Methamphetamine Addiction Rehab

Meth, or methamphetamine, is a highly addictive and dangerous drug. It’s hard to quit and easy to overdose on.

We believe that complete abstinence is the best meth addiction treatment if you’ve crossed the line from heavy use to addiction. With abstinence-based treatment, even those with the most serious of drug addictions can find renewed health and healing, and a truly transformative experience.

Signs and symptoms of meth drug addiction

Are you struggling with:

  • Strong cravings for meth?
  • Using more meth, and more often?
  • Withdrawal symptoms such as stomach pain, hunger, headaches, shortness of breath, tiredness, and depression?
  • Wanting to quit, detox or cut down, or trying unsuccessfully to quit?

These are some of the commons signs of methamphetamine abuse and addiction. And at Renascent, we know how hard it is to quit.

If you need help or someone to talk to about how to quit or stop meth addiction, call us for help. Your road to recovery starts here.

The Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH) reports that regular use of methamphetamines over a long period of time can lead to amphetamine psychosis. The symptoms of amphetamine psychosis include hallucinations, delusions, paranoia, and bizarre and violent behaviour.

Long-term regular use of methamphetamine can also cause:

  • Severe tooth decay (meth mouth)
  • The feeling of bugs under your skin, leading to skin-picking and sores
  • Loss of appetite and weight loss
  • Trouble sleeping
  • Increased risk of heart disease, stroke and Parkinson’s disease.

We’ve helped nearly 50,000 people recover from substance addictions and we can help you too.

What is methamphetamine?

Meth, or crystal meth, are street names for the drug methamphetamine. Meth is a type of amphetamine drug — a group of powerful stimulants or “uppers” that speed up the body’s central nervous system.

Methamphetamine is a dangerous drug. It’s highly addictive and easy to overdose on. Meth is also a synthetic drug: it’s made in illegal backroom labs with inexpensive and often dangerous ingredients. The chemicals and methods used to make meth vary widely, meaning the strength and safety of meth are often unknown.

Using meth can cause some unpleasant and unwanted effects including racing of the heart, chest pain, dryness of the mouth, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and physical tension. Other negative effects of using meth are paranoid delusions, hallucinations, aggressive behaviour, and impulsive violence.

Once the effects of meth have worn off, users often also feel tired and depressed, leading them to take meth continuously over a period of days or weeks, inviting addiction and overdose. Overdosing on meth can have serious consequences, including heart attack, stroke, and death.

The Renascent meth addiction rehab program addresses your complete individual treatment needs, supporting you through the detox process and giving you the tools you need for lasting healing and recovery.

We are proudly accredited and in good standing with the Canadian Centre for Accreditation. This means that we routinely undergo an extensive review of our practices and procedures to ensure they meet the rigorous standards for quality of care, and organizational performance. In the current unregulated marketplace of addiction treatment providers, accreditation is how we set ourselves apart from the less reputable providers who can make some of the same claims as we do, but do not provide the quality of care necessary to fulfill those claims.

As part of this intensive process, independent third-party accreditation specialists regularly spend months reviewing and evaluating every aspect of our organization, from our policies and procedures to our facilities. All staff are interviewed to ensure that they are properly certified for the work they do, and that we are routinely receiving the most up-to-date training in areas such as Non-Violent Crisis Prevention and First Aid and CPR. In this way, the accreditation specialists can determine that staff at all levels of our organization are meeting their obligations both to our clients and within the organization, with integrity. The renewal process occurs every four years, which means we are consistently upgrading to meet the Canadian Centre for Accreditation's standards.

There are three accrediting bodies that are recognized by Ontario:

  • Accreditation Canada, which specializes in hospitals and offers a primer course for organizations considering accreditation;
  • Canadian Centre for Accreditation (CCA), which is Ontario-based (but operates country-wide) and specializes in community-based agencies;
  • Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF), which is an American firm.

We chose to undergo the Canadian Centre for Accreditation's process because of their community-based specialty, their Ontario/Canadian foundation, and their philosophy, which is that they are partners with agencies and not only provide peer review audit/surveys, but also provide support to agencies in developing their protocols in order to achieve accreditation.
