Learn About Stimulant Addiction Treatment

Treatment for stimulant addiction at Bradford Recovery Center in Millerton, PA

Stimulant addiction is a substance use disorder characterized by a chemical dependency on both legal and illegal substances, including methamphetamines, cocaine, and prescription medications that treat conditions such as narcolepsy or attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). When people take stimulants, they typically feel a rush of pleasure and energy, mentally alert, and hypersensitive to sights and sounds. Their heart also races, their blood pressure goes up, and their breathing gets heavier. But the effects of stimulants are usually very short-lived depending on what stimulant the individual is using and how much they have taken.

Stimulants are highly addictive, so it is common for individuals to develop a stimulant use disorder within only a week of using meth or cocaine or abusing prescription stimulants. As an individual’s substance use increases in severity, they often develop a tolerance for the drug they are using. Over time, the individual must take more and more stimulants to feel that rush of pleasure, and they need to keep taking stimulants to prevent painful and distressing withdrawal symptoms.

Individuals who suffer from stimulant addiction experience powerful cravings for the drug they are using and will struggle to cut back or stop using that drug, even if their use is affecting their ability to function on a daily basis. If left untreated, stimulant addiction might also affect their relationships with the people closest to them.

If you or someone you care about is suffering from stimulant addiction, the caring and compassionate staff at Bradford Recovery Center in Millerton, Pennsylvania, can create a treatment plan that is perfect for you. We help adults age 18 and older to experience long-term healing from stimulant addiction using the latest evidence-based treatment and therapeutic interventions, with a focus on healing the whole person — mind, body, and spirit.

Why Consider Treatment at Bradford

Why consider getting stimulant addiction treatment at Bradford Recovery Center in Millerton, PA

If left untreated, stimulant addiction can have highly dangerous effects. Although some people believe that stimulants make them feel like they can perform simple tasks more quickly in the short term, the reality is that stimulants can cause individuals to feel irritable, paranoid, nauseated, and restless. Stimulants can also cause sweating, muscle tremors, irregular heartbeat, and increased blood pressure.

Depending on how an individual is taking stimulants, they also run the risk of frequent nosebleeds, losing their sense of smell, developing respiratory infections, severe bowel decay, vein scarring or collapse, or developing needle-borne illnesses such as HIV or hepatitis C. Because some stimulants significantly decrease appetite, individuals who suffer from stimulant addiction are also at an increased risk for experiencing malnutrition.

The longer an individual lives with a stimulant addiction without seeking treatment, the more likely they are to engage in violent behaviors aimed at obtaining stimulants. Without treatment, individuals who suffer from stimulant addiction often have frequent encounters with the law and, sometimes, incarceration. In the most severe cases, stimulant addiction can lead to sudden death from cardiac arrest or respiratory failure.

Continuing Care After Residential Treatment

Continuing care options for stimulant addiction treatment at Bradford Recovery Center in Millerton, PA

Seeking residential addiction treatment at Bradford Recovery Center in Millerton, Pennsylvania, can be an important first step in your recovery from stimulant addiction. But we understand that your stay at our addiction treatment center is only one chapter in your recovery journey. We want to make sure you feel as prepared as possible to transition out of residential treatment, which is why we provide you with a detailed discharge plan to set you up for continued success.

We start your discharge planning the very first week you are in residential treatment because we want your continuing care plan to be as comprehensive as possible. Like with all treatment services we offer, we fully personalize your discharge plan to your specific strengths, challenges, needs, and goals to best support your transition out of our care. A member of our staff will stay in frequent contact with you for up to 90 days after you leave residential treatment to see if you need any additional support.

Depending on your needs, your continuing care plan might include educational elements such as understanding cravings and triggers, developing support systems, conflict resolution, and relapse prevention. We also work with many community referral sources, so we can help you transition to the appropriate level of care, whether that’s extended care, a recovery house, a medication-assisted treatment (MAT) program, an intensive outpatient program (IOP), outpatient mental health services, a partial hospitalization program (PHP), a dentist, an eye doctor, county assistance, or a family therapist.

One of the strongest aspects of our continuing care offerings is our alumni network, which meets multiple times a year at various events such as bowling, hiking, and family picnics. We strongly encourage you to participate in these events to continue to build your support system after you have left residential treatment with us.
