Recover from Meth Addiction at Beachside Rehab
The critically acclaimed TV series Breaking Bad introduced its audience to the local lab in America and the world that surrounds it, and provided us with a glimpse into how addiction can destroy human beings and their families. But there is hope for those addicted to this destructive drug – in rehab. (Or ice rehab, as it is sometimes called.)

What Is Meth?
Labs commonly use ingredients from over-the-counter cold medicines and fertilizer as the base – to “cook” batches of the drug, and add toxic substances such as acetone, commonly found in paint thinner and nail polish remover; hydrochloric acid; and other highly dangerous substances.
Who Takes Meth?
Users are hesitant to enter rehab, as only about 10% of entrants to treatment facilities for addiction enter rehab though most drug rehab centers include rehab programs.
How Does Meth Make You Feel?
When high, you may believe that you are more powerful than you usually are, and that you are capable of doing more difficult things than usual, which can lead to you being overly aggressive and entering complicated, even dangerous, situations.
What Are The Risks Of Using Meth?
If you begin to use, you can expect to lose your appetite and, as a result, lose weight. You may also find it difficult to sleep, and experience nausea, restlessness, irritability, and increased aggressiveness.
Occasionally, users become confused, anxious, paranoid, and even experience hallucinations and death. Famously, Fergie, lead singer for the Black Eyed Peas, described her “bad trip” – when she came to believe that the FBI was chasing her – publicly so that others might learn from her experience and say no to the drug.
Long-term Effects Of Using Meth
It damages the human brain, causing symptoms similar to Alzheimer’s disease, stroke, and epilepsy, and also causes depression and psychosis. Scientific research has found that using can permanently change your personality and your level of intelligence.

How Is Meth Addiction Treated?
While there are medicines designed to assist the body during detox being tested, there are currently none available in America for use in an inpatient meth rehabilitation facility.
After medical detox, the best rehab for addiction involves talk therapy. There are various kinds of therapies available, such as cognitive behavioral therapy or CBT, contingency management, motivational enhancement therapy, individual counseling, group therapy, and creative expression therapy.
The medical community has achieved a consensus in supporting CBT in recovery programs as evidence has shown it achieves positive outcomes. CBT is a focused program that teaches you how to unlearn addictive behaviors and to discover new healthy ways to behave. Also, CBT is a time-limited program, which has proven to be an advantage in treating addictions, as it allows clients to work toward concrete goals in specific time frames.
Aftercare refers to the support you have access to after leaving your meth rehab center and may involve 12-step programs, therapy, group counseling, sober living homes, and alternative programs like SMART Recovery.
Should you live in a remote area or for another reason are unable to attend a SMART Recovery meeting, you can join an online meeting: 12-step programs like AA also offer online meetings, as do individual therapists.
One More Thing
In rehab for meth, like that provided by Beachside Rehab, you will have treatment options that allow you to unearth the reasons behind your addiction and to finally begin to build a life where you are able to make decisions for yourself again.
There is a Chinese proverb that is apt and inspiring for those who have decided to tackle their meth addiction: “The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The second best time is now.”
