Effective Treatment for the Addiction of Amphetamine


Amphetamine Use & Addiction

Amphetamines are a stimulant drug which is most commonly used to treat attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), and sleep disorders such as narcolepsy. It has also been used for weight loss but is now banned in many countries due to its negative health effects and addictive properties (although it is still often found available for purchase online).

Several weeks of amphetamine use can lead to physical and psychological dependence and withdrawal effects may occur soon after the last dose of the drug has worn off. The drug is meant to be taken in tablet or capsule form, but those who abuse the drug often empty the powder from capsules or crush tablets and snort them. This allows the drug effects to hit them faster. A combination of withdrawal symptoms, fatigue and drug cravings causes the user to continue seeking the drug and eventually develop an addiction.

Serious health effects are common with amphetamine use as follows:

  • Irregular heartbeat
  • High blood pressure
  • Severe headaches and/or blurred vision
  • Restlessness or tremors
  • Anxiety/nervousness
  • Insomnia

Is A Medically Supervised Detox Required for Amphetamine Addiction Treatment?

Amphetamine withdrawal symptoms include psychomotor agitation or retardation, fatigue, unpleasant dreams, increased appetite, and both insomnia and hypersomnia. While these withdrawal symptoms are not usually life-threatening, it may be advisable to be under the watch of a medical practitioner or addiction counsellor who has experience with these symptoms.

Why Choose Inpatient Therapy for the Issues That Cause Addiction?

1. No triggers

Many people who begin using amphetamine and later get addicted, do so in order to stay awake or have increased energy for long durations of time – often to get through work or school. Going away to an inpatient addiction treatment centre allows clients to get away from these situations that trigger amphetamine use which reduces cravings and allows them to focus more fully on recovery.

2. Reduced levels of stress

Other than getting healthy once again, residential rehab leaves very little for clients to worry about. All-inclusive of meals, maid service and more, inpatient treatment is like a small oasis that allows clients to focus entirely on recovery.

3. 24-hour care

Mild withdrawal symptoms maybe last for several weeks, and counselling therapy is bound to bring up a plethora of emotions. No matter what clients are dealing with however, residential rehab provides round-the-clock care.

4. Group and one-on-one counselling therapy

Getting to know the other people at the centre and hear their stories is a great way to learn more about the disease of addiction. Both group and one-on-one therapy sessions are an integral part of addiction treatment.

5. Confidentiality

All treatment is completely confidential. The only people that will know about your recovery are the people you choose to tell.

6. Daily and weekly schedule

Comprehensive and effective drug dependency treatment consists of more than just counselling. Art therapy, physical fitness, yoga and more are scheduled into daily and weekly schedules to help heal both the body and the mind in a way that sets clients up for long-term recovery.

More Information About Amphetamine Addiction

Addiction is ugly, but the signs of drug use aren’t always easy to detect. Even so, the sneaking suspicion that a person you care about is losing themselves to addiction is troubling, to say the least. A sense of dread creeps in. How do you know if a person you care about is at risk?

The signs are almost always there. Knowing what to look for can help you determine whether a person you care about needs treatment for amphetamine addiction.

Different amphetamines affect people differently, but they all excite the nervous system. This elevates the heart rate and other body processes. With that in mind, a person currently under the influence of amphetamines is likely to appear wakeful, excitable and alert – with elevated vital signs. These are some of the common indicators:

  • Elevated heart rate
  • Increased body temperature
  • Talkativeness
  • Excessive energy
  • Unusual confidence
  • Restlessness or jitteriness

The amphetamine high is difficult for users to hide – especially from loved ones and people who know them well. Talking faster and much more than usual is a key giveaway. The same goes for extreme restlessness. Users are unable to sleep during (and often after) the high, so sleeplessness or the development of new and unusual sleeping habits can also be a clue.

These behaviours and side effects are not a 100-percent-sure sign that a person is using amphetamines. In all fairness, they could be attributed to a host of other innocuous circumstances. However, it’s safe to say that nearly all users will exhibit some combination of the above.

One of the reasons amphetamine abuse is so dangerous is that tolerance develops faster than many people expect. The body quickly adapts to the presence of amphetamine-induced neurotransmitters. A dose that achieved the desired result last month, last week or even yesterday no longer does the trick. The brain wants more – and it urges the user to make that happen.

The brain needs to feel that it’s involved in worthwhile activities. Once it has been hijacked by the neurotransmitters activated by amphetamine use, all other activities become less important. The need to take more becomes a core problem. Taking more requires more time, more energy and more money. Activities and people that used to be part of the user’s daily routine must be set aside so they can focus on scoring and getting high again.

At the same time, the increased doses required to satisfy the user’s cravings take a heavy toll on their body. Medical complications may develop, from superficial sores on the skin and mouth to serious organ damage.

This is the nature of addiction; it destroys the user’s life. And its effects ripple into the lives of everyone around them.

Although more expensive than outpatient addiction treatment, it is important to remember that cost should not be the most important factor in making a decision about which rehab is best for you. It is important to consider the efficacy of the programme as well as the qualification of the counsellors. That being said, The Cabin Group is proud to offer world-class treatment at just a fraction of the cost of similar or lesser rehab facilities in Western countries.
