When abused, Adderall can wreak havoc on your body. Doctors commonly prescribe Adderall to treat attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and narcolepsy. At Crossroads, we offer gender-specific addiction treatment. We recognize that many women struggling with addiction also bear the burden of caring for their families and working full-time when they seek treatment. We strive to support all women and their unique needs as they go through our Adderall addiction treatment center. Sobriety is the goal, along with living a healthier and more manageable life. Crossroads takes a holistic approach to the treatment and recovery of each person. We believe in treating not just the addiction but the symptoms that come along with it. Contact our treatment team today to learn more about the different types of treatment programs available for women and their unique needs.
Adderall and Women
At Crossroads, we offer women’s Adderall addiction treatment in a comfortable, home-like setting where we are dedicated to helping women recover and live a life free of addiction. Adderall abuse may have serious side effects, particularly in women, including eating disorders and stress on the heart. Many women take Adderall as an appetite suppressant, so the path to a dangerous eating disorder is quite common. Eating disorders can create a domino effect causing added stress on the heart, lungs, and digestive system. The substance use treatment programs at Crossroads offer dual diagnosis treatment to treat both addiction and an eating disorder at the same time.
Outside of its prescribed use, some women also take Adderall to chase a high and an energy boost that gets them through a school assignment, a work project, or household responsibilities. However, taking Adderall when you do not have an applicable medical condition can lead to side effects such as insomnia, agitation, vomiting, and more.
How do you know you are addicted to Adderall? Here are a few signs to look out for:
- Excessive sleeping
- Excessive weight loss or lack of appetite
- Feeling overly excitable
- Memory loss
What to Expect at Adderall Addiction Treatment
Once you become dependent on Adderall, it can be hard to imagine functioning on a day-to-day basis without it. As a result, many women are hesitant to stop using it and seek treatment. With the proper professional help, detoxing and getting treatment doesn’t have to be scary. Our treatment team will teach you how to get the mental clarity and focus you need without using drugs. Most Adderall addiction treatment centers, like Crossroads, focus on the following:
- A variety of therapeutic modalities – These therapies could include dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), psychotherapy, or trauma therapy. Each therapy program is customized to the individual’s needs.
- 24/7 care – It’s important to have supervision throughout the entire process. Having a team trained to deal with whatever challenges arise will help you be successful in your journey. For inpatient programs, this means staff on hand around the clock in the facility. For outpatient care, they are just a phone call away should you need them at any hour.
- Balance for the whole self – Alternative therapies like yoga, acupuncture, music, equine, and faith-based therapies can balance the more clinical therapies. As a result, we can meet each client’s physical, mental, and emotional needs to help ensure success.
