Recognizing the Signs of Addiction
Many people who have been using amphetamines for a long time may not even realize how addicted they are to this type of medication. If you think that you may be addicted to amphetamines, then you may want to speak with a Northern Illinois Treatment Center specialist.
Some of the most common signs of addiction include:
- Physical symptoms such as nausea, headaches, or dizziness
- Psychological symptoms such as anxiety, jitteriness, or insomnia
- Increasing your dosage every chance you get
- Multiple attempts to stop, but you get back on it
- Looking for various resources (including illegal) to get the drug
- Ignoring your symptoms or denying that they exist
It is essential to recognize how dangerous amphetamines can be. Abuse can lead to increased heart rate or blood pressure, digestive problems, severe mood swings, aggression, anxiety, hallucinations, or an inability to perform your daily task or work responsibilities. If you suffer from any physical symptoms of abuse or an overdose, you should seek medical attention immediately. Do not delay.

Dual Diagnosis: Understanding Your Addiction
If you have a mental health issue such as anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder, or post-traumatic stress disorder, the symptoms of your mental health issue may be triggering your addiction. Likewise, your addiction may be aggravating the symptoms of your disorder. If left untreated, this symbiotic relationship can go on for years.
An amphetamine addiction rehab center in Northern IL employs dual diagnosis as a means to identify the connection between your disorder and your addiction. We can then provide a treatment plan that addresses each. Your treatment for your addiction may not be the same for your disorder. This allows us to target each individually.
