Methamphetamine (meth) addicts can be treated until they have achieved recovery. Drug abusers should seek treatment by checking into a certified detox center such as Harbor Village.

"Treatment is the best course of action for anyone suffering from drug abuse. Those suffering from any substance abuse issue should seek immediate help at a qualified," said Robert Niznik, Harbor Village CEO.

The Yuma Sun reports (9/5) in their news story, Addiction to meth not a death sentence, that a recovery expert, Anthony Alberta, PhD., says that Methamphetamine (Meth) addiction is treatable. He says that meth addicts think their addiction is impossible to beat, which is untrue, he says.

Dr. Alberta says he'd also like non-addicts to know that meth addiction is not a death sentence with little hope for recovery. Many times, non-addicts tell meth addicts that there's no hope for recovery. Alberta reiterates that isn't the case.

"Meth addiction is treatable. There is no doubt about that. Meth is just as treatable as any other drug out there," said Alberta, program director with The Living Center in Yuma. "Fifty percent of people who complete treatment successfully recover. That means they are abstinent from use for about two years. That is comparable with other drugs across the board."

Alberta sees a problem with popular culture adding sensational fire to fact, creating a mythology about meth that can discourage addicts to seek help.

"If we promote the idea that meth addiction is not treatable, then it becomes in fact untreatable. The perfection becomes the reality," he said. "I think if a person believes there is no hope, no possibility of recovery, they make totally different decisions than if they believed recovery is possible."
