Adderall addiction affects individuals across many age groups but is especially common among young adults. Since the drug is primarily prescribed to treat ADHD, it’s often abused by individuals trying to gain an edge during study sessions, intense periods of work, or even while gaming. Sophros Recovery offers Adderall addiction treatment at our center in Tampa, FL.

Our substance abuse treatment program is based on four major components: appropriate medication-assisted treatment (MAT), therapy, case management, and aftercare support. We offer compassionate, comprehensive support so that our clients can achieve lasting recovery. Call 813.592.7053 to get started.


When someone abuses Adderall, they take serious risks with their health. The prescription stimulant can cause several short- and long-term side effects.

Short-Term Side Effects

Even when a prescription is followed, Adderall can have adverse effects. Abusing the drug may make these side effects worse or may cause more severe side effects.

  • Loss of appetite
  • Dry mouth
  • Stomach pain
  • Dizziness
  • Headache
  • Trouble sleeping
  • Weight loss
  • High blood pressure
  • Changes in sex drive

Over time, continued Adderall abuse can lead to more serious long-term side effects.

Long-Term Consequences

Addiction and withdrawal symptoms are the primary long-term effects of Adderall abuse. Individuals who are addicted may struggle to stop using the drug, even when they want to.

Withdrawal symptoms occur when someone who has been using Adderall regularly stops taking it. These symptoms can include:

  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Fatigue
  • Mood swings
  • Insomnia
  • Cravings for the drug

Adderall addiction rehab at Sophros Recovery Tampoa offers a supportive and comprehensive approach to help individuals overcome their addiction and achieve lasting recovery.

Why Do People Abuse Adderall?

Adderall is an amphetamine medication that can increase focus, energy, and motivation. This makes it appealing to students and professionals looking for an extra boost in their productivity. However, Adderall also has a high potential for abuse and addiction due to its stimulating effects.

Individuals may abuse Adderall because they believe it will help them perform better academically or professionally. They may also use it as a recreational drug to experience a temporary high. Adderall does not work the same for people using it off-label without the supervision of a doctor, and it can have serious consequences on their health.
