Enterhealth Ranch provides treatment for stimulant addiction. Stimulants such as cocaine and various amphetamines (especially methamphetamine, certain designer drugs like MDMA and bath salts) are popular drugs of abuse; their users span the entire spectrum of social and economic classes. People as young as 12 and as old as 75 can find themselves hooked on cocaine in its various forms, or on methamphetamine. Street names include speed, uppers, bennies, white crosses, dexies and crystal.
STIMULANT ADDICTION TREATMENT
“Because they begin with the knowledge that addiction is a brain disease, they employ the latest medical advances to combat the damage done to the brain's neurotransmitters. This helps to restore serotonin levels and combat cravings, giving the brain a chance to heal so that recovery can move forward.”ROBIN HARPER

Stimulant withdrawal stabilization
Enterhealth Ranch provides supervised drug and alcohol detox (also known as withdrawal stabilization) services for stimulant addiction with 24-hour nursing and medical staff available at any hour of the day. Stimulant withdrawal can produce profound loss of energy and very intense cravings, which frequently result in relapse back to using and even death. Because the medical team at Enterhealth Ranch is able to keep the stimulant abuser safe and comfortable during this very dangerous time, the patient’s chances to start treatment and a new life of recovery are greatly enhanced.
What can I expect?
Some people use stimulants to counteract the drowsiness or “down” caused by sleeping pills or alcohol. The “up/down” cycle is extremely dangerous and hard on the body. Remember, Enterhealth doctors are also very skilled at managing the physical part of the addiction by getting the stimulants out of the person’s system. The type of drug used affects how long it takes for the stimulant withdrawal symptoms to subside. Someone addicted to cocaine tends to have a shorter withdrawal time compared with those addicted to prescription stimulants such as Adderall.
Stimulant withdrawal symptoms vary in severity and duration depending on specific drug, dose, and duration of use. They usually begin to occur within twenty-four hours of the last dose of stimulant. Potential stimulant withdrawal symptoms include anxiety, chronic fatigue, irritability, difficulty concentrating, nausea, diarrhea, excessive hunger, depression, lethargy, and significant problems with memory and thinking.
