About methamphetamine addictionMethamphetamine addiction wreaks havoc on the addicted individual as well as the family members and friends around them. It tears families apart and in some cases, eventually kills the addicted individual. Methamphetamine operates by stimulating the central nervous system and creates a euphoric feeling that can last from 4 to 24 ours in duration. But this euphoria is the only benefit when you consider the negative consequences that result.
Methamphetamine addiction creates adverse emotional, mental, and physical consequences which can affect the individual on both the long and short term. There are literally dozens of negative side effects and damaging consequences that result from ongoing addiction. For example, the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) states that "People who use methamphetamine long-term may experience anxiety, confusion, insomnia, and mood disturbances and display violent behavior. They may also show symptoms of psychosis, such as paranoia, visual and auditory hallucinations, and delusions (for example, the sensation of insects crawling under the skin)." Also, NIDA warns that "Long-term methamphetamine use has many negative consequences for physical health, including extreme weight loss, severe dental problems (“meth mouth”), and skin sores caused by scratching."
How Narconon Freedom Treatment Center Addresses Meth Addiction
Narconon Freedom Center provides a unique, wholly drug-free address to methamphetamine addiction. It helps the addict through withdrawal, using nutrition and special exercises to reduce the physical and emotional discomfort which typically accompanies this step. Methamphetamine use severely depletes vital nutrients often creating severe deficiencies. When a person stops using the drug, they experience bodily aches and pains from the deficiencies which had been hidden behind the chemical curtain of drug use. Thus Narconon's use of vitamins and minerals during withdrawal is especially important for methamphetamine abusers. It helps to handle the deficiencies and, thereby, lessen the pain of withdrawal.
The Narconon New Life Detoxification step follows. This is carefully developed low-heat sauna regimen which utilizes nutrition and exercise to help the addict's body cleanse out stored drug residuals from years of abuse. Narconon clients who have completed this program often tell how it freed their ability to think clearly, removing a "drug haze" which they often had not even realized existed. Similarly they commonly mention how they have increased energy and ability to do things. And, most importantly, they often say that this step reduced or eliminated their cravings to return to drug or alcohol use.
The Program then continues with a series of courses to provide the individual with knowledge and tools to enabling the person to regain control of their life and move forward to the achievement of their own goals and a drug-free life.
