Amphetamine Addiction Treatment

Amphetamine addiction is much more common than many people may think. Because these drugs are so often used across all age groups, it can be difficult to tell when that use crosses the line into abuse and addiction. Treatment and recovery from amphetamines can be a difficult process.

At The Summit Wellness Group, we use an integrated treatment approach with every available tool to help our clients out of the depths of addiction and into a new life free from amphetamines.

Amphetamine Addiction Treatment

    Our Approach to Amphetamine Addiction

    If used as intended through a prescription, amphetamines are relatively harmless. It’s only because they have become so accessible that people tend to abuse them. Many don’t think they can become addicted, but these stimulants can lead to increased dependence and tolerance as they alter the chemical structure of the brain. Because they are so addictive when abused, it can be hard to stop. Uncomfortable withdrawal symptoms can cause a person to relapse before they are even able to reach out for help.

    Our integrated approach to treatment provides clients with relief and support during the development of new, healthy habits and coping skills. At The Summit Wellness Group, we leverage the most effective therapies and treatment methods through a combination of medication, psychiatric care, clinical therapy, and holistic techniques. While effective on their own, these treatment methods can be powerful together. Our staff of highly trained nurses, psychiatrists, clinical therapists, and holistic therapy practitioners work together to provide a healing environment for those recovering from amphetamine addiction.

    Treatment Process

    While the treatment programs at The Summit Wellness Group are all tailored to the individual needs of our clients, the three main steps include:

    Step #1 – Safe Detox and Withdrawal Medication Management

    Though amphetamine withdrawal does not produce any direct, physical symptoms, it can still be a psychologically difficult experience. Some people may require medical help. We partner with the best detox centers in the region to make sure you undergo that process in a safe and comfortable setting. Once detox is complete, we can begin proper treatment and recovery at one of our locations.

    Withdrawal symptoms from amphetamines can be psychologically distressing. There are no current medications that are FDA-approved for treating amphetamine withdrawal. That being said, there are medications that can help relieve some of the psychological discomforts. These medications will be used to treat individual symptoms as they arise:

    • Antidepressants
    • Atypical Antidepressants
    • Non-Benzodiazepine Anti-Anxiety Medications
    • Sleep Aids

    Step #2 – Individualized Therapy Plans

    Medications may only provide minimal relief from the symptoms of amphetamine withdrawal. Therapy and adherence to treatment are some of the most reliable routes to recovery. With this in mind, The Summit Wellness Group provides an assortment of integrative therapies that can help someone find relief and begin building a new life free from amphetamines. Some of the therapies we offer are:

    • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
    • Group Therapy
    • Motivational Interviewing
    • Trauma-Informed Care

    We also strive to address co-occurring mental health issues that are often found alongside addiction. We do this through our different therapies as well as psychiatric treatment. This is critical in the treatment of amphetamine addiction because if we address one condition without the others, the rate of relapse increases.

    Step #3 – After Care

    The commitment we make to our clients does not end at the completion of their treatment program. Our aftercare program lasts as long as is necessary to make sure that our clients have the support and care they need to continue building a solid foundation in recovery. We also have many close ties to recovery fellowships in the Atlanta area and can leverage these ties to help connect our clients with a fellowship of their choice. This could mean helping them find a sponsor or a good meeting near their home. The road to recovery can be long, but we are determined to walk this path alongside our clients, doing all that we can to encourage, support, and guide them along the way.
