Residential Treatment for Adderall Addiction

Adderall is a prescription stimulant that can produce dependency if used contrary to a physician’s recommendations. It is an appropriate treatment for ADHD and narcolepsy, but many people take it for other reasons—none of which are legitimate. Alta Mira’s residential treatment program for Adderall addiction relies on evidence-based therapies to deliver excellent results, and when those who become addicted to this medication accept our expert help, their chances of recovery increase exponentially.

Since it is available legally by prescription, people who misuse Adderall don’t perceive the danger. This ignorance can lead to Adderall addiction, but once treatment begins, this type of dependency can be overcome with a steady, sustained effort and the skilled assistance of highly trained addiction recovery specialists.

Residential treatment for Adderall addiction at Alta Mira is administered by talented, compassionate, and experienced experts who can help you or your loved one regain your sobriety and free you from your Adderall dependency.

Adderall is a prescription stimulant that contains different types of amphetamines. It is used primarily to treat attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) in people of all ages. Despite its stimulating effects on the central nervous system, it actually helps those who have ADHD calm down and become more focused. The drug may also be prescribed as an antidote for narcolepsy, which can cause severe drowsiness and sudden and unwanted sleep.

While it has legitimate uses, Adderall is often obtained illicitly and taken for its stimulating effects by those who have no medical condition. Adderall is abused in this way by high school and college students who use it to improve their stamina, alertness, and concentration while preparing for exams or finishing difficult assignments. It is also sometimes taken by athletes looking for a boost in performance, or by men and women trying to counteract job-related stress or fatigue.

This pattern of irresponsible use is a recipe for disaster. The use of Adderall for non-medical purposes has been linked to many cases of addiction, and when Adderall dependency develops, treatment will be needed to halt the disturbing progression of this serious medical condition.

Our treatment plans for Adderall addiction are comprehensive and multilayered. They include:

  • Safe, supervised detox. Adderall withdrawal symptoms can undermine recovery, which makes medical detox the safest and most sensible first stop for those who are ready to enter residential treatment. Round-the-clock medical care for withdrawal symptoms and other chronic health problems can be provided at our facility during a 7- to 14-day detox period, as a precursor to formal addiction treatment. The gradual tapering of Adderall dosages will begin at this time, and new medications may be administered in response to any co-occurring mental health disorders that may have been diagnosed.
  • Comprehensive diagnostic services. From your initial psychiatric evaluation to your individualized neuropsychological testing, we work to develop the most accurate diagnostic profile possible. Depending on each individual client’s detox, identifying underlying co-occurring issues can take several weeks.Individual, group, and family therapy sessions. Daily individual therapy and regular group and family therapy form the core element of an Alta Mira recovery program. Evidence-based therapies that are designed to break the cycle of substance abuse and strengthen the commitment to sobriety will be introduced, along with therapies that can help those with co-occurring conditions manage troublesome mental health symptoms.
  • Healing wellness services. Holistic and experiential therapies at Alta Mira are vital elements in most treatment plans. Participation in these activities will boost self-esteem, help reduce stress, and provide you with healthy and fulfilling outlets for enjoyment and self-expression.
  • Continuing care. Continuing care programs provided by Alta Mira act as a hedge against relapse, providing regular and reliable access to individual, group, and family therapy, and other forms of wellness services, for months after the cessation of formal treatment. Recovery is an ongoing affair, and continuing care programs help reinforce the impact of long-term, residential interventions.

Adderall addiction is a serious behavioral health disorder. But our multilevel treatment plans are comprised of evidence-based therapies and supplemental healthcare services that have helped many people overcome this condition.

Effective Treatments for Co-Occurring Disorders with Adderall Addiction

Adderall addiction is frequently linked to ongoing mental health problems. People who misuse prescription drugs are often self-medicating for undiagnosed mental disorders, and their reliance on these medications can mask the reality of their situations. Alta Mira’s treatment plans for Adderall addiction frequently include services for co-occurring mental health disorders, which are complications that must be addressed once they’ve been diagnosed.

We Ensure We’re Treating the Right Thing

Men and women who abuse Adderall often have previously unrecognized anxiety disorders that interfere with functioning, or mood disorders that leave them feeling low on energy and motivation. People with personality disorders may also turn to drugs and alcohol, to deal with chaotic emotions they don’t know how to manage.

Our diagnostic evaluations are comprehensive and designed to detect all types of mental health disorders, in addition to revealing the true nature of each client’s struggles with substance abuse. Your Alta Mira treatment plan will be personalized to fit your full diagnosis, thereby maximizing your odds of a successful treatment outcome.

Addiction treatment protocols frequently evolve based on the latest scientific findings. Alta Mira addiction specialists make a great effort to stay up-to-date on the most recent research, which is one reason why they’re recognized as world-class experts in the addiction treatment field.

Our recovery professionals produce tremendous results because they create customized treatment plans for each client, in recognition of the fact that drug dependency manifests differently in each individual.

Holistic and Experiential Therapies for Mind, Body, and Spirit

Adderall addiction thrives on stress, which is why you’ll benefit from learning stress-reducing, holistic healing methodologies like yoga, meditation, acupuncture, equine therapy, music therapy, or arts therapy, to name a few of your options.

Our experiential therapies are yet another attractive addition to our treatment regimens. Invigorating activities like zip-lining, rock climbing, hiking, kayaking, and horseback riding will test your limits and strengthen your determination to persevere, through hard times and other challenging moments.

Alta Mira treatment plans are carefully structured to ensure sustainable healing. Co-occurring conditions will provide additional challenges, but you’ll have the support of empathic medical experts who can motivate your best efforts and help release your latent potential for self-transcendence and personal transformation.

How to Help a Loved One Get Treatment for Adderall Addiction

Prescription medications like Adderall can produce fierce drug dependency when they’re used exclusively for their mind-altering effects. If someone you love has been taking Adderall to help them stay alert and awake while studying or working, or just to get high, you need to educate them about the grave risks associated with the abuse of this drug.

Adderall addiction is just as hazardous and potentially as deadly as any other type of drug dependency. If your loved one’s misuse of it has morphed into abuse and addiction, it will have profoundly negative effects on their life that will become increasingly apparent over time.

If your loved one refuses to seek evaluation and treatment for their Adderall abuse, y consider organizing an intervention, in coordination with a trained specialist who understands how an intervention should work.

At Alta Mira, we can help you find a skilled interventionist in your area, and we can answer any questions you have about diagnostic procedures and residential treatment for Adderall addiction. Once you convince your loved one the time has come to seek help, we’ll consult with you and advise you throughout the admissions process, to make sure your whole family understands what the coming months will entail.

You’ll have the opportunity to contribute directly to your loved one’s recovery as well, through your participation in dynamic family therapy sessions and enrollment in our innovative four-day family program, which focuses on education, relapse prevention, and preparing for life at home after treatment ends.
