Dexedrine & Ritalin Detoxification and Rehabilitation Centers in Minnesota

Dexedrine is a brand name extended-release formula for dextroamphetamine, which is a central nervous system stimulant. Dexedrine is commonly prescribed to treat problems such as ADHD and narcolepsy and is also used to help people with alertness and staying awake. In fact, these are some of the reasons why Dexedrine is used recreationally without a prescription and is also abused by addicts because it has similar effects as cocaine. The recreational misuse of amphetamines such as Dexedrine is a common problem throughout the United States and contributes to a part of the overall prescription drug epidemic. Drug and alcohol rehabilitation services and treatment programs within the state of Minnesota can help addicts who may be addicted to prescription drugs such as Dexedrine. The treatment process will typically begin with a detox program, where the patient will go through his or her withdrawals. After detox, the patient will then attend either an outpatient or inpatient drug treatment center. Dependency or addiction for Ritalin can be minimized if a prescription is taken as directed. Because Ritalin is the most commonly prescribed ADHD medication within the United States, it is being prescribed daily to people. Any prescription when taken as directed by the healthcare professional should typically not be dangerous, yet the risks and possibilities are still there. Ritalin is a brand name for methylphenidate, which is a central nervous system stimulant. It is listed as a Schedule II drug, which means it does have the potential to become addictive and cause addictions. Ritalin addiction and dependency can be effectively treated at most of the inpatient or outpatient drug treatment centers within the state of Minnesota. Conventional detox services will provide the best option because withdrawal pains from Ritalin are not necessarily severe or dangerous. Locating the right help is important, and within the state are many viable options to help addicts and their families.

It is quite possible due to the volatile nature of this drug to experience disturbing mental withdrawals, along with many physical symptoms. A supervised detox program is certainly beneficial and working with a general practitioner will ensure the process is done safely.
