Dexedrine & Ritalin Detoxification and Rehabilitation Centers in West Virginia

Dexedrine is a brand name for dextroamphetamine, and is a prescribed stimulant, and is one of many different brands that is abused recreationally throughout the United States. Despite Dexedrine not being a commonly prescribed stimulant, it is still often abused recreationally by very young age groups. One of the more common groups that abuse these drugs is students because there is a common misconception that Dexedrine will enhance academic performance. The longer that someone is taking these types of drugs, the more of an increased tolerance they will develop. This tolerance for amphetamines will lead to dependency, which will develop into an addiction. The different drug and alcohol rehabilitation centers and programs throughout the state of West Virginia can help addicts and their families struggling with these problems. Both inpatient and outpatient treatment options operate throughout the state, and this will include the necessary detox to ensure addicts, and their families can overcome the addiction. Prescription drug abuse and addiction are a major problem all throughout the United States, with prescription opioids being one of the number-one causes for addictions and overdose deaths. Other types of prescription drugs such as Ritalin and Adderall are commonly abused because they provide similar effects to cocaine and amphetamine. Addicts who abuse these types of drugs are often doing so with other drugs, and this is all contributing to a larger addiction problem. Drug treatment centers within the state of West Virginia include both short-term and long-term options within residential and outpatient centers. Anyone battling an addiction to prescription stimulants can find the proper help within the state for their addiction. Conventional detox should be the first step before any formal therapy or counseling takes place. Withdrawal symptoms caused by Ritalin are not always severe but can be managed through detox.
