Crystal Meth Treatment Program
The effects of addiction to Crystal Meth are physical as well as psychological. There is no blueprint for the treatment of patients. Each case has to be evaluated on its own and has to be worked out for a specific patient. Specialized medical personnel aid in this process.
The process involves a therapeutic and educational process both for the patient and family members. The most effective treatment would involve an inpatient program to help the patient break the cycle of Crystal Meth use. This would include a complete assessment of the patient both physically and psychologically to determine the best treatment for the specific patient. The patient will be booked in at the centre and stay for the duration of the program.
The assessment is done by highly skilled medical personnel to ensure the safety of the patient during the program. The crystal meth treatment program involves the use of medication in conjunction with behaviour therapy for the patient. There is no medicine available at present to cure the addiction as such. With the constant supervision of the medical staff, an evaluation is made on the use and effect of the medicine prescribed to ensure that it enhances the treatment program.
Mental depression of the patient is severe during the withdrawal process of the program and after completion of the program and will last longer than that of cocaine users. It is therefore imperative that the patient follows a long-term crystal meth treatment program like the 12 step program to ensure the long-term recovery of the patient. In this program the patient gets exposed to group therapy and interacts with people who have the same problem as them. They help and motivate each other to overcome their addiction problem over a long period.
