If you or someone you know is addicted to meth and seeking treatment, let me first congratulate you for making the decision to chose life over death. Finding the right treatment program is healthy for your recovery. It is "very important to ask questions" when talking to admissions of treatment centers. Do not go to the first treatment center that sounds good.
I would first attend a few support groups like Alcoholics Anonymous, Narcotics Anonymous, or a local church recovery group. You can just sit and listen, you do not need to talk or give anybody any information about you. But remember that closed mouths don't get fed.
Most places offer many forms of meth treatment such as inpatient treatment, outpatient treatment, detox facilities, halfway houses, and sober living homes.
Inpatient treatment is where you can reside at a facility under supervision and counseling from certified professionals.
Outpatient treatment is where you can continue living at home and working while receiving counseling. Treatment may consist of attending individual or group counseling sessions for an hour or two per week and can last 90 days or more.
Sober living homes are where a person in recovery lives in a place that is free from alcohol and drug use, and the residents are free to pursue activities to support their recovery, either alone or with others.
