Find an Inpatient Facility for Amphetamine Detox

Amphetamines are highly addictive drugs that cause serious health, legal, and societal consequences. Referred to as ‘uppers’ on the street, amphetamines can come in legal and illegal forms, such as methamphetamine, Ritalin, and Concerta. Amphetamines cause the user to feel euphoric, energetic, and focused, and can cause hallucinations, agitation and violence, and even death. It’s imperative that an amphetamine detox center is employed to get rehabilitation.

Fortunately, there are trained medical professionals and facilities available to loved ones and those suffering from amphetamine addiction. This article will discuss the withdrawal symptoms, treatment options, and why amphetamine users and their loved ones should find an amphetamine detox center and get the help they need.

Do amphetamines cause physical and psychological dependence?amphetamine detox center

Yes, amphetamines cause physical and psychological dependence.

When an amphetamine or any drug is taken repeatedly and (if it is a prescription) incorrectly, the risk of developing a habit forms. Dependence occurs when once the drug is ceased, withdrawal symptoms occur. At this point, the user is then firmly hooked on the drug, and cannot stop without experiencing unpleasant withdrawal symptoms.

How long do amphetamine withdrawal symptoms last?

Amphetamine withdrawal symptoms start as soon as the drug wears off. Symptoms last anywhere from several days to several weeks.

How painful can amphetamine withdrawal be?

The symptoms of withdrawal are painful, unpleasant, and scary.

Symptoms include the following:

  • Depression
  • Irritability
  • Sleep disturbances
  • Changes in appetite and eating habits
  • Mood swings
  • Psychotic symptoms and hallucinations

The user is at increased risk of relapse while undergoing the withdrawal phase. Users often relapse because the symptoms are so unpleasant, coupled with the usual cravings for the drug. The irritability, mood swings, and psychotic features can be terrifying for loved ones and family.  

What medications can be used to treat withdrawal symptoms?

There are no medications that can prevent the start of withdrawal symptoms, but legal medications can be administered to help the patient sleep or to lessen the severity of depression or stomach upset.

How can a medical amphetamine detox center help?

In a medical amphetamine detox facility, the patient is under the care and supervision of trained and dedicated medical staff. Medications can be administered to help the patient manage the symptoms of depression while they undergo withdrawal.

If psychotic features are present during the withdrawal phase, the individual is kept safe from harming themselves or others. Also, this lessens the blow to the family, since they will not have to see their loved one in this state or risk harm to themselves.

A medical detox facility also keeps the patient from seeking out amphetamines, thus preventing them from relapsing. Medical amphetamine detox facilities also give patients individualized on-going treatment plans, making life-long recovery possible.
