Dexedrine & Ritalin Detoxification and Rehabilitation Centers in Utah

Prescription drug problems and addiction is an on-going issue all throughout the United States. One of the larger problems within the United States is prescribed opioids, which are causing countless overdose deaths and addictions each year. However, this has not stopped other prescriptions such as prescribed stimulants from being abused. Dexedrine is a prescription stimulant that is often prescribed to treat ADHD and narcolepsy. The recreational use of these drugs happens quite often; for example, there is a common misconception that these drugs will help students and enhance their academic performance. This type of thinking will lead to addiction because these drugs can cause dependencies. Drug and alcohol rehabilitation centers within the state of Utah all operate out of different settings such as inpatient and outpatient treatment centers and detox programs. For any type of prescription drug problem, it is important to find the right type of detox and help. These types of addictions do not have to be life-long problems and can be treated effectively. The regular use and misuse of prescription stimulants such as Ritalin can lead to health problems such as high blood pressure, sleep deprivation, paranoia, irregular heartbeat and seizures. Ritalin abuse does have the risk of leading to the abuse of other stimulants such as cocaine or amphetamines. Ritalin is a brand name for methylphenidate, which is a central nervous system stimulant. Ritalin is also the most commonly prescribed ADHD medication in the United States. The recreational use of stimulants such as Ritalin is popular among students, who may abuse it to help them study. These types of problems are happening all throughout the United States, and part of the overall prescription drug epidemic. The detox process for Ritalin can either be very difficult to go through or can be easy. Depending on the amount of the drug that is being taken, the withdrawal period can last a few days to upwards of a week. Drug treatment centers throughout the state of Utah include both inpatient and outpatient treatment and the necessary detox for prescription drug addiction.
