In brief: Same as other drugs.

Withdrawal from these drugs is usually not life threatening and so in patient detox is not approved by medical insurance companies.
These drugs are highly addicting and relapse risk is high. We have no drug treatments specifically for these stimulant drug addictions. A 30 day rehab or residential treatment maybe your best bet followed by intensive out patient care.
