Treating Stimulant Addiction

 

Stimulants are increasingly popular drugs used for a variety of effects.

In illegal use settings, stimulants are often used to increase dopamine and feelings of pleasure. Common stimulants include cocaine, amphetamines, ecstasy, methamphetamines, and a wide variety of prescription drugs. There are many factors that feed into stimulant addiction, including physical dependence and psychological cravings. At Banyan Treatment Center Massachusetts, we provide safe addiction treatment in Massachusetts, helping patients overcome their addictions to stimulants.

Detoxing from Stimulants

Before full therapy can begin, patients need to successfully detox from stimulants. Detoxification allows the body to break free from the physical controls of drugs or alcohol. Common stimulant withdrawal symptoms include:

  • Depression
  • Hypersomnia
  • Fatigue
  • Insomnia
  • Anxiety
  • Poor Concentration
  • Irritability
  • Cravings
  • Psychomotor Retardation
  • Increased Appetite
  • Paranoia
Our Banyan Treatment Center Family of facilities includes safe medically monitored detox services to help manage these and many other symptoms of stimulant detox. The specific dose, drug type, and duration of addiction will all influence the intensity and duration of withdrawals.

Therapies for Stimulant Addiction

After detoxing from stimulants, patients are encouraged to enter treatment programs. Our options for addiction treatment in Massachusetts include PHP, IOP, and OP treatment.
