We offer the most comprehensive set of addiction treatment methods available. Our substance abuse rehab program, for treating and healing addiction to dangerous illegal drugs such as amphetamines, has proven to be remarkably effective.
Amphetamine addiction is a particularly serious problem. Dependence on this kind of drug forms quickly and the results are exceptionally harmful. Amphetamines have an elevated potential for chemical dependency that often causes the health of the user to decline rapidly. Call now to learn how you can finally break the cycle of amphetamine abuse.
Commonly prescribed amphetamines (Adderall, Dexedrine) and 'street' amphetamines (Speed) are used recreationally to increase performance and stimulate the neural system. An amphetamine high can last for days, followed by a crash, which will often last for days as well. Rapid decay of teeth, jaw clenching, extreme thirst, hyperactivity, dilated pupils, panic attacks, talkativeness, skin sores, anxiety, and psychosis are common side effects of amphetamine abuse. During amphetamine detox, drug cravings can be very intense and individuals going through detox may experience depression, fatigue, anxiety, paranoia, an inability to concentrate, irritability, and intense insomnia. These symptoms can last anywhere from a few days to a few weeks.

Our groundbreaking addiction treatment philosophy allows us to heal your amphetamine addiction on an individual basis, taking into consideration your personal history, career pressures, relationship issues, and body chemistry. If you or a loved one is struggling with addiction and would like to stop using amphetamines, please call us right away. Take action now — before it’s too late.
