Dexedrine & Ritalin Detoxification and Rehabilitation Centers in Nevada

Dexedrine is a central nervous system stimulant that is often prescribed for the medical treatment of ADHD and narcolepsy. This drug and other amphetamines like it are often abused or used recreationally. Within certain populations, especially among students, the drug is used recreationally and abused because there is a misconception that it will help with studying and academic achievement. However, this is usually when addiction takes hold, because the user will become dependent on it, and their brain will not be capable of functioning without it. Even with the medical use of these types of drugs, there is still a risk of becoming dependent on them or addicted to them. Rehabilitation and therapy services operate throughout the state of Nevada, and many programs can help addicts who are addicted to prescription drugs. Various outpatient and inpatient treatment centers operate within the state of Nevada, and addicts can also locate a suitable detox program. Ritalin is a prescription stimulant drug and is a brand name for methylphenidate, which is a central nervous system stimulant, and a Schedule II drug under the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act. Ritalin is the most commonly prescribed stimulant within the United States to treat ADHD. In fact, the U.S. consumes roughly 80% of the world's methylphenidate. Prescription drug addiction has always been an on-going problem throughout the United States, with prescription opioids leading the way. Ritalin is used illegally and recreationally because it produces similar effects as cocaine and amphetamines, which will become habit-forming the longer that someone remains on the drug. Ritalin addiction can be treated with the right help, and it is important to first locate a conventional detox program within the state of Nevada. Withdrawal symptoms can be properly managed, and the discomfort can be alleviated. After detox, throughout the state are various inpatient and outpatient treatment centers and services to help addicts.
