The Leading Meth Addiction Treatment Center for Women

Are you or a loved one struggling with meth addiction? We’re here to provide the support and guidance you need. Residents at Timberline Knolls learn to conquer meth addiction through evidence-based treatment methods and cutting-edge therapies.

Individualized Meth Addiction Treatment

Methamphetamine abuse exacts a heavy toll on the sufferer and her loved ones. Treatment for meth addiction frequently fails to accurately differentiate the symptoms of methamphetamine abuse from symptoms of other co-occurring psychiatric disorders.

Each woman who seeks recovery at Timberline Knolls Residential Treatment Center receives an individualized meth addiction treatment program. Psychiatrists, physicians and therapists who are experts in drug abuse and addiction treatment will review her entire history of substance abuse. They may uncover related addictions such as alcoholism, prescription drug abuse, anorexia nervosa or bulimia that may have preceded or developed along with long-term methamphetamine addiction.

Our substance abuse treatment team also digs deeper than many drug rehab centers into the underlying causes and conditions of the entire addictive disease process. As a result, they often identify co-occurring disorders, which left unaddressed, frequently lie at the root of methamphetamine relapses.

This individualized, medically-informed approach to treatment and recovery succeeds for many women for whom other drug rehab programs fail. It helps women and their families reclaim their lives and establish themselves as members of the successful recovery community.

What Makes Our Methamphetamine Addiction Treatment Plans Successful?

Effective approaches to substance abuse treatment and recovery consider all available information about a resident, and leverage the experience of our entire staff to customize her treatment program. This collaborative approach is one of the distinguishing elements of methamphetamine addiction treatment at a leading rehab center like Timberline Knolls Residential Treatment Center. It’s also one of the reasons why so many leading outpatient drug abuse and addiction specialists refer to us their patients who need more intensive treatment, or who have struggled to sustain recovery in an outpatient setting.

Before Admission

Assessment of a woman’s treatment needs begins early on in our admissions review process. We ask both the woman and her family to provide information about her drug abuse symptoms, issues with friends and family, and challenges in school or work. We also seek her permission to communicate with previous addiction treatment providers to gather additional information about medical history, psychiatric history, past substance abuse treatment progress, and stumbling blocks to achieving or maintaining recovery from methamphetamine abuse.

Thorough Intake Assessment

Once she is admitted, each woman undergoes a comprehensive medical and psychiatric assessment. She is then assigned a substance abuse treatment team with several members whom she will meet individually after she settles in on campus:

  • Primary therapist
  • Family therapist
  • Psychiatrist (MD)
  • Internal medicine physician (MD)
  • Addiction specialist
  • Registered dietician (RD)

Each treatment team member provides an assessment within the woman’s first days at Timberline Knolls. The findings are integrated and reviewed with our entire clinical staff, including other therapists and psychiatrists. As a result, our full knowledge about successful methamphetamine addiction treatment is integrated into each woman’s treatment plan.

Taking Ownership of Treatment

We believe it is critical for each woman to take ownership of her treatment and recovery from the outset. Once her addiction treatment plan is formulated, our team’s recommendations are shared with the woman in her first care conference, which will include her primary therapist, family therapist, psychiatrist, discharge planner, nursing staff and lodge staff. This cooperative approach gives her input into the goals for her treatment and allows her to choose several elective elements of her program. She will be asked to sign off on her treatment objectives and the progression of her treatment plan for methamphetamine abuse, eating disorders, and any co-occurring disorders. This conference also sets stage for ongoing collaboration between the woman and her treatment team throughout her stay in residential treatment.

Looking Forward to Recovery

Following the initial care conference, the treatment team will meet weekly throughout the resident’s stay, and consult each other informally to monitor her progress and to make sure her recovery needs are being fully supported. If new symptoms appear, a woman may also undergo additional psychological testing or medical evaluation to ensure her meth addiction treatment considers all relevant aspects of her health.

