Meth Rehab for Oklahoma Residents

Going Into Meth Rehab For the First Time

Thinking about going to meth rehab might be scary or intimidating, but the truth is you have already lived through the worst of it. Drug addiction is hard. It takes a toll on your health, your family, your finances, your relationships, and your life. Rehab is a place where you can get away from all that, accessing your true self, away from drugs and alcohol, healing and growing as you decide what kind of person you want to be for the rest of your life.

Going to rehab is not a failure. You are not weak, and there is nothing to be ashamed about. Meth is a powerfully addictive drug that can easily take over your life before you know it. Asking for help shows strength, drive, and courage, and will give you new opportunities to change your life for the better as you heal your body, mind, and spirit through a combination of medical, experiential, and psychological treatments in a welcoming community of like-minded people.

What Makes Meth So Addictive?

Meth is a central nervous system stimulant, as are many amphetamines. Both types of drugs provide the user with a sense of well-being and energy, resulting in enhanced sociability and talkativeness, increased activity, and decreased appetite. They both also provide feelings of pleasure. The difference between meth and other stimulants is that meth is much more potent, as more of it can pass into the brain at one time. Smoking or injecting it can cause an intense, pleasurable but brief rush, and ingesting it or snorting it can provide euphoric effects within minutes.

Dopamine is the brain that increases temporarily in the brain’s reward center. As these effects only last momentarily, many people will try to keep the high going by using more and more meth, staying up for several days, ignoring food, sleep, and life’s responsibilities in favor of drug use. Soon a physical dependence is formed, as the brain can no longer produce dopamine on its own, and the user will experience withdrawal symptoms if they try to stop using meth, leading to an addiction.

Long-Term Effects of Meth Abuse

Along with physical dependence and addiction, meth can also cause harm to your mind and body over time. The changes in the brain are serious and maybe only partially reversible. These effects include:

  • Insomnia
  • Mood swings, violent or aggressive behavior
  • Damage to brain cells and memory loss
  • Anxiety
  • Cardiovascular issues (palpitations, irregular heartbeat, heart attack, cardiac arrest)
  • Lung issues in those who smoke meth (pneumonia, chronic coughing, bronchitis)
  • Severe dental issues (tooth decay, gum disease, loss of teeth)
  • Nasal issues in those who snort meth (perforated septum, nosebleeds, chronic nasal irritation)
  • Malnutrition and extreme weight loss
  • Increased risk of stroke and Parkinson’s disease
  • Sores on the skin and track marks
  • Increased risk of contracting a communicable disease through needle sharing

There are also two major mental health concerns that can come with taking high doses and/or chronic use of meth:

  1. Anhedonia – this is the inability to feel pleasure and comes with a disinterest in previously rewarding or enjoyable activities. It is theorized that some reward centers in the brain become changed in significant ways due to meth use and may not be completely reversible.
  2. Psychosis – this is a mental illness characterized by disturbed thoughts and perceptions, in which the patient may not know what is real and what is delusion or hallucination. They may also experience paranoia and repetitive motor activity. Intravenous meth users, as well as those with a family history of psychosis are at a heightened risk for developing psychosis themselves. These symptoms generally resolve after about a week of abstinence from meth, but in some cases may become chronic, or recur during stressful periods in the patient’s life.

Physical Signs of Meth Addiction

If you are worried about yourself or a loved one and think that meth addiction may be a factor in their health or behavioral issues, you may want to look for these physical and outward signs of meth addiction:

  • Mood swings, major behavior changes that happen quickly, and aggressive or chaotic behavior
  • Fast, rambling speech, talking and moving more than usual, and having excessive energy
  • Burns on their fingers or lips, nosebleeds, track marks, and sores on the skin from scratching
  • Changes in eating and sleeping habits, with significant weight loss
  • Dilated pupils
  • Spending time with a new or unusual friend group, isolating from friends and family members

If these symptoms sound familiar, it may be a good time to begin researching Oklahoma detox and rehab centers in your area.

Drug Detox in Meth Rehab

Drug detox is the first step in any meth rehab program. It is the process your body goes through as you stop taking meth and may include withdrawal symptoms. These are generally not as intense as other drug withdrawals but can cause seizures in some people, as well as severe dehydration and other dangerous physical issues. Suicidal ideation is also a known side-effect of quitting meth, so detoxing in a 24-hour inpatient medical facility is the safest option.

Meth detox takes around one week, although everybody’s individual experiences may vary. Once you have completed your detox program it is important to move directly into a rehab program, where you will get to the underlying root of your addiction, treat any co-existing mental health issues and/or trauma, and learn behavioral, psychological, and physical changes you can make to help you stay away from drugs in the future. Rehab can be either inpatient or outpatient and can be customized to best suit your unique needs as a patient.

MAT in Meth Rehab

Oklahoma patients entering a rehab program will have the option to go into a Medically Assisted Treatment (MAT) program for detoxing safely and effectively, without suffering the uncomfortable or painful side effects of withdrawal.

MAT is a specific detox and rehabilitation plan that focuses on the whole patient rather than just the drug addiction. It uses a combination of medications, behavioral therapy, counseling, and clinical care, along with 24-hour supervision by staff to ensure no medical emergencies occur. MAT programs are customized to each patient depending on many factors like which drug(s) they are detoxing from, their level of addiction, their current level of physical and mental health, and their history of drug use. Your tailored program will be designed to help you get through the process of coming off meth as safely and comfortably as possible.

At Resurgence, our staff is trained in trauma-informed care, and you will be a part of every decision made about your treatment. There will be no surprises, and you can count on our team to answer all your questions and listen to any concerns you may have. You deserve respect and the best care possible, and we will ensure you always feel safe.

Our MAT programs include dual diagnosis treatments if there are also mental health issues or trauma that need to be addressed. This may include psychiatric medication and therapy and will aid in your ability to move forward in your addiction treatment with all issues under control.

At Resurgence, your detox will be overseen by our highly trained and professional clinical staff, who are available to you when you need them, day or night. Medications provided are all FDA-approved, and there are daily visits from a nurse practitioner to ensure your treatment and progress is going to plan. Our supervised MAT detox program will keep you safe and as comfortable as possible as you detox so that you do not suffer unnecessarily as the meth leaves your system.

Does Insurance Cover Meth Rehab?

Yes, drug rehab treatment is covered by insurance. Under the Affordable Care Act (ACA) of 2010, and the Mental Health Parity and Addiction Equity Act (MHPAEA), mental health and addiction services are considered essential health benefits. Every insurance company covers different medications and therapies, so a conversation with your insurance provider will help you determine how much of your addiction treatment is covered. At Resurgence, we also offer payment plans for cash patients. We want to help and will work with your unique situation so that you can get the help you need.
