Dexedrine Addiction Rehab Centers

Dexedrine is a psychostimulant drug that is used to treat the symptoms of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). Dexedrine is also used to treat narcolepsy but when abused the drug has effects similar to methamphetamine. Dexedrine contains a Schedule II controlled substance called dextroamphetamine which is highly addictive both physically and psychologically.

Dexedrine addiction can result in serious physical and psychological side effects including weight loss, liver toxicity, increased heart rate, increased blood pressure, itchy skin, heart attach and even death. Psychological symptoms of Dexedrine addiction include anxiety, obsessive behaviors and amphetamine psychosis which is a serious psychiatric disorder.

Treatment for Dexedrine addiction may include detoxification followed by counseling and therapy. Cognitive behavioral therapy is the most common approach to Dexedrine addiction but other forms of psychotherapy are also used to treat this serious condition. In some cases, medication may also be administered to alleviate some of the side effects of Dexedrine withdrawal.

Various types of workshops and group therapy sessions can be offered for the treatment of Dexedrine addiction. Individuals who are addicted to Dexedrine must be taught how to cope with the addiction and to avoid dependency on Dexedrine in order to prevent future relapse. Drug rehab centers may provide medication to prevent pain or nausea associated with Dexedrine addiction withdrawal during the detoxification phase of treatment.
