It's never too late, Break the Addiction

Methamphetamines Treatment Center

At Sprout Health Texas, we approach every treatment slowly and carefully under medical supervision.

Methamphetamine, also known as crystal meth, is extremely powerful and addictive stimulants. It is the 4th leading cause of substance abuse and contributes to at least 120,000 substance abuse problems each year. Meth can be smoked, snorted, ingested or injected. It stimulates the brain and causes an intense but quick euphoric rush. Because of its short-lived high, users are prone to abuse and addiction. Meth significantly affects cognitive functions as well as the brain’s ability to subdue addictive or habitual behaviors.

Meth Causes Significant Damage

Meth use and addiction have the power to destroy many aspects of life, including home, work, social and love.

Chronic meth use causes chemical and molecular changes in the brain, which affect motor and learning skills. The other effects of meth include:

  • Increased wakefulness and physical activity
  • Decreased appetite
  • Rapid heart rate and irregular heartbeat
  • Increased respiration
  • Increased blood pressure
  • Extreme weight loss
  • Severe dental problems
  • Skin sores caused by scratching
  • Increased risk of contracting infectious diseases

Treating Meth Addiction At Sprout Health Texas

At Sprout Health Texas, we approach every treatment slowly and carefully under medical supervision. Our treatments begin with a detoxification process where patients will experience withdrawal symptoms. This phase will be uncomfortable and at some times, hard to bare but we can provide certain medications to help ease the pain.

After the detoxification phase, we will then proceed to the treatment program which has been developed to meet each patient’s individual needs.

Our programs include many therapeutic modalities to help combat addictive behaviors. Cognitive behavioral therapy is one of the most effective treatments for meth users. It teaches our patients how to identify their addictive behaviors and learn new ways to suppress their triggers. We help retrain our patient’s brains in order for them to react differently in certain situations. We want them to learn how to suppress their addictive behaviors and learn positive coping mechanisms.

Other therapies we offer include experiential and groups/family sessions. We believe that group and family therapy are extremely important for a recovery process. They provide a large network of support for our patients during and after their treatment. Recovery does not end when our treatment ends; patients must continually work on their sobriety and support groups can be an effective tool during that process.
