Medically Assisted
Adderall Detoxification

Adderall is a widely prescribed and extremely habit-forming prescription stimulant, one most commonly used for the treatment of attention deficit-hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). Adderall is the brand name for the drug amphetamine-dextroamphetamine, which works by boosting dopamine levels within the brain which in turn affects the ability to concentrate, pay attention and focus. When individuals take this medication exactly as prescribed by a medical professional it often proves to be extremely beneficial. Unfortunately, rates of Adderall abuse have been on a sharp incline over the course of the past several years – especially among teenagers and young adults.

John Hopkins University recently published an article claiming that Adderall abuse is the highest among those between the ages of 18 and 25. The study was conducted over a five year time period, from 2006 to 2011. During this time period researchers found that the rates of non-prescribed Adderall abuse rose 67 percent among young adults, and that emergency room visits increased by a staggering 156 percent. Many college-aged young adults view Adderall as a relatively harmless study aid, overlooking the fact that this specific prescription stimulant is extremely habit-forming and can easily result in physical and psychological dependence. If you have been abusing Adderall for any length of time, Pine Tree Recovery Center is available to help. Our comprehensive and highly individualized program of safe and pain-free Adderall detox tackles the physical, mental and emotional implications of active addiction, laying a solid foundation for long-term success in sobriety.

Adderall Abuse and Addiction – Signs & Symptoms

There are some symptoms associated with prescription drug addiction that remain consistent across the board. These include behavioral symptoms like “doctor shopping,” raiding the medicine cabinets of friends and family members and attempting to purchase the medication from individuals with a known prescription.

Other common symptoms unique to Adderall abuse and addiction include:

  • Excitability
  • Increased sociability and talkativeness/rambling conversation
  • A potentially dangerous sense of grandiosity
  • Dry mouth and persistent thirst
  • Extreme nervousness
  • Anxiety, paranoia and panic attacks
  • Increased anxiety when Adderall is not readily available
  • Being unable to focus or complete menial tasks when not on the medication
  • Crushing Adderall in order to feel the effects of the drug more quickly
  • Spending an ample amount of time obtaining, using and recovering from the effects of Adderall
  • Attempting to cut back or quit but being unable to do so
  • Continuing to use despite a wide range of personal consequences
  • Developing a physical tolerance
  • Experiencing withdrawal symptoms when use is stopped abruptly

Adderall Withdrawal – Signs & Symptoms

When it comes to Adderall withdrawal, the psychological symptoms are often far more severe than the physical symptoms – however, the physical symptoms can be rather uncomfortable if not treated as they arise. Physical symptoms include nausea and vomiting, severe stomach cramping, headache, increased appetite (which often leads to temporary weight gain) and extreme tiredness.

The psychological withdraw symptoms of Adderall addiction often require some degree of Medication Assisted Treatment, including:

  • Mood swings, typically marked by severe agitation and irritability
  • Insomnia and other sleep-related issues (which can be especially frustrating when coupled with extreme fatigue and exhaustion)
  • Severe depression which can lead to suicidal ideation when left untreated
  • Anxiety, paranoia and panic attacks

Our Detox Services

At Pine Tree Recovery Center we believe that the most effective detox programs are thoroughly integrated, meaning that they effectively tackle the emotional and mental implications of active addiction along with the physical consequences.

Detox and recovery services that we provide include:

  • An in-depth medical assessment upon admission – Each client is asked a series of questions regarding their personal and family history of substance abuse, any pre-existing mental health or medical conditions and any other factors that might affect which detoxification methods are utilized. Brief evaluations occur throughout the remainder of the recovery process, ultimately helping case managers develop personalized programs of aftercare.
  • Clinical and psychiatric evaluations – In many cases, individuals who suffer at the hands of a substance abuse or dependency disorder also have some degree of mental illness, whether that be depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder or something more severe. Psychiatric evaluations help our clinical team determine whether or not dual diagnosis treatment is necessary.
  • Case management services – Case managers walk clients through every stage of the early recovery process, offering additional support and answering any questions or alleviating any concerns that they might have. Case managers also serve as the main point of contact for family members. They keep the loved ones of each client up-to-date on personal progress and future plans for continuing care.
  • Intensive individual and group therapy sessions – If clients are feeling up to it, they have the opportunity to participate in group therapy sessions on a daily basis. They also have access to individual therapy sessions at least once per week. Our licensed therapists utilize a wide range of proven therapeutic techniques, including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing and Experiential Therapy (like psychodrama and art therapy).
  • Family therapy and additional family-oriented services and resources – It is essential that the family heals independently but simultaneously. Active addiction severely damages healthy family functioning, and in order for the client to heal the entire family unit must heal comprehensively. We offer numerous additional resources for the family members of our clients, including support groups and addiction education programs.
  • Medication Assisted Treatment and medication management – While the physical symptoms associated with Adderall withdrawal are not typically dangerous, the psychological symptoms – including intense drug cravings – can be severe when not adequately treated with a range of safe and effective medications.
  • Home-style retreat amenities geared towards client comfort – A safe and pain-free withdrawal process is our top priority, closely followed by an unmatched level of comfort – one that cannot be found in any state-run detox facility.
  • Recovery-related group sessions – At Pine Tree Recovery Center, we believe in providing our clients with all of the tools they need in order to maintain success in their sobriety for years to come. Some of the recovery-oriented group sessions we offer include the development of healthy coping mechanisms, relapse prevention training and how to effectively communicate feelings and emotions.
  • Personalized and thorough aftercare planning – Aftercare is essential to long-term sobriety, and includes admission to an inpatient drug and alcohol rehab, intensive outpatient programming and sober living housing.
