Dexedrine & Ritalin Detoxification and Rehabilitation Centers in Nebraska

Many of the reasons why drugs such as Dexedrine may be abused include increasing academic achievement, boosting athletic ability, losing weight, fighting off fatigue, and just simply getting high. Dexedrine is a brand-name amphetamine know as dextroamphetamine and is a central nervous system stimulant. Dexedrine is often prescribed to treat problems such as ADHD and narcolepsy, and when used strictly for medical reasons, there is normally no problem. However, it is when Dexedrine is abused or even taken longer than required that an issue may arise. The long-term use of Dexedrine will cause a tolerance to develop, which will lead to a physical or psychological dependency. Drug treatment centers and detox programs within the state of Nebraska will help addicts who are addicted to various types of prescription drugs. The rehabilitation process will not always be easy, but anyone struggling with an addiction problem in Nebraska should seek out help immediately. The withdrawals from excessive Ritalin use will be different for each addict; some can be more severe than others, and the withdrawals are not normally life-threatening. Some addicts cannot handle withdrawals as well as others and will tend to use the minute the withdrawal symptoms become too much. Ritalin withdrawal symptoms include fatigue, nightmares, insomnia, weight gain, muscle twitching, and of course cravings. Ritalin is a brand name for methylphenidate, which is a central nervous system stimulant. Ritalin is the most commonly prescribed ADHD medication within the United States and is also a common recreational drug. Ritalin is abused because it produces effects similar to cocaine and amphetamine, which can become habit-forming. Like any other type of addiction, the proper treatment must be gotten. Within the state of Nebraska are various types of programs and facilities that will help treat prescription-drug addiction. Addicts and their families can access outpatient and inpatient centers, along with conventional detox to help with the addiction.
