Crystal Meth Detox

Ice, glass, crank, shizzo, shards, tina, the poor man’s cocaine; no matter the street name, crystal meth is a poisonous, highly addictive stimulant that affects the brain.  

When smoked or injected, crystal meth increases the dopamine in your bloodstream and brain, and it immediately sends an intense rush of euphoria that can last for up to 30 minutes, while the high can last up to 12 hours.  

Meth use affects your physical and emotional health, as well as your behavior. To learn how you can detox from crystal meth today, call us immediately at (877) 392-3342. Our admissions counselors are available for confidential chat 24/7. 

Effects of Crystal Meth Abuse

When you use meth it’s common to experience a binge and crash pattern. The pleasurable effects occur immediately but after the come down, there is more of a desire to keep the high by taking more of the drug.  

The binging pattern is known as a “run”, where you are likely to go without food and sleep while taking higher and higher doses of crystal meth.  

This can last anywhere from three to fifteen days, causing more health problems. If you are experiencing runs, then now is the time to detox.

What to Expect in Detox

Our board-certified doctors, nurses and therapists are with you every step of the way throughout detoxification. We provide the attention and care you need to thrive in recovery.  

While in detox for crystal meth, you may experience the following:  

• Exhaustion

• Long hours asleep 

• Some sadness  

However, the effects of withdrawal can vary depending on how long you’ve been abusing meth and if you’ve also used it along with alcohol and other drugs. 

A medically safe detox is crucial to your recovery. Our goal during detox is to help you rid your body of all chemical toxins and restore your health. 

Why Should You Detox?

Without the proper detox, you could be putting yourself and others in danger. If you continue to abuse crystal meth, the long-term side effects can be much more serious. 

As you use more and more of the drug at higher doses, over time you could experience the following long-term effects: 

• Respiratory problems

• Memory Loss

• Aggression 

• Psychotic behavior (i.e. hallucinations, hearing voices)

• Damage to the cardiovascular system 

• Extreme weight loss/malnutrition 

• Severe dental problems (meth mouth)

• Skin sores from scratching

Then, there are the more life-threatening effects of meth abuse, including:

• Contracting Hepatitis B and C from contaminated needles and unsafe sex

• Contracting infectious diseases like STDs from unprotected sex

• Contracting HIV/AIDS through needles and unsafe sex

• Suicidal thoughts and behavior

• Death from overdose

If you would like to detox from crystal meth and other illicit drugs, we are here to help. Please call us immediately at (877) 392-3342. We will give you the proper treatment you deserve. Our admissions counselors are ready to answer your questions 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. 

Dangers of Quitting on Your Own

Those who inject meth and other drugs are more likely to experience severe withdrawal symptoms. Quitting crystal meth on your own, means you could be putting yourself at risk for more dangerous side effects such as: 

• Stronger cravings

• Psychosis

• Self-harm 

• Suicidal thoughts 

Withdrawing from meth and other drugs on your own may cause more severe medical problems and psychological issues; therefore, an effective detox with 24-hour medical support is crucial to your recovery.
