Dexedrine & Ritalin Detoxification and Rehabilitation Centers in Kansas

There is a difference between someone who uses Dexedrine with a prescription and someone who is abusing it. It is the patterns of repeated abuse and the disregard for negative consequences that define an addict. However, it is still very easy to become addicted to Dexedrine from a prescription. Dexedrine is a central nervous system stimulant and is a brand name for a drug that is prescribed to treat ADHD and narcolepsy. Anyone who may be prescribed Dexedrine must always take the drug as directed by healthcare professionals. The long-term use of the drug will cause a dependency, which can lead to an addiction. Any type of prescription drug addiction can be properly treated, and within the state of Kansas are different outpatient and inpatient treatment centers to help addicts through these problems. Various methods of rehabilitation are provided throughout the state, and it is important to locate the best possible option to treat a prescription drug problem. The abuse of Ritalin will cause significant side effects such as confusion, agitation, anxiety, insomnia, paranoia, and a loss of appetite, nausea, and even respiratory depression. Ritalin is the brand name for methylphenidate, which is a central nervous system stimulant. Ritalin is the most commonly prescribed ADHD medication in the United States. When Ritalin is used it will produce similar effects as amphetamines, and when the drug is abused these effects will be intensified and also very similar to cocaine. Ritalin abuse within the United States is very common among teens and younger adults, because children, teens, and young adults are prescribed this drug if they are diagnosed with ADHD or ADD. The long-term use of Ritalin will lead to various physical and psychological problems. Drug treatment centers within the state of Kansas can help addicts and their families through any type of prescription-drug addiction. Inpatient and outpatient treatment is available within the state along with conventional detox services.
