A Trois-Rivières alcohol and drug rehab center is announcing a new program to help end methamphetamine addiction in adults and adolescents at Drug Addiction Treatment Centers.

According to data and information offered by a Government of Canada website, methamphetamine, or "(crystal meth or speed) is a synthetic (man-made) stimulant. It is not made from a plant or an herb. Instead, it is produced through chemical synthesis by pharmaceutical companies (for certain medical purposes) and illegal labs (for sale on the street). Methamphetamine varies in texture and purity depending on how it is made. It may be sold as a fine to coarse powder ('speed'), crystals ('crystal meth'), or white chunks with grey or pink bits. It may be taken by mouth, smoked, snorted, or injected. 'Speed' is the street term for the injectable or orally ingested form of methamphetamine. 'Crystal meth' is the street term for the smokeable form of methamphetamine."

Drug rehabilitation allows adults and adolescents a chance to get clean from their drug of choice, whether it is meth, cocaine, heroin, marijuana, or prescription drugs. Detoxification, which cleanses out the physical body filled with mind-altering substances, is part of this process. Drug detox’s main goal is to rid the body of chemical toxins.

After drug detox comes counseling and therapeutic methods. More times than not, real-life issues lie behind a drug addict's substance abuse. Some might include physical, emotional, spiritual or mental abuse. Drug rehab allows clients time to discern and figure out what is their truth around these situations.

Counselors and therapists with years of experience in the field of substance abuse treatment and addiction can help make the transition from addiction to recovery easier. These drug rehab staff members can rely on their personal and professional experiences with addiction to offer compassion and support to recovering individuals working to overcome their addictions.

Staff and clients are able to exchange stories of shared experiences, which will let recovering individuals know they are not alone in their journey. The relationships formed between recovering individuals and staff members provide a strong support network that offers strength and guidance during the recovery journey, throughout the transition to life outside of treatment and as recovering individuals adjust to sobriety.

Drug rehab centers stand firmly upon the foundation of the Twelve Spiritual Principles of recovery, which include Honesty, Hope, Faith, Courage, Integrity, Willingness, Humility, Love for Others (Brotherly and Sisterly), Justice, Perseverance, Spirituality and Service. These centers exist to support and guide recovering individuals as they learn to seek a different path that does not involve drugs.

Entering and going through drug rehab can become a life-changing journey for any person serious about kicking their habit. For more information on Drug Addiction Treatment Centers, visit or call 819-809-1650.
