SCM Meth Rehab is different than other addiction centers because meth addiction is different than any other addiction in so many more ways. To begin with, there is the fact that meth addiction occurs after the very first use of meth.

Other addictive drugs may have to be used several times before a true addiction occurs. This is not so with meth. The addiction to meth is literally instantaneous. Further, it starts out as a strong addiction and only gets stronger.

It is impossible to recreate the initial "high" that is felt the first time someone uses meth. Because of this, people who use meth will continue to do so, in the hope that they can achieve that first "rush". As any of the centers for meth rehab in South Richmond, NY, staff members will tell you, it isn't going to happen.

Another difference with meth addiction is the physical effects that meth has on one's body. Meth causes increased feelings of energy and stamina. A person who is using meth may go for days without eating or sleeping. These can have negative consequences on a person's body.

Continued meth use causes skin irritation, or at least the feeling that one's skin is irritated. Constant rubbing and scratching opens large sores on the body, which can become infected because of malnutrition as well as general disregard to hygiene.

Centers for meth rehab in South Richmond, NY, staff members are aware of this, and many will delay actually starting rehab treatment. Meth rehab at SCM in New York, NY, may start out in this way.

The patient may not even start the actual rehab treatment until he has been receiving proper nourishment for a period of time, and sores and other physical ailments have been treated. Only after a person's physical condition has improved will rehab treatment protocols be implemented. For more information on SCM Meth Rehab in New York, NY, please call (718) 717-8325.
