Addictions We Treat
Meth Addiction Treatment
The Facts on Meth
Meth causes the brain to release high levels of dopamine in its reward areas which strongly reinforces continued use of the drug to repeat the experience, opening the door to tolerance, dependency and ultimately addiction.
Meth addiction is the inability to stop using regardless of the harmful physical, psychological or social consequences.
The Estate Approach
Meth Abuse Treatment at the Estate
It’s a therapeutic experience that is research-based and offers important recovery lessons about trust, communication, perseverance and team-building along with other tools for overcoming obstacles to sobriety. We also offer traditional meth addiction treatment including CBT, DBT and EDMR as part of our individualized care.
The Risks of Meth Use
• Damage to brain cells (neurotoxicity)
• Paranoia, anxiety and insomnia
• Deterioration of teeth
• Skin sores and infections
• Cardiovascular disease
• Liver, lung and kidney damage
• Birth defects when used by women during pregnancy
