Amphetamine & Methamphetamine Detox Treatment Los Angeles
The Detox Process
Long-term meth use can affect a person’s dopamine receptors, affecting the way they experience pleasure. In some cases, a person may feel depressed for up to two years after quitting meth, because the brain has not yet compensated for the way meth affected their dopamine receptors. Relapse often happens for this reason, not because of any physical dependence.
It is important to go through the detox process under the care of a medical team. They can provide you with medications to relieve any physical symptoms while giving you the emotional support you need to stick with the detox process. Getting in-patient detox care can also put you on the right path to getting the proper mental health treatment.
Meth detox is a slow process, which is why it is so important to get personalized care. Visit our Los Angeles Meth detox center where you can get one-on-one support and guidance, along with a personalized treatment plan.
Once you have gone through your physical detox, you can start getting residential care. Here, you can meet with counsellors, doctors, and other medical staff members to learn more about living with sobriety, how to resist temptation, and how to cope with mood changes in a safe and healthy way. Your residential facility care team can also help you connect with resources in the community, giving you the best possible chance at living a sober life.
