Crystal Meth Treatment

If you or someone you know is addicted to crystal meth and seeking treatment, it is "very important to ask questions" when talking to admissions of addiction treatment centers. Do not just go to the first one that sounds good.

I would first attend a few support groups like Alcoholics Anonymous, Narcotics Anonymous, or a local church recovery group. You can just sit and listen, you do not need to talk or give anybody any information about you. But remember that closed mouths don't get fed.

      Great page. Some information and links I haven't seen before. Meth is a bad thing - I wonder if I knew more about it - how terribly addicting it is - the low, low perctentage rate of people who are able to recover - I wonder if I still would have tried it. I don't think so.
