Breaking the Chains of Meth Addiction
MetadataShow full item record
This paper is designed to argue for behavioral therapy methods to allow for sustainable recovery from methamphetamine. Before providing treatment options, the paper discusses the history and lure of methamphetamine. The research comes from a compassionate viewpoint on addicts, including a book that contains interviews straight from former addicts. The paper includes users’ voices instead of solely an outsider’s perspective. Other research discusses dangers of methamphetamine. Much of this portion of the research comes from academic journals on the environmental, cultural, and physical repercussions of meth use. In order to look over the treatment methods for methamphetamine, the research uses many types of sources. Some come from the internet, while others are scientific studies done on various treatment methods. The paper also includes sources accessed through YouTube. The videos allow the first-hand perspective of withdrawal among other experiences while recovering from addiction. The implications of the research prove to be that there are many ways to begin treatment. Not all treatments are equally helpful, though. This paper provides the evidence to place behavioral therapeutic methods as the most sustainable treatment because of the manner in which they treat patients.
