Treatment Programs for Amphetamine Addiction

If you’re struggling with any type of addiction, it’s key that you reach out for help from a substance abuse treatment facility. There are many different options that you have when it comes to treatments for amphetamine as well as other substances such as alcohol addiction or opioid use disorders. Before you can commit to an addiction treatment program, there is a possibility that you may need to work through a drug detox program. The reason for this is that when you have become used to taking amphetamines, you will go through a period of amphetamine withdrawal which can make it difficult if not impossible for you to properly care for yourself. 

Once you’re no longer physically depending on amphetamines, you can better focus on working through your illicit drug abuse. One of the options that you have after drug detox is to participate in residential treatment. Residential treatment will give you the opportunity to live on the campus of the treatment facility that you choose. This allows you to address your substance abuse with the peace of mind of knowing that you will be able to live in a safe and sober environment during the time that you’re addressing your drug dependence. 

There are many people who have been taking amphetamines who simply don’t feel comfortable with the premise of inpatient treatment which is why we also offer outpatient addiction rehab. Outpatient addiction rehab will give you the flexibility that you need to work or go to school and still live at home during your drug and alcohol treatment program. There are many people who transition from an inpatient treatment program into an outpatient recovery program. 

Regardless of which amphetamine dependence programs you select, you will still need to participate in certain forms of addiction therapy so that you can address the root cause of your addiction. While addiction therapy is something that may feel uncomfortable at times, uncovering the root cause of your addiction will help you to work through these aspects of your life so that you aren’t held back by them going forward. 

If you have developed an amphetamine dependence and you’re ready to work through this drug dependence, our intake team is available around the clock to discuss the psychotic symptoms that you may be experiencing and the physical effects of taking amphetamines.
