Where Is the Best Crystal Meth Rehab for Gay Men in New York (NY)?
The West Village in New York City (NYC) is one of the most important sites in the history of the gay rights movement. In 1969, the Stonewall Inn, long an under-the-radar gay bar, became the flashpoint for days of angry riots as gay men, women, and transgendered people stood up to the police and fought for their right, sparking a still-ongoing movement that would aim to bring rights and dignity to LGBT people around the world. A decade and a half later, the Village was the site of a historic tragedy, as the gay community was ripped apart by the AIDS epidemic. Today, the West Village is still a gay hotspot—and the scene of another epidemic: crystal meth. Gay men too young to remember the pain of the eighties are living and dying for “Tina,” sacrificing their beauty and health for the fleeting high of methamphetamine.
Crystal meth (also known as “glass”) is a profoundly addictive drug. Meth users who become addicted experience a quick physical decline, as they develop skin conditions, their teeth rot, and quick weight loss becomes emaciation. In addition to physical symptoms, meth users put themselves at serious risk for injury and disease because of their behavior while high—it’s hard to remember condoms and lube when you’re high out of your mind. You might not feel any pain or discomfort until it’s too late. And quitting crystal meth isn’t easy once your body has become dependent on it. Crystal meth withdrawal is extremely painful and difficult, and it’s best to go through it under medical supervision.
