule of meth exits the body, in order to refill the supply of methamphetamine.


This is what happens when a meth addict's withdrawal fight or flight response kicks in. Increased anxiety and aggressive outbursts are usually the results.


Detox from days 7 to 10 is incredibly important for a meth addict in order to overcome fight or flight processes, compulsive thoughts, and drug cravings.
