How is Ritalin/Adderall Abuse Treated?
The appropriate treatment for Ritalin or Adderall abuse depends on the severity of the problem and the individual’s needs. Some people respond better than others to certain treatment approaches, and the best treatment programs are tailored to the individual’s circumstances.
Some commonly used approaches include:
- Inpatient rehabilitation. Residential treatment programs attempt to provide an environment in which the patient can recover without being tempted to use the drug.
- Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT). This type of talk therapy helps drug users to recognize the triggers that prompt their drug use. CBT also focuses on developing strategies and techniques for dealing with those triggers when they occur.
- Group counseling and 12-Step programs. These programs give the patient the encouragement and support of people who are experiencing similar struggles with substance abuse.
