The Leading Adderall Addiction Treatment Center for Women

Adderall is a stimulant that is commonly used to treat symptoms associated with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). When used properly, Adderall can help women and girls who otherwise might be struggling to focus in school or at work. 

 Though this is a commonly prescribed medication that’s been proven to be both safe and effective when used as directed by a qualified physician, the ease of getting it, the potential performance-enhancing benefits, and the often euphoric side effects make Adderall a popular drug to abuse. 

 As the Partnership for Drug-Free Kids explains, many adolescent girls and women think of Adderall as a “study drug,” using it to help perform academically or maintain focus at work  

Common Signs & Symptoms of Adderall Addiction 

Women and girls can show signs and symptoms of Adderall addiction in a variety of ways, some of which are more obvious than others. If someone you know is displaying several of the following signs, it might be time to help them seek professional treatment for Adderall addiction. 

  • Dizziness 
  • Palpitations 
  • Nausea and vomiting 
  • Trouble sleeping 
  • Nervousness or shakiness 
  • Loss of appetite 
  • Weight loss 
  • Skin rashes and itching 
  • Digestive problems 
  • Restlessness 
  • Periods of extreme hyperactivity 
  • Paranoia 
  • Disrupted sex drive 
  • Hostility 
  • Mood swings 

Causes & Risk Factors of Adderall Addiction 

There are a number of factors that can increase the likelihood that a woman’s or girl’s Adderall use will develop into an addiction. Some of the more common genetic and environmental causes include: 

  • Genetic: Family history of substance use disorders or mental illness, personal history of addiction, trouble dealing with stress or pressure, history of abuse or neglect 
  • Environmental: Association with friends who abuse substances, living in areas where drugs are easily accessible 

Prevalence of Adderall Addiction 

Adderall use is relatively high in the United States due to its popularity in treating other behavioral health disorders. There are a variety of studies that provide relevant statistics related to the prevalence of Adderall abuse. 

Why Seek Adderall Addiction Treatment 

Adderall use can have many negative consequences. It’s dangerous for anyone to take a prescription stimulant that’s not prescribed to them. 

 Adderall addiction can put you at risk for any of or all the following dangerous effects: 

  • Psychosis 
  • Seizures 
  • Cardiac arrest 
  • Confusion 
  • Delusions 
  • High blood pressure 
  • Birth defects if pregnant 

What Does Adderall Withdrawal Look Like? 

Attempting to stop Adderall use after abusing the drug can be an extremely painful experience. After a prolonged period of use, your body becomes dependent on it, building up a tolerance so that you need to take greater doses to reach the same stage of effectiveness. 

The symptoms of Adderall withdrawal are the opposite of the drug’s effects. Instead of a boost in energy and concentration, a woman or girl will experience a crash that can leave her feeling slow and mentally foggy. 

Other common symptoms of Adderall withdrawal include: 

  • Lethargy 
  • Hypersomnia 
  • Irritability 
  • Agitation 
  • Highly vivid dreams 
  • Panic attacks 
  • Depression 
  • Headaches 
  • Powerful drug cravings

Choosing the Right Adderall Addiction Treatment 

An Adderall addiction can leave your physical health in shambles and also destroy relationships, hinder your academic performance, or prevent you from succeeding at work. What likely began as a way to focus can quickly spiral out of control.

Reflecting back, I can’t believe it’s been 4 years since my first stay at TK. I walked in unsure, frightened and hopeless. 12 weeks later, I walked away carrying hope that the staff and fellow patients instilled in me. The hope started to dwindle and this process repeated itself 3 more times. However, each time I discharged I walked away with news skills (thanks DBT), more sass and grew as a person with each stay.

I discharged from TK for the last time in April of 2017. I wasn’t fixed, frankly some days I didn’t even feel “better” but I was alive. I owed that to TK, especially the staff on Maple. I was truly blessed to be supported and loved by the staff. Our conversations were filled with sass and support, what more could I want?!

Okay, the part we’ve been waiting for. I’m currently 9 months into solid recovery. I can truly say I’m not just surviving, I’m thriving. In March I started TMS treatment at an outpatient level and have had incredible, life changing results. This treatment, mixed with the skills and support of TK I’m back in school finishing my bachelors in psychology and moving on to get my masters of social work.

Thank you, thank you, thank you! I cannot express my gratitude enough for the staff who never gave up on me. I was hardy easy to deal with but was ALWAYS treated with respect and love. You guys are life changers and role models. My life is better because of the advice y’all have given me.

With much love,
