Orange County's Foremost Drug and Alcohol Rehab Center

Austin, Texas (PressExposure) February 03, 2009 -- In recent years the Federal Government and SouthCoast Recovery have recognized an alarming increase in illegal Adderall abuse and trade across the United States, particularly by teens and college age citizens. Because Adderall is composed of amphetamine and dextroamphetamine, Adderall produces the same addictive effects elicited by illegal street drugs such as crystal meth or cocaine and frequently is abused en lieu of common street drugs because of its low price and accessibility. As a result of these facts and because of SouthCoast’s leading role in the war against prescription drug addiction and abuse, SouthCoast Recovery has decided to create a cutting edge Adderall Addiction Treatment Program to add to the already impressive roster of specialized drug and alcohol treatment programs that it currently has.

The consequences of Adderall abuse can be extremely dangerous. Taking high doses of a stimulant can result in an irregular heartbeat, dangerously high body temperatures, and/or the potential for cardiovascular failure or seizures. Taking high doses of Adderall repeatedly over a short period of time can also lead to hostility or feelings of paranoia in some individuals. Users choosing to go "cold turkey" (withdrawal without using counteractive drugs or symptom-reducing), are more likely to experience the negative effects of withdrawal in a more pronounced manner.

Often drug and alcohol dependency is symptomatic of underlying issues that need to be addressed on an individual basis. At SouthCoast Recovery’s state-of-the-art facilities, the finest clinical and medical physicians work together with skilled practitioners in advanced Eastern holistic therapies for the most comprehensive physical, emotional and spiritual renewal of each person.

SouthCoast Recovery offers seven residential facilities, a clinical therapist, marriage & family therapist, certified drug & alcohol counselors, a medical physician, a licensed acupuncturist with a Masters in Oriental Medicine, a licensed massage therapist, sessions in primordial sound meditation as well as group support in the local 12-step community to helping people battling Adderall addiction to succeed in getting clean and staying clean.

“At SouthCoast Recovery, we believe that recovery from addiction is a transformation in all areas of life.” Adderall Addiction Treatment is now available during 30, 60 and 90-day residential treatment.
