Meth Addiction Counseling

Meth addiction is a complex and challenging issue requiring professional treatment. Meth addiction is a form of substance use disorder involving the misuse of methamphetamine. It typically occurs when an individual begins to heavily use and abuse the stimulant drug by taking more than recommended doses or using it in ways other than prescribed. Symptoms of meth addiction may include intense cravings for the drug, increased energy levels, insomnia, paranoia, irritability, and aggression. The most effective treatment typically involves a combination of behavioral therapies, medication-assisted treatment, and support from loved ones. At Honu House Hawaii, we provide a range of therapies that focus on creating lasting sobriety and successful recovery. These include evidence-based treatments such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Internal Family Systems (IFS), and Motivational Interviewing. Our experienced counselors encourage mindfulness and help our clients build self-awareness to understand their triggers better and develop strategies to overcome addiction in the long term.
