Getting help for addiction takes courage and strength, especially for men, who are more likely to go without treatment for a longer period of time compared to men.

Methamphetamine is one of several addictive substances in both medication and drug forms. As a medication, it has usefulness for people affected by a couple of different health conditions. As a drug, it’s commonly known as meth, a substance linked to a wide range of major health problems. In its legal and illegal forms, methamphetamine has the potential to produce cases of stimulant use disorder. If you or your loved one develop symptoms of this disorder, professional treatment is your best recovery option.

Methamphetamine Facts

Like its parent substance, amphetamine, methamphetamine is a laboratory-made chemical stimulant. All stimulants produce certain effects when you take them. The chief effect is an increase in the working speed of your central nervous system. The increase does such things as:

  • Make you feel more alert
  • Decrease feelings of fatigue
  • Promote increased physical activity
  • Trigger a decline in your normal appetite

Addictive stimulants like methamphetamine also create an exaggerated form of pleasure called euphoria. 

Prescription Methamphetamine

Legal methamphetamine is produced in licensed pharmaceutical labs. Doctors prescribe it in tablet form as an ingredient in some ADHD medications. In this context, it can help increase focus and decrease hyperactivity. You may also receive a prescription product as a short-term treatment for serious obesity.

Illegally Produced Meth

Only a modest amount of the methamphetamine consumed in America is legally produced. Instead, most people use it illegally as the street drug known as meth. In this form, it may enter your system via:

  • Smoking
  • Snorting 
  • Injection into a vein

The basic effects of legal methamphetamine and illegal meth are the same. However, street meth does not come in controlled strengths or dosages. This means that you can’t easily judge its potency in advance. Illegal meth may also contain impurities that affect you in unexpected ways.

The Signs

How Does Meth Use Trigger Substance Problems?

Powerful stimulants like meth have the potential to produce symptoms of substance abuse and addiction. When these two issues are triggered by meth, they qualify as examples of stimulant use disorder. What leads to the onset of this condition?

Most people who misuse methamphetamine do so because they want to experience more of its euphoric effects. However, these effects become harder to achieve over time. Why? You gradually grow more and more tolerant of the drug/medication. 

In response to this rising tolerance, some people increase their meth doses or take it more often. Over time, that pattern of increasing use and rising tolerance can leave you dependent on methamphetamine. Soon, you may find yourself compelled to obtain more meth so you can keep using it. You may also stop caring about what you must do to satisfy your cravings for it. That compulsion and lack of concern over consequences are classic addiction indicators. 

Even if you never reach an addicted state, recurring meth use can significantly decrease your ability to function. This diminished, non-addicted state is referred to by experts as diagnosable methamphetamine abuse. Addiction and abuse symptoms can affect you simultaneously in some cases.

The Unique Effects of Meth in Men

Methamphetamine affects men and women in largely the same way. However, there are also significant differences between the two groups. For example, men use the drug/medication more often than women. As a man, you’re also more likely to need emergency treatment for a meth-related health concern. And crucially, in substance treatment, men sometimes find it harder to recover from stimulant use disorder. This fact highlights the potential importance of finding a dedicated men’s meth rehab in Colorado.

The leadership and staff were committed to my success.

Paul is a man of integrity which flows through his team. I have been to other recovery programs and HPR stands far above them all. The small group structure offers a more intimate and personalized experience. This was so much more beneficial to my recovery than facilities preaching a "one-size-fits-all" solution to larger and fragmented groups. It was like having personal and knowledgeable therapists dedicated to me for a full month! They went out of their way to understand the root of my challenges and construct a path for improvement that is unique and relatable to me. This was a huge benefit!

It saved my life, in every sense.

I spent a month at Healing Pines Recovery. The actual location itself is unreal. A beautiful cabin lodge, with gorgeous scenery. The rooms are large, queen beds, very comfortable! Great bathrooms with great showers! There is a pool table, slam jam, (Christine! 😉 frisbee golf, and daily access to a nearby gym. The property also has a pickle ball court that was used daily, Zoey the counselor beat us men constantly!

