How to Help a Loved One Get Treatment for Ritalin Addiction


The Challenge

It isn’t always easy to convince someone they need help for Ritalin addiction. But if they are in denial, your involvement may be essential, since they are unlikely to seek help on their own until they’ve reached rock bottom. Ultimately, your participation in your loved one’s recovery can bring them back from the brink of disaster.

Recognizing Ritalin Addiction

If your family member or friend is struggling with Ritalin abuse, you can play a role in their decision to seek medical assistance. Some of the telltale signs of Ritalin abuse and dependency to watch out for include:

  • Frequent mood swings
  • Insomnia
  • Bouts of anxiety and agitation
  • Breathing problems
  • Paranoia
  • Poor appetite
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Hallucinations
  • Seizures
  • Overdoses

When such symptoms are observed, the time to act is immediately, before drug use escalates even further and puts your loved one in more danger.

Get Help for Yourself

Your loved one’s drug abuse can put you under an enormous strain. To cope with your feelings, you and other members of your family may want to consider joining a support group for those who are impacted by someone else’s drug abuse. Fortunately, groups sponsored by organizations like Nar-Anon are available in most communities.

Consider an Interventionist

People addicted to drugs are often resistant when encouraged to seek help. For this reason, hiring a trained, professional interventionist to supervise an organized intervention may be a wise decision. An interventionist can help your family and friends coordinate their efforts to be as persuasive as possible, improving your chances of convincing your loved one to enter a treatment facility.

If you’re interested in contracting an interventionist, please contact our admissions department to discuss your options.

Lasting Change for a Better Life


The Courage to Change

Your goal when entering treatment is profound and lasting change. Drug addiction is a powerful foe, and only by investing your time and energy in recovery can you expect to alter your past patterns of behavior. In treatment you’ll be challenged, but if you’re truly ready to change you’ll find the ability to rise to the occasion.

Better Drug Treatment Outcomes

To achieve the most sustainable results, our 90-day inpatient recovery program is highly recommended. This immersive recovery experience offers a golden opportunity to permanently alter your behavior to exclude Ritalin and other drugs from your life. Extended treatment is especially critical if you have co-occurring mental health conditions that also require intervention.

Continuing care following the cessation of formal treatment will further increase your chances of long-term success, as your newfound sobriety receives valuable reinforcement in individual and peer-group therapy.

Working and Healing Together

Lasting life transformation is an ambitious goal. But it is within your grasp, if you are resolute in your desire to regain control over your fate. Your participation in our evidence-based treatment program for Ritalin addiction can be a true turning point. Customized treatment under the compassionate care of trained professionals at Alta Mira can reverse your downward spiral, helping you overcome your substance use issues before they steal any more of your future.
