Enter an Inpatient Program for Adderall Detox

Every year in the United States, millions of people become addicted to Adderall, a legal prescription stimulant, and require the assistance of a medical Adderall detox facility to get rehabilitation. Since 2012, doctors began writing more prescriptions for Adderall for adults, even though the drug was initially used to treat Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) in children and adolescents. 

Adderall is not only used to correctly treat ADHD, but it is unfortunately also abused and used off-label. Adderall is used to enhance academic and career performance, to get ‘high’ as a party drug, and to lose weight. Using the drug incorrectly can lead to dependence and addiction.

Users experience euphoria, increased mental agility and alertness, decreased appetite and the need for sleep. As a stimulant and an amphetamine, it is an addictive substance, and the withdrawal symptoms are unpleasant and potentially deadly.

It is recommended that individuals suffering from Adderall addiction, not detox alone. Safe monitoring and support are needed to maintain a life-long recovery.

Can Adderall cause physical and psychological dependence?

Yes, Adderall can cause physical and psychological dependence. Adderall is an amphetamine and is used to increase focus and attention in the treatment for ADHD. People who abuse the drug do it to get the positive effects and euphoria from the drug.

Adderall increases dopamine levels in the brain. Dopamine is an essential brain chemical and is linked to concentration, focus, and energy. When Adderall is taken off-label and abused, dopamine levels will skyrocket and then crash as soon as the drug wears off.

The dopamine crash is characterized by depressed mood, fatigue, and brain fog. Other withdrawal symptoms include the following:

  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Stomach aches and cramping
  • Unusual tiredness and fatigue
  • Sleep disturbances
  • Depression and irritability

What are the most severe health issues to be concerned about with Adderall?

One of the most severe health consequences which can stem from Adderall abuse is depression.

Since dopamine is artificially increased with Adderall abuse, the brain is tricked into overproducing the substance. The cessation of Adderall causes a crash in the level, and the brain is unable to produce a normal amount of dopamine.

Depression is the result of decreased levels of dopamine. With depression comes a host of physical and emotional problems which can take a serious toll on an individual’s personal and financial life. Also, sufferers of depression are at increased risk of self-harm and suicide, making it doubly important for those in recovery from Adderall abuse to seek treatment in a controlled and supervised environment.

How long do withdrawal symptoms last?

Adderall withdrawal symptoms start about a day after cessation and can last for a few weeks. The depression that results in Adderall cessation can last for even longer since depression is a complex, difficult and stubborn problem to treat.

What medications can help treat withdrawal symptoms?

In a detox program and rehabilitation center, those in recovery can safely withdraw from Adderall under the care and supervision of medically trained staff and therapists.

Legal medications can be prescribed to lessen the severity of withdrawal symptoms, and depression can be accurately monitored and treated quickly and effectively in a detox program. Antidepressants, anti-nausea medications, and low-dose, safe sleep aids can be administered to those in recovery.

Going through withdrawal doesn’t need to be painful and isolating. Getting help from a detox center is an effective way to manage withdrawal symptoms with safe, legal medication and with the help of the trained and dedicated staff.
