Ice Rehabilitation & Recovery Treatment Centre Melbourne, Victoria

The emergence of the drug, Ice or methamphetamine over the past decade has radically changed addiction treatment in Australia. Clients present with vastly different behaviours and requirements than those suffering from other forms of substance dependence.

Additionally, many are knocking on the doors of drug rehabs at a very young age because this drug has quick and severe consequences. Ice is very popular amongst teens and young adults and the way this affects the developing brain is part of what makes treatment both significantly challenging but also highly rewarding.

Ice, also known as methamphetamine, is one of the most commonly abused illegal drugs causing more problems globally than any other. Its popularity is due to its availability, affordability and the extreme euphoric high experienced by users.

Harm Caused by Ice

Ice releases approximately 1250 units of dopamine into the brain compared to cocaine’s 400 units. When it is considered that about 200 units of dopamine are released naturally during sex it gives some idea of just what an extreme chemical reaction goes on.

Meth is one of the most powerful and addictive drugs available. It is also one of the most dangerous, causing damage to brain neurons, which results in a rapid decline in the user’s ability to experience pleasure without it. After many years of abuse, it has been known to cause irreversible harm to the way people feel pleasure from normal activities even after they are no longer using it.

In response to this epidemic, the Hader Clinic has developed a specialist Ice drug rehab, guaranteeing the complex needs of these clients are met. Moreover, this approach maximises the prospect of a successful long-term recovery.

Ice detox

Our team are highly experienced in providing safe and effective Ice detox programs. The detox process from Ice can actually take a number of months depending on the user. Frequently we see two stages of withdrawal from Ice addiction. The first stage has immediate acute symptoms and these are usually both physical and psychological. During stage two, former users experience post-acute withdrawal symptoms or PAWS.

These refer to a number of psychological symptoms such as depression or angry outbursts which can last for weeks or months after the user has stopped taking the drug. This is one of many reasons why residential treatment is the most effective way to treat Ice addiction. Our best results are with those clients who attend for 90 days although shorter stays are available.
