Cocaine, Amphetamine and Methamphetamine (“Ice”) Treatment Programs

 

All three of these drugs act as highly addictive central nervous system stimulants. Their use may have devastating medical, psychological and social consequences, including memory loss, aggression, psychotic behaviour, heart damage and long-term brain damage.

Dependence on these drugs can be a chronic, relapsing condition that is highly refractive to treatment. Currently the main treatments are psychologically-based, including counselling, psychotherapy and behavioural and cognitive therapies, but these treatments are often relatively ineffective, and both short and long-term outcomes may be poor.

We have developed and provide new medical treatment programs for patients addicted to these stimulants that target the effects of these drugs on the brain, to help improve long term abstinence and recovery.
