What is the best amphetamines detox?

Whether you became addicted to amphetamines after recreational use or while taking an amphetamine as directed by your doctor, overcoming an addiction to this substance requires an incredible amount of effort and dedication. For many people, recovering from an addiction to amphetamines will be impossible without professional assistance. However, before you can enter a professional treatment program, you must first undergo detoxification to eliminate the remaining amphetamines from your system. During this process, you may experience significant withdrawal symptoms and cravings that make you uncomfortable and likely to relapse. To ensure that your detoxification goes as smoothly as it can, you may decide to enter a medically-supervised amphetamines detox program.

Identifying the Best Programs

Not all amphetamines detox programs are the same. To give yourself the best chance of making a full recovery, you need to choose a detox program that can help you get through the detoxification process and begin your journey to sobriety. When comparing various amphetamines detox facilities, consider the following issues:

  • Program type - Amphetamines detox programs may be inpatient or outpatient. Depending on your preferences, one type of program may be better for you than the other.
  • Services - Some treatment centers offer different services than others. For example, some treatment centers may provide medication to help with the symptoms of withdrawal, while others may not.
  • Location - Amphetamines detox centers are available all around the country. Depending on your preferences, you may choose a program close to home or one that allows you to travel to another location for the sake of privacy.
  • Cost - The cost of amphetamines detox programs will vary based on the nature of the services, the location and more. In addition, while some programs may accept payments from insurance companies, others may not.
  • Reputation - Some detox programs have better reputations than others. Learn about the reputation of various programs by researching them online.
  • Success Rate - A program's success rate tells you how effective the program is. Many programs publish their success rates online. You can also learn about success rates by calling treatment facilities directly to inquire.

Making a Choice

As you compare different amphetamines detox programs, remember to consider each of the factors listed above. If you cannot find a program that meets all of your requirements, choose the program that excels in the areas that matter most to you.
