Stimulants can be snorted, injected or consumed orally. In the form of either illicit substances or prescription medication, they boost alertness and the cognitive function of the central nervous system.
Cocaine, crack cocaine and crystal meth are among the most notorious illicit stimulants, producing effects similar to those of prescription stimulants. Prescription stimulants were designed as time-release drugs to treat ADHD and narcolepsy, while illicit stimulants induce a short-term, more extreme high.
Amphetamines and methylphenidates are two of the most common prescription stimulants. When abused, they pose critical risks to users’ health.
Nevada boasts a high treatment admission rate for stimulant addiction, especially meth addiction. Stimulants generate a major dopamine spike in the brain, which leads to effects like euphoria, increased energy, appetite loss and alertness. However, stimulant abuse also leads to serious addiction, and it can cause severe damage to the brain and body.
Stimulant withdrawal symptoms are often excruciating. Consequently, we highly recommend that you refrain from attempting to overcome your addiction alone. Anxiety, agitation and depression are just a few of the side effects you’ll experience as you wean yourself off your stimulant habit.
