Methamphetamine, which is often referred to as meth, is a dangerous stimulant drug. Chemically similar to amphetamines and prescription medications such as Adderall, meth is much more dangerous than prescription stimulants. When ingested, meth produces a powerful high and excessive energy; unfortunately, these pleasurable effects can cause a person to return to the substance over and over again, resulting in methamphetamine use disorder. This disorder can be immensely disruptive, even fatal, and often cannot be overcome without professional help.
Fortunately, at The Manor Clinic, we understand the pain and danger that can result from meth misuse, but we also know that hope exists for healing. As such, we provide comprehensive treatment that gives those who are struggling with meth misuse the chance to retake their lives and experience long-term sobriety.
Why Consider Treatment at The Manor Clinic?
Meth is unquestionably a dangerous drug. Meth can impair a person’s ability to function in everyday life, interfering with personal relationships and often straining them to the breaking point. Holding down a job is almost impossible when one is using meth, and long-term use may result in unemployment, homelessness, and an inability to provide for oneself.
The drug can cause significant damage to a person’s physical health. As with many other drugs, those who use meth are always at risk of death from accident, suicide, or unintentional overdose. Meth is a dangerous drug and the consequences for its use are severe. But by enlisting the help of an experienced treatment team and a dedicated substance misuse treatment centre, it is possible to reclaim your life from this insidious substance.

Helping a loved one get treatment for meth addiction
Meth is a dangerous and deplorable drug because of the havoc it wreaks on not only individuals but also on those individuals’ friends or family members. Having watched someone struggle with this drug, you are no doubt well aware of its painful effects. Fortunately, there are a number of steps you can take to help them overcome an addiction to meth:
- Learn all you can. Spend time researching meth and learning to recognise the signs and symptoms of intoxication and overdose. Similarly, make a plan, ideally with your friend or family member, for how to handle these situations if they arise. In addition, research the treatment options available at The Manor Clinic
- Talk with them. Be open and honest about what you are seeing in them, but do so gently and patiently. Being non-judgmental and working hard to understand their struggle are ways to help increase the chance that these conversations do not turn into arguments
- Help with planning and logistics once they are ready to enter treatment. Present your list of treatment centres to them and discuss options for care. Once they have decided on a treatment centre, offer to help by arranging appointments with admissions staff and accompanying them to those appointments. During their treatment, remain an active source of support
- Perhaps most importantly, take care of yourself. Keep up with your hobbies, and seek out the support of friends and family. Try to keep a regular routine that includes sufficient sleep, a healthy diet, and regular exercise.
