The Whitehaven Clinic is accredited to deliver the Addiction Recovery Process Program through its day rehab clinic in Perth. This is a comprehensive treatment program designed to identify and treat the underlying root cause of addictive behaviours and problematic use including ice. Our ice Day Rehab Clinic is based in Burswood, Perth, and offers specialised treatment plans, counselling and programs designed specifically for people at any level of their addiction.

 

Understanding ice addiction and the challenges to stop

Crystal methamphetamine (‘ice’) is a stimulant drug, which means it speeds up the messages travelling between the brain and body. It’s stronger and has more harmful side effects than the powder form of methamphetamine known as speed.

 

The effects of ice differ slightly from speed and base because it is often a purer form of methamphetamine, meaning it gives a stronger and longer lasting ‘high’. Because of this, it also has more and serious side effects, both during use and in the ‘crash’ phase after use. This is why, compared to other forms of methamphetamine, ice has a greater potential for the person using the drug to develop and other long-term physical and mental health problems.

 

Regular ice users can quickly become dependent and may feel they need ice to go about normal activities like working, studying and socialising, or just to get through the day.  The longer someone uses ice they will gradually develop a tolerance to it, which means they need to use larger amounts, more often, to get the same effect.

 

Individuals may develop drug-induced psychosis when using ice at high doses or for extended periods. This psychological condition is characterised by people experiencing strange beliefs, paranoia, experiencing things that may not be there, and potentially exhibiting unpredictable behaviour which can be violent and erratic. These symptoms usually disappear a few days after the person stops using ice.

 

Regular ice users will often experience declining mental health as they start to lose enjoyment of everyday activities, get stressed easily and experience mood swings and agitation, especially when coming down.  These changes can lead to longer term mental health issues such as anxiety and depression.  Side effects can continue for several weeks, or even months, after stopping use.

 

Other side effects that ice users can experience include:

 

  • extreme weight loss due to reduced appetite
  • restless sleep
  • dry mouth and dental problems
  • regular colds or flu
  • trouble concentrating
  • breathlessness
  • muscle stiffness
  • heart and kidney problems
  • increased risk of stroke
  • financial, work or social problems

 

Smoking ice has also been associated with a range of lung complications including coughing, wheezing, difficulty breathing and coughing up blood. The smoking of methamphetamine, or ice, may cause or increase the symptoms of asthma and increases the risk of developing emphysema.

The Whitehaven Clinic’s Day Rehab Program for Ice Addiction

 

The Whitehaven Clinic is Perth’s leading private methamphetamine and ice rehab clinic.  We offer a comprehensive treatment program designed to address the physical, emotional, and psychological aspects of problematic methamphetamine and ice use and addiction. Our Day Rehab Program is tailored specifically for your unique treatment needs and is delivered one-on-one in a supportive and caring environment.

 

Your attendance to our program is completely confidential.  There are no group sessions, nor do we use a 12-step program.  Instead, we use world’s best practice in a proprietary based program that combines different treatment modalities into one comprehensive program.

 

All program facilitators and counsellors are accredited to use our proprietary based Addiction Recovery Process Program in our Day Rehab program in Perth.  Our services are delivered to ensure an excellent standard of care and professionalism.

 

Our Day Rehab Program Process

Day rehab is a structured and comprehensive treatment option designed to provide support and therapeutic interventions for you while you are struggling with problematic use, dependency or addiction for methamphetamine or ice.

 

Unlike residential rehabilitation, you will attend your appointment each day and then return home or to work, allowing you to maintain your daily routines and responsibilities while receiving the necessary support and treatment. Attendance at our Perth Day Rehab clinic starts daily for the first three weeks and then tapers down over a 12 – 14 week period, with an ongoing maintenance program.

 

If possible, we recommend that you take three weeks leave for the initial part of your program to ensure that you get the best from the program and are able to focus on your health. This is highly recommended if you are required to do a medical detox.

 

Methamphetamine and Ice Addiction Recovery Programs for Family and Partners

Research shows that family and partners are an important part of a client’s support network, but they also need support and help navigating through the recovery journey for ice addiction.

 

Our programs are designed to have separate family and/or partner sessions so that they can learn and develop strategies to best support you in your recovery journey.

 

Aftercare & Support

Recovery is an ongoing process, and aftercare support is essential for long-term success.  This is why The Whitehaven Clinic provides ongoing maintenance and aftercare programs, that includes ongoing counselling and relapse prevention strategies, to ensure continued support after you have completed a day rehab program.
