What Do Stimulants Do?
Caffeine is the most commonly used stimulant in the world. It is capable of making people feel energized and awake. It can also sharpen focus and concentration in some users.
Addiction to caffeine is common, yet it is not necessarily problematic because it is such a mild stimulant. The people who come to Atlanta Treatment LLC for stimulant addiction treatments are those who have become to more dangerous forms of stimulants.
Addictive narcotics that are classified as stimulants include:
Although, stimulant addictions do not commonly begin with a “street-level” narcotic like cocaine. Instead, people can be prescribed a stimulant like Ritalin due to its potential to curb the most prominent symptoms of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). What begins as a useful prescription can quickly degrade into a dangerous addiction.
Signs of Stimulant Addiction
Because stimulants can make the user feel “good,” it can be extremely difficult for someone who has become dependent on them to put them down and to seek sobriety. In many cases, extensive side effects and symptoms of their stimulant abuse must first occur before they accept that something is wrong.
People who are addicted to stimulants might exhibit the following warning signs:
- Dramatic, unplanned weight loss
- Hair loss
- Constant sweating or fever
- Impulsive, dangerous behavior
- Compulsions to steal to get more doses
- Delusions or hallucinations
- Racing, unstoppable thoughts
- Anxiety and/or depression
Prolonged Stimulant Abuse is Dangerous
The heightened feelings of energy or euphoria after taking a dose of a stimulant can only last so long. The more a stimulant is abused, lasting, dangerous side effects become more likely. Many consequences of long-term stimulant abuse can be life-threatening, so taking action to stop an addiction cannot be postponed.
Long-term side effects of stimulant addiction can include:
- Full-body seizures
- Gastrointestinal damage
- Liver, lung, or heart disease
