Adderall Addiction Treatment & Rehab In Ohio

Adderall addiction treatment options at Ohio Recovery Center include drug detox programs, behavioral health services, mental health services, and aftercare planning.

In 2021, around 3.3 million prescription stimulants were dispensed to Ohio patients. The National Center for Drug Abuse Statistics states that Adderall makes up around 76 percent of all stimulant abuse in the U.S.

While Adderall prescriptions can successfully treat attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), Adderall is also a Schedule II controlled substance with a strong likelihood of abuse. 

Fortunately, amphetamine addiction treatment programs are available across Ohio, including inpatient care at Ohio Recovery Center.

When To Get Help For Adderall Addiction

Victims of Adderall abuse and addiction may suffer from poor health and decreased quality of life, along with serious side effects of the drug. Signs of Adderall addiction in yourself or a loved one may include:

  • aggression
  • loss of appetite
  • bouts of psychosis (mental disconnects from reality)
  • weight loss
  • withdrawal symptoms such as fatigue, insomnia, and drug cravings

Continued Adderall abuse despite these signs may lead to an increased risk of serious side effects such as heart attack, high heart rate and blood pressure, and cardiovascular collapse.

If you, a loved one, or a family member display these signs, you may be suffering from a substance use disorder, where you are unable to stop taking Adderall despite these negative effects. Treatment programs can intervene at this point and provide necessary treatment.

Adderall Addiction Treatment Options In Ohio

Treatment centers for prescription medication abuse in Ohio may offer either inpatient or outpatient programs. 

Inpatient programs may require patients to stay at a rehab center for the duration of your treatment, while outpatient programs may allow patients to return home at certain times.

The intensity of an amphetamine abuse treatment program may depend on the severity of your substance use disorder.

Drug Detoxification

A detoxification, or detox, program is the supervised process of cleansing harmful substances from your system. A medical detox program allows patients suffering from drug addiction to stop taking a harmful substance in a safe, controlled environment.

Medical detox programs in Ohio can improve the chances of a successful recovery compared to an at-home detox. During detox, healthcare professionals can manage your withdrawal symptoms and monitor your health. You may be asked to stay at a detox center for the duration of your treatment.

Withdrawal Management

Adderall withdrawal may last for several weeks after the last dose, depending on your history of Adderall use. Managing Adderall withdrawal can be crucial in successfully stopping Adderall abuse and avoiding relapse.

Adderall withdrawal management programs may include tapering, or the gradual decrease of your Adderall dose. Tapering can reduce the severity of withdrawal symptoms, and can be effective alongside other forms of treatment.

Behavioral Therapy

Behavioral therapy refers to forms of psychotherapy that attempt to address high-risk actions. Behavioral therapy can be effective in reducing or eliminating patterns of drug use, which are high-risk actions.

Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), which can help patients identify and avoid triggers that lead to high-risk drug use, may be a significant part of your treatment plan. Contingency management may also be used as a form of behavioral therapy.

Mental Health Services

Studies show that around 15 percent of ADHD patients also met the criteria for a substance use disorder, while only 5 percent of patients without ADHD met the same criteria. 

Patients with mental health conditions such as ADHD may be at a higher risk for drug abuse, and may require specific treatment.

Mental health services offered by Ohio treatment facilities can address mental problems that may contribute to a substance use disorder. Patients entering these programs can manage their mental health to avoid future instances of substance abuse.

Aftercare Planning

Adderall addiction treatment may not end when you complete the rehab program. Patients who return to their daily lives may be at a risk of relapse when exposed to triggers and stressful situations. Aftercare planning can help patients stay sober in the long term.

Aftercare planning may involve continuing therapy, attending support groups, or moving into sober living housing.

Ohio Populations At Risk For Adderall Addiction

Adderall addiction can affect any Ohioan taking the drug, including high school students, college students, young adults, and older adults.

The risk of Adderall addiction stems from the drug’s effects on the central nervous system. Adderall can increase amounts of dopamine and norepinephrine in the brain. 

During heavy Adderall use, the brain may lose its ability to produce these chemicals on their own, making quitting difficult.
