Addictions We Treat

Addiction treatment is not one-size-fits-all, and your treatment plan should not be either. That’s why it’s so important that your residential treatment center has experience and expertise in a range of addictions, as well as a focus on individualized care. That’s exactly what you’ll find at The Estate, one of the few stand-alone addiction treatment centers in the country.

Meth Addiction Treatment

Whether smoked, snorted, injected or taken orally, methamphetamine is the ultimate bait and switch. Also known as meth, ice, crank or crystal meth; this highly-addictive and debilitating drug can begin to destroy the user’s life from that first euphoria-inducing experience. If you suspect your loved one is using meth, you’re right to be concerned and there is help available. Our nature-based approach to meth addiction treatment offers a unique and powerful experience to guide your loved one toward a different path.

The Facts on Meth

According to the 2017 National Survey on Drug Use and Health, over 14.7 million have tried methamphetamine at least once and an average of 530 Americans per day had initiated meth use in the past year. What makes meth particularly problematic is the ease in which you can get it plus its low cost and longer high relative to other street drugs. It has also gained notoriety as a ‘club drug’ that lowers inhibitions and increases libido.

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 Risks of Meth Use
Meth use can lead to some of the most severe consequences of any street drug including:

• Damage to brain cells (neurotoxicity)
• Paranoia, anxiety and insomnia
• Deterioration of teeth
• Skin sores and infections
• Strokes
• Cardiovascular disease
• Liver, lung and kidney damage
• Birth defects when used by women during pregnancy
• Hallucinations and psychosis due to sleep deprivation

Perhaps one of the most troubling effects is that, according to the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA), research has shown meth use can create long-term brain damage similar to that caused by Alzheimer’s disease.

Common signs that your loved one may have a meth addiction include:

• Track or needle marks on the arms, legs, hands, feet or neck
• Euphoric states followed by fatigue or depression
• Respiratory problems, sinus infections or lung infections
• Unexplained cough or hoarse voice
