In brief: Seek support

Treatment for amphetamine addiction involves rehab counseling that can either be done on an outpatient basis or residential treatment (or inpatient) depending on the severity.
Sometimes there are other psychiatric disorders that are co-occurring with the addiction and thus it is good to have an evaluation to see if other treatments for other disorders are necessary.
