Today, people across the country struggle with substance addiction. Many consider alcohol and drugs like heroin and meth to be more dangerous than other addictive substances. In reality, thousands of people every day struggle with prescription drug addiction. Some take opioids like Vicodin, while others take benzos like Klonopin to calm their nervous systems. These depressants numb physical and psychological pain. Stimulants, on the other hand, are common prescription drugs that enhance alertness and focus. The most common stimulant, Adderall, is prescribed every day. Stimulants are just as addictive as prescription depressant medications. Today, there are Adderall addiction treatment programs to help.

What Is Adderall?
Adderall is a commonly prescribed stimulant. Often used to treat ADHD, Adderall is an amphetamine. It may seem relatively safe because it is prescribed so frequently. It can, however, be dangerous when people use it without restraint. Many individuals take Adderall to increase focus, stay awake, and be more productive at school or work. People abusing Adderall may not fit the general description of a drug user. Adderall users are often highly motivated for success and usually take Adderall to get ahead at work or school. Common signs of Adderall use include:
- Loss of appetite
- Social isolation
- Manic behavior
- Talking more or faster than usual
- Memory Loss
Showing these signs of Adderall use may indicate someone is taking more Adderall than prescribed or taking a medication obtained without a prescription. Many young professionals and students take Adderall because it makes them feel success is easier to get. Abusing Adderall can lead to addiction and other health problems.
Spotting Adderall Addiction and How to Help
Adderall addiction can be hard to spot. Many don’t realize their successful, motivated, and energetic family members are struggling with Adderall dependency. Confronting loved ones can be difficult and often leads to denial, lying, and manipulation. If someone you know is struggling with Adderall, seek an Adderall treatment program right away and watch for these health complications:
- Dry Mouth
- Weight Loss
- Loss of Appetite
Adderall may seem harmless, but its effects can be detrimental. Adderall treatment programs can help those struggling with Adderall dependency regain control of their lives. Programs offer tools to cope with addiction triggers. For many highly motivated Adderall users, addiction treatment programs can help them gain a new perspective on life and learn to slow down at work, home, and school. These programs can help people work through social pressures and stigmas to uncover the root of Adderall addiction with psychiatric support.
