Stimulant Addiction in the United States
Stimulants are a class of drugs whose primary effect is to increase the body’s natural functions by affecting the nervous system. When used legally, they are prescribed by doctors to help with medical conditions like ADHD and severe depression. They come in many different forms and are popular street drugs for the noticeable impacts that they have on a person’s body, which will impact both energy levels and moods. Stimulant drugs tend to be highly addictive and depending on the variant and how it is used, may cause an addiction after only a single use. Repeated use greatly increases the chances of an addiction forming.
If left untreated, an addiction to stimulants can cause great damage to one’s life, relationships and overall well-being. If you or someone you know is suffering from a substance use disorder, it is imperative to seek help from experienced professionals today.
