Learn About Stimulant Addiction Treatment

Important facts about treatment for stimulant addiction at Sierra by the Sea in Newport Beach, CA

Stimulant addiction stems from the continued use of amphetamine-type substances, cocaine, or other stimulants, leading to clinically significant impairment or distress. A stimulant addiction causes the body to become dependent on the use of stimulants in order to function.

Some stimulants are illegal, including methamphetamines (meth), cocaine, and ecstasy. Other stimulants, such as Adderall and Ritalin, are medications prescribed for certain medical conditions. Taking stimulants only as directed by your doctor will not lead to a stimulant addiction, but a person is at an increased risk for developing a stimulant addiction by using any illegal stimulants.

Once an individual begins using stimulants, their brain and body both become used to the chemical changes that stimulants cause in their system. The bodily changes caused by stimulants make individuals feel happier and more energetic. This causes individuals to take increasing amounts of stimulants as the body becomes more dependent on the substance.

The use of stimulants has the potential to cause drastic changes in the life of someone who is coping with stimulant addiction. Stimulant addiction may cause a variety of physical symptoms. If neglected, these symptoms can develop into medical complications. Stimulant addiction may also lead to negative mental effects, such as an inability to focus and memory difficulties. Some behavioral symptoms of stimulant addiction are having trouble fulfilling responsibilities and underperformance at work or in school. Each of these symptoms has a chance to decrease an individual’s quality of life.

By receiving treatment for stimulant addiction at Sierra by the Sea, you or a loved one will have the opportunity to heal from the effects of the addiction they have been struggling with. At our treatment facility in Newport Beach, California, our team uses an individualized approach to care for the whole person rather than just treating the symptoms of addiction.

Why Consider Treatment

Why consider getting treatment for stimulant addiction at Sierra by the Sea in Newport Beach, CA

If you begin taking large quantities of illegal simulants, your body will get used to the chemical changes this substance causes. Your body will then begin to crave this substance and you will develop a dependence on stimulants.

Without treatment, you or your loved one is at an increased risk for experiencing many of the negative outcomes associated with stimulant addiction. An individual with a stimulant addiction may experience negative effects such as homelessness, loss of employment, difficulty in relationships and friendships, and an inability to fulfill financial or familial obligations. A stimulant addiction makes it difficult to complete typical daily tasks such as getting up, getting ready for the day, taking care of your children, going to work or school, and maintaining relationships. You are at risk of continuing to experience these problems if you do not receive treatment for addiction.
