About Crystal Meth
Crystal Meth is an addictive stimulant that strongly activates certain systems in the brain.

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.
