Adderall

Holistic Adderall Addiction Treatment Program

End your battle with Adderall addiction with our medically-assisted, patient-focused detox program

Adderal is a prescription amphetamine typically used to treat symptoms of attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). It’s classified as a central nervous system stimulant, so people who are looking for a stimulant high may abuse it. Adderall abuse will build a tolerance to the drug, causing the person to use more to achieve the desired high and the possibility of withdrawal symptoms to increase.

The withdrawal symptoms of Adderall addiction make it hard for users to quit on their own. Some common withdrawal symptoms are depression, irritability, headaches, insomnia, and difficulty concentrating. It is important to keep in mind that recovery is possible, especially with a medical detox at a treatment facility.

The first step in our Adderall addiction treatment program is a medical detox with a licensed doctor to keep patients as safe and comfortable as possible. After the medical detox is complete, we move on to the next steps in the rehab process.

How do I know if I’m addicted to Adderall?

No one intends to become addicted to Adderall; usually, the problem begins as a way of increasing productivity. It is often abused by users who don’t have a prescription for Adderall.

If you do have a prescription for it, it is still possible to abuse it if you don’t follow the doctor’s orders. Before you know it, you’re taking it every day or needing more to feel its effects.

Common signs of Adderall addiction:

  • Needing larger doses to feel the effects of the drug
  • Taking the drug even if you know it’s causing harm
  • Not being able to finish work without Adderall
  • Being unable to feel alert without the drug
  • Spending a lot of money getting the drug
  • Insomnia
  • Hallucinations
  • Depression
  • Irregular heartbeat
  • Paranoia
  • Convulsions

If you have any or several of these physical or behavioral symptoms, please contact Harris House today at 314-328-7938 to talk with one of our counselors about an evaluation and admission.

Adderall abuse by teens and young adults is particularly common because stress and time management issues in high school and college make the perceived effects of the drug more appealing.

According to SAMHSA’s National Survey on Drug Use and Health, in 2015, 425,000 teens between the ages of 12 and 17 reported abuse of prescriptions drugs like Adderall. The amount increases to approximately 2.5 million among young adults ages 18-25, which is almost 5 times more.
