Dexedrine & Ritalin Detoxification and Rehabilitation Centers in Pennsylvania

The long-term use or abuse of prescription stimulants such as with Dexedrine will cause significant physical and mental health problems. Most of these types of amphetamines or stimulants are usually prescribed for as-needed treatment, and should not necessarily be taken every day for years and years. These types of drugs are narcotics, and despite patients seeing improvements while taking them, they will still develop a tolerance to the drug. The increased tolerance will require the user to take more in order to maintain that level of relief. Physical and psychological dependencies will also develop, and this can lead to dangerous types of addiction later in life. Addicts who abuse these drugs will tend to be using street drugs or abusing alcohol. The combination of prescription drugs with other substances will intensify the effects, but these can be dangerous combinations. Drug and alcohol treatment services and programs within the state of Pennsylvania include inpatient and outpatient treatment, detox centers, and various methods of counseling, therapy, and group support programs. The abuse of Ritalin or long-term use of the drug does have the potential to cause significant physical and mental health problems. Anyone who is abusing central nervous system stimulants for a long time will require a detox. Withdrawal symptoms can be difficult to go through and will require the help and support of trained and qualified professionals. Throughout the state of Pennsylvania, are different conventional detox facilities and services that will help addicts addicted to stimulants. Ritalin is the brand name for methylphenidate, which is a central nervous system stimulant and is frequently prescribed to treat ADHD and narcolepsy. Ritalin is the most commonly prescribed ADHD medication within the United States, and in fact; the country consumes over 80% of the world's methylphenidate. Pennsylvania inpatient and outpatient drug treatment services can help prescription stimulant addicts and their families. Finding the right help is important, and there are resources within the state.
