Dexedrine & Ritalin Detoxification and Rehabilitation Centers in New Mexico

Dexedrine is a brand-name for dextroamphetamine, which is a central nervous system stimulant and is often prescribed to treat ADHD. These types of stimulant drugs are also commonly abused by younger people, especially students because there is a misconception that the drug will enhance academic performance. Unfortunately, the recreational use of Dexedrine will only lead to physical and psychological dependencies that can cause an addiction. When stimulant medications are abused along with alcohol or other drugs, it can increase the risk of overdose and other major health problems. Dexedrine and other drugs like it are commonly prescribed within the United States, and it is important that anyone taking these drugs as a prescription should only use them as directed by the healthcare professionals. Drug and alcohol rehabilitation centers within the state of New Mexico will help addicts and their families. Throughout the state are different inpatient and outpatient treatment programs and facilities along with detox centers. Ritalin is a brand name for methylphenidate and is a central nervous system stimulant. The drug is classified as a Schedule II narcotic and is in the same classification as morphine, amphetamines, and cocaine for its addictive and abuse potential. Ritalin is the most commonly prescribed ADHD medication within the United States and is also a common recreation drug. Ritalin is used illegally because it has similar effects as cocaine and amphetamines. Addicts who abuse Ritalin will tend to crush it and snort it, inhale, or inject the drug. These methods of use will speed up the time it takes to feel the effects, and cause the effects to last longer. The risk of dependency through a prescription is real, especially if the user is not following the prescribing doctor's instructions with how to take the medication. Drug rehabilitation centers within the state of New Mexico will offer treatment services for prescription drug addiction. The programs will either operate out of an inpatient or outpatient center, with conventional detox being made available.
