Dexedrine & Ritalin Detoxification and Rehabilitation Centers in Alabama

Dexedrine is a brand-name drug and is a central nervous system stimulant that is often prescribed to treat attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, narcolepsy, and is also prescribed as a cognitive enhancer and is, of course, abused recreationally. The generic name for Dexedrine is dextroamphetamine, and it is abused recreationally because it creates a euphoric effect and is in addition used as an aphrodisiac. Dexedrine abuse can lead to the abuse of other central nervous systems stimulants such as cocaine. Addicts who abuse these types of drugs will often tend to abuse prescription drugs such as Dexedrine to achieve the same types of effects. Prescription drug abuse is a problem all throughout the United States, and different drug treatment programs and services within the state of Alabama will help addicts who are addicted to these types of drugs. The drug treatment process with Dexedrine and other similar drugs can be very straight forward, but it is important to locate the right type of help. Ritalin is the most commonly known brand-name for methylphenidate, and is also a central nervous system stimulant, and often prescribed to treat narcolepsy and attention deficit disorders. Despite the drug being around since the 1960s', it became increasingly prescribed within the 1990s and is still a heavily prescribed drug. These types of central nervous system stimulants can be generally viewed as being safe when taken as prescribed and under the supervision of a prescribing doctor. However, Ritalin will provide much of the same effect as cocaine, particularly when it is abused. Ritalin is widely abused, especially among younger people. Ritalin can be gotten through a prescription, or it can be bought illegally. The recreational use of Ritalin can be dangerous, especially when excessive amounts are used. Prescription drug addiction within the state of Alabama can be properly treated at one of the different outpatient or inpatient treatment centers available. Also within the state are various detox programs and medical detox services to help addicts.
