    Get started on the road to recovery.


    Treatment Centers for Stimulant Addiction

    There are many inpatient treatment centers across the country that offer the tools necessary to beat addiction. These centers can help those hooked on dangerous, illicit stimulants like meth or cocaine as well as those addicted to prescription stimulants such as Ritalin or Adderall. Some of the best treatment centers for stimulants include:

    Detox from Stimulants

    The first step of treating an addiction to stimulants is detox. During detox, doctors manage the physical part of the addiction by getting the stimulants out of the person’s system. Detox typically lasts up to a week, but could last longer depending on the severity of the addiction.

    Those who abused stimulants more frequently, in larger doses and over a longer period of time take longer to detox.

    The type of stimulant used affects how long it takes to detox. People addicted to cocaine tend to have a short detox time compared to those addicted to prescription stimulants such as Adderall. Prescription stimulants are designed to last longer and build up in the body over time, so it takes longer for the body to rid itself of them. The withdrawal period for prescription stimulants is also usually longer. Common withdrawal symptoms experienced by people addicted to stimulants include:

    • Mood swings
    • Depression
    • Disturbed sleep
    • Headaches
    • Fatigue
    • Intense cravings

    To date, there haven’t been any pharmaceutical drugs formulated for treating stimulant addiction. However, some studies show potential for certain drugs that may reduce cravings and lead to a successful recovery. Two such drugs that may help are Prozac and Naltrexone.

    • Prozac

      Prescribed for mood disorders like depression and obsessive compulsive disorder, Prozac has shown some limited potential in reducing cravings.

    • Naltrexone

      Naltrexone is commonly used for the treatment of opioid and alcohol dependencies, but has also showed potential in treating prescription stimulant dependence.

    Inpatient Rehabilitation for Stimulant Abuse

    Inpatient rehab centers typically provide the highest chances of successfully overcoming a stimulant addiction. Rehab programs offer detox, therapy and support groups over a period of anywhere from 30 days to six months. Find a treatment center that’s right for you.

    Ongoing Treatment for Stimulant Addiction

    Whereas detox deals with the physical part of the addiction, ongoing therapy is used to tackle the psychological part of stimulant addiction. Even though withdrawal symptoms and the physical need for stimulants are gone, the compulsive desire to use stimulants is still there. This makes ongoing treatment a must for those in recovery.

    A therapist can help identify what situations trigger the impulse to take stimulants and how to effectively manage these impulses.

    Support groups also provide help dealing with the psychological side of addiction. These groups typically center on a 12-step program and provide the comfort of knowing that other people are going through the same thing.
