There are countless prescription medications that individuals are addicted to, and Adderall is one of the most common of these medications. This stimulant medication offers relief from the symptoms that individuals experience as a result of attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). Also, the chemical properties within this drug are also known to increase one’s energy, trigger the onset of hyperfocus, increase motivation, and enhance productivity, which can be very attractive to those who do not possess a medical need for this drug. In addition, when consumed recreationally or for purposes that are outside of medical guidelines, Adderall can bring on a slight sense of euphoria, an increase in confidence, and decrease appetite, which are all highly appealing to some individuals. The abuse of Adderall, or Adderall use disorder, refers to a cycle of behavior where individuals consume Adderall for reasons that are not prescribed. Those addicted to Adderall will keep consuming this substance despite feeling the negative effects that can occur as a result of that use. Even as negative physical and mental health effects occur, as soon as an Adderall addiction has developed, it can be very hard to overcome and stop the use of this drug.

At Huntington Creek Recovery Center in Pennsylvania, we realize the challenges that the men and women of the Northeast face when attempting to defeat an Adderall addiction, which is why we have developed comprehensive programming options that are capable of providing individuals with the tools needed to defeat their compulsion to abuse this substance. Providing continued clinical treatment and support, the staff members at our addiction rehab center will go above and beyond to ensure that those looking to obtain recovery from Adderall use disorder can do so.

Why Consider Treatment

Why consider treatment for Adderall addiction at Huntington Creek Recovery Center in the Northeast

While the short-term effects of using Adderall can seem attractive to most, the long-term repercussions can dramatically outweigh any of that attraction. Adderall serves as a fast fix for weight loss, reducing fatigue, and fighting distractions so that responsibilities can be upheld. However, those results are often short-lived. The longer that individuals continue to abuse Adderall, the more dependent their bodies grow on this substance, bringing on the need for increasingly larger doses to be consumed. The more individuals consume of this substance, the greater the risk becomes for overdosing. And even if these individuals are lucky enough to avoid an overdose, the permanent damage they are doing to their bodies can be extreme. Chronic Adderall abuse can lead to physical ailments including stroke, hypertension, circulatory system damage, blood clots, and heart failure. Psychologically, prolonged Adderall abuse can cause severe confusion, the development of hallucinations and delusions, and even psychosis. Each of these factors can be prevented when comprehensive rehab is obtained and implemented.

Each patient who receives care at Huntington Creek Recovery Center benefits from the creation of an individualized treatment plan that is crafted specifically to meet his or her needs, concerns, and treatment goals. The following may be Included in these individualized treatment plans when individuals are working to overcome an addiction to Adderall:

Detoxification services: When individuals come to Huntington Creek Recovery Center with substances of abuse actively in their systems, such as Adderall, they will typically need to begin the treatment process by first participating in detoxification services. Also known as detox, this process allows individuals to have drugs or alcohol effectively removed from their bodies while remaining as comfortable as possible. The detox staff at our rehab center consists of a medical director, a physician’s assistant, registered nurses, and licensed practical nurses, who all work to ensure the safety of each patient. While receiving care in the detox unit, patients will also be afforded full access to the clinical treatment program.

Medication management: Individuals who are suffering from symptoms of a co-occurring mental health disorder in addition to their battle with Adderall addiction may require certain medications in order to alleviate their distressing symptoms. During their first week in programming, patients will receive an assessment from a psychologist which will determine whether or not they are in need of medication or would benefit from further sessions with the psychologist. If medications are prescribed, the medical director and nurses will provide medication management services.

Individual therapy: Individual therapy sessions occur in a one-to-one forum where a patient meets confidentially with his or her primary counselor. When struggling with an addiction to Adderall, individual therapy sessions can be an ideal place for patients to process through what they are learning in treatment, as well as to discuss any concerns they have or any trials they are facing. These sessions are held at least two or three times per week.

Group therapy: Group therapy is another extremely beneficial medium for individuals who are working on recovering from an addiction to Adderall. In this setting, patients can benefit from being surrounded by peers who are facing challenges that are similar to their own. This can serve to provide a sense of comfort as men and women come to realize that they are not alone in their struggles, and therefore do not have to feel isolated. It can also be an optimal setting for individuals to give and receive support and encouragement to and from one another. Group therapy sessions are held daily and can include the following:

  • Open therapy groups
  • Coping skills group
  • Anxiety group
  • Gender-specific groups
  • Trauma group
  • Psychoeducational groups
  • 12-Step topic groups

All of the group topics are patient-driven, meaning that the topics discussed will be catered the individuals who are participating in the group. As such, additional, substance-specific groups can be held, such as opioid-specific groups, alcohol-specific groups, etc.

Family therapy: Family therapy sessions are conducted by either a patient’s primary counselor or a family therapist and are held on an as-needed basis depending on each person’s individualized treatment plan. Pending the patient’s consent, his or her family members can be updated on his or her treatment progress each week. Additionally, family members are highly encouraged to be involved in rehab during weekly family visits. During visitation time, family members will also have the opportunity to participate in an educational lecture, though it is not required.

Experiential therapy: In order to offer patients the opportunity to receive a holistic approach to care, Huntington Creek Recovery Center implements a number of experiential therapies into the overall course of programming when individuals are working to overcome an addiction to Adderall or other substances.
