Methamphetamine (meth, crank, ice, chalk, fire, glass, speed) is one of the most addictive stimulants that can be found out in the world today. There are many risks to the body that occur when meth is abused. Many of these effects have been seen and proven to be very dangerous. Depending on the individual, even using meth for a short period can produce both long-lasting and toxic to the brain.
Statistics and doctors often say that there is a pretty accurate assumption as to why a majority of the reasons for the high interest in these addictive stimulants leading to abuse of the drug happen, especially in minors. Many believe that the similarities in the chemistry of methamphetamine and other amphetamines such as speed, but meth has far more dangerous and long-lasting effects on the body’s central nervous system. The high potential for abuse often leads to severe psychological or physical dependence.
Meth comes in several ways and can be snorted, smoked, injected, or ingested orally. When an individual smokes or injects this drug, it gets to the brain and in the bloodstream very quickly, causing a nearly immediate and intense “rush” feeling. All these effects typically work together to magnify the addiction potential of the drug and also raises the likelihood of developing one or more of many different health complications.
In 2017, the National Survey on Drug Use and Health published articles stating that an estimated 964,000 people ages 12 and up that had a meth use disorder where treatment from an addiction recovery center like Miramar Recovery in Orange County was needed.
The benefits of residential addiction treatment are full of benefits and have been designed to help addicts from all walks of life. During your stay at Miramar Recovery, an appropriate and individualized aftercare plan will be developed by our clinical team based on the thorough assessment that would be done on day one.
Residential or inpatient treatment programs offer round-the-clock care and provide a way for the patient to live in the treatment center. With the inpatient treatment program supplied at Miramar Recovery, you’ll live in a facility with other individuals who are also in recovery and be under the supervision of our experienced staff of licensed addiction specialists. This type of care allows you to get help or assistance that is available immediately whenever it is needed rather than having to call and try to set up an appointment. Residential treatment ensures that you are under the cautious and watchful eyes of medical professionals such as doctors, therapists, and addiction specialists.
The purpose of our inpatient treatment program is to provide our patients with the tools they need to kick their addiction habits successfully. The constant professional assistance availability can often motivate and can be very encouraging to those who are suffering. Feedback and past results have shown that those who choose our inpatient treatment have a much better chance of completing the programs because of the residential setting.
Naturally, the cost of inpatient rehab programs is a bit more expensive than the other forms of treatment. Although more pricey, it is essential to know that if the addiction to meth is severe, then the program is well worth it no matter the cost. If you have health insurance, it could cover all or some of the costs associated with residential treatment. Miramar Recovery accepts most major insurance policies. Along with the many skills that will be developed during the inpatient care program, each of our clients will work with a counselor to complete a well-structured aftercare plan designed to help maintain a new and healthy lifestyle, while sober.
Miramar Recovery offers a top-rated outpatient treatment program that is an excellent followup to our inpatient program. People in our intensive outpatient program will still get the same structure and accountability seen in a formal treatment setting but returns home at the end of the day. It is also useful for people who find it extremely difficult or cannot walk away from their responsibilities at work or at home. Our outpatient treatment program is also ideal for those that do not necessarily need the round-the-clock supervision that you find in our inpatient program.
Doctors and the other counselors in our Orange County rehab center help all our patients to make goals for themselves. It is proven that learning to commit to themselves and their loved ones results in the motivation to strive to make positive changes in their lives. We encourage making long-term goals and then short-term goals that will provide them with the steps all along the way.
With nearly 15 percent of Americans facing some form of substance abuse at some point in their life, the availability and flexibility of addiction rehab programs are more critical than ever. With outpatient addiction treatment, you can receive group and individual therapy as well as help with medications. All this is done with the patient and their responsibilities in mind. So it happens with little to no significant changes in their life. With that being said, a lot depends on the types of friends or family members chosen to surround themselves with.
The overall environment at home is also important to consider when thinking of what can alter the chances of staying sober. It is questions like this to think about and consider when deciding outpatient over an inpatient program.

Medication is often an incredibly useful resource offered, especially during early recovery. Among other things, effective medication management can help minimize withdrawal symptoms and help reduce the risks of a relapse. Studies have also been shown that certain medications improve a patient’s ability to stay in treatment for the duration of the program.

We work to incorporate a combination of treatment modalities specifically designed to provide accountability, structure, and compassion.
