What to Look for in an Amphetamine Rehab Center

Amphetamines are a class of drug and also refer to a specific drug name. Amphetamine was used by the military during WWII on both sides of the conflict to help soldiers stay awake during long battles and air fights. It became a common drug to abuse during the 1960s and 1970s but soon fell out of favor. Now, amphetamines as a drug class are more likely to be abused in the U.S. Amphetamine rehab is a requirement for those looking to quit amphetamines for good.

Methamphetamine, Adderall, ecstasy, and prescription drugs for weight loss are the most commonly abused amphetamines.

What are the health risks of prolonged use of an amphetamine?

Long-term use of amphetamines can result in adverse social and physical problems. Amphetamines cause damage to the brain cells, and recovering addicts may experience psychosis and paranoia, similar to that seen in schizophrenic patients. Also, many recovering addicts have problems with emotional stability and may fight with loved ones or impulsively break off romantic relationships.

Users may also experience financial problems from spending their money on amphetamines. They may also deal with the long-term legal fallout from running into problems with the law. Also, depression and anxiety, and long-term sleep problems are all common consequences of amphetamine addiction.

What does it take to reach lifelong sobriety from amphetamine abuse and addiction?

Addicts must undergo detox and rehab to kick an amphetamine habit safely. In addition, because drugs rewire a user’s neural pathways entirely, they are always susceptible to relapse. But, ongoing maintenance plans put in place by trained doctors and therapists can significantly reduce the chances of relapse. And if a relapse does occur, they can quickly stop it from getting any worse if the patient attends regular therapy sessions and sobriety meetings.

Is detox required as part of the treatment plan for an amphetamine addiction?

Yes. Detox gets the drug out of the patient’s system entirely. Also, in detox, doctors can safely monitor patients for dangerous withdrawal symptoms.

What treatment medications can help someone in rehab?

Amphetamine withdrawals can cause fatigue, sleeplessness, anxiety, and depression. In rehab, doctors can prescribe legal, safe sleep aids and antidepressants to lessen the severity of these symptoms.

What are the payment options for addiction treatment?

Some insurance plans cover inpatient rehab, therapy, and detox. But many addicts find themselves without insurance coverage or spotty coverage at best. Drug rehab centers are fully staffed with experts who know how to work with an insurance company to get addicts the help they need. In addition, these experts will know where to find government resources for people seeking treatment. Also, most rehab centers will work with the patient’s and their families on crafting a reasonable payment plan for the patient once they get clean and can hold down a job.

Because of the dangerous and long-term side effects of amphetamine abuse and addiction, getting treatment in a drug rehab center is crucial for recovering addicts. Doctors and therapists can monitor the patient over the long-term and prevent the risk of relapse and adverse side-effects of long-term amphetamine use.
