Methamphetamine Addiction Treatment

Touted as a "party drug" and sought after for its intense euphoric effects and long-lasting high, methamphetamine has rapidly grown into an easily accessible drug. Meth is fast-acting — often cheaper than other illicit substances, and extremely likely to lead to an addiction.

Meth addiction treatment is usually necessary to help the individual overcome significant emotional and physical reliance on the drug. Transformations By The Gulf — located in St. Pete Beach, Florida — provides meth addiction treatment options to help clients escape from the dangerous cycles of meth abuse.

Our holistic approach to methamphetamine abuse treatment is all about healing the person as a whole — body and mind. Each individual has a different struggle with addiction, so we cater our services to the client’s specific needs with the following:

  • Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP): This program offers levels of support, including one-on-one counseling and peer support group meetings.
  • Day Treatment With Community Housing: For those who can’t commit to inpatient meth rehab, this option allows the client to manage home-life responsibilities by spending days in our community housing and returning home every night.
  • Residential Inpatient Treatment: Our residential treatment provides 24/7, structured therapy, and access to medical supervision.

A Closer Look at Methamphetamine Addiction

Methamphetamine can be snorted, smoked or injected. Once the psychostimulant reaches the system, which happens quickly, it causes an extreme flood of dopamine to the brain. This reaction generates a high that is not just powerful, but dangerously attractive to the user. The user may experience tremendous energy as well as heightened sexual libido and self-confidence.

Many people who use meth grow addicted to the extreme euphoric feeling almost immediately and continue to seek the high repeatedly. To worsen the addictive properties, tolerance can develop fast. This means the person may have to use more and more frequently to experience a high.

Here are just some of the consequences of meth use:


  • Involuntary body tremors or movements
  • Almost frantic actions and speech
  • Appetite suppression
  • Anxiety and paranoia
  • Heart palpitations
  • Hyperthermia


  • Irreversible tremors similar to Parkinson’s disease
  • Permanent cognitive damage
  • Loss of memory and attention capabilities
  • Psychotic episodes mirroring schizophrenia
  • Kidney, liver and heart damage

What Happens During a Methamphetamine Treatment Program?

It can be overwhelming to try to stop using meth by yourself. Receiving treatment for meth gives you access to the following:

  • Medically supervised detox in a safe environment
  • Multiple types of therapy, such as cognitive-behavioral therapy, group therapy and individual therapy sessions
  • Support from people who care and want to see you succeed
  • Tools to help you avoid relapse and continue your sober journey
