Treatment options for Adderall addiction

Enterhealth’s approach to treating Adderall addiction is rooted in the belief that it is a complex medical condition that requires a holistic approach to address the underlying physical and psychological factors in addition to the substance abuse itself. That’s why we combine medical and pharmacological treatment with behavioral therapy and psychological care to help patients return to a healthy, productive, and stable life.

Treatment typically begins with supervised medical detox, also known as withdrawal stabilization, which allows our 24/7 medical staff to closely monitor patients as the Adderall is removed from their system. To help alleviate any physical and psychological discomfort associated with withdrawal, medical staff may prescribe anti-addiction drugs and other medications.

It’s important to note that while medical detox is an essential first step, it is NOT a cure for Adderall addiction.

After detox, patients can participate in our long-term program of behavioral therapy and psychological counseling. Therapy and counseling may be delivered in individual or group settings and may also involve families. We also offer ongoing continuing care programs that provide patients with counseling and support for as long as they need it, promoting long-term recovery.

At Enterhealth, we’re committed to providing patients with the highest quality care and support they need to overcome addiction and achieve lasting recovery.

“FPO – When I first arrived here, I truly believed I would never be able to function without drugs or alcohol, nor be happy in general ever again. My family did not know how to help me. After being here, I’m a happier person. Laughter comes naturally. I’m repairing relationships I thought were irreparable.”

Frequently Asked Questions About Adderall Addiction

What is Adderall?

Adderall is a prescription medication that contains a combination of two central nervous system (CNS) stimulants: amphetamine and dextroamphetamine. It is used primarily to treat Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) and narcolepsy, a condition that causes excessive sleepiness during the day.

How do people use Adderall?

Adderall is typically taken orally, in tablet form, and is available in both immediate-release and extended-release formulations. The immediate-release formulation is usually taken two to three times daily, while the extended-release formulation is taken once a day. It is important to follow the dosage instructions provided by a healthcare professional to avoid misuse and potential side effects.

However, some people abuse Adderall by taking it without a prescription or by taking higher doses than prescribed. This is often done to achieve a sense of euphoria or to enhance academic or athletic performance. Some people may also crush the tablets and snort the powder, which can result in a more intense and immediate high. Adderall abuse can lead to addiction, health problems, and other negative consequences.

How does Adderall work?

Adderall works by increasing the levels of two neurotransmitters in the brain: dopamine and norepinephrine. These chemicals are responsible for regulating attention, focus, and behavior. By increasing their levels, Adderall helps to improve attention span, increase alertness, and reduce hyperactivity and impulsivity in people with ADHD.

In addition to its use in treating ADHD, Adderall has also been used off-label to treat depression, bipolar disorder, and other conditions. However, it is important to note that such use is not supported by the FDA and can be dangerous without proper medical supervision.

How addictive is Adderall?

Adderall is classified as a Schedule II drug by the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), indicating a high potential for abuse and addiction. Prolonged use or abuse of Adderall can lead to physical and psychological dependence. It is important to take Adderall only as prescribed and to discuss any concerns about dependence with a healthcare professional.

What are the side effects of Adderall?

The most common side effects of Adderall include:

  • Loss of appetite
  • Insomnia
  • Nausea
  • Headache
  • Dry mouth
  • Anxiety
  • Restlessness
  • Irritability
  • Dizziness

These side effects are typically mild and go away with continued use of the medication.

Less common side effects include:

  • Increased heart rate
  • High blood pressure
  • Agitation
  • Hallucinations
  • Seizures
  • Mania

These side effects can be more serious and require medical attention.

How long does Adderall stay in your system?

The half-life of Adderall is about 10 hours, which means that it takes approximately 50 hours (5 half-lives) for the drug to be eliminated from the body. However, the exact time it takes for Adderall to be eliminated can vary depending on factors such as age, metabolism, and dosage.

It is important to note that drug tests can detect Adderall in the body for up to several days after the last use. This can depend on factors such as the type of drug test used, the frequency and dosage of use, and individual metabolism.

What are Adderall withdrawal symptoms?

Adderall withdrawal symptoms can include:

  • Fatigue
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Irritability
  • Insomnia
  • Increased appetite
  • Cravings for the drug

How do you treat Adderall withdrawal?

Treatment for Adderall withdrawal may involve gradually tapering off the medication under medical supervision, as well as addressing any underlying mental health issues that may have contributed to the addiction. Behavioral therapies, such as cognitive-behavioral therapy, may also be used to help individuals overcome addiction and maintain sobriety.

How long does Adderall withdrawal last?

The duration of Adderall withdrawal can vary depending on factors such as the individual’s history of use, the dosage and duration of use, and any underlying mental health conditions. In general, Adderall withdrawal symptoms may persist for several weeks or even months after discontinuing use of the drug.

Can you overdose on Adderall?

Yes, it is possible to overdose on Adderall. Symptoms of an Adderall overdose can include:

  • Agitation
  • Restlessness
  • Tremors
  • Confusion
  • Hallucinations
  • Panic
  • Irregular heartbeat
  • High blood pressure
  • Seizures

In severe cases, an Adderall overdose can be life-threatening and require emergency medical attention. Overdose can be more likely in people who take large doses of Adderall, take it more frequently than prescribed, or use it in combination with other drugs or alcohol.
