I Need Help. How Can I Quit Crystal Meth?
At Archstone Recovery Center of the Palm Beaches, we help real people in real need. Here’s an example, shared with permission:
I’m writing to you because I found you online and I don’t know where else to turn. I think I’m addicted to crystal meth. I started out just doing it a little for fun but now I’m a tweaker and I don’t know how to stop. I can see my face starting to change and one of my teeth fell out. I lost my job. How can I get help quitting crystal meth? Where do I start? Where can I get meth rehab? Will rehab centers take my insurance? Is it OK that I’m from New York? I’m at rock bottom and I need help. Please help me.
-“Zach” (not his real name)
Shortly after he wrote us, Christina, an Archstone Recovery admissions counselor, called Zach. She explained that, yes, patients come to Archstone Recovery from all over the country—not just lots of New York (NY) crystal methamphetamine addicts, but also people from New Jersey (NJ), Baltimore (MD), Washington DC, New England, and right here in Florida. (Archstone Recovery is in Lantana, Florida, on the Atlantic coast, near Palm Beach International Airport.) Christina took Zach’s insurance information and told him that she’d call the insurance company and work everything out for him. Then they went over Zach’s options: after an initial period of doctor-supervised crystal meth detox, Zach can choose partial hospitalization, residential, transitional care, outpatient, or extended care crystal meth recovery programs. She explained each one and helped Zach choose. Zach wanted to know: “Will my crystal meth rehab program treat me like a human being?” Christina explained that Archstone Recovery’s philosophy is to honor patients’ full humanity with counseling, spiritual programs, and treatments tailored to each person’s needs.
Zach came to Archstone Recovery and found the tools he needed to get clean and rebuild his life. Today, two years later, he has a great job, a loving wife, and a baby on the way. He asked Archstone Recovery to use his story to help other crystal meth addicts get clean. Are you ready to turn your life around? Contact Archstone Recovery today.
