Adderall Abuse & Rehab
What is Adderall?
Adderall is the brand name for a compound, psycho stimulant medication which increases the amount of the brain’s dopamine and norepinephrine. It is most commonly prescribed for treating ADHD and narcolepsy – depending on whether it is Adderall IR (instant release), or Adderall XR (extended release). Adderall XR is being prescribed to treat either disorder, but the instant release version is exclusively for ADHD. The drug is characterized as having a significant addiction and dependency potential. Adderall drug rehab admissions have been on the rise in the past years, as the drug is increasingly available and seen as a “safe” alternative to other stimulants by users.
As a result of its powerfully addictive or dependency tendencies, there are many addiction treatment and recovery centers throughout the US that now offer programs to treat Adderall addiction.
Benefits of Adderall Use
Adderall has been documented to help treat:
- Cognitive Performance

- Stomach pain or upset
