Crystal Meth to Drug Rehab

I looked up some facts on Crystal Meth as i have noticed its become more and more popular on the streets:

"Crystal Meth is a colorless, odorless form of methamphetamine. It resembles small fragments of glass or shiny blue-white “rocks” of various sizes. It is a highly powerful and addictive man-made stimulant that causes aggression and violent or psychotic behavior. Many users report getting hooked (addicted) from the first time they use it. It is one of the hardest drugs to treat. Crystal meth is either inhaled or smoked. Low doses are in common as well in pill form.

Some street names for Crystal Meth are:

• Speed
• Ice
• Quartz
• Crystalz
• Glass
• Crank
• Tweak
• Crystal tea
• Go-Fast
• Tina

These effects stem from the association the drug has on the bodies’ nervous system. Crystal Meth when compared to cocaine produces a longer feeling of euphoria, which can last for over 12 hours. Without the required treatment for this addiction the end result is usually fatal. Due to the effects Meth has on the blood vessels, there is a high potential for stroke, which in many cases lead to death. Other patients die of hyperthermia and cardiac failure.

Over the past decade the use of Crystal Meth had produced staggering results. A research conducted by NSDUH, noted that over 10.4 million people over 12 years have tried Meth at some point in their lives. The monitoring youth survey showed that 4.5% of high school students said they have used the drug at least once in their life.

With these kind of numbers, its no wonder parents are more concerned than ever at their child’s risk at coming in contact with these types of Narcotics. Addiction to and problems with methamphetamine’s are best combated in a safe, therapeutic setting such as a recovery center. No matter the severity of a person’s addiction."

There are many rehabilitation's available for those who are addicted. I have researched many Drug Rehab's and there was one that stood out in my mind:

The very name “LuxuryDrugRehab.com” tells you that they take rehab very seriously. They understand that the best rehab situation is one where all of your everyday needs are cared for; a place where you can enjoy the same lifestyle to which you are accustomed; and a place that encourages healing by being inviting and nurturing, rather than clinical and cold.
