Detoxing from Amphetamines
Amphetamine withdrawal can be dangerous without medical supervision. Regardless of length or severity of use, it is always recommended that amphetamine users seek medical detox for a successful first step in the recovery process. Amphetamine withdrawal can present a wide range of symptoms including:
- Cardiac Arrest
- Cardiac Arrhythmia
- Severe Depression
For some, the onset of such symptoms make detoxification the most difficult process in rehabilitation. Under medical supervision, however, these symptoms can be quickly treated and neutralized. Less severe symptoms like excessive hunger, stomach pains, dehydration, light and sound hypersensitivity, lack of coordination, and anxiety can also be easily treated through tempered bed rest, relaxation exercises, personalized nutrition plans, and psychological mediation. Though the physical process of detoxification normally takes three to five days, we prepare our clients for the next several months it may take for the brain and central nervous system to fully recover from amphetamine abuse.
