Yaba addictio is very dangerous and full recovery takes time.
by: Debbie Wicker

Dear Shah,

I'm so terribly sorry that you're struggling with Yaba addiction. Yaba is a mixture of methamphetamine and caffeine. Because it contains methamphetamine medical supervision is usually required for withdrawal and detoxification.

Abuse of methamphetamine changes the brain chemistry and withdrawal is the process the brain goes through in order to return to it's original state. Medical support (help from a doctor), can EASE the symptoms caused by the withdrawal process by prescribing medications easing the negative symptoms of this process.

Therefore I have two recommendations for you as you stop using Yaba:

1. Call a doctor and let them know that you're addicted to Yaba and want medical support for detoxification. This support is likely needed for at least three months.

2. Start attending Alcoholic Anonymous (AA) or Narcotics Anonymous (NA) meetings DAILY!


AA and NA programs use a process called the 12- Steps. This program was developed over the last 150 years and has been shown by clinical research to be VERY effective at helping you to end your Yaba addiction.

There is an old saying in AA that "the steps work if you work them". You need to go to AA and NA meetings and start working the 12-steps.

If you do these two things you will find that you can successfully end your addiction to Yaba. Remember, Yaba addiction is a disease of the brain and left untreated it is almost always fatal. If you start working the 12-steps you can learn how to recover from these terrible disease.

Family support is also very useful. If you have family or loved ones, ask them to start working the steps with you. They can attend Al-anon while your attending AA or NA.

The more support you get, the more likely you will be successful at ending your addiction.

Good Luck,

Debbie
