Methamphetamine Addiction Detox

Addiction to the drug group known as methamphetamines can scar every aspect of an individual's life.

La Jolla Recovery focuses on meth and methamphetamine drugs in our detox and rehab program. Accepting that meth can be highly addictive and habit-forming, we make sure that the biological needs of someone abusing meth can be attended uniquely at our detox center and later be attended to with follow-up at our rehab and outpatient. Given its toxic nature, long-term rehab might be an excellent decision to make sure the progress is sustained and that sobriety becomes the norm.

Methamphetamine Prescription

Methamphetamines will commonly be prescribed as pill form for specific medically necessary diagnosis'.

It is an adrenergic or catecholamine and CNS (central nervous system) stimulant primarily prescribed for attention deficit disorders and obesity, among other ailments. Causing a surge in dopamine and adrenaline, it provides the body with high energy levels and a feeling of euphoria, cuts off hunger, and stops melatonin production if taken late at night. This sense of joy and energy can become pleasurable and often becomes a habit. If used in a prologued manner, it may affect sleep and wake patterns, energy and distress levels, and overall feelings of well-being. Also, the capacity to store dopamine is blocked and can lead to depression, mental health symptomatology, and anxiety, among others.

Meth Detox

The effects of meth require specific attention and supervision, making sure sleep and comfort can be achieved in the first day.

At La Jolla Recovery drug detox we can make sure the anxiety and physical discomfort is minimized while having the professional supervision of clinical and medical needs. After detox, rehab can begin to have social components and a schedule to revive sleep and wake cycles, provide a stimulating environment next to the beach and ultimately start a journey experiencing sobriety.

Meth Side Effects

When meth is utilized by injection or smoked, it can cause a sense of prolonged well-being and energy.

When meth is inhaled or swallowed, this sense of euphoria is gradual and tapered. It is not uncommon for someone to begin snorting or taking orally and then progress to injection or smoking. The effects can last up to half a day or 12 hours, creating a sense of hyper-vigilance and loss of appetite. Lack of sleep and eating affects brain patterns and cognitive health and can lead to paranoia, hallucinations, and malnutrition. It is not uncommon for the skin and bones, including the death of meth abusers, to deteriorate and show breakdown at a synthesis level. What may begin as a tool to work more, be productive, lose weight, or stay up all night can later become a crutch to wake up and function, leading to substance abuse and addiction and impacting all areas of life.

From social to emotional, bonds are broken, and jobs or schools can cease, leading to a life torn from relationships and overall quality. The rates of admissions in rehab due to methamphetamines continue to grow, and the shipping of the main ingredients to produce meths, such as ephedrine and pseudoephedrine, have flooded the United States with a cheap and powerful chemical that eats away the livelihood of many times well-intentioned individuals seeking a way to improve their quality of life.

Meth Support

Once rehab for meth is completed, outpatient drug programs for methamphetamines can begin and have a peer of groups that share a similar background, provide healthy accountability and continue to work or school gradually as monitored by our recovery staff.

Residential Inpatient Program

A few days of detox are not enough to bring stability after meth addiction. That’s why at La Jolla Recovery, we have long-term phase programs that can attend every specific phase of the rehabilitation process. At our inpatient residential treatment, it is possible to have a safe home supervised while attending therapy, groups, and social support groups such as AA or NA. Frequent drug and alcohol testing makes it safe and structured to develop a new life of waking up, sleeping, and socializing with stimulating people in a beautiful beach setting of San Diego County.

The journey to recovery from methamphetamine addiction cannot be accomplished over a few days. This is why La Jolla Recovery has developed extensive long-term rehabilitation programs to meet each individual’s needs. Our inpatient residential treatment provides a safe and secure environment for patients to receive therapy and follow the guidance of their support groups, such as AA and NA. To ensure an effective and successful process, frequent drug and alcohol testing is conducted in our surrounding beach setting of San Diego County. Here, we offer our clients the opportunity to transform their lives as they wake up, sleep and engage with stimulating people during their recovery journey at La Jolla Recovery.

Gender Specific Programs

Feeling safe should be a value when in rehab or detox. That’s why at La Jolla Recovery, we have perfected our women’s rehab and men’s program, ensuring they can live separately with the suitable cultural sensitivity and needs to be met.

Safety and security are top priorities at La Jolla Recovery. To ensure that our clients feel safe during their recovery process, we have created two distinct and tailored programs; a women’s rehab program and a men’s program. Each offers the necessary cultural sensitivity and provides the right therapeutic environment for individuals to progress in their rehabilitation. Our home-like setting allows members to live comfortably in separate areas while still having access to all the amenities and services they require while undergoing treatment. We strive to provide an atmosphere where individuals can find peace of mind and focus on their healing journey.


We’re not only LGBT-friendly; we have LGBT staff and allies. We live to provide the highest standards in attention to every cultural need, including gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender-specific requirements. From housing that attends their sexual identity, La Jolla Recovery is proud to be at the forefront of evidence-based treatment for addiction that is culturally specific and respectful of personal preference and orientation.


Our IOP or outpatient program continues an integrative rehab after meth addiction. Let our outpatient drug rehab program in San Diego provide an inspiring ambiance with experiential activities for the latter days of rehabilitation. Suppose you suffer from a dual diagnosis, such as a co-occurring mental health disorder (depression or panic disorder). In that case, we are more than glad to attend to your needs with evidence-based therapies and tools to help you regain momentum after discharge. Are you suffering from another substance abuse addiction such as alcoholism or heroin? We have the expertise to detox effectively and transition smoothly into rehab.


Once rehab is completed, we recommend the continuation of sobriety with sober living. One of our recovery staff can suggest local sober living homes to have a safe and drug-free environment while continuing meetings and contacting a case manager.
