Concerta Addiction Treatment

African American Woman Meditating In NatureConcerta’s powerful psychostimulant properties make it a highly addictive drug. It can be very difficult for someone to stop using Concerta once they are psychologically dependent on it.

Those addicted to Concerta should not try to quit without professional help.

Addiction professionals assess the severity of a user’s Concerta addiction. After proper assessment, the addiction professional will determine the appropriate type of care for the individual, as well as create an individualized treatment plan. Treatment programs for Concerta addiction are usually provided in residential or outpatient settings, and the level of care depends on several factors, such as the amount of support at home, any underlying medical or mental health concerns, and the severity of the drug addiction.

Because Concerta is often abused as a “study drug,” part of their treatment plan may include learning new habits and behaviors for how to study without the use of stimulants.

Addiction treatment for Concerta may include therapies and medications. Behavioral therapies like motivational interviewing (MI) and cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) teach healthy coping mechanisms to manage potential triggers and help individuals uncover the root cause of why they are abusing drugs. MI is a non-confrontational approach that helps individuals find the internal motivation to change while learning to accept themselves for who they are. CBT works to turn negative thoughts into positive ones to improve self-esteem and modify behaviors.

Group and individual therapy (as well as homework between sessions) are typical aspects of substance abuse treatment programs. Relapse prevention and communication skills are taught during these sessions, and support groups are formed that help individuals build a network of peers with the common goal of remaining drug-free.

There may also be additional holistic forms of therapy, such as yoga, meditation, mindfulness techniques, chiropractic care, stress management techniques, acupuncture, massage therapy, nutritional meal planning, and fitness programs. All may help promote long-term recovery. Methods of reducing stress and anxiety, which may include the use of antidepressant or anti-anxiety medications, may also be helpful.

Inpatient Rehab for Concerta Addiction

Inpatient rehab is often very effective in treating all kinds of addiction, including Concerta. These residential treatment centers can provide a high level of care, making them the ideal treatment choice for those with a severe addiction. Rehab is supportive and structured, giving the patients a safe, medically supervised environment.

Residential treatment centers offer stays as short as 28 days or as long as several months, depending on the severity of the person’s addiction. Residents can also be treated for any co-occurring mental health disorders during their stay.

Concerta withdrawal is best managed by a prescribed tapering program. This involves the patient receiving gradually reduced doses of the drug over a period of weeks. Tapering off Concerta allows the body to slowly adapt to the reduction of the drug, thereby preventing the most severe withdrawal symptoms.

Counseling is an important component of treatment as it can help change the user’s response to certain triggers that motivate their Concerta use.

A very effective treatment for treating addiction behaviors is cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT). The psychological components of Concerta addiction are targeted in these one-on-one therapy sessions.

Inpatient rehabs offer different therapeutic approaches for Concerta users, including:

Ongoing Treatment and Relapse Prevention Strategies

For those with a mild addiction to Concerta, an outpatient treatment program that offers medically assisted detox may be an appropriate option. Outpatient programs may be a good choice for those who do not have the flexibility in their schedules to attend an inpatient program. Outpatient services may include family therapy, counseling, support groups, continuing education and relapse prevention methods.

Because addiction is a chronic disease, relapses happen.

A relapse doesn’t mean treatment has failed, it just means the treatment plan needs to be reinforced or adjusted.

Ongoing therapy, relapse prevention education and support groups can help stop relapses from happening.

The following tips can help former Concerta users prevent relapse:
  • Stay organized so triggers don’t catch you off-guard

    During treatment, Concerta users will identify the specific triggers—typically people, places or things—that contributed to their addiction. Because many people use Concerta to help them perform in an academic or professional setting, triggers might be big tests or starting a new project at work. In these cases, avoiding the trigger may be impossible. Instead, stay organized and proactive so you know when these stressors are coming—and have a plan for how to tackle them in a healthy way.

  • Manage your time and commitments

    Improving your time management skills and cutting back on commitments can help make your schedule less stressful. With less stress in your life and a more manageable schedule, you won’t feel the need to turn to Concerta to help you achieve your goals.

  • Grow your support system

    Support is a crucial element in addiction recovery, especially when built through 12-Step Programs such as Narcotics Anonymous. Surround yourself with like-minded individuals and loved ones who will have your back as you go through tough times and face temptations.

  • Avoid people that make you want to use

    They may be people who encouraged you to use Concerta during active addiction, like a dealer or a friend you partied with. Or they may be those who made you feel like you needed the drug to succeed—like a competitor, someone who pressures you to be the best, or those you’re trying to impress. Instead, surround yourself with a solid support system and people who share your enthusiasm for sobriety.

  • Make your health a priority

    Getting sufficient sleep, eating a healthy diet, exercising and learning how to manage stress can improve mental clarity and focus—two of the main reasons many people abuse Concerta in the first place. By simply providing your body with the rest and nutrition it needs, you’ll find you’re capable of reaching your goals without the drug.

“[My relapse] lasted two days. Then, I got totally involved with the complete program of recovery and have not stopped.”
