Learn more about meth addiction treatment at Vantage Point Behavioral Health Hospital in Fayetteville, AR
Meth is a very dangerous way to get high. The components used to make this highly addictive stimulant range from innocuous to highly toxic, and the effects meth has on the body are devastating. If you’ve been using meth, you may have initially gotten hooked on the extremely pleasurable feelings it provides. Soon after, though, you needed more of the drug to induce the same effects, often staying up for days using meth, forgoing sleep and eating, totally lost in the high. You may have shied away from your friends who just didn’t understand the wonderful things meth was allowing you to do. Eventually, your social circle of friends and loved ones may have dwindled to the point where you were left only with those with whom you got high. You may realize this is not a healthy way to live, but you may not know how to break the habit.

Through our innovative approach to addiction rehab and treatment, people who are addicted to meth emerge from our treatment center sober and ready to embark upon a new life full of joy, sobriety, and hope.
Why consider treatment for meth addiction at Vantage Point Behavioral Health Hospital in Fayetteville, AR
If you’re living with a chronic meth problem, your life has come to revolve around meth. Scoring it, using it, getting high, then recovering from meth – that’s what you do all day, every day. You may have lost your job due to erratic work performance or excessive absenteeism and have resorted to unsavory activities to further your habit. You may be putting your life at risk each time you try to score more meth, and the health-related consequences of meth use may have become quite evident. You may have developed HIV/AIDS or hepatitis from sharing needles, watched as your teeth rotted out of your mouth, and spent hours digging for “meth bugs” under your skin until your face and body became covered in open sores. Your friends and family may have left you behind, no longer willing to watch as you spiral downward. You may want to break free from meth addiction but don’t know how.
An inpatient treatment and rehab center that combines detox with medication management and behavioral therapies can be one of the most effective ways for people who use meth to learn the skills needed to lead a sober life. At our center, you’ll work with others who are also struggling with meth addiction and support one another through the process of learning to lead a life without drugs. Additionally, an inpatient treatment and rehab center will give you the chance to avoid the triggers for using and the stresses of your daily life so that you can focus on what matters most – recovery and sobriety.

Types of meth addiction treatment offered at Vantage Point Behavioral Health Hospital in Fayetteville, AR
When you first come to our center for meth addiction rehab, you’ll work closely with your treatment team as you undergo assessments that will help us get a clear picture of your challenges and determine how best to help you overcome these challenges. As meth causes a lot of damage to the body, our center’s medical evaluation will be comprehensive so that we can diagnose and begin treatment for any medical complications of your methamphetamine use. Our psychiatric evaluation will determine whether you’re struggling with any co-occurring mental health disorders such as depression or anxiety. We take the results of these evaluations and work alongside you to create an individualized plan of care that meets your current and ongoing treatment and rehab needs while at our center.
Detox may be the first step in your stay for rehab at our center if you have come to us highly addicted to methamphetamines. During detox, you’ll be monitored round-the-clock by medical personnel to help prevent complications and manage symptoms as you effectively rid your body of methamphetamines.
Medications may be used at the beginning of your stay for rehab at our center to manage any unpleasant withdrawal symptoms and slowly tapered down as you learn more adaptive ways of coping with your symptoms. Some individuals may require more long-term medication management to address any co-occurring disorders.
Individual therapy can be tremendously helpful for people who are struggling with meth addiction and chemical dependency. Using a therapeutic method called cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), your therapist will work with you to discuss ways in which your negative thoughts have impacted your behaviors. Through recognition of this pattern, you can work with your therapist to change your behaviors for the better.
Group therapy is often considered the cornerstone of meth addiction rehab and treatment, as it allows people from all walks of life who are struggling with addiction to come together and work through problems in a group setting. At our center, groups cover topics such as triggers, relapse prevention, and processing the emotions surrounding your addiction.
Family therapy can be very helpful for people who are recovering from meth addiction, as loved ones can offer a wealth of support during this difficult time. In family sessions, you can discuss ways in which your addiction has impacted others, allow loved ones to share their feelings about addiction, and educate your loved ones about addiction and recovery.
As a holistic treatment and rehab center, we offer several alternative therapies to augment your existing care plan. These experiential treatments may include:

Continuing care and levels of treatment for meth addiction
When you first come to our center for rehab, we’ll begin the process of discharge planning in order to make sure the transition to your next level of care is as seamless as possible. You’ll work with your discharge planner and loved ones to determine the next step in your recovery journey from meth addiction. Some opt to join a residential rehab program or sober living house to reinforce the skills learned at our inpatient treatment center. Others may step down into an intensive outpatient program (IOP) or partial hospitalization program (PHP). These programs allow you to work on your recovery during the day and then return home in the evenings. Still others may find referrals to our own outpatient clinic and community resources to be the best option to meet their needs.
