Dexedrine & Ritalin Detoxification and Rehabilitation Centers in Missouri

Commonly prescribed stimulants or central nervous system stimulants include Adderall, Ritalin, and Dexedrine. Adderall and Dexedrine are brand names for dextroamphetamine, which is an amphetamine stimulant and can be very addictive when it is misused. Dexedrine and other drugs like it are often abused recreationally because of the alertness they create and the same type of effects as cocaine. In fact, amphetamines are commonly abused by addicts and used along with other drugs to intensify the effects. The recreational use of Dexedrine is often done by younger adults, especially those who are in school. To effectively treat any type of prescription drug problem, the user should attend some type of detox, whether it is a medical detox or a conventional detox program. Detox will ensure the withdrawal symptoms are properly managed, and patients have an opportunity to make a smooth transition into treatment. Drug and alcohol rehabilitation centers within the state of Missouri include both inpatient and outpatient treatment programs and detox centers. Ritalin is a central nervous system stimulant and is a brand name for methylphenidate, which is a Schedule II drug, under the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act. Ritalin is typically always prescribed to treat ADHD and ADD, and also narcolepsy. Ritalin becomes a popular drug for recreational abuse because it produces effects similar to cocaine and amphetamine. The long-term use of Ritalin will lead to serious physical and mental health problems. Whenever Ritalin is prescribed, it should only be taken as directed by the healthcare professionals. Ritalin addiction can also be part of a larger problem with other drugs, and Ritalin is a commonly abused drug with addicts. Ritalin abuse and addiction can be properly treated like any other type of stimulant addiction. Within the state of Missouri are various types of programs and treatment centers, which operate out of inpatient and outpatient facilities. Conventional detox centers will ensure addicts can manage the withdrawals properly.
