Can I withdraw from meth at home?

Meth is extraordinarily damaging to your body, and can have lasting hazardous effects on your health. Withdrawal can last from 7-10 days in total, with acute withdrawal happening 2-3 days after last use. People can detox from meth at home, but it is recommended you are in a safe environment with no access to drugs and with enlisted help from a support group. If you are at risk for long term withdrawal symptoms, then home detox may not be the best option.

Some medications have helped with detoxing from meth, although no over the counter drugs are used specifically to treat meth withdrawal. They include bupropion, with is an antidepression that has helped in less severe addictions, dextroamphetamine which is a drug used for ADHD that can reduce cravings and withdrawal symptoms but did not stop meth use, and Modafinil, which is a stimulant used to treat excessive sleepiness.
