Go to any college campus and ask a student if he (or she) knows anyone who uses Adderall. It is very unlikely that you will find someone who will say no. Maybe they don’t use it themselves, but they will know others who do. A new report finds that Adderall remains a popular study drug for students.
They use it to stay alert when cramming for an exam or when finishing a paper that may be due the next day. But repeated abuse of this drug can be addictive, as Adderall is made of a mix of different forms of amphetamine. And it has been known for decades that amphetamine is highly addictive.
At one time, the people who took amphetamines were called “speed freaks.” Now they may be students who excel because of an artificially-increased ability to focus for long hours. The downside is, of course, the possibility of addiction to Adderall. But there is a further risk when Adderall remains a popular study drug for students. And that is that those students may continue to rely on pills to moderate their moods. They may seek the services of a cooperative doctor and tell him what he needs to hear to prescribe drugs like Adderall, painkillers like Vicodin or mood changers like Valium or Xanax. As all of these drugs are addictive, anyone who relies on these drugs may find themselves trapped in addiction when that was far from their thoughts when they started out.
As tolerance to these drugs build, the next step is increasing the dosages. The person begins to acquire and consume more of these drugs and soon this begins to control the focus of his (or her) entire life. This is when Narconon services are needed to help a person escape from this trap.
Narconon Services Help Rescue Thousands Of People A Year
Around the world, there are fifty Narconon centers that provide the healing, holistic Narconon drug rehabilitation program. This is a long-term program that utilizes no drugs in the treatment of addiction, as so many other programs do. Each person is helped to detoxify the residues of past drug use, a proven aid to reducing cravings, and learn how to communicate clearly and solve life’s problems again. Without restoring skills like these and several others, a person may struggle daily to resist temptation. A challenge or a problem may tempt him to return to drug abuse unless he has learned how to address problems and overcome them.
Narconon services are unique in their thoroughness and simplicity. The Way to Happiness Course, for example, freshens a person’s grasp on a personal moral code that will guide him through the kinds of decisions that keep one on a drug-free path. With this kind of help, seven out of ten graduates of the Narconon drug rehabilitation program maintain their sobriety once they get home. This is one of the best success rates in the field of drug rehabilitation.
Sobriety Is Achievable
Other rehabs seek to keep a person in compliance with a treatment program by continually medicating him with methadone, buprenorphine or anti-anxiety drugs like Xanax. But the person treated in this way does not get the chance to see what it is like to be sober again. He or she is still chained to a drug habit. When withdrawal can be made tolerable, when life skills can be learned again, when morals and personal integrity can be restored, there is every reason to reach out toward sobriety and no reason to think that one must remain addicted.
