Stimulant Addiction Treatment

Schedule An Appointment

Stimulants include substances such as Adderall, amphetamines, methamphetamine, and cocaine (crack and powder).

Stimulant use disorder is a condition where someone develops a habit of using drugs like amphetamines or cocaine in a way that causes problems in their life. People with this disorder might have a hard time controlling or stopping their drug use, even when it causes them harm, and they might experience cravings, withdrawal, and tolerance.

How We Treat Stimulant Use Disorder

We work with each patient to develop an individualized treatment plan that is most likely to reduce cravings, minimize withdrawal symptoms, and help prevent relapse and overdose. Unfortunately, there are no FDA approved medications to treat stimulant use disorder but there are some medications that patients report help them. Services to treat stimulant use disorder can include:
