Prescription drug addiction is an on-going problem all throughout the United States, and most addicts have experimented with or abused some type of legal or illegal pharmaceutical. Illegal pharmaceuticals such as pain medications are commonly abused throughout the United States. However, drugs such as Dexedrine, which are central nervous system stimulants are also regularly misused by addicts and non-addicts alike. Dexedrine will often be misused as a tablet, snorted, and can even be injected when a large amount of the drug is taken there is a risk of overdose. Dexedrine abuse can lead to serious problems with addictions, and the drugs are often abused by younger individuals. Because Dexedrine is prescribed to treat ADHD, it will be often sold by younger teens who are prescribed the drug. Drug and alcohol rehabilitation centers and programs within the state of Alaska will help addicts who are addicted to Dexedrine or help someone who is prescribed the drug and is battling dependency on the drug. Ritalin is a brand name for methylphenidate, which is a central nervous system stimulant and is listed as a Schedule II drug under the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act. This means that the drug does have a high potential for abuse, and can become addictive. The popularity of Ritalin didn't really happen until the 1990s, despite it being around for thirty years prior. With the increasing rise in prescription during the 1990s, more people were becoming addicted to or abusing Ritalin who were prescribed it. To date, the United States accounts for 80% of the global consumption of central nervous system stimulants such as methylphenidate. A problem with Ritalin can start with a prescription, but the drug can also be gotten illegally. Within the state of Alaska are different types of treatment programs, such as inpatient and outpatient drug rehab and detox centers who will help prescription drug addicts.