Clay M

My experience with Healing Pines Recovery has been wonderful.

My husband was their client, and they helped him be able to help himself. He is doing amazing! I think the combination of counseling, physical labor, meditation, AA, and just the beauty of the place itself all had a very positive impact on him. They really cared about him, and that did not stop just because he came home. Also they have counseling for the families and it has really helped me a lot. Heather is awesome! I thank God that we had them in our lives when we were most vulnerable.

We wanted to share our gratitude to the staff.

Our son was under the care of Healing Pines recently and we wanted to share our gratitude to the staff. There were many challenges in his pursuing treatment, and thankfully Paul and Heather C helped us navigate all of them skillfully with patience and compassion.

You'll get your life back!

Healing Pines Recovery is/was instrumental in setting me up for long term success in my recovery journey. I've been to treatment centers in the past and HPR is nothing like anything I've attended before. They're very small, intimate, and hands-on approach to recovery was exactly what I was looking for when seeking treatment. I knew that a large, one size fits all program like those offered by many other treatment centers in Colorado wouldn't provide me with the help I desperately needed. Paul and his Team are incredible and I would highly recommend HPR to anyone who needs help starting their recovery journey. Big shout out to James for all of his guidance during my time at HPR. His grace, knowledge, understanding, and direction were/are key to my continued success in recovery. One HUGE piece of the puzzle I love is the after care I've received from HPR... I am in constant contact with Paul, James, and many other staff members through the their alumni programs and it has helped me so much with life after HPR. This program was truly a miracle in my life and I know it will be for many other men struggling with addiction and/or alcoholism. You'll get your life back!

This is truly a great recovery facility.

My learning experience here was something I’ll take with me throughout my whole life. The staff here will always be a part of my family and I am beyond thankful for everything they have done and continue to do for my well-being.

Gunnar P

I can't speak more highly of Healing Pines Recovery & Addiction Center.

It is located in a beautiful Colorado location with lots of outdoor activities and fresh air. They have a very knowledgeable and professional staff that goes above and beyond to meet your needs.

Riley K

I couldn’t have been at a more amazing place to begin this journey.

Seriously an amazing place. Everything from how beautiful the house and the property it sits on down to every person staffed there was nothing less than perfect. More than highly recommended in every sense. If you’re reading this and trying to find the right place for treatment and recovery I would absolutely look no further. Everyone’s recovery is different and we all need a comfortable place with people we can trust through this battle, healing pines understood that everyone’s path is different and they 100% cater to that. I couldn’t have been any luckier with finding Healing Pines. I won’t go any deeper and start to thank everyone there individually, But I want to express my gratitude to everyone on the HEALING PINES TEAM. Without you all, my path in sobriety would not look anywhere near the way it looks today. Seriously from the bottom of my heart thank you!

How a Meth Treatment Center in Colorado Can Help You Recover

Medications are sometimes used in substance treatment to help achieve recovery goals such as:

  • Completing the process of substance withdrawal
  • Staying substance-free now and in the future

However, no available medications can provide this kind of support for people recovering from meth problems. Instead, all of the primary treatment options are forms of psychotherapy. As a rule, therapies used in rehab programs focus on helping you change behaviors that support abuse/addiction. What kinds of therapies can help you make progress during meth recovery? The list of useful methods includes:

Behavioral therapy and a 12-step program can also be combined with additional forms of support such as:

  • Drug testing
  • Education efforts that help you and your family learn more about substance abuse and addiction
  • Involvement in health-promoting recreational activities

You may also benefit from certain secondary treatments that can broaden and deepen your recovery experience. For example, yoga and meditation may help you feel more focused and centered. Animal-assisted therapy can help you connect better with the world outside yourself. These kinds of holistic options don’t take away from your time in psychotherapy. Instead, they fit into the rest of your recovery plan and expand the potential advantages of that plan. 

Healing Pines’ Colorado meth addiction treatment center features both therapy and secondary services. Talk to us today to find out more about our customized recovery plans for men.
