A 46-year-old female asked:
Disclaimer

A friend of mine is a long term methamphetamine user. How does she rehab at home? (She's more willing to do this then inpatient treatment.)

Outpatient rehab: I would strongly advise your friend to enter a rehab program. She could look for outpatient rehab programs in her area, as well as attend Narcotics Anonymous. An inpatient program may result in greater success with a lower chance of relapse. This needs to be taken very seriously.
