Dexedrine is a brand name for dextroamphetamine and is a prescription stimulant that is in the category of drugs that are prescribed to treat ADHD, attention problems, and narcolepsy. The average person can take these drugs as prescribed and will not have any problems or issues. However, it is when the user misuses or takes more of the medication when they begin to develop a tolerance. Even with the prolonged use of Dexedrine, the user will still develop a tolerance for the drug, which can make it difficult to stop taking it. With the proper treatment and rehabilitation, such as the different inpatient and outpatient drug rehabilitation programs within the state of South Dakota, addicts and their families can get the help they need. Treatment options within the state include inpatient drug rehab, outpatient facilities, and the necessary detox programs. Locating a suitable program can be tedious, but it is important to get the treatment that will meet the requirements of the addict and their family. Prescription Ritalin can be linked to addiction because the drug is a central nervous system stimulant, and is the brand name for methylphenidate. Methylphenidate is a Schedule II drug, under the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act and does have a high risk for addiction and abuse. Ritalin is abused and can be crushed and snorted, inhaled, and injected, and this will intensify the effects, and speed up the process with the effects of the drugs. Ritalin is often recreationally used by students because of the misconceptions that the drug will help improve studying and mental awareness. Unfortunately, recreational use or Ritalin does have the potential to lead to the abuse of other types of stimulants. South Dakota drug treatment centers and conventional detox programs will offer effective treatment options for prescription stimulant addictions. Throughout the state of South Dakota are various types of treatment, which operate out of inpatient and outpatient facilities and will help with prescription drug addiction.
