Meth Rehab in Thailand
Meth Rehab in Thailand
Methamphetamine, crystal meth, or meth as most people call it, is one of the most addictive substances ever introduced into society. Starting off primarily in the gay community as a “party drug” on both the east and west coast of the USA, it is a neurotoxic stimulant and long-term users become heavily addicted and suffer severely. Many people have seen the images on the internet of users’ before and after photos, the severe aging of their faces, the rot and deterioration of their teeth, the opens sores on their skin. That anyone could come to look like that and still continue to use is testimony to the addictiveness of this truly horrific drug. The substances used to make this drug are alarming in themselves, such as battery acid, drain cleaner and antifreeze. Meth is made in illegal labs both within the borders of most countries but, additionally, many super labs have been set up by drug cartels in countries where they tend to operate more freely, such Mexico and parts of South America and Asia.
Since meth is one of the most addictive substances you’ll ever encounter, meth addiction treatment truly needs the addict’s commitment to getting clean and staying clean. The detox from meth is very different than from alcohol or opiates. With a heroin detox, drugs like Suboxone are often used to help the addict detox in stages, whereas meth addicts often just sleep as their bodies begin the healing process. Once awake you may be prescribed some form of mild medication to help with anxiety, or sleep, or depression, for example. Treatment is focused on educating you on how your addiction affected your body, as well as working on the personal psychological issues involved and learning to find some form of spirituality, well being and becoming reconnected to life and loved ones. You will find you develop very strong relationships with the others you go through treatment with, as well as the LANNA staff. Often these relationships last a lifetime as these people become part of your support group when you leave Thailand and return home.
