Amphetamines are stimulant drugs that speed up brain signalling, making you more alert and active. These drugs range from prescription medications like Ritalin to illicit substances like crystal meth. No matter what type of amphetamine you are taking, all have the potential to lead to physical dependence, in which case amphetamine rehab is essential.
If you are struggling to control your amphetamine use, Oasis Runcorn can help you to quit. With our expertise, you will be able to find the support you need and gain freedom from amphetamines.
The core principles of amphetamine rehab
Amphetamine rehabilitation is built upon a foundation of core principles that address the multidimensional nature of addiction. Recovery goes beyond simply abstaining from amphetamine use and should encompass holistic healing of the mind, body and soul.
Prolonged amphetamine use takes a toll on the body, and withdrawal symptoms can be unpleasant in the initial stages of recovery. At Oasis Runcorn, you will take part in an assisted detox which aims to rid the body of harmful toxins and restore its natural balance.
During amphetamine detox, you may experience some withdrawal symptoms which include:
- Body aches and pains
- Nausea and vomiting
- Agitation and mood swings
- Vivid nightmares
Our medical staff will closely monitor you during this process, ensuring you are comfortable as your body repairs itself. With our assistance, you can rest assured that your detox will be safe and successful.
The importance of addressing psychological issues and emotional scars is significant in amphetamine rehab – these underlying issues can both cause and exacerbate prescription drug addiction and illicit drug use. Through therapy, you will gain insight into the root causes of your drug use and develop healthier coping mechanisms to help you manage going forward.
Some of the rehab therapies offered at Oasis Runcorn include:
- 12 step therapy
- Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT)
- Dialectical behaviour therapy (DBT)
- Group therapy
- Family therapy
- Mindfulness-based therapy
Your therapist will help to guide you to a place of peace and wellness as you work with them to repair past trauma, emotional distress and co-occurring mental health issues.
Regularly abusing amphetamines can leave you feeling alone, worthless and devoid of purpose. The treatment programme at Oasis Runcorn encourages you to reconnect with your inner self, helping you to rediscover your values and passions. We do this through a variety of holistic activities, including yoga and meditation, gong baths, art therapy, affirmations and self-worth workshops.
Do I need amphetamine rehab?
Escaping amphetamine dependence starts with recognising you have a problem. This is not an easy step, but it is one that can empower you as you embark on a journey to sobriety. It is therefore important to look for signs that you need amphetamine rehab.
Some signs you need amphetamine rehab include:
- Being unable to control how much or how often you take amphetamines
- Trying to reduce or quit amphetamines but being unsuccessful
- Needing to take increasingly higher doses to feel the same effects
- Experiencing intense cravings or withdrawal symptoms when abstaining from amphetamines
- Neglecting other important areas of your life in favour of using amphetamines, for example, work or relationships
- Hiding or downplaying your amphetamine use to others
- Using amphetamines to escape stress or difficult emotions
- Suffering negative consequences as a result of your amphetamine use but continuing to use regardless
If you have noticed one or more of these signs in your own amphetamine use, our team can help you to reclaim your life. The damage caused by amphetamines can be reversed with professional intervention.

Life after amphetamine rehab
Completing amphetamine rehab marks the beginning of a new chapter in your life, but it does not mean the hard work is over. Maintaining your sobriety once you leave rehab is a new challenge you must face. There are some things you can do to help transition into your new, amphetamine-free life and prevent relapse. These include:
- Attend regular aftercare meetings and find local support groups
- Surround yourself with supportive friends and family
- Avoid triggers, including people or places that might prompt a relapse
- Implement relapse prevention techniques learned in amphetamine rehab
- Set attainable goals and celebrate your successes
- Prioritise your own self-care
It is also important to remember that recovery is full of ups and downs. Amphetamine relapse does not equate to failure but instead a lesson to learn from.
