How do you get addicted?
Desoxyn is the generic form of methamphetamine hydrochloride, a potent central nervous system (CNS) stimulant. Medically, it is prescribed for the treatment of three conditions:
- Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)
- Exogenous obesity or obesity due to overeating (on a short-term basis only)
However, people often abuse Desoxyn orally by increasing their dosage in order to maintain euphoric effects, or inject, smoke, or snort it recreationally to get high. Chronic or daily abuse can lead to tolerance and dependence in as little as two weeks. Habitual use becomes addiction when you begin to crave the drug and cannot quit taking it..despite negative consequences to your work, home, school, or health. It can happen quickly or slowly. The main signs of addiction are:
- Loss of CONTROL of use
- CRAVING or COMPULSION to use
- CONTINUED use despite negative CONSEQUENCES

Is Desoxyn Addictive?
Desoxyn contains the active ingredient methamphetamine hydrochloride, a Schedule II Controlled Substance. This means that it carries a high risk of abuse, tolerance and dependence. What are the differences between these terms?
ABUSE is any use of the drug other than prescribed. Mixing Desoxyn with other substances or taking it without a doctor’s prescription is also considered abuse and can easily lead to addiction.
TOLERANCE occurs after repeated use, when you start to require more of the drug to feel the same enjoyable experiences as in the beginning.
DEPENDENCE is a physical state of chemical adaptation that leads to withdrawal whenever you try to take less Desoxyn or stop using completely.
ADDICTION to Desoxyn is defined as a chronic disease characterized by a compulsive drug seeking behavior despite awareness of negative and dangerous consequences.
But, how can you know when your “harmless” recreational use has turned into a dangerous and progressing habit? You might be at risk of Desoxyn addiction when:
- Your close friends and family complain that you are aggressive, moody, irritable, argumentative, and hard to get along with.
- You develop symptoms of withdrawal such as depression or fatigue when you try to quit Desoxyn.
- You display obsessive or paranoid behavior, including picking at hair or skin.
- You experience reduced appetite and start losing a lot of weight.
- You feel panic whenever you run out of Desoxyn and obsess over obtaining it in any way possible (doctor shopping, stealing, buying it on the internet)
- You feel unable to meet deadlines and keep up with your peers at work/school without using Desoxyn.
- You have changes in sleeping patterns and experience long bouts of wakefulness or sleep.
- You try to cut back or quit Desoxyn but never succeed.
Do you recognize two or more of these signs of Desoxyn addiction in yourself or a loved one? When you feel like your life has been thrown off course…TAKE HOPE! Recovery can get you back on track. Call our 24-hour hotline at 1-877-959-0076 for more information about your treatment options.
Safely Breaking Free From Desoxyn Addiction
The best and safest way to quit Desoxyn is to find an addiction treatment program customized to your needs.
Q: Why do I need individualized Desoxyn treatment?
A: Because one-size-fits all treatment approaches do not work for everyone.
Your treatment needs and goals are not the same as the next person’s. An addiction treatment program should educate, support, and encourage you in all aspects of your health. But the root cause of addiction is individual to everyone and affects us in different spiritual, mental, and physical ways. THIS is why a customized program is highly important.
If you’re ready make a decision to take your life back, Call 1-877-959-0076 NOW. We’ll get you in touch with addiction recovery specialists who will help you find the best treatment option for you.
Basic Choices in Treatment
Here are some of the basic choices available when seeking help for addiction.
1. Inpatient vs. Outpatient
Inpatient treatment rehabs are structured and residential facilities that provide care for you 24-7. You’ll sleep at the facility and benefit from a very structured day. Inpatient rehab is often recommended if you have high amounts of stress and/or triggers in your home environment. It’s also helpful for those with little to no recovery support or for cases of severe dependence. Finally, if you have a history of chronic substance abuse and previous unsuccessful treatment attempts…inpatient is probably best for you.
Outpatient treatment centers allow you to attend group therapy sessions and lectures on Desoxyn abuse, addiction, and recovery while taking care of other day-to-day obligations at work, home, or school. If you choose to receive treatment in an outpatient program, it’s important that you have a strong support system at home to help ensure your recovery. If you, however, find it hard to avoid triggers and have an easy access to drugs at home or in your community…inpatient rehab treatment would be the recommended choice.
