Adderall is one of the prescription stimulants most often used to treat attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). It adjusts the proportions of certain neurotransmitters in the brain to promote improved focus and moods. When used as prescribed and by people with a proper diagnosis, the medication can be very helpful. However, many people abuse Adderall, which quickly leads to tolerance of the drug and them seeking Adderal addiction help. 

When a person builds tolerance, they must use more of the drug to achieve the desired effect. With Adderall being severely habit-forming, many find themselves in the throes of a full-blown addiction or substance abuse. Transcend Recovery Community works directly with individuals seeking Adderall addiction treatment.

What Is Adderall Addiction?

Adderall is a schedule ii controlled substance used to treat narcolepsy and a mental illness, such as ADHD. If done under proper drug administration and medical supervision, it calms the brain, allowing for improved concentration or focus. However, many people easily gain access to this prescription medication (such as in the form of Adderall XR) and develop Adderall dependency due to extended use.

Young adults, such as athletes, professionals, and college students or high school seniors (as a study drug), are prone to Adderall dependence as a means for boosting academic performance and mental performance for a prolonged period. An individual abuses Adderall in different scenarios, such as mixing Adderall with other substances and other prescription stimulants to further extend its stimulant effects, or snorting Adderall solely to stimulate the brain's reward center, where they get that "high," as most people would describe it.

If this continues to worsen due to long-term use, it may bring health risks, such as long-term high blood pressure, mood swings, weight loss, cardiovascular system abnormalities leading to heart attack, schizophrenia-like symptoms, and even a potentially lethal overdose.

Adderall addiction may also bring other mental disorders which may hamper the growth and recovery of individuals suffering from this drug abuse. They may develop a tendency to abuse alcohol and other drugs which can, later on, develop as a co-occurring disorder, if left untreated.

Mental health patients suffering from severe side effects of Adderall need immediate advice diagnosis or treatment to determine the proper therapy program for their unique case. They must undergo national institute-approved diagnostic and statistical manual examination to better understand how Adderall has drastically affected their body and well-being.

Treatment facilities would often provide medical advice and incorporate various therapies, that may involve residential treatment or outpatient rehab, depending on the severity of their case. The end goal is to address Adderall withdrawal symptoms in the early stages of treatment, cease physical dependence on the drug, treat symptoms, and change bad habits associated with combining Adderall in their daily living.

Does Transcend Provide Adderall Abuse Treatment?

Transcend believes in supporting addiction recovery efforts; to this end, we work with our sister program, The Heights Treatment, to deliver top-tier recovery assistance to our clients.

As part of our program, clients have access to a certified Adderall addiction therapist. The therapist, who has trained under addiction expert Dr. Patrick Carnes, sees our clients and provides them with the tools for their rehabilitation needs. They also identify warning signs from the get-go induced by Adderall effects on drug-dependent users. This helps them recognize what needs to be done on how to better treat the patients, most especially when they have other pre-existing mental health disorders that may lead to serious bodily damage, such as alcohol poisoning, and even death.

Adderall increased the mortality rate of individuals suffering from their addiction, either through life-threatening overdose or adverse side effects from sustained abuse of this drug. That's why it is important to bolster recovery efforts for our clients by providing them support in key areas such as life skills, self-care, spirituality, and a sense of community.

We ensure that every expectation of their daily living is covered, from their "personal hygiene" habits to their weight loss issues due to the effects of Adderall. As the youth, particularly college students are more prone to abusing Adderall, we have specialized in creating young adult treatment programs that zero in on their needs and assuring them that they are not alone in their road to an Adderall-free life.

As addiction is often referred to as a family disease, Transcend also emphasizes the needs of both the addict as well as the family unit. We believe family understanding and support are extremely beneficial to those recovering from addiction. Our goal is to provide support and foster healing to both the addict and their loved ones throughout the treatment process.

What Are the Symptoms of Adderall Addiction and How Is It Diagnosed?

Taking Adderall boosts the levels of dopamine and norepinephrine in the central nervous system. This change in chemistry incites a rewarding feeling and alters the speed at which people respond to events. Adderall abuse among people often equates to individuals feeling more focused, alert, and perhaps euphoric. Addicts tend to crave these effects, which leads them to seek more of the drug. Some symptoms of addiction include but are not limited to:

Being unable to intentionally stop using the drug

Being unable to get through tasks that require concentration without Adderall

Experiencing withdrawal signs whenever the drug isn’t accessible

Spending both time and money on the use of and recovery from the drug

Overusing the drug, despite knowledge of the harm that it’s causing

Prioritizing the drug over other critical areas of life

Affecting relationships, both professional and personal, negatively

If you notice your loved one manifesting these common signs related to Adderall abuse, it's best to consult a mental healthcare provider or an Adderall treatment specialist to plan the best course of action for an individual abusing Adderall and other drugs.

Transcend has an active hotline dedicated to people who abuse Adderall, alongside various treatment programs and methods to help them get better. We also provide emotional support to people affected by loved ones who abuse Adderall, educating them on how to better respond to their loved ones undergoing drug abuse treatment.

Is It Hard to Get Off Adderall? Are There Withdrawal Symptoms?

It is vital to understand that there is an average level of dependence to be expected when taking Adderall. Being on the drug for prolonged periods alters the brain’s chemistry, leading to dependence. Levels of dependence vary between people based on factors such as length of time using the drug, method of use (i.e. orally, snorting, injecting), and dose amount.

Those addicted to Adderall frequently find it impossible to quit on their own due to withdrawal symptoms. Fear of withdrawal often results in people continuing to abuse the drug. While quitting and recovering from Adderall abuse is not easy, it is also not impossible.

Transcend understands the challenging nature of recovery, and continuously provides tremendous support to clients during the process. Our partner company's treatment offerings and techniques provide clients with a sense of empowerment and the mental fortitude needed to conquer their addiction.

Dependence on Adderall is no joke as it has contributed to fatalities caused by their drug dependence or adverse side effects. Many families have been hugely impacted by their loved ones who have deteriorated and succumbed due to their addiction, putting a burden on the family as well as resulting in estranged relationships. For that reason, treatment is of the essence. Constant monitoring and management must be observed at all times to ensure that patients adhere to their treatment programs for relapse prevention and to encourage long-term sobriety in these individuals.

The road to leading a sober and chemical-free life is a huge challenge for most addiction sufferers. But as long as there's a strong support group and a sense of community to empower them as they work on their life goals, recovery and transformation will be underway.
