Amphetamine Rehab in Cincinnati

Amphetamines are a group of stimulants classified as either prescription medications or illegal drugs. In both cases, their basic effects are the same. However, the context of amphetamine use matters. Use of a prescription stimulant under a doctor’s supervision is generally safe. In stark contrast, misuse of amphetamine medication can put you on the short path to addiction. The same is true for any use of an illegal form of the drug. 

You or your loved one can recover from amphetamine addiction, regardless of how your problems began. Together or separately, several kinds of treatment have known effectiveness in a well-designed rehab program. Whenever possible, you should attend such a program close to home. The convenience of a local provider can help boost your chances of enrolling in rehab. It can also increase your chances of attending regularly and completing your amphetamine treatment plan.

Amphetamines and Stimulant Use Disorder

Amphetamines are a category of related stimulants that share key chemical features. The classic example of this category is the compound known simply as amphetamine. Other close chemical relatives include:

  • Dextroamphetamine
  • Methamphetamine 

Legally made-amphetamine has several possible uses. Most people receive it as part of their treatment for attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). You may also receive legal amphetamine to combat the effects of narcolepsy. 

In any form, amphetamine produces effects on your brain and body that are typical of all stimulants. These effects center on increases in such things as your:

  • Heart rate and blood pressure
  • Level of energy and alertness
  • Breathing rate
  • Ability to focus and pay attention

Like other stimulants, amphetamine can also trigger a sharp increase in your brain’s pleasure response. This fact helps account for stimulants’ status as one of the nation’s chief sources of prescription drug problems.  

Stimulant Use Disorder

Recurring, excessive use of amphetamine leaves you vulnerable to stimulant use disorder. The symptoms of this disorder can include clinical amphetamine addiction. You may also fall into a pattern of amphetamine misuse that:

  • It doesn’t bear the characteristics of addiction
  • It still harms you and interferes with your ability to stay functional

In addition, stimulant use disorder can include both addiction and non-addiction-related symptoms.

Amphetamine Addiction Treatment Options at Resurge

Similar methods are used to treat all cases of stimulant use disorder. That’s true whether you have problems with amphetamine or another substance like cocaine. The standard for effective care is based on the model of evidence-based treatment. Treatments of this type:

  • Have been tested in randomized controlled trials or other kinds of scientific studies
  • Show usefulness in a variety of situations and for a large number of people
  • Have been designated as generally safe when used in a professional setting

This rigorous standard forms the baseline for our customized recovery plans at Resurge Recovery. We primarily rely on three forms of treatment known to help people affected by stimulant problems. The first of these treatments is motivational interviewing. The second is cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT). The third is relapse prevention.

Motivational interviewing helps you identify any internal resistance to rehab participation. It also enables you to work through this resistance and find your reasons for wanting to get and stay sober. This kind of personal clarification can play a significant role in your ability to make progress during treatment. 

In CBT, you develop mental and behavioral habits that help you avoid using amphetamines. You also:

  • Shift away from habits that don’t help you stay sober
  • Learn how to tell the difference between beneficial and harmful thoughts and behaviors

CBT itself can function as a form of relapse prevention. We also further support you with additional counseling focusing on this critical goal. Therapy and counseling may occur one-on-one or in group sessions with your rehab peers.

You also have access to other forms of treatment at our amphetamine rehab in Cincinnati. For example, we provide something called 12-step facilitation therapy. This therapy helps you combine a mutual self-help group with your rehab plan. We also feature psychoeducation services that help you understand how and why you developed stimulant use disorder. In addition, you may benefit from holistic options such as yoga or mindfulness therapy.

Intensive Outpatient Amphetamine Rehab in Cincinnati

What’s the difference between Resurge’s two outpatient programs for amphetamine problems? In our standard program, you take part in recovery activities for up to eight hours a week. This level of treatment will typically support recovery from milder cases of addiction and amphetamine abuse.

In our intensive program, you attend recovery sessions for at least nine hours a week. However, depending on your situation, you may need more help. The maximum amount of required time is 19 hours a week. This level of treatment typically supports people who:

  • Have mild, moderate, or moderate-to-severe problems