2. Programs Duration Choices
Treatment programs can last 30, 60, 90 days or go beyond 3 months. The minimum amount of time you are required to spend in addiction treatment is 30 days, which is just enough to detox, get stabilized, and do some therapy. However, 60 and 90 day programs offer significantly higher success rates as they allow more time for physical and psychological stabilization, therapy, and education.
3. Therapies and Amenities Included.
Each treatment program offers a mix of therapies and amenities that when applied together aim to maximize your chances of successful recovery and long-lasting sobriety. Addiction programs usually offer a combination of counseling, exercise, nutrition, support services, and educational sessions. Other amenities can include:
Natural setting and planned outings

What Are the Stages of Treatment?
Before you enter treatment, you need to acknowledge that you have a problem with Desoxyn that you cannot solve on your own. This is truly the hardest thing to do when seeking help. Admitting that you cannot do it alone is humbling and can feel shameful. But know this: Addiction is a medical condition. It is treated medically, and there is scientific evidence that shows a combination of medications and psychotherapy are most effective in achieving long term sobriety!
So, what can you expect once you’ve started the process of entering treatment?
STEP #1: Intake evaluation and assessment – At the beginning of your rehabilitation program, you will complete a comprehensive intake evaluation and assessment with clinical staff. They will interview you, gather information about your substance use and health history, and complete a medical and psychological evaluation. You may be required to submit urine or blood samples to assess levels of drugs in your system. Then, your program will be tailor-made based on these findings.
STEP #2: Detoxification – Detoxification is best completed in a supportive and supervised environment at a medical detox clinic. Attempting to detox from Desoxyn at home is not safe due to the risk of suicide associated with depression and violence. Relapse is also a temptation when detox symptoms become too uncomfortable. At a detox clinic, medical staff focus on stabilizing your acute and immediate medical and psychiatric condition, to ensure you safety, and to set you up for ongoing addiction treatment.
STEP #3: Therapy – After detox has been completed, you will be ready for counseling and therapy. During this stage you will uncover the root causes of your addiction and learn new behaviors that don’t involve Desoxyn use. Therapies are generally talk therapy which are held in individual or group sessions. The more honest you are during therapy, the most you’ll get out of the experience.
The second primary treatment used to address addiction is Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT). It is often used in combination with behavioral therapy, psychotherapy, counseling, and other forms of therapy to increase your likelihood of walking out of rehab with healthy habits and a sober lifestyle.
STEP #4: Aftercare programs – Support and guidance is often needed even after the treatment program is over. Aftercare and relapse prevention is a crucial step of the recovery process. These programs can extend into the moths and years after you leave rehab and have been proven successful at increasing chances of long-term rehab success.

What About Desoxyn Withdrawal?
Desoxyn withdrawal can be life-threatening…but so can continued use or abuse of the drug. We understand how scary it is to think of attempting another withdrawal process accompanied by harsh symptoms. But take hope that medically supervised detox significantly increases the chances for success. In fact, medical staff can address symptoms as they occur. Medical detox staff offer both medications and emotional support for symptoms such as:
- agitation and irritability
- muscle aches
- paranoia and hallucinations
- strong cravings for more Desoxyn
- suicidal ideation
- violent attacks
Anyone would be afraid to go down that road again…BUT Desoxyn withdrawal doesn’t have to be uncomfortable and risky. In order to prevent or manage withdrawal symptoms, you can enter a detox facility where you will be monitored and looked after by detox specialists and doctors. Desoxyn detox centers provide:
- A structured, safe, and drug-free environment
- Greater chances at getting off Desoxyn and staying off it permanently
- Medical supervision and assistance day-and-night
- Medication (typically antidepressants) to help relieve withdrawal symptoms
With the right support of family, friends and addiction treatment specialists, you can successfully stop using Desoxyn. Call 1-877-959-0076 if you have questions about Desoxyn detox and withdrawal.
What about my Mental Health?
Addiction and mental health disorders can be a two way street. Almost every major mental disorder carries a risk of substance abuse. However, addiction to psychoactive substances such as Desoxyn can change the way your brain functions, thus leading to a mental health issue. In fact, it is often difficult to tell whether the substance use disorder preceded or is secondary to the mental disorder.
Still, one of the most common underlying reasons why people turn to Desoxyn is because they are trying to self-medicat issues such as:
Lack of self-esteem
Workaholic and driven behaviors
When your Desoxyn addiction is associated with, aggravating or causing mental health problems, then it is a part of a dual diagnosis and an appropriate treatment program is required. If you are looking for ways to successfully manage both conditions CALL 1-877-959-0076 for a FREE and confidential referral to the type of treatment you need.
