Inpatient Crystal Meth Rehab Centers
Crystal meth addiction remains a problem across the United States, who struggle to slow the rampant spread of methamphetamines. And, it’s no wonder that people find themselves addicted to crystal meth. It stimulates the reward center of the user’s brains, giving them an immediate reward for use. In order to gain more rewards, users turn to chronic use, which develops into dependence and addiction.
According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, crystal meth users face an increased risk of contracting infectious diseases, like HIV and hepatitis; severe dental problems, extreme weight loss, and skin abrasions. Addicts use at such a high rate that they are in greater danger than a casual user.
To decrease the chances of overdose and negative health effects, users are advised to stop their crystal meth use. However, it isn’t enough to know that. Crystal meth is incredibly difficult to stop using and people who attempt to on their own often relapse and quite quickly. In order to give yourself the best chance at recovery, you need to participate in a professional drug addiction rehabilitation program.

Are Inpatient Rehab and Outpatient Rehab Really That Different?
Yes. Both programs do have patients participate in:
- Individual therapy
- Group therapy
- Family therapy
- Educational sessions
- Specialized sessions
- 12 step groups
- Support group meetings
However, outpatient programs only require patients to come to the center when they have a scheduled session to attend, while inpatient programs require patients to live at the center round-the-clock.
Outpatient care tends to be the less costly and inpatient care tends to offer the most in-depth care.
Is Inpatient Rehab the Right Choice?
Yes. Certainly, you can receive quality care in either category of rehab. But, given the severity of crystal meth addiction, you really need to be able to focus on your treatment and inpatient rehab will give you the greatest chance of achieving positive outcomes and will increase your retention in the program.
People often choose outpatient care because they need to remain present each day for occupational of familial responsibilities and it is great that it allows them to do that. But, those responsibilities often act as distractions, pulling focus from the important treatment that should have all of your focus. Inpatient care allows you to dedicate your full attention to getting better.
Daily life is also full of temptations, triggers, and environmental cues to use. And inpatient rehab is a drug and alcohol free space. You can’t relapse as long as you remain in the program. You also won’t have to be triggered by family members, work stress, or household issues.
Research shows that people with anxiety or mood disorders are two times more likely than the average person to have a drug addiction and the reverse is true as well. This means that you may have a co-occurring disorder, which needs to be treated alongside your addiction. An inpatient program is best positioned to do so.
Will the Program Be Private?
A lot of people look into out-of-state rehab because they are afraid people in their lives will find out that they are an addict. But, you don’t necessarily need to travel to keep your care confidential. Crystal meth rehab centers are actually required by law to maintain your privacy and those of their other patients. Two laws are in place to enforce confidentiality:
- Health Insurance and Portability and Accountability Act of 1996
- Confidentiality of Alcohol and Drug Abuse Patient Records
The crystal meth addiction treatment facility is required to keep your records locked away and to limit the number of people on the staff who can access them. In addition, they absolutely cannot discuss your case without your explicit permission.
