Find support for Amphetamine Addiction

Commonly prescribed to those struggling with medical conditions such as attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), Amphetamines are a form of stimulant drug that increases the speed at which messages travel between the body and brain.

Although Amphetamines are typically prescribed by medical professionals when required, Amphetamine drugs are frequently used for recreational purposes. For example, Speed is an Amphetamine drug consumed by adults to enhance energy and confidence.

Regrettably, recreational use of Amphetamine drugs leads to the development of Amphetamine addictions.

If you have developed an Amphetamine addiction, Amphetamine addiction treatment & rehab must be obtained.

Short and Long Term Side Effects Associated With Amphetamine Addictions

As Amphetamine is administered, various short term side effects arise. Lasting for approximately six hours, these short term side effects include a boost in energy and confidence, increased heart rate, sweating, headaches and reduced appetite.

While these short term effects alleviate naturally, frequent Amphetamine use and Amphetamine addictions cause long term side effects to arise and hinder an individual’s quality of life.

The long term side effects associated with Amphetamine addictions include anxiety, depression, irritability, agitation, mood swings, intense cravings, heart failure and organ failure. Sadly, Amphetamine addictions can also be fatal.

Amphetamine Addiction Treatment Options

From medically induced detoxifications to industry-leading psychological and well-being therapies, receiving treatment from Asana Lodge helps many overcome their substance disorder and secure a long-term recovery free from the shackles of Amphetamine drug addiction.

When treating an Amphetamine addiction, personalised treatment programmes are devised to ensure that treatment caters to the addiction and recovery needs of each of our clients. As no one addiction is the same, this is vital if long-term recoveries are to be achieved.

To provide greater insight into our Amphetamine addiction treatment options, we have delved into our treatments below.

 

Detoxification

Detoxification is often the first treatment encountered when Amphetamine addiction treatment & rehab is sought. Medically induced, our drug detox treatment initiates the withdrawal process and removes harmful toxins from the brain and body.

As detoxification is completed, the signs and symptoms associated with Amphetamine addictions alleviate, as do cravings.

 

Rehabilitation

At Asana Lodge, our Amphetamine addiction rehabilitation incorporates a wide range of psychological and well-being therapies that encourage those in recovery to come to terms with their addiction.

Psychological therapies, or talking therapies as they are otherwise known, are conducted in a one-to-one setting. While the psychological therapy administered will be dependent on many factors, our team of highly skilled psychiatrists and therapists offer the following therapies.

  • Cognitive behavioural therapy
  • Bereavement counselling
  • Trauma counselling
  • Abuse counselling
  • Satori Therapy
  • Stress management
  • NAD+ Therapy

In contrast, well-being therapies encourage our clients to reflect on their addiction and relax and recuperate by learning skills and techniques that they can use in the weeks, months and years that follow Amphetamine addiction treatment & rehab.

The well-being therapies that we offer include:

  • Yoga
  • Meditation
  • Mindfulness
  • Art classes
  • Drama therapy
  • Music therapy

Irrespective of the treatment provided during drug rehab, all of our clients have the opportunity to identify the cause of their addiction and learn how to challenge any negative behaviours or thoughts to change their outlook on life.

While doing so may not seem significant, adopting a more positive approach and overcoming pessimistic behaviours reduces the risk of relapse and ensures that those in recovery can cope and manage any triggers they may encounter upon completing Amphetamine addiction treatment & rehab.

 

Dual Diagnosis Treatment

As many Amphetamine addictions arise from mental health disorders, it is not uncommon for dual diagnosis treatment to be provided. Dual diagnosis treatment essentially treats both substance addictions and mental health disorders at the same time to ensure that both can be overcome.

Regrettably, if dual diagnosis treatment is not administered when it is needed, the risk of relapse significantly increases. This is because, left untreated, mental health disorders can cause those in recovery to once again turn to Amphetamine to relieve negative thoughts, feelings and sensations.
