Adderall Addiction Treatment (Rehab and Detox)

Adderall addiction can be a devastating illness, impacting every facet of your life and leaving you feeling hopeless. However, the first thing to understand is that there is hope. Sanctuary Lodge offers a comprehensive Adderall addiction treatment programme with a combination of detox, rehab therapy and dedicated relapse prevention. With this thorough approach to treatment delivered by our expert team, you will have everything you need to break free from stimulant addiction to Adderall and start a healthy life full of new opportunities.

Stage one: Medical Adderall detox

Medical detox is the first step in all of Sanctuary Lodge’s stimulant addiction treatment programmes. It involves letting your body safely remove the drug under close observation by medical professionals. They are there to keep you comfortable and safe by safely managing any Adderall withdrawal symptoms that emerge.

Medical Adderall detox is crucial because it sets you up for success in your recovery journey. Detox reduces the risk of slipping back into use and gets you ready physically and mentally for the next steps in treatment.

Preparing for Adderall withdrawal

Knowing what to expect when you stop taking Adderall can really help you prepare and make the Adderall withdrawal process less daunting.

Adderall withdrawal symptoms include emotional changes like irritability, anxiety and mood swings, as well as physical effects such as extreme fatigue, changes in appetite and sometimes headaches or a sense of physical lethargy. You will also likely experience intense cravings for Adderall and difficulties in concentration or mental focus.

It is important to note, however, that Adderall withdrawal symptoms, their severity and duration can vary widely based on personal health, dosage and how long you have been using the drug, but most people will experience some or all of the above symptoms.

How long does Adderall withdrawal last?

Adderall withdrawal symptoms generally begin within a few hours to a day after you last took the drug, with the intensity of symptoms usually peaking around the third to fifth day. However, while the acute physical symptoms typically subside within one to two weeks, psychological symptoms such as mood swings and cravings may persist for several weeks afterwards. It is crucial to have professional support during this time to prevent unavoidable distress and protect you from relapse.

Stage two: Adderall rehab treatment

Adderall rehab treatment is a structured therapeutic programme designed to help you address both the psychological aspects of addiction and the behavioural changes needed for long-term recovery. The primary aim is to help you understand the root causes of your Adderall use, learn new ways to cope and deal with challenges in life and give you the knowledge and tools you need to prevent relapse.

At Sanctuary Lodge, our inpatient Adderall rehab treatment programme ensures a thorough recovery. It works alongside detox to target every aspect of dependency and provides several important benefits, including:

  • Better self-awareness
  • Improved emotional regulation
  • Improved physical and mental health
  • The chance to form friendships and connections with staff and peers
  • A wide range of therapies to meet your specific needs

Adderall rehab therapy at Sanctuary Lodge

Sanctuary Lodge’s diverse selection of Adderall rehab therapies can help you understand why you started taking drugs, how to deal with underlying issues without Adderall and the changes you need to make to sustain sobriety. Some of the therapies that our clients find most useful include:

Individual therapy
This is a cornerstone of your treatment, where you will meet one-on-one with a therapist to dig deep into your personal history, uncovering the root causes of your Adderall use. You will also develop coping strategies which are specific to you and which will help you handle stress and triggers without resorting to Adderall.
Group therapy
In addition to individual therapy, you will join others who are on similar paths in a facilitated group setting. This is a great way to share experiences and challenges, build a support network and learn from others’ experiences.
Dialectical behaviour therapy (DBT)
DBT is particularly useful if you struggle with emotional instability or intense feelings – a common issue among those addicted to stimulants like Adderall – as it teaches skills for better emotional regulation and how to cope with stress in a more balanced way.
Motivational interviewing
Through motivational interviewing, your therapist will help you find and harness your personal motivations for recovery. This technique is particularly effective in strengthening your commitment to change and overcoming mental barriers or doubts.
Family therapy
Adderall abuse can have a devastating effect on your friends and family and cause enormous tension in relationships. In family therapy sessions, your loved ones will learn all about recovery, helping to repair and strengthen these relationships and establish a supportive home environment.
Art therapy
Art therapy provides a creative outlet to express any thoughts or feelings you have about addiction, rehab or anything else. It can be a powerful way to explore anything that you find difficult to share with others.
Meditation and mindfulness
These practices can help you to control your emotional reactions, improve your mental health and better manage cravings and impulses. They are some of the most important techniques to take into the relapse prevention stage as they can help you remain present when issues arise in your life.

Stage three: Adderall relapse prevention

Completing rehab is a significant achievement, but the journey to recovery doesn’t end there. Returning to everyday life can present challenges, and staying vigilant against relapse is crucial. At Sanctuary Lodge, we are committed to supporting you every step of the way, offering personalised relapse prevention plans designed to safeguard your sobriety and promote lasting recovery. Key strategies for preventing a return to Adderall include:

Attending aftercare
Our aftercare sessions are like a safety net, offering guidance and encouragement as you navigate life after Adderall rehab. They involve group therapy sessions for a year after you leave—completely free of charge—and can act as your connection to the Sanctuary Lodge family.
Identifying and managing triggers
Triggers are all the things, places and people that can throw you off track and tempt you back into old habits. Sanctuary Lodge will arm you with the tools and strategies you need to spot and deal with your triggers without relying on Adderall to get you through.
Engaging in support groups
Support groups like Narcotics Anonymous are a chance to connect with others who understand your journey and can offer a shoulder to lean on when things get tough. Together, you will laugh, cry and celebrate each other’s victories as you navigate the road to recovery.
Involvement in our alumni network
Once you’ve completed your Adderall rehab programme, you will be invited to join our fantastic alumni network. This is like a built-in support system, offering you continued connection, regular events and invaluable resources for life.
Embracing healthy lifestyle changes
Embracing a healthy lifestyle means eating well, exercising regularly and making choices that nourish your body, mind and soul. Together, we will encourage you to explore new hobbies and find ways to stay active and content.
Learning stress management techniques
Some stress is a natural part of life, but when it gets too much, it can be one of the biggest relapse triggers. With our stress management techniques, you will learn how to deal with stress more effectively and stay cool, calm and collected without the need for Adderall.