Additionally, women with medical symptoms or other complications from methamphetamine addiction, bulimia, or anorexia may be referred to consulting healthcare providers such as a dentist, cardiologist, gynecologist, orthopedic surgeon, ENT (ear, nose, and throat) surgeon or gastroenterologist.

What Will You Experience At Our Treatment Center?

A woman’s experience at Timberline Knolls Residential Treatment Center may differ significantly from other drug rehab facilities or substance abuse treatment programs she has attended in the past. That is by design.

Comprehensive, Integrated Treatment and Recovery

There is no such thing as a cure for meth addiction.

Every woman recovering from methamphetamine abuse must develop tools she can trust to help her continue to live in recovery, even when she feels desire to use again. We work with our residents to help them identify the conscious choices they are making throughout their day. Our caring staff provides constant support as women learn to use new tools in situations where they would have previously turned to methamphetamines. As they gain confidence in their ability to make healthy recovery choices, women experience improved self-esteem, body acceptance, reduced stress and anxiety, healing of trauma, and increased self-awareness.

Comprehensive and individualized treatment plans use approaches proven to help women learn to experience their emotions and develop the tools to recover from methamphetamine abuse. Specific examples include:

  • one-on-one therapy sessions
  • expressive and experiential therapy
  • education about disease processes and recovery
  • meal support and regular consultation with dietary staff
  • group sessions to teach and practice behavior modification and emotion management
  • family therapy (including family participation)
  • twelve-step facilitation
  • onsite and offsite twelve-step meetings
  • weekly psychiatric consultation
  • trauma awareness and recovery
  • educational services for school-age women
  • Families Anonymous (FA)

Expressive Therapy Provides a Productive Outlet for Complex Emotions

Expressive therapy has been clinically proven to promote healing and recovery, in addition to providing a needed creative outlet for women during their treatment and beyond. Our expressive therapy program includes a variety of outlets a woman can select based on her personal interests:

  • art therapy in a historical art studio that supports painting, sculpture and other media
  • dance/movement therapy
  • empowerment group (experiential trauma recovery)
  • outdoor recreation such as volleyball, basketball, soccer, badminton or gardening on our 43 acre campus

How Do We Treat Co-Occurring Disorders With Methamphetamine Abuse?

When treating women and girls for meth addiction, our specialized treatment team at Timberline Knolls Residential Treatment Center never assumes they are treating an isolated disease. Frequently, long-term methamphetamine abuse represents attempts by a woman to either:

  • Reduce feelings of anxiety worsened by underlying psychiatric conditions that we refer to as co-occurring disorders; or,
  • Control intense emotions related to unresolved experiences in her past.

Co-occurring disorders are a recognized factor in methamphetamine users, but not always treated appropriately by many medical and behavioral health professionals, who are primarily concerned with addressing the methamphetamine dependency. Medical researchers have found that a large percentage of those who have an addiction to methamphetamines also have at least one other mental illness and/or personality disorder. Co-occurring disorders describe a situation where methamphetamine addiction exists along with at least one other psychiatric illness that is active and negatively impacts the user’s patterns of substance abuse. Women with co-occurring disorders tend to have more severe symptoms of each illness and higher potential for relapse.

Examples of conditions which can co-exist with methamphetamine addiction are:

  • depression
  • eating disorders, including bulimiaanorexia nervosa, orthorexia, binge eating, and compulsive over-eating
  • bipolar disorder
  • alcoholism and other substance abuse
  • panic and anxiety disorders
  • post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
  • obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD)
  • personality disorders
  • schizophrenia
  • various phobias

For a woman with co-occurring disorders, an attempt to address only the meth abuse in isolation is at best incomplete, and at worst counterproductive. Life-long recovery requires an in depth understanding of each disease and the complex interactions between them.

My experience with a nearly six week long stay here was very positive! I learned new behaviors to replace my old destructive ones and achieved sobriety here. All of which I have been able to continue because of my treatment at this facility! I highly recommend this place!
