Dexedrine & Ritalin Detoxification and Rehabilitation Centers in Kentucky

It is estimated that roughly over 5 million Americans used prescription central nervous system stimulants such as Dexedrine in 2018 alone. The recreational abuse of drugs such as Dexedrine has always been an ongoing problem within the United States. Drug and alcohol treatment programs and detox centers regularly treat patients who are addicted to Dexedrine and other similar drugs. It is very common for addicts to mix Dexedrine with other drugs or alcohol to intensify the effects. Dexedrine is commonly prescribed to treat ADHD and narcolepsy, and should only be taken as directed by healthcare professionals. The prolonged use of Dexedrine will lead to dependency problems, that may cause an addiction. Within the state of Kentucky are many different outpatient and inpatient treatment centers and programs, along with detox facilities to help addicts and their families. Regardless of the type of addiction, it is important to find the proper program and receive the correct help. The recreational use of Ritalin is often done with other drugs to intensify the effects, and Ritalin can be snorted, inhaled, or even injected when it is abused. Ritalin is a brand name for methylphenidate and is commonly prescribed within the United States to treat ADHD and ADD. In fact, the United States consumes roughly 80% of the world's methylphenidate. Addiction to Ritalin can happen with a prescription, and this can be because of excessive use or prolonged use with the drug. Ritalin addiction can become problematic, and the people who abuse the drug are often doing so with other substances. Drug treatment and rehabilitation centers within the state of Kentucky will offer help for anyone struggling with a prescription-drug problem. This will include residential and outpatient treatment, and the necessary conventional detox to assist with withdrawal symptoms.
