Dextroamphetamine and Amphetamine (Adderall) is a prescription stimulant that has similar effects as Meth. Not everyone who uses Adderall will develop an addiction because it is commonly prescribed for the treatment of narcolepsy and ADHD. It has different effects on those two types of patients. Adderall increases dopamine and norepinephrine levels in the central nervous system, which affects how the brain pays attention and the speed at which it reacts.
An addiction can occur when a person becomes dependent on it to be able to function and be productive. Adderall addictions are very common, and Cypress Lakes Lodge has the treatment center for you or a loved one dealing with this.

Use of Adderall
The most common uses for Adderall are to treat ADHD and narcolepsy, but it can also be used by many people just trying to focus and be productive. Like Meth, it gives you focus and a greater attention span to study, get work done, and stay even stay awake. We see many college students start using Adderall recreationally to study for a big test or cram in homework to get the grades they need, or their parents need for them to graduate.
When mixed with other recreational drugs or alcohol, it can cause people to forget and possibly blackout. This can be a dangerous road to walk down.

For Family Members and Friends:
Adderall addiction is something that is happening more and more frequently among younger people who don’t necessarily need to be prescribed it. Young college students turn to this drug due to stress and anxiety of schoolwork, studying, and getting good grades to graduate.

If you or a loved one is suffering from an Adderall addiction, get the treatment and therapy that will help turn the page on the addiction.
