ADHD Medication Addiction Treatment

Depending on ADHD Medication

ADHD Medications encompass a wide range of stimulant drugs like Ritalin and Adderall, which are prescribed to help those with attention disorders to focus and be more productive. Although some of these drugs may have legitimate uses when prescribed by a doctor, they are also very powerful stimulants with a high potential abuse profile. If untreated, an addiction to ADHD meds can lead to a wide range of negative effects on body and mind, including cardiac arrhythmia, hypertension and even seizures in severe cases. Fortunately, the West Coast Rehab offers a professional staff and a wide range of evidence-based treatment to help patients overcome their dependence on ADHD medication .

Putting ADHD Medications in the Past

Because ADHD medications can cause real symptoms of physical dependence, many clients at West Coast Rehab must begin treatment by going through a medically supervised detox. During detox, clients stabilize and return to baseline health so that treatment can be more effective and complete. Everyone staying at West Coast Rehab gets their own private room and a personal drug counselor to meet with for individual therapy. Treatment at West Coast Rehab is evidence-based and based in neuroscience, with methods including CBT, Motivational Interviewing, mindfulness, relapse prevention, family therapy and 12-step support. There are always more staff on site than there are clients to guarantee individual attention, and family therapy is also available for those who need it.
