Stimulant abuse and addiction is, sadly, a widespread problem throughout society today. When used for legitimate purposes, stimulant medications can provide enhanced functioning for individuals who struggle to sustain attention and lack the ability to focus, such as individuals who are suffering from attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). However, stimulants also have a high potential for abuse as they can provide users with intensified levels of energy, the ability to hyperfocus, an increased sense of motivation, an enhanced sense of self-confidence, and, in some instances, a mild sense of euphoria. Whether taken in the form of a prescription medication, such as Adderall, or in the illicit form of methamphetamine (meth), the pleasurable sensations that are brought on by the use of stimulants can be appealing to many. Yet, once this pattern of abuse and addiction has developed, it can be extremely difficult to overcome and the resulting effects can be tragic on the lives of users.
At Keystone Treatment Center, we recognize the pain that accompanies an addiction to stimulants and we understand how difficult it can be to overcome this destructive behavior. For this reason, our stimulant addiction treatment center offers specialized programming that is delivered in an atmosphere of integrity, respect, accountability, trust, honesty, responsibility, and excellence so that individuals can successfully win the war against chemical dependency.
Helping a Loved One
Helping a Loved One or Family Member Get Treatment for Stimulant Addiction
Having a family member or loved one who is struggling with an addiction to stimulants can cause you to experience a great deal of worry and concern. While you know your loved one needs help in order to overcome this destructive behavior, you may be confused as to what you, personally, can do for him or her. Consider the following:
- Become educated on the signs, symptoms, and effects of stimulant abuse. It is also beneficial to research the signs of overdose so that you can be prepared in the event that an emergency occurs.
- Research various treatment centers that specialize in providing care for people who are struggling with an addiction to stimulants.
- Do not enable your loved one by making excuses for him or her, or by taking care of his or her responsibilities.
- Sit down with your loved one and have an open and honest conversation about your fears and concerns. This would also be a beneficial time to show him or her the research you have compiled regarding potential treatment centers. Also, allow your loved one to use this time to express his or her own fears and concerns. Anticipate denial and defensiveness, but remain calm and do not give up on your loved one.
- Encourage your loved one to seek rehab by assisting him or her in contacting treatment providers and offering to accompany him or her to any appointments that are scheduled.
- Once your loved one has started to take part in treatment, find out ways that you can be an active part of his or her therapeutic process, demonstrating an ongoing sense of support and encouragement throughout the entire journey.
Why Consider Rehab?
Why Consider Rehab for Stimulant Addiction
When a stimulant addiction is present and treatment is not received, the consequences can be devastating. As is true for any addiction, once an individual has become entrapped in the cycle of stimulant abuse, he or she will likely begin to make the use of that substance his or her top priority. The result of doing so can be a demise in important relationships, hindered academic or occupational functioning, and the onset of financial strife. Additionally, the prolonged abuse of stimulants can cause countless detriments to occur in regards to an individual’s health. Gastrointestinal problems, cardiovascular damage, kidney failure, respiratory distress, sexual dysfunction, and chronic muscle pain have all been known to result from stimulant abuse and addiction. These detriments, however, can all be successfully avoided when individuals choose to participate in a treatment program that offers them the assistance they need to overcome their addiction.
