Stimulants make up a large class of drugs including legal substances like Adderall, Ritalin, caffeine, and nicotine, and illicit drugs such as methamphetamine and cocaine. All of these substances can create a boost of energy, increased concentration and focus, and a brief euphoric state.
When taken as directed by the prescribing physician, prescription stimulants can be used safely and can help improve your quality of life. But if abused, stimulants can also cause widespread damage to your health. If you find yourself unable to control your stimulant use, Conway Behavioral Health Hospital can help. Our specialized stimulant treatment programming can help you regain your strength, and set the course for a healthy, recovered, and stimulant-free future.

Why consider stimulant addiction treatment at Conway Behavioral Health Hospital
Stimulants impact the pleasure sensors in the brain, and abusing them significantly alters mood and energy levels. So, if you continue to abuse this type of drug and subsequently become addicted, the impact on your physical, mental, and emotional health can be devastating. Soon, tolerance will develop, meaning that you’ll need more stimulants more often in order to achieve the desired effects. These factors make stimulant dependence one of the most challenging forms of addiction to defeat without professional help. But fortunately, with support from a quality treatment program like Conway Behavioral Health Hospital, recovery is possible. Our staff understands the unique challenges associated with stimulant dependence, and we are available to help you begin your journey to a drug-free future today.

Detoxification: If you have stimulants, alcohol, or other substances in your system, you may receive detox services prior to starting the therapeutic aspects of treatment. Our staff will assess your need for detoxification at the time of your admission.
Medical care: Should any medical concerns arise during your time at Conway, we have physicians, licensed practical nurses (LPNs), and registered nurses (RNs) on staff to provide medical services.
Medication management: If you are suffering from symptoms of a mental health disorder in addition to an addiction to stimulants, our staff will assess you to determine whether medication may be beneficial. Patients who are prescribed medication will receive medication management services as needed.
Individual therapy: Individual therapy sessions allow you to process the challenges and successes that you experience while recovering from stimulant addiction. These one-on-one meetings with a therapist occur at least once during your time in inpatient treatment, but you have the option to request additional meetings when needed.
Group therapy: There are a minimum of four group therapy sessions held each day. Skills rehearsal groups, psychoeducation groups, process groups, and recreational groups give you a chance to explore a holistic approach to recovery from stimulant addiction. There are many topics covered in these groups, including:
- Distress tolerance skills
- Substance abuse
- Adapting leisure skills
- Emotional regulation skills
- Medication management
Family therapy: Family support can be extremely beneficial for those in recovery from stimulant addiction. At Conway, licensed therapists and counselors lead family therapy sessions once a week. During this time, you and your loved ones can process how your addiction has impacted the family unit and begin to repair relationships.
Continuing care after inpatient treatment for stimulant addiction
Inpatient treatment for stimulant addiction is meant to be a short-term experience, typically lasting around seven days. This level of care allows for stabilization and alleviation of crises so that patients can move to less intensive programming. Because your time in inpatient care is so minimal, it is important that you have a plan in place for when you’re ready to discharge.
On your first day of programming at Conway Behavioral Health Hospital, your treatment team will begin creating a discharge plan that will serve as a guide for when your time in inpatient care comes to an end. Your treatment team will find resources and continuing care options that will be of greatest benefit to you. Depending on the severity of your symptoms and where you are in your recovery, you may receive a recommendation to participate in one of Conway’s step-down levels of care, partial hospitalization programming (PHP) or intensive outpatient programming (IOP). Your treatment team will also provide you with other resources, which may include referrals to outside treatment providers and information on support groups in your area.