The good news is that with the right course of treatment, you can manage both conditions successfully. Here are some therapies that may apply to you:
Medication – When you check into a dual-diagnosis recovery center, doctors will often use medication in conjunction with therapy.
Dialectic Behavioral Therapy (DBT) – Can help you reduce any self-harming behaviors that often accompany mental health conditions and substance use disorders.
Integrated Group Therapy – Is designed to treats the symptoms of both conditions, the substance use disorders and mental health illnesses, all at once.
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) – Works to minimize problematic or negative beliefs and behaviors and replace them with healthier patterns of thinking and behavior.
Individual Therapy – This type of therapy treats behaviors related to substance abuse and/or particular behavioral or mental health problems.
5 Ways to Help a Loved one with Desoxyn Addiction
1. ACT FAST – If you suspect that a loved one’s Desoxyn use has become less therapeutic and more recreational, you should not wait for the condition to worsen. The sooner you seek professional help, the higher the chances of your loved one to achieve long-term sobriety.
For more help CALL US NOW 1-877-959-0076 to assess and evaluate a loved one’s problem. When you are seeking professional help for a loved one, keep the following questions in mind.
- Which substance/drug does the person abuse?
- What other drugs or alcohol do you think they’re using?
- How do they abuse Desoxyn (orally, snorting, smoking, injecting)?
- How long do you suspect they have been using?
- How long they’ve been showing signs of addiction?
- How much can they afford to pay for treatment?
- Is insurance an option?
- Could you (and/or other close family members) help them out financially?
- Does the addicted individual suffer from any mental, behavioral, or co-occurring disorders?
2. HAVE AN OPEN AND HONEST TALK – When you consider approaching your loved one and opening a conversation about their worrying Desoxyn use and getting help, you probably start to feel:
…and a whole other range of emotions.
Fortunately, there are many programs available to help you work through these emotions and prepare for your conversation. You can look into the Community Reinforcement and Family Training (CRAFT) therapy model which has been proven to be successful in engaging loved ones into treatment. CRAFT teaches positive ways you can practice self-care, reward non-using behavior in your addicted loved one, and understand what may be triggering their Desoxyn abuse.
3. STAGE AN INTERVENTION – You can also attempt to stage an intervention with the help of a licensed interventionist. It is not appropriate or recommended that you attempt to intervene, or try to provide therapy with someone facing a Desoxyn problem. Instead, seek professional help from a psychotherapist or treatment center.
4. EMPHASIZE PERSONAL CHOICE AND CONTROL – Trying to convince someone to get help through persuasion won’t help…it almost never does. As an alternative, try to discuss the possibility or willingness for the person to discuss their stance regarding substance use with a professional counselor, a therapist, or a peer. This is a much more appropriate and useful place to extend your energy.
In the meantime, you can emphasize personal choice and control by saying things such as:
“It really is up to you to decide to quit for food.”
“No one else can do it for you.”
“I cannot make you go to rehab.”
“We’ll be here to support you when you’re ready for help.”
5. GET SUPPORT GROUP HELP – Additionally, you can encourage peer support for a loved one. Look into 12 Step groups like Al-Anon, Alcoholic Anonymous (AA), Narcotics Anonymous (NA) or Crystal Meth Anonymous (CMA).
Ongoing Treatment and Relapse Prevention
Your addiction recovery is not over when treatment ends. Aftercare provides a continuation of counseling and support once you have successfully completed the rehab program. You will continue to receive this ongoing support in the form of:
- Alumni meetings or activities
- Ongoing counseling
- Sober living arrangements
- Support groups
Furthermore, relapse prevention coaching should also be part of your discharge process. Living out into the ‘real world’ can be full of triggers and temptations, and is very different from residing in a drug rehab program where every hour of the day is scheduled around treatment and devoted to recovery. Relapse prevention techniques for Desoxyn addiction usually involve:
- Learning about the relapse process.
- Training in identifying warning signs and high-risk situations.
- Developing coping skills and stress-management skills.
- Handling pleasant memories of stimulant use.
- Developing a lifestyle that’s protective.
- Coaching in addressing slips.
As you can see, this is a long task list, which is why aftercare help extends into the weeks and months that follow formal treatment. These elements aim to keep you involved with the sobriety community, and prompt you to continue to work on your recovery, so you won’t slip back into destructive habits.
