Adderall is a central nervous system stimulant used to treat either ADHD or narcolepsy. Adderall typically increases attention, alertness, and energy. However, it can be addictive, and many people use this medication in ways other than as prescribed. Any other consumption of the drug may be considered misuse, especially if you’re consuming Adderall without a prescription, at a dosage higher than prescribed, or for reasons other than treating ADHD or narcolepsy.
While Adderall misuse and addiction can be dangerous, there are ways to address those issues. Adderall does not have to control your life. Our Adderall addiction treatment program can help through evidence-based therapies and a supportive, safe environment where you can focus on recovery.
The Signs of Adderall Addiction
Some individuals misuse Adderall to try to improve their mental performance or to achieve a sense of pleasure.
Addiction can be spotted in many ways. Whether it’s you or a loved one struggling with Adderall misuse, knowing when it has become an addiction can be extremely beneficial, especially when it comes to your health.
Signs of Adderall addiction can include:
- Consuming more Adderall than intended
- Impacts on professional and personal activities
- Conflict in relationships due to Adderall use
- A tolerance to Adderall (needing to use more to feel the same effects)
- Consuming Adderall despite the negative effects it has on your life
- Experiencing withdrawal when Adderall isn’t consumed
If your Adderall addiction is affecting your personal and/or professional life, if you want to stop consuming Adderall but are unable to, or if you’re feeling constant cravings and ill when you haven’t taken Adderall, know that you don’t have to live this way.
If your addiction has impacted family relationships, or if you’re not spending as much time with your significant other or children because of Adderall, those bonds can be mended.
Today, you can make the decision to leave Adderall behind. While it may seem difficult, in the end, it’s worth it.
