Detox for Amphetamine Addiction
Amphetamine is a type of medicine that is used treat a range of conditions such as attention deficit disorder, narcolepsy, and morbid obesity. It works by stimulating the central nervous system, and this is experienced as increased stamina, alertness, and at high doses a feeling of euphoria. To some people, the side-effects of amphetamine may be considered desirable (e.g. amphetamine is sometimes referred to as a 'party drug'), and there is a high potential for abuse and addiction.
If you, or somebody you care about, has become dependent on amphetamine, it can be incredibly challenging to quit. Withdrawal symptoms vary in severity, depending on the duration and extent of the abuse, but can include insomnia, anxiety, mood swings, irritability, and symptoms of depression. Entering a detox program can give you a chance of recovery because you will be supported as you undergo withdrawal and begin treatment.
Potential Same Day Placement: We might even be able to get you into a drug detox the same day you call us.

Detoxification for Adderall Addiction
Adderall contains amphetamine as well Dextroamphetamine - both of these substances act on the central nervous system as a stimulant. This drug is considered a performance enhancer, and it is now banned in the world of sports. It is still used medically for the treatment of narcolepsy and attention deficit disorder, and there is a high demand for this drug on the black market.
People who abuse Adderall can quickly develop a tolerance for this drug - this means they need to keep increasing the dose to get the same effect as before. This leads to addiction which then means the person will experience withdrawals should he/she decide to quit.
If you have become addicted to Adderall, you may experience withdrawal symptoms that can last up to 8 weeks should you try to quit. The risk of relapse is typically considered high during this time, but entering a residential detox could help you feel comfortable and supported as you begin treatment. Some people experience very low mood when they quit Adderall, and it can be helpful to be in a therapeutic environment when this happens.
Detox for Methamphetamine Addiction
Methamphetamine (meth, crystal meth, ice) is often considered to be the most dangerous of all the stimulant drugs. It doesn't take long for meth to completely take over a person's life.
One of the unique challenges people face when trying to quit methamphetamine is anhedonia. This is experienced as an inability to enjoy things that would once have been a source of pleasure. Experiencing anhedonia can be enough to suck away a person's commitment to recovery, and this is why it may be helpful to begin treatment in a supportive environment. The detox facility can provide a treatment team and therapists to ease the transition into treatment. Anhedonia may only be an issue in the very early days of recovery from methamphetamine.

Detox for Diet Pills Addiction
Those people who are morbidly obese may be prescribed diet pills under the direction of a physician. In this scenario, supervision while using this type of amphetamine can reduce the likelihood of addiction - although it can still happen. People who are not prescribed diet pills can view them as a quick way to lose weight, so they may buy this type of drug online or from a dealer. There is a high potential for addiction with amphetamine even if the person only intends to use this drug for weight loss.
It can be difficult to admit that you have become addicted to diet pills, but doing so is an important first step toward recovery. An inpatient detox program can provide the right environment in which you can begin rebuilding your life - it can also mean that you will be medically supervised and kept as comfortable as possible while you go through withdrawal.
If you are currently dealing with amphetamine addiction in your life, you can contact our representatives for no-obligation information about treatment options. There are now many inpatient detox centers that specialize in amphetamine addiction, and we may be able to direct you to a center that is appropriate for your unique needs and circumstances.
