Stimulants Detox Treatment & Rehab Center in Kennett Square, PA

The class of drugs known as stimulants range from illicit substances (crystal meth, crack, and cocaine) to legal drugs (Ritalin, Desoxyn, Ephedrine, Concerta, and Adderall). Whether illegal or prescribed by a medical professional, each one of these substances can have a similarly destructive impact on the central nervous system and the brain.

Stimulant Detox

The importance of detox from stimulants

A doctor might prescribe a legal stimulant to increase an individual’s mental functioning and focus. However, because these substances can be very addictive, many individuals find themselves using these drugs for unintended purposes. Over time, individuals who abuse stimulants will establish a tolerance for the substance, meaning that increased doses and more frequent use will be required to achieve the desired effects. When this occurs, and a chemical dependence takes over, individuals might find themselves grappling with the negative effects of a substance use disorder that will require professional treatment and rehab, including detox, to defeat.

It takes courage to ask for help, however, those who are battling the detrimental effects of a stimulant use disorder do not need to venture into treatment and rehab by themselves. One of the primary steps in achieving sobriety is to address the presence of toxic substances in one’s body. Without ridding one’s system of substances of abuse, he or she cannot expect to move forward successfully into the next part of treatment and rehab for a stimulant addiction. A monitored detox program can help women and men who are dependent on stimulants achieve sobriety in a safe manner, and lay the foundation for strength in recovery. Thankfully, when effective rehab and detox are sought at a quality treatment center like Bowling Green Brandywine in Kennett Square, PA, healing from a stimulant addiction can occur.

Stimulant Withdrawal

What happens during stimulant withdrawal

The negative physiological symptoms that take over when an individual suddenly ends his or her habitual abuse of stimulants is known as withdrawal. Attempting to withstand withdrawal without assistance or supervision from professionals in a detox program at a stimulant addiction treatment and rehab center can have dangerous consequences, and often causes the return to stimulant use in an effort to curb the pain of the experience. Repeating this process of failed attempts at withdrawal can serve to entrench an individual even further into his or her stimulant abuse, making it much more challenging to stop his or her abuse once and for all.

While everyone might experience withdrawal differently, there are some typical symptoms that can occur at the time of this process, and some of them are listed below:

  • Dehydration
  • Memory problems
  • Jitters
  • Increased appetite
  • Anxiety
  • Chills
  • Sweats
  • Cravings
  • Fatigue
  • Depression
  • Bodily aches and pains
  • Impaired cognition

For those without a personal experience with addiction, it may be challenging to understand why an individual would be tempted to use his or her drug of choice during the period of withdrawal. However, the above symptoms can be so painful that even an individual who really wants to end the pattern of addiction might not feel strong enough to withstand these symptoms for a long period of time. Thankfully, there is a much better way, and help in the form of supervised detox programming at a stimulant addiction treatment and rehab center that allows individuals to rid their bodies of harmful substances in a supportive, safe, and comfortable environment. Professional stimulant addiction treatment in the form of detox and rehab, like that which is available at Bowling Green in Kennett Square, PA, can help individuals find good health and healing once more.
