Adderall is an amphetamine drug often prescribed for attention deficit hyperactivity disorders such as ADHD and narcolepsy. Doctors prescribe Adderall off-label to treat weight loss and improve memory, also energy levels and focus for those who need it. This drug is known to mimic the effects of meth and is a highly addictive stimulant. Due to the enhanced focus and euphoric effects, Adderall abuse is becoming more common, especially among young adults who abuse Adderall.

There are several ways to recognize an Adderall addiction, including mental, physical, and behavioral changes. Despite this, you may be wondering if you need treatment for your Adderall abuse. Here are some common signs that Adderall addiction treatment may be a good idea for you or a loved one:

If not treated, Adderall abuse can lead to lasting health issues.
