This booklet has been written for people who are thinking about stopping or wanting to stop using methamphetamine, even just for a while.

Information in this booklet will help you understand what’s going on in withdrawal. There are also suggestions about how to make it easier on yourself and the people you care for. You may also find it helpful to talk it over with your GP or other health care worker.

No booklet can cover everyone’s experience of withdrawal as we are all unique, but there is a good chance you will find something useful in here.

You may also find other options such as counselling, alternative therapies and self help groups such as NA and peer support groups helpful to support you through withdrawal.

The Alcohol Drug Helpline has a specialist Methamphetamine Service with trained workers available for telephone support 10am to 10 pm, 7 days a week.
