The prevalence of methamphetamine-related substance abuse issues is on the rise. Due to its high potency, this drug can cause profound psychological and physiological alterations when used for prolonged periods. If you or someone dear to you is grappling with this problem, seeking assistance is absolutely imperative.
Methamphetamine, commonly known as meth, is a synthetic stimulant drug that is unfortunately subject to widespread abuse, particularly in its crystal form, which is illegal. This dangerous substance is increasingly gaining popularity among recreational drug users and individuals grappling with addiction or mental health disorders. It triggers a cascade of negative effects on users by disrupting normal brain chemistry and greatly elevating dopamine levels, leading to enduring and severe physical as well as psychological complications.
Long-term methamphetamine use carries significant risks, such as cognitive impairment, psychosis, severe depression, heart attack, stroke, and seizures. Furthermore, the act of sharing needles during drug use significantly increases the likelihood of contracting infectious diseases. Thus, it is imperative that individuals struggling with meth addiction are acutely aware of these potential dangers and seek the necessary help to embark on a journey of recovery.
A vital initial step towards overcoming meth addiction is seeking professional treatment. At Empower Recovery, we are dedicated to assisting those grappling with methamphetamine addiction in embarking on a path of rehabilitation. Our comprehensive approach addresses not only the addiction itself but also any underlying issues that may have contributed to its development. Through tailored individual and group counseling, we empower individuals to develop healthier lifestyle choices and learn effective strategies for managing cravings and coping with triggers in their environment.

I had a great experience at Empower Recovery. I initially had planned on only going for 28 days, not fully committed to getting sober and ended up staying for 82 and now am over 3 months sober. The staff are great and everything is well organized. Meals are good as well. They put you on a great track for success in your sobriety and mental health. The location is great for attending plenty of actually fun AA/NA meetings. The weekend excursions around the LA area are an added bonus too! I’ll miss a lot of people I met out there and have made some life long friends. I highly recommend Empower if you are looking for help. -
Came out here to help with a meth addiction. My life had become unmanageable. Thanks to the staff here and the programs and tools they taught me, I know have the tools needed for long term sobriety. Pat, Daniel, Carissa, Olivia and Austin are some of the best staff here. Daniel & Pat especially always treated every single person with respect and dignity they deserved. If wasn’t for Empower I don’t know where my life would be at. Thank you to the team and atmosphere Empower has.
