If you are addicted to methamphetamine (more commonly referred to as “meth”), you have the potential to experience many different negative consequences throughout all the areas of your life. As time passes and your use of this drug continues, you run the risk of suffering severe physical, mental, and emotional destruction, as well as damage to the pleasure sensors in your brain. Sadly, one of the greatest risks of meth addiction is that long-term use has proven to change how the brain functions, which can be an irreversible effect.

If you abuse meth, you can also begin suffering from co-occurring mental health conditions such as anxiety, depression, mood disturbances, and psychotic features such as hallucinations and delusions. Additionally, physical effects can include weight loss and skin sores, as well as the development of “meth mouth,” which is a condition where severe dental decay develops.

Thankfully, at MeadowWood Behavioral Health Hospital in Wilmington, DE, offers treatment so you can begin to heal your body and mind from the destructive effects that your meth addiction has left on your life.

What to Expect

What to expect during detox from meth

If you have been abusing meth and then try to stop your use, it is likely that you will experience a period of withdrawal, which includes symptoms that can be very painful. Not only can you start having significant physical responses to the lack of meth in your body, but you can also begin having feelings of hopelessness and pervasive sadness, making it complicated to continue on without the use of meth. As a result, receiving detox at a treatment center can be the best option if you are prepared to end your meth abuse, as specific medications can be supplied to help minimize the intensity of these symptoms, and medical professionals can supervise your overall wellbeing to prevent the onset of any additional concerns.

Why Choose Detox

Detox is a service that can allow you to begin withdrawal without suffering from the negative symptoms that can occur when this process is attempted independently. A quality treatment center that offers detox services will include an environment free of addictive and mind-altering substances, as well as a team of medical and mental health professionals who will supervise your wellbeing around-the-clock. Doctors and nurses will provide medication to help decrease withdrawal symptoms, as well as a comfortable, secure atmosphere for you to detox in.


Long-term benefits of meth detox at MeadowWood in New Castle, DE

Making the decision to undergo detox and receive treatment for a meth addiction is very brave, as many are fearful of what will happen to their bodies and minds when they put an end to their meth abuse. However, knowing that through detox, meth can be removed from the body in an effective, safe manner can make all the difference in helping you finally reach out for help.

Once detox is completed, it is important that you receive continued services to address the other aspects of your meth addiction. This includes the psychological factors that have played into the development of your addiction, as well as those that were exacerbated by it. Completing detox can allow you to develop the clarity of mind that you will need to effectively engage in the treatment that will help remedy these issues.

It is important to understand that detox, while greatly beneficial, is merely just one step in the recovery process. When included into a comprehensive care plan, your overall recovery is much more attainable and manageable.
