Adderall Overview

Adderall contains a combination of amphetamine and dextroamphetamine. Amphetamine and dextroamphetamine are central nervous system stimulants that affect chemicals in the brain and nerves that contribute to hyperactivity and impulse control. Adderall is used to treat narcolepsy and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). Adderall may also be used for purposes not listed in this medication guide.

Adderall Abuse Treatment

When you reach the point where you know that you need help conquering your addiction, you need the help provided by a drug treatment facility. These facilities offer both inpatient and outpatient treatment. With outpatient treatment, you get the chance to go home and see your family every night. Inpatient treatment typically requires more dedication on your part because a user must stay at the facility for 28 days or longer. The Adderall abuse help provided by a treatment center does more than just get you off drug because the center also shows you how to live your life. The center will show you simple tricks and techniques that you can use to manage stress and handle daily tasks without the need for Adderall. Many centers even let you practice certain situations that you might encounter when you get home.

Adderall Abuse Statistics

College students are twice as likely to abuse Adderall: And, from there, full-timers between the ages of 18 and 22 were the demographic most at risk for taking the stimulant without a prescription, at twice the rate of part-timers and older students.Fifteen percent of college students have illegally ingested Adderall, Ritalin or another stimulant in the past year: These numbers, which fluctuate based on individual campuses, reflect a study conducted by the National Survey on Drug Use and Health. Only around 2 percent of these hold a prescription, and 14 percent state that their peers have made offers of money or favors if they agree to hand over their pills.Most reported incidents of Adderall abuse occur when desperate students without prescriptions need to focus on exams or assignments, but a few do enjoy it for recreational purposes. For one thing, it’s an incredibly easy-to-find amphetamine, since doctors prescribe it for attention deficit disorder (ADD) attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and other common learning disabilities. According to the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services, 90 percent of college students who ingested Adderall without a prescription also binge drank or qualified as “heavy drinkers” over those who did not. This statistic applies to both of-age and underage respondents. Forty percent of teens think it’s OK to abuse prescription drugs because they’re “much safer” than the street equivalent: This is despite the fact that Adderall, when used outside of a carefully controlled environment, is basically the exact same thing as the street equivalent. Furthermore, 29 percent believe that, because of its prescription status, addiction is impossible, and 39 percent think that, because of this, it’s acceptable to abuse without using a doctor as an intermediary.
