Texas Meth Rehab for Men
Men's Meth Addiction Treatment in Texas
Methamphetamine, more commonly referred to as meth, is a potent and highly addictive stimulant that affects the body’s central nervous system. Meth most often comes in the form of a white, bitter-tasting, odorless powder or crystals that easily dissolves in water or alcohol. Meth can be swallowed, smoked, injected and snorted. Due to the addictive nature of this substance, some users begin to experience the signs of meth addiction with just one use.
If you or a friend or family member is dealing with meth addiction, The Last Resort is here to help. We utilize a selection of evidence-based and structured treatment programs at our Austin area rehab facility, where we’ve helped countless men beat and recover from meth addiction.
