Keep in mind that there different websites that offer an online assessment so that you can get a better idea if you or a loved one may be struggling with drug addiction. From there, you can decide whether you’re going to commit to an abuse and addiction treatment plan. 

Amphetamine Withdrawal Symptoms

A key aspect that should be part of every substance abuse treatment program is a plan for detox. Amphetamine withdrawal is a serious concern due to the fact that many withdrawal symptoms associated with abuse and addiction could be potentially deadly unless you get the withdrawal and overdose prevention care that you need. On average, drug detox is something that will last approximately seven days during which time you may experience the following withdrawal symptoms: 

  • Cravings 
  • Shakiness 
  • Nausea 
  • Fatigue 
  • Headaches 
  • Trouble breathing 

One of the dangerous things about withdrawal symptoms is the fact that you cannot predict exactly which withdrawal symptoms you will experience during your time in withdrawal. Therefore, it’s important that you surround yourself with the medical care and attention that you need during this uncertain time. 

What is Treatment Like for Amphetamine Addiction?

There are several different types of treatment options that you have when you’re ready to address your amphetamine addiction. Once you complete the detox process, you will be able to transition into an inpatient or an outpatient treatment program. If you feel as though you need a safe and protected environment during the time that you’re in treatment, then the best option for you may be to commit to an inpatient treatment program. During the time that you’re in inpatient treatment, you will live on the campus of our treatment facility and enjoy around-the-clock care from our treatment team. 

An outpatient treatment program, on the other hand, is more flexible. This is a great option for a person who may have work or school responsibilities and is unable to live on our campus. You will still be able to complete your treatment without feeling as though they need to jeopardize your personal or professional responsibilities. 

Why Amphetamine is So Addictive

Amphetamines are something that has a direct impact on your central nervous system. As a result, there is an increase in dopamine production in your brain which is something that can make you feel happy or relaxed for a period of time. However, the impact of this drug on your central nervous system is short-lived which is something that leaves your brain and body craving more. Once you open the door to a substance containing amphetamine, you always run the risk of developing a serious addiction.
