Meth Detox Center in Louisiana

Acadiana Treatment Center in Louisiana helps individuals struggling with meth addiction build a strong foundation for long-term recovery. The expert & caring staff will help you or your loved one smoothly transition from detoxification to our residential rehab center.

Importance of Meth Detoxification

Importance of Detoxification from Meth

Methamphetamine, which is often referred to simply as meth, is an extremely powerful and highly addictive illegal stimulant. When a person ingests methamphetamine, the drug interacts with the central nervous system to elicit a sense of euphoria along with an intense energy surge. The powerful effects of meth, combined with the dramatic physical and psychological crash that can occur when these effects wear off, can quickly lead to compulsive meth abuse and addiction.

When a person becomes addicted to methamphetamine, he or she will lose the ability to limit the amount of the drug that he or she abuses or the frequency with which he or she ingests this dangerous drug. As the individual’s body adapts to the presence of methamphetamine, it will begin to crave the drug and will react with unpleasant physical and psychological symptoms if the individual attempts to stop or significantly reduce his or her meth abuse. The distress that occurs in the absence of meth is known as withdrawal.

Depending on the nature and severity of an individual’s meth abuse and addiction, his or her withdrawal symptoms may include fatigue, nausea, disrupted sleep patterns, intense cravings for meth, psychomotor agitation or retardation, irritability, depression, and paranoia.

When a person attempts to stop abusing meth on his or her own, the pain of these symptoms and the knowledge that relief can be achieved simply by ingesting meth can quickly overwhelm the individual and plunge him or her even deeper into the despair of meth abuse and addiction.

Thankfully, there is a better way. At Acadiana Treatment Center, men and women who have become trapped by methamphetamine abuse and addiction can rid their bodies of this destructive substance in a safe and comfortable environment.

Benefits of Detox

Benefits of Detox from Meth

For individuals who have been incapable of stopping their meth abuse prior to entering treatment, Acadiana Treatment Center offers a medically monitored detoxification program. Detoxification, which is commonly referred to as detox, provides a wealth of benefits, including but not limited to the following:

  • Safety and comfort: As noted above, meth withdrawal can be a harrowing experience. In Acadiana’s detox program, individuals who have been struggling with meth addiction will complete the process under the care and close supervision of experienced professionals who can protect their safety and alleviate their discomfort.
  • Experienced professionals: Fear of the unknown can be a significant obstacle to successfully withdrawing from methamphetamines. At Acadiana Treatment Center, the professionals who staff our detox program have significant experience with all aspects of the detox process and are prepared to address any contingencies that may arise. When a man or woman enters treatment at Acadiana, not only will he or she be assured of receiving clinically superior services, but he or she will also benefit from the compassionate professionalism that will dispel any fears and prepare him or her for continued success.
  • Positive mindset: Completing detox and successfully ridding one’s body of meth can be a watershed moment, transforming an individual’s mindset from one of despair and hopelessness to one of promise and positivity. Knowing that one is capable of achievement and success can be an essential weapon in the struggle to maintain lifelong sobriety.
  • Continuity of care: When a person completes detox at Acadiana, he or she can transfer directly into the next level of care without leaving our center. This eliminates the risk of immediate relapse, protects the individual from the stresses and pressures that can jeopardize his or her sobriety, and ensures seamless continuity of care. Each of these benefits can significantly increase an individual’s ability to achieve and maintain long-term recovery.
