Stimulant Detoxification

Stimulants are psychoactive drugs or substances that induce temporary improvement in either mental or physical functions. They are also used to stimulate the brain and nervous system. The medical use of stimulants pertains to the treatment of attention-deficit hyperactivity disorders (ADHD) through the use of medications such as Adderall and Ritalin. Other stimulants may include amphetamines and cocaine.

The chronic use of stimulants can result in physical and psychological dependence causing the user to develop a dependency and tolerance with time, which means a higher quantity would be needed to gain the desired effects. Over time, it causes the victim’s body to have spikes in natural chemicals it produces, and then crashes it as the chemical production is decreased. The abrupt removal of stimulants from regular use can cause:

  • Extreme fatigue
  • Oversleeping
  • Excessive hunger
  • Chills
  • Sweats
  • Jitters
  • Bodily aches and pains
  • Tremors
  • Dehydration
  • Fast pulse
  • Panic attacks
  • Memory issues
  • Impaired cognition
  • Paranoia
  • Mood swings

Stimulant withdrawal is normally uncomfortable, but not life-threatening. Stimulant detoxification is safest and most effective when performed under the medical professionals’ supervision. Medical stimulant detoxification helps to manage withdrawal symptoms, making the whole process more efficient and bearable. Therefore, stimulant consumers going through withdrawal are recommended to seek medical attention for better management and monitoring of its symptoms.

The withdrawal symptoms vary person to person quitting stimulants. The variation is based on a number of factors such as the person’s metabolism and tolerance, as well as their history of use. Normally, symptoms appear within a few hours to a couple of days after the last use of the drug. Most severe symptoms shoot up in about a week, while other psychological symptoms can last for a few weeks, or even months after quitting.

The overall treatment aims to pacify withdrawal symptoms, identify co-occurring disorders, prevent complications and begin addressing abstinence.

Inpatient and Outpatient Stimulant Abuse Treatment

Misuse of potent stimulants could evolve into an addiction and a substance use disorder if stimulant use is unmanaged or mishandled. If you or a loved one has been struggling with stimulant misuse or withdrawal, inpatient or outpatient rehab could help you begin the necessary steps toward recovery. 

At Diamond House Detox, we provide several treatment programs to help clients receive the care, support and help needed to overcome stimulant misuse and withdrawal. Residential treatment provides a safe environment to work toward recovery in via individual and group therapy. We also offer inpatient medically assisted detox, where staff with medical experience monitor your detoxification.

Our outpatient stimulant abuse treatment programs include:

Outpatient Detox

Clients receive support through the withdrawal and recovery processes while still living at home. Our outpatient detox program includes science-based intervention and rehabilitative techniques to help you through stimulant detox. You’ll still have flexibility with the events and people in your everyday life.

Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP)

Our IOP provides a safe and structured environment for clients working through their stimulant substance use disorder. Depending on their schedules, clients will attend treatment sessions at the facility three to four times a week for a few hours during the day or evening. IOP allows clients to maintain independence while receiving the needed recovery support and assistance.

Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP)

PHP may be the optimum solution for clients who would benefit from more intensive treatment without staying overnight. PHP involves clients going to the treatment facility every weekday and experiencing the services residential clients get. Unlike residential clients, PHP clients return home every night.

Sober Living Option

Once clients complete inpatient treatment, they may have the option to stay in a sober living community to help them transition into regular life again. Sober living housing helps those in the recovery stage maintain their sobriety. In a sober living home, all occupants must follow the rules, such as abstaining from alcohol and substances, agreeing to random drug tests and attending group meetings.
