Do You Need Help for Drug Addiction As A Result Of Taking Medication for Add Or Adhd

If you are trying to get clean from adderall or ritalin addiction then you might need to go to rehab. The fact of the matter is that many people who struggle with drug or alcohol addiction will never be able to get clean and sober on their own, and they need help. If you have tried to quit in the past but failed to do so then it is time to ask for help. Go to rehab and you have a real chance at changing your life and stopping ritilan abuse.

If you do choose to go to rehab then you can expect to be in detox for a few days if you have been using drugs or alcohol recently. There you will be supervised by medical staff and they will probably give you medicine to help you get through withdrawals.

After this you will likely go to residential treatment. Most rehab centers are similar in the services that they offer and most of them have the same basic setup when it comes to their programming. They will all probably have lectures and group therapy, for example. Most will also have group meetings and group discussions and various activities. And of course, most rehab centers are going to be based on the 12 step programs of AA and NA.

This is not necessarily good or bad, it is just the current state of treatment right now. If you look at the numbers across the board, you will probably decide that it is more "bad" than "good" right now, because rehab does not produce great success rates in general.

Probably about 5 percent of those who attend treatment will remain clean and sober with no slips at all for a full year. The actual percentage might be a bit higher or lower than 5 percent, when it comes to ritalin addiction but most studies put the number close to that.

If you are looking for a rehab that boasts a higher success rate, you can probably find one, but it is a scam. There are no higher success rates and there are no magic shortcuts to recovery. If you take a thousand addicts and alcoholics and send them to various treatment centers and a person is looking for a rehab to overcome adderall addiction you are going to get the same basic rates of success regardless of which treatment centers you send them to. Sometimes different numbers get published regarding this because people measure differently, but I can assure you, there is no magic bullet. Treatment is treatment. Pick one and go.

Good luck
