Dexedrine & Ritalin Detoxification and Rehabilitation Centers in Mississippi

Dexedrine is a brand name for dextroamphetamine, and Dexedrine is the extended-release version of the drug. Dexedrine is classified as a Schedule II narcotic under the Controlled Drug and Substances Act, which means it has a high potential for becoming addictive and creating dependencies. Dexedrine is a central nervous system stimulant or amphetamine, and these types of drugs are popular among younger people and are abused for the euphoric effects, very similar to cocaine. One of the many reasons why Dexedrine is abused recreationally is because of the alertness it creates, and this makes it popular for students. The treatment process or rehabilitation for an amphetamine addiction should involve detox and also either outpatient or inpatient drug rehabilitation. Drug and alcohol treatment programs throughout the state of Mississippi offer resources to help treat prescription-drug addiction. Anyone struggling with a problem should seek out help right away at one of the programs or services within the state. The longer a person continues to abuse Ritalin or even take Ritalin as prescribed, they will develop a tolerance to the drug. Like any other type of central nervous system stimulant, the user will develop a tolerance. Tolerance for any drug can cause physical and psychological dependencies, which can turn into an addiction. Ritalin is a brand name for methylphenidate and is a central nervous system stimulant. Ritalin is also the most commonly prescribed ADHD medication within the United States, and the country consumes roughly 80% of the world's methylphenidate. When prescribed for legitimate purposes, and taken as directed, Ritalin can be used as needed. Drug treatment centers within the state of Mississippi operate out of inpatient and outpatient facilities, and conventional detox can assist with the withdrawal pains. Ritalin withdrawals are not overly severe and can be managed effectively prior to any type of residential or outpatient drug rehab.
