If you are doing speed every day you cannot just stop cold. You must step down, over time. Even with this, possible psychotic reactions can happen and need to be treated with AP's. Use of benzos really depends as adding an addictive med while trying to quit another is not best for some people. It really depends on the specific person.
Significant to crushing depression almost always results from quiting speed, even with a good taper, Once off speed it can take 1-2 months for any energy to come back. AD's and supportaive thearpy are needed to get thru this fragile time when one feel like hell and is most likely to resume speed to feel better. Nutrition and supplements really help here.

If one has been a regular user of speed (at levels of abuse) for some time it can take a year of supportive meds to get back to normal.

One also needs to ask if the speed use was self medication, and assess the condition and best treatments. Sometimes stims are the best treatment and it is possible to use them again
in a non abuse setting without problems, but this varies between people.
