The Discovery House Announces a Bevy of New Meth Addiction Resources
The Discovery House, a fully licensed, Joint Commission accredited, comprehensive drug and alcohol treatment center located in Reseda, CA, has announced that they provide a large amount of new information about methamphetamine addiction. One such article explains how meth purity leads to overdoses. In the article titled, “The Impact of Super Meth,” they reveal how this new drug is more potent than the usual meth. Although super meth appears to have a lot of chemical similarities with regular meth, it is actually more addictive and more deadly.
A spokesperson for The Discovery House says, “We want to help raise awareness of the deadly purity of meth now entering the US. This has been directly linked to the record number of overdoses experienced over the past 12 months, with over 100,000 deaths due to drugs for the first time in recorded history. Our team wants to direct attention to our experience and ability to help even the most challenging meth addictions, through proven therapy and evidence-based practices.”
Super meth is the latest creation of the cartels from Mexico that has reached the US and currently presents a crisis for the US Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) and the local enforcement agencies. The ease of transport and the high quality of super meth has made it popular among meth users. But people need to know that super meth is methamphetamine with a unique chemical structure. Meth manufacturers have found a way to produce 97 percent meth consistently and then liquefy it to make it easier to transport. Super meth, which is also known as Ice or Crystal meth, has rapidly gained in popularity because it is cheap, easy to use, and easy to hide.
The attractiveness of super meth for users comes from its potency. Many users have observed that the feeling they get from it is many times more powerful than what they get with regular meth. The purity of super meth is a contributor to this more intense feeling. However, this is exacerbated by the fact that super meth is often cut with fentanyl, offering a high that is much more intense. This makes people get addicted to the drug much more quickly. And there are several unwanted meth side effects, such as meth mouth.
The easy production of super meth and its significant rise in popularity has resulted in the number of people overdosing on the drug rising exponentially. Since many users typically use meth in private locations, there is usually no one to call emergency services when they overdose.
Breaking the habit of taking methamphetamine is a difficult challenge but the team of professionals at The Discovery House has been trained in the meth recovery process, from detox to long-term treatment. The addiction treatment programs they offer have a full catalog of components, such as detox, family counseling, group, and individual therapy sessions, addiction education, peer support, and aftercare programs, and active alumni program.

Those who successfully complete this program can move on to intensive outpatient therapy where therapists will continue to monitor them and evaluate their progress.
