Adderall addiction is responsible for many health risks and negative health consequences. Long-term misuse of Adderall is most known for:

  • Damage to the cardiovascular system, causing things like elevated heart rate and high blood pressure
  • Insomnia and other disturbances to the sleep cycle that last for extended periods
  • Creation of mental health conditions like generalized anxiety disorder, depression, and overall irritability
  • Malnutrition and weight loss due to the consistent suppression of the appetite
  • Damage to the dopamine system, and the corresponding inability of their brain to make enough, which lead to considerable emotional and cognitive problems

In the most serious cases, Adderall addiction and the rigors of withdrawal have the potential to cause a stroke, heart attack, or sudden death. This is why getting help for Adderall addiction from experienced addiction professionals is a critical step to ensuring safety during early recovery.

A crucial part of being able to get effective help, when that help is needed. That said, being able to recognize some of the signs and symptoms of Adderall addiction is the first step in understanding when help is needed, and seeking that help. Some of the most common symptoms include:

  • Increased tolerance for Adderall, eventually requiring larger or more frequent doses to achieve the desired effects
  • Ongoing, intense cravings for Adderall, particularly when not taking it
  • Experiencing withdrawal symptoms like fatigue, depression, and elevated appetite when not using Adderall
  • The inability to stop using it, despite negative consequences
  • Wanting to cut down to stop usage, but being unable to do so personally
  • Using Adderall in dangerous situations, such as driving, or engaging in risky behaviors while under the effects of Adderall

If you think that you or someone you care about may be struggling with Adderall addiction, based on the presence of some of these signs, it’s vital to seek professional help as soon as possible from a specialized Adderall addiction treatment center.

The staff here has changed my life. I will never forget everything they all have done but I will never forget how much the nurse Jeanie helped me. The therapist there is also amazing and I wouldn't be who I am today if it weren't for them. I recommend this place to everyone I know who is struggling.



I loved Capo Canyon Recovery! The staff was amazing and compassionate at every turn. The house was beyond fantastic! The backyard was my favorite place to hangout, there were tiny lizards, hummingbirds, and butterflies galore.

If you’ve ever been to treatment and found yourself at capo canyon it would be readily apparent that this place is different from any treatment center in the United States. Nobody arrives at a detox/stabilization program in their best shape but what sets capo canyon apart is the care and compassion the on-site nurses and all the staff show.

Our daughter has been at Casa for 90 days and has been in previous rehab centers. At Casa she has made amazing progress and she has been a some what difficult case to deal with. We have had an open line of communication with the Center and they have been tremendously helpful not only with our daughter but supporting us along the way. I would recommend Casa for anyone needing professional help in various areas.

Individualized Treatment Programs

When it comes to actually finding and choosing the right addiction treatment center, there are a few things to keep in mind:

  • Make sure the center is accredited and licensed
  • Ensure the staff all have proper experience and credentials
  • Verify that the treatment center offers the treatment programs and methods that you prefer
  • Double-check that they offer aftercare plans that meet your needs

For individuals who seek professional treatment for their Adderall addiction, there are many types of treatments. Each one is created or designed to handle different aspects of the recovery process. Below are four common components of overall treatment, and how they’re used.

Medically Supervised Stabilization

Stabilization is the first step in any recovery journey, and medically supervised detoxification can help individuals entering treatment to more safely and comfortably complete the detox and acute withdrawal stage. This process is guided by experienced medical professionals, and it helps give the individual the stable footing they’ll need to continue focusing on their treatment.

Behavioral Therapies

All patients will generally have one or more types of behavioral therapy added to their recovery program. These are used to address the psychological aspects of addiction. They will commonly include:

  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) – CBT helps patients identify and even begin to change the maladaptive thought patterns and behaviors that contribute to the addiction.
  • Motivational Interviewing (MI) – MI is a technique centered around the patient that helps the individual to explore and clearly define their goals for treatment and keeps them more deeply engaged and invested in the treatment.
  • Contingency Management (CM) – CM is an approach that is incentive-based, and rewards individuals for reaching specific milestones or treatment goals, and maintaining sobriety.

Individual, Group and Family Therapy

Therapy is a critical component of all successful recovery efforts. Therapy and counseling, not only in group and individual settings, but in family therapy settings as well, is one of the best ways for individuals in recovery to build more effective communication skills, and emotional regulation tools, and to learn insights and best practices from others. This makes group and family therapy one of the greatest opportunities for an individual in recovery to learn about their own addiction.

Pharmacological Treatments

Another treatment component that is often incorporated into recovery plans is a medication management program. In many cases, medication is prescribed to help improve or advance addiction treatment. The medications that are used will often help reduce cravings and lower the intensity of withdrawal symptoms. This dramatically boosts the chances of recovery success.

While incredibly useful and widely prescribed, Adderall also has a considerable potential for addiction, which can result in devastating and life-changing consequences. However, by reaching out to the appropriate treatment channels, like Capo Canyon, individuals with Adderall addictions can begin to overcome their dependence on this common prescription medication. Capo Canyon is a leader among Adderall addiction treatment centers and allows individuals to create a highly-individualized treatment for Adderall addiction. By reaching out to Capo Canyon Recovery today, you can take the first step toward a sober future.
