What are the different forms of meth-based drugs?

Methamphetamine addiction goes by many names, such as crystal meth, ice, meth, glass and yaba – which is the Thai name for the drug that translates to ‘crazy drug’. Crystal meth is practically the same drug as your standard methamphetamine, though it comes in the form of crystals. It also is not snorted like meth, but smoked instead. Glass and ice are other synonyms for crystal meth.

Yaba is another form of methamphetamine that is mainly found in Thailand. It stands apart from the other forms of meth because it is a mixture of caffeine and methamphetamine, and usually comes in the form of a tablet.

What are the health effects of meth/ice addiction?

Regardless of the name that is used to call meth, it is classified as one of the world’s most dangerous drugs. It is both physically and mentally destructive, which is why many meth addicts look completely different before and after their introduction to the drug.  Health effects of ice drug addiction include:

What methods are available at The Dawn for ice addiction treatment in Thailand?

After arriving at The Dawn, our clients are given a qualitative assessment in order to create a personalised treatment plan that caters to their specific needs. Some clients will be required to participate in our onsite detox programme, though this depends on several factors such as type of addiction and severity and duration of use.

Our holistic approach to ice addiction treatment allows you to participate in our original, and incredibly effective, Twin Pillars Approach, which encompasses wellness and rehabilitation. Our main treatment method focuses on Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT), which combines cognitive therapy with meditative practices, and encourages individuals to become acquainted with the modes of mind. We also use the 12 Step principle so that our clients have the optimal change of altering their behaviour and staying sober.

We offer a unique treatment approach by dealing with the root causes of addiction and finding out why our clients are battling alcohol and drug addictions to begin with. An intervention at this level focuses on identifying key triggers, introducing a positive mindset and emphasises the necessity for lifestyle discipline.

During your drug addiction treatment you will participate in one-on-one and group counselling, peer support, massage therapy, exercise, mediation, healthy eating and alternative and holistic therapies.
