Hello and thank you for using JustAnswer. I am very sorry that you have been struggling with this level of addiction to methamphetamine, I can understand how distressing this can be for you. May I ask have you considered entering into a rehabilitation facility or contacting your county's or city's substance abuse services for treatment options?

However the intake process is not something I want to endure. And my dependency on the government is NONE and I would like to keep it that way.

Well you can consider entering into one on one individual therapy with a psychologist that specializes in Dual Diagnosis, but this will only address the addition and underlying causes of said addiction, it will not address any detox issues you may have.
