How We Can Help

Our Programs


Recovery is a process - not an outcome - and each individual’s recovery is different. Whether you you are looking to stop the cycle of using, continue to relapse despite your best efforts, or just curious about recovery, recovery is what it means to move forward.


There are three principal medications that are used to treat opiate dependence: buprenorphine (Suboxone), methadone, and naltrexone (Vivitrol). While we do not provide methadone, we do offer treatment with all other medications to treat opiate addiction. There are also a range of medications that help with other addictions, such as alcohol and benzodiazepines.

Signs of Adderall Addiction

According to the American Psychiatric Association’s Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-5), stimulant use disorder is characterized by a pattern of drug misuse that causes an impairment in daily functioning. Additionally, at least two other symptoms would occur within the same year:

  • Using Adderall in larger doses or for an extended period than intended.
  • Persistent Adderall use despite thoughts of ending use.
  • Spending excessive time trying to obtain, use, or recover from Adderall use.
  • Adderall use resulting in being unable to meet obligations at school, home, or work.
  • Continued drug use despite negative effects on relationships.
  • Self-isolation or a sudden disinterest in social activities or hobbies.
  • Continued Adderall use despite the awareness of likely physical or psychological problems (this doesn’t apply if the stimulant is used as prescribed by a physician).
  • Tolerance, or a need for increased amounts of Adderall to achieve the desired effect, or a markedly diminished effect with continued use of the same amount (this criterion doesn’t apply if the stimulant is used as prescribed by a physician).
  • Experiencing withdrawal symptoms or using the substance to relieve or avoid withdrawal symptoms (this doesn’t apply if the stimulant is used as prescribed by a physician).

Distinguishing Adderall Addiction from Adderall Dependence

According to a research report from the National Institute on Drug Abuse, regular use of a drug can lead to physiological dependence due to the body’s adaptation. When someone is dependent on a drug, reducing the dosage or discontinuing use can result in withdrawal symptoms.

In contrast, addiction, while potentially involving dependence, encompasses compulsive drug-seeking behavior that significantly impairs a person’s normal daily functioning, whether at work, school, or home. Dependence often coincides with tolerance, wherein higher doses of the drug are required to achieve the same previous effects.

Stopping using feels great. However, moving away from drug use you have used every day for months or years is a big change.

Are There Non-Stimulant Adderall Alternatives?

Non-stimulant ADHD medications offer an alternative to stimulant medications and can be beneficial for individuals who either do not respond well to stimulants or experience intolerable side effects. Here are some potential benefits of non-stimulant ADHD medications:

  • Fewer Side Effects: Non-stimulant ADHD medications generally have a different and more mild set of side effects compared to stimulant medications.
  • Longer-Lasting Effects: While stimulant medications often have a relatively short duration of action, some non-stimulant medications provide extended relief, allowing for once-daily dosing.
  • Reduced Risk of Abuse: Non-stimulant medications are not associated with the same risk of abuse or dependence as stimulant medications, making them better alternatives for individuals with a history of substance abuse or those at risk for developing substance use disorders.
  • Treatment for Comorbid Conditions: Non-stimulant medications may be beneficial for individuals with ADHD who have co-occurring conditions, such as anxiety disorders, where stimulants might exaggerate symptoms.
  • Suitable for Certain Populations: Non-stimulant ADHD medications may be safer for older patients, those with cardiovascular issues, or in any other cases where stimulant medications might pose additional risks.

It’s important to note that individual responses to medications can vary, and the choice between stimulant and non-stimulant medications is often made based on factors such as the individual’s medical history, potential side effects, and the presence of comorbid conditions. Consulting the doctors at SequoiaMD is crucial for determining the most appropriate treatment for a person with ADHD.


As a patient moves into recovery away from an active substance use disorder, we start working to build treatment services and plans that can fit your unique situation.
