Medically Assisted
Adderall Detoxification

Adderall is a prescription stimulant, most commonly used for the treatment of attention deficit-hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). Over the course of the past several years, Adderall abuse and addiction have become major issues among adolescents and young adults, most who obtain the medication from a close friend or family member. According to a study published by John Hopkins University, while the amount of written prescriptions has remained relatively stagnant over the past several years, the rates of Adderall abuse have been on a steep incline among members of this demographic (among young adults between the ages of 18 and 25, more specifically). From 2006 to 2011, researches saw the rates of Adderall abuse increase a total of 67 percent among young adults, while the frequency of associated visits to the emergency room rose by 156 percent. While many young adults mistakenly believe that Adderall is safe to use because it was – at least initially – prescribed by a medical professional, this could not be farther from the truth. Not only is Adderall extremely dangerous when taken in high doses, but it is one of the most habit-forming prescription stimulants on the market.

If you have been suffering at the hands of an Adderall abuse disorder of any severity for any length of time, medically monitored detox is a necessary first step. Princeton Detox and Recovery Center offers an effective curriculum of clinical care – one that begins with a safe and pain-free withdrawal and concludes with in-depth aftercare planning.

Adderall Addiction – Signs & Symptoms

When it comes to prescription drug abuse there are several consistent symptoms, like “doctor shopping” (attempting to get more than one prescription at a time), raiding medicine cabinets and purchasing the medication from friends or acquaintances.

Other common symptoms associated with Adderall abuse include:

  • Hyperactivity/sudden bursts of energy
  • Mood swings/irritability and agitation
  • A lack of appetite which often leads to weight loss 
  • Increased sociability and talkativeness
  • Extreme anxiety and panic attacks 
  • Crushing Adderall in order to feel the effects more quickly 
  • Spending a significant amount of time obtaining, using and recovering from the effects of Adderall 

Adderall Withdrawal – Signs & Symptoms

According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, the most common side effects of prescription stimulant withdrawal include depression, sleep problems and excessive tiredness.

Other symptoms that are commonly associated with Adderall withdrawal include:

  • Irritability, agitation and mood swings 
  • Nausea and vomiting 
  • Increase in appetite, which can lead to temporary weight gain
  • Severe stomach cramping 

While the physical symptoms of Adderall withdrawal are generally not severe and can often be treated with over-the-counter pain medications, the psychological withdrawal symptoms always require professional treatment in a medical detox facility.

Why Medical Detox Is Necessary For Adderall Addiction

When it comes to Adderall withdrawal, many mistakenly believe that because the physical symptoms are rarely severe, medical detox is not necessary. However, the psychological symptoms are so uncomfortable and disruptive to day-to-day life that they often lead to relapse when not effectively treated in a medically monitored environment.

While the physical symptoms are often treated with safe and non-narcotic pain medications, we utilize the following medications to alleviate psychological symptoms:

  • Antidepressants
  • Anti-anxiety medications
  • Non-narcotic sleep aids like melatonin

The Detox Services We Provide For Adderall Addiction

We believe that medically monitored detox should be about much more than physical stabilization. We believe that the most effective detox programs work hard to lay a solid therapeutic foundation for lasting sobriety.

Detox services that we provide include:

  • In-depth clinical and medical assessments – Upon admission to Princeton Detox and Recovery Center, each client undergoes an initial evaluation which helps us determine which detox methods are going to be the most beneficial for each unique case. The assessment covers medical history, personal and family history of substance abuse and any underlying mental or physical health conditions.
  • Case management services – Each client is also assigned a case manager upon admission, who walks them through every phase of the early recovery process while offering additional support. Case managers help develop thorough aftercare programs and serve as the main point of contact for family members.
  • Medication management – If a client comes to us with a pre-prescribed medication, we hold onto the medication and administer it whenever it is meant to be taken. If the medication is habit-forming – or if it is  the main source of the addictive disorder – we carefully look into safe, alternative options.
  • Medication Assisted Treatment – When it comes to Adderall addiction there are numerous medications that can prove effective in alleviating the physical and psychological symptoms associated with acute and post-acute withdrawal, including anti-anxiety medications, antidepressants, over-the-counter pain medications and non-addictive sleep aids. If deemed appropriate for the individual case one or all of these medications might be prescribed by our team of experienced doctors.

  • Recovery-related group sessions – At Princeton Detox and Recovery Center we believe that the most effective program of medical detox provides therapeutic services in addition to traditional detoxification methodologies. We offer numerous recovery-related group sessions for clients to take advantage of if they are feeling physically up to doing so. Some of these sessions include relapse prevention training, 12 step program introduction and immersion, the development of healthy coping mechanisms, life skills training, dual diagnosis treatment discussions and trauma-informed care.
  • Intensive individual and group therapy sessions – It is never too soon in the recovery process to begin intensive therapeutic intervention. In many cases, the symptoms of Adderall withdrawal are mild enough that clients feel physically up to participating in individual therapy sessions (which take place at least once per week) and group therapy sessions (which take place on a daily basis).
  • Family therapy and other family-oriented services and resources – Adderall addiction gravely affects everyone it touches – namely the loved ones of the client. In order for the client to experience long-term success in recovery, his or her family must heal simultaneously. We offer family therapy sessions as well as a wide range of additional resources, such as family-oriented support groups.
  • 24/7 medical assistance – While the physical symptoms associated with Adderall addiction are generally not life-threatening, the psychological symptoms can be severe and can lead to a host of serious side effects if not adequately treated. However, if a client does suffer from pre-existing medical conditions, around-the-clock care is especially important.
  • Home-stye retreat amenities – Not only do we provide a safe and pain-free withdrawal experience, but we have carefully designed a unique inpatient detox environment that lends itself to client comfort. We provide beautifully appointed private bedrooms, comfortable common areas and a fully stocked kitchen in addition to nutritious chef-prepared meals that are served three times a day.
  • Personalized aftercare planning – Aftercare is crucial to every successful recovery program. Once an individual has completed medically monitored detox, he or she must transfer immediately into an inpatient treatment center in order to avoid relapse. After inpatient treatment, he or she must continue with a lower level of clinical care and, in most cases, move into a sober living home for an extended period of time (generally up to six months).
