Detoxing from methamphetamine can be quite difficult, as meth detox presents with a challenging set of symptoms that are somewhat unique amongst drugs of abuse. Methamphetamine can cause physical and chemical changes in the brain that manifest as severe psychological symptoms during withdrawals, which means that proper mental health support is of paramount importance during detox. It’s quite common for those addicted to methamphetamine to experience a wide range of physical and psychological withdrawal symptoms such as:
In many cases, those who use methamphetamine also use other drugs and/or alcohol and our client screening process takes this in to account when our treatment team collaborates on a treatment plan. Combining alcohol with methamphetamine can lead to more severe and dangerous withdrawal symptoms such as seizures, delirium tremens and severe depression. It is especially important for our clinical staff to evaluate our methamphetamine detox clients thoroughly because many of them present with co-occurring psychological disorders commonly found in those who use methamphetamine such as severe depression, agitation and hallucinations. At Inland Detox, we focus equally on our client’s social, physical and psychological needs as it pertains to methamphetamine detox. We’ve come to find that detox programs that focus equally on treating each domain of methamphetamine addiction during the detox phase of treatment leads to the best possible treatment outcomes.
Our clients should always expect to be treated with dignity and respect in a caring, 24 hour, round-the-clock, clinically supervised upscale environment. Our residential meth detox facility is located on multiple acres in a secluded, peaceful environment, perfect for people to recover in peace and seclusion.
Before you’re admitted, you’ll go through a brief intake process where Admissions staff will learn more about you so our clinical staff members can create the best possible treatment plan for your needs. While the focus of detox is stabilization and mitigation of physical withdrawal symptoms, our meth detox also includes both group and individual counseling to begin identifying each individual’s triggers and causes of addiction. This helps to kick-start the recovery process and provides a lead-in to further levels of treatment where counseling is more intensive.
Our methamphetamine detox clients stay with us typically for less than a week. During this time, our goal is to help you coordinate your next steps in the treatment process. Many of our clients go on to long-term residential drug and alcohol rehab programs or transition to intensive outpatient programs. We will not only assist you in your transition to aftercare, but we will arrange for transportation from our facility to any Southern California treatment facility or major airport. Our ultimate goal is to not only provide the highest possible care for our clients, but to ensure they are safely transported to their next level of care.
If you or someone you know needs help with addiction to methamphetamine, meth detox is the best way to start the treatment cycle. Call Inland Detox for admissions information today at (888) 739-8296.
Client assessment is a multi-stage process that begins when you first call and continues during the onsite intake process. When you call Inland Detox you’ll speak to an Admissions Advisor that will help you understand the admissions process. They’ll ask you about your needs and help you determine if Inland Detox is a right fit for you. Upon admission, you’ll be assessed by staff that will identify your immediate needs and they will work with clinical staff to design a custom treatment plan.
Client stabilization is the second goal of effective detox treatment. At this stage of care, our Clinical Director addresses the client’s immediate needs while taking in to account the unique history of each client. Inland Detox staff will coordinate efforts with your primary physician or a local physician if you need to continue a course of prescribed medication or begin a new course of medication in the process of detox.
Our clinical staff members design a custom treatment plan for each client of Inland Detox. Our treatment plans take in to consideration the substance abuse history of each client, their immediate medical, psychological, nutritional and social needs as well. Our understanding of the detox process is that it is the first step towards recovery. As such, our clinical and supportive staff members work in concert to suggest effective care upon discharge. This may include finding appropriate long-term residential care provider or making a transition to outpatient care.
When it’s time for our clients to transition from our detox program to their next level of care, we insure a smooth transition. Our clinical and administrative staff members will coordinate travel from our facility to our client’s next destination. Our goal is to insure that from the time our client’s reach us until the time they transition to their next stage in life, we are with them the entire way.
