What is adderall?

Understanding Adderall Addiction

For those with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), Adderall is a powerful tool to help improve focus, increase attention span, and improve work and academic productivity. However, there is also a darker side to Adderall’s use. Individuals are using Adderall even when they do not suffer from ADHD, in order to stay focused, decrease appetite, and improve performance in their career or at school. Unfortunately, those who use Adderall in a way that is not in line with doctor’s orders often develop drug abuse problems associated with the drug.

At Enlight Treatment Center, our goal is to help you end your struggle with addiction, and give you your life back. Whether you were prescribed Adderall by a doctor and realized symptoms of withdrawal, or took Adderall in a recreational capacity, our team of addiction specialists is supportive, compassionate, and non-judgmental. Perhaps most importantly, they are here to support you on your unique journey to sobriety.

Adderall is a stimulant, similar to meth. Because of the ease of  access and the stimulant effect it has on the brain, Adderall is extremely addictive. As with many substances, those who use Adderall may find they need a higher dose to get the desired effect. This requires an individual to continually use higher doses of the drug, which can lead to challenging side effects in the long run.

As with any prescription drug, Adderall can be abused, even if you have a legitimate prescription for ADHD. Depression and mood swings when not taking Adderall are an indicator that an individual is addicted to Adderall.

Is a Professional Adderall Detox Necessary?

Due to the mental and physical withdrawal symptoms associated with quitting Adderall cold turkey, a medical detox program is highly recommended. Our team at Enlight Treatment Center provides professional detox services with a team of professionals who are well versed in understanding addiction and its effect on emotional, mental, and physical health.

Stimulant withdrawal symptoms can be difficult to manage, and our team is prepared to offer medical advice when necessary, as well as mental health care to manage challenging emotions associated with withdrawal from Adderall. This level of support is often necessary to prevent relapse and long-term addiction recovery.

The next steps to recovery

Pursing Addiction Treatment After Adderall Detox

Adderall detox is only the first step in long-term recovery. Addiction treatment programs are necessary to understand the root of addiction and why addictive tendencies occurred in the first place.

At Enlight, our addiction treatment programs provide compassionate care and a focus on mental healthcare and coping skill development. These aspects are crucial for those abusing Adderall as it provides a plan of action when triggers arise, and a more thorough understanding of mental health concerns that may have led to the substance abuse. Remember, symptoms of Adderall addiction do not go away when Adderall withdrawal and detox are complete. Understanding the emotional and mental side of substance abuse is crucial for sustainable sobriety.
