The Best Treatment Facility to Help Me Quit Meth
AMC’s hit series Breaking Bad may have made crystal meth seem cool, or at minimum, alluring. Where else but within the landscape of television can a high school chemistry teacher evolve into a meth-producing drug king pin? But the truth is, meth is a highly addictive drug, negatively impacts the user’s health, and may even lead to death. Drug addictions are serious and should never be taken lightly, even if it’s been used as part of a plot in a popular TV series.
Greenhouse Treatment Center is an American Addiction Centers’ (AAC) facility. AAC has treatment facilities across the country and is the nationwide leader in addiction treatment. Located in the state of Texas, Greenhouse provides a welcoming environment for our patients. We offer medical detox, standard outpatient, intensive outpatient program (IOP), aftercare planning, and sober living at Resolutions Arlington.
Methamphetamine is a stimulant, a classified Schedule II drug, and very addictive. And it is also a substance that Greenhouse Treatment Center treats for. When consumed, it can very quickly lead to considerable quantities of dopamine release in the parts of the brain associated with reward, which can cause the user to want to use meth again. As a matter of fact, meth may cause an individual to behave in a way that is dangerous, lowering their inhibitions, affecting their overall judgement, and raising their libido. Together, the variables can increase risks for individuals, such as contracting HIV and hepatitis through sexual contact.
And what is the alternative to not taking meth once addicted? Quitting. That may sound like the smart thing to do. But no one should quit a highly addictive drug like meth on their own. This is why it’s important to turn to treatment facilities like Greenhouse for help. As mentioned, we offer medical detox so patients will be able to be supervised by medical professionals and provided with the proper methods of withdrawal to decrease the severity of withdrawal symptoms and to provide pain management. Withdrawal may lead to anxiousness, anger, depression, psychosis, cravings, or even suicidal ideation.
Television and movies may sometimes portray a very real and raw interpretation of the reality of drug and alcohol addiction. Other times, the mediums may downplay the impact that drugs have on individual lives. Street names may also lesson the severity of what drugs can do to the human body, almost as if these nicknames themselves “make it cool” to use.

Although Breaking Bad was a mighty force to be reckoned with due to the characters, plot, and character arcs, there were times when the show portrayed the honest and harmful side to using meth through smaller characters who were users of the substance. It showed the harsh realities and the impact on both their physical bodies and how it impacted their behavior.
Whether you or a loved one is struggling with meth, crystal meth, alcohol, or any other substance, you are not alone. There is help available. Battling a substance use disorder, or a drug addiction, in silence and on your own isn’t necessary. Greenhouse Treatment Center can serve as a beacon in what may feel like a very dark time.
