Adderall is a commonly prescribed drug that is used to help people with ADHD, unfortunately, the drug is often abused and sometimes requires an Adderall rehab to deal with this problem.

Adderall is a medication that doctors prescribe for people suffering from attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). This medication works by providing the person with more clarity and focused thinking. It also increases mental alertness. However, even though it increases alertness, it doesn’t make the person with ADHD hyperactive. If the medication is abused or used by a person who doesn’t have a prescription, then it will cause them to have increased energy and feelings of self-confidence. These feelings can even be euphoric for some and addictive.

If you are using this medication, you might wonder if you are addicted and need help. This question is a cause for concern when taking a medication that is addictive, like Adderall. It’s critical to understand the signs of Adderall addiction. Luckily, there are prescription drug rehabs like Renaissance Recovery’s California rehabs to help people who have been afflicted by the disease of addiction.

Signs of Adderall Addiction

Addiction to any drug almost always has both physical and psychological signs. Physical signs of addiction to Adderall include withdrawal symptoms after you abruptly stop taking the medication. These withdrawal signs could range from cravings to anxiety to sleepiness. You will notice that you generally feel uncomfortable and ill at ease when withdrawing from this medication.

Another sign of addiction to Adderall is having a psychological connection to the medication. This manifests itself in different ways in different people. Some people get into a routine doing the drug and feel upset emotionally if they try to stop. Others may feel an attachment to the feelings they get from the medication. These psychological connections are strong.

The last sign that you are likely addicted to Adderall is if you are abusing it. How can you abuse Adderall? Three ways that could qualify as abuse include:

  • Overusing the prescription you legally obtained (taking too many pills or taking them more frequently than you’re supposed to)
  • Using someone else’s medication or getting it another way (you don’t have a prescription)
  • Using Adderall to get “high” even though you don’t technically need it

Finding Adderall Treatment

If you notice any of the signs of Adderall addiction or abuse, then Adderall rehab is your best option for help. At an Adderall rehab, you will safely go through the detox process with certified therapists and professional doctors monitoring your progress. Not only will you have medical staff overseeing your progress, but you will also participate in a comprehensive therapy program to root out any issues that could be lurking beneath the surface. For example, some people may require added therapy for unresolved problems from their past. Others may discover that they have addictive tendencies, which means they’ll need to be on guard for future addiction problems too.
