if i could take him there i would but since i cant what can i do?
Unfortunately, there really isn't anything you can give him at home that is likely to do any good. He may need drugs to lower his heartrate and blood pressure and to reverse the effects of the methamphetamines.

If you have any idea how much he ingested, you can call an Animal Poison Control Center. They can plug his weight and the amount ingested into a database and tell you whether or not the ingestion is likely to be life-threatening.

800-213-6680 Pet Poison Control ($35)
888-426-4435 Animal Poison Control Center (ASPCA, $65)

Beyond that, keeping him as calm as possible and avoiding sources of stimulus (bright light, loud noises, etc) may help to some extent. The drug should be fairly short-lived in his system, so if you can get him through the first few hours, you should be OK.

Hope that helps.

its been 4 hours since he ate it im sure it wasnt very much. will getting him to eat help?
If he has survived four hours, then the ingestion is not likely to be life-threatening. Food is not likely to make a difference, but return of appetite is a good sign for recovery.
