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. The side-effects of amphetamine are considered desirable in many situations (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 the best chance of recovery because you will be supported every step of the way.

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. Recreational drug users tend to crush Adderall tablets in order to snort or inject it.
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 high 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 temptation to relapse is going to be high during this time, but entering a residential detox will mean you are kept comfortable and supported as you begin your recovery. Some people experience very low mood when they quit Adderall, and it can be important to be in a therapeutic environment when this happens.
Detox for Methamphetamine Addiction
Methamphetamine (meth, crystal meth, ice) is considered to be the most dangerous of all the stimulant drugs. People will usually start off using this substance so they can party all night, but it doesn't take long for meth to complete take over a person's life. The fear of withdrawal symptoms, or the inability to imagine life without methamphetamine, can keep people hooked on this drug until it has completely destroyed their 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 is so important to begin recovery in a supportive environment. Entering detox means there will be a medical team and therapists around to ease transition to recovery. Anhedonia will usually only be an issue in the very early days of recovery from methamphetamine.
