At-Home Meth Addiction Treatment
Meth Addiction Treatment From the Comfort and Privacy of Your Own Home
ALYST Health offers the first and only fully at-home cocaine addiction treatment program accredited by the Joint Commission. Our comprehensive approach provides participants in recovery with all the tools, resources, and connections they need to achieve sustained sobriety from the comfort and privacy of home.
At ALYST Health, we’re committed to making meth addiction treatment available and accessible to as many people as possible, but we also realize that conventional addiction treatment centers aren’t the best option for many people. Some individuals aren’t able to put life on pause for 30 to 90 days to enter a program, value their privacy to a degree group settings can’t guarantee, or struggle with integrating treatment into their daily routine.
To achieve our goals of making meth addiction treatment more accessible to everyone, we developed a fully at-home approach that incorporates all the integral components of successful recovery, including:
Successful addiction recovery can’t begin until someone is motivated to change, but many people with a meth addiction don’t recognize why they need to change in the first place. Our Certified Intervention Professionals provide an objective opportunity for family members and loved ones to communicate how a meth addiction impacts their lives while establishing healthy boundaries and an actionable plan moving forward.
Our sober companions (we call them Certified Recovery Agents or CRAs) stand as the cornerstone of our at-home meth rehab program. They provide 24/7 support and guidance for individuals in recovery as they navigate their sobriety and learn new coping skills that they can immediately integrate into their daily routine. As key recovery milestones are achieved, our CRAs step back as participants gain the confidence to stay sober.
Successfully recovering from a meth addiction requires a team of addiction specialists all working toward the same goals. Our meth addiction case managers are licensed social workers who specialize in addiction and work to keep all treatment teams in sync. Their 100% confidential approach also provides a single point of contact and accountability for all authorized parties, including family members and other treatment professionals.
With our at-home meth addiction program, we offer the flexibility to over each of the above services as a complete treatment package or as standalone services customized to your goals.

What Is Methamphetamine?
Methamphetamine, also known as crystal meth, is an addictive stimulant that can cause dependency in as little as one use. A rush of dopamine produced by the drug stimulates the brain’s reward system, creating the urge to consume more and making it difficult to find pleasure in anything else. Due to the intense chemical reaction occurring in the brain, methamphetamine is extremely dangerous and addictive. There are many nicknames for meth, most notably crystal, glass, blue, and ice. It is commonly found as a white, odorless, bitter-tasting crystalline powder or in shards resembling broken glass.
What Are the Signs of Methamphetamine Addiction?

How Is Meth Used?
Common routes of administration for meth are intravenous (IV), inhalation, and insufflation (snorting). Intravenous is a direct injection using a needle into a vein.
