Although it has not been around very long Concerta is one of the up and coming illegal and addictive drugs. According to the National Library of Medicine, doctors use Concerta to treat Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder or ADHD and some sleep disorders such as narcolepsy. Unfortunately, it is also highly addictive.

Concerta addiction is different from Concerta dependency. Some people who have an illness like ADHD are dependent on Concerta. This means that they have to take it for their condition and have to taper off the drug to avoid ill effects.

Why do People take Concerta Illegally?

addicted to Concerta

When taken illegally, it can be easy to become addicted to Concerta.

Some people take Concerta without a prescription or they take more than they should. They do this because Concerta is said to:

  • improve concentration,
  • improve memory,
  • improve performance in athletics,
  • improve performance in school, and
  • help you learn.

Although it does these things for people with difficulty in the areas of attention, memory, and concentration, it does not always work the same way on people who are not suffering from an issue. There are also side effect to taking Concerta. According to Janssen Pharmaceuticals, the manufacturer of Concerta, these side effects are:

  • addiction,
  • aggression,
  • hallucinations,
  • numbness, pain, tingling, or sensitivity in the fingers and toes,
  • abnormal thinking,
  • extreme mood changes,
  • hostility,
  • painful or prolonged erections,
  • weight gain, and
  • abnormal growth.

These are not all the side effects of this drug. Taking more than prescribed increases the chances of these side effects happening.

What are the Signs of Concerta Addition?

People who are addicted to Concerta exhibit certain signs of addiction. These signs are very common in all stimulant addictions. These signs are:

  • nervous or anxious behavior,
  • unusual behavior when they stop taking the drug,
  • attempting to acquire the drug without a prescription,
  • craving Concerta,
  • taking more than prescribed or taking it too frequently, and
  • taking it for reasons other than those prescribed.

All of these are signs that you or your loved one is suffering from an addiction to Concerta.

Who Needs Concerta Rehab?

Although anyone with a Concerta addiction can go to rehab for it, there are people who need a rehab to stop taking it. These people are those who:

  • have tried to quit and failed multiple times,
  • have overdosed on Concerta,
  • have a constant craving for the drug,
  • are experiencing strange behavior while on or after stopping Concerta,
  • have friends and family who are questioning their use of Concerta and have brought up addiction,
  • are taking Concerta without a prescription, and
  • who find themselves doing things they ordinarily would not to get or while on Concerta.

These are all signs that using the drug has gone too far and it is time to do something about the addiction. There are reports of people who abuse Concerta doing things that destroy their lives because of their use. Do not wait until it is too late to get help.

Inpatient vs. Outpatient Rehab Centers

There are both inpatient and outpatient luxury rehab centers for Concerta abuse. Although the primary services are similar, the way that treatment happens is very different.

  • Inpatient Luxury Rehab – this type of rehab is a residential rehab. This means that you live at the facility while they treat your addiction.

o They offer:

  • meals,
  • living quarters,
  • recreation,
  • individual counseling,
  • group counseling,
  • medication management,
  • medical care, and
  • life skills training.

  • you are around people who understand what you are going through all the time,
  • some people do well in a closed restrictive environment, and

  • you are closer to your triggers before you know how to deal with them properly,
  • sometimes a home environment is stressful which can cause a relapse,
  • those with a severe addiction will not do as well in outpatient rehab, and
  • you have little peer support.

Although there are some differences both types of rehabs work well for Concerta addiction. Your treatment choice should depend on your level of addiction and individual needs.

What is Different about Luxury Rehab?

Luxury rehab centers often focus on treating the person as well as the addiction. They also offer a variety of amenities such as:

  • private rooms,
  • luxury bedding,
  • private bathrooms,
  • gourmet chefs,
  • wait staff,
  • holistic medicine,
  • gyms,
  • pools and aquatics,
  • personal trainers,
  • herbal medicine and alternative treatments, and
  • business and personal services.

Each rehab is different in the services they offer. It is important to speak with the rehab to find out if they offer the services you want before entering the rehab. Rehabs often have their services listed so that you can see everything that they offer when you go to your intake appointment.

What Does Concerta Addiction Treatment Cost?

The cost of luxury rehab depends on the type of rehab. Inpatient rehabs often charge a flat fee for treatment while outpatient rehabs are more likely to charge per service provided. Luxury rehabs can cost anywhere from a few hundred to hundreds of thousands of dollars depending on the amenities and other options their service has.

Fortunately, more and more insurance programs cover the cost of rehab. Some insurance plans cover the entire cost of rehab while others only cover a portion of it. Usually the amount they cover is percentage based. They also might cover the cause of the addiction even if they do not cover the addiction treatment itself.

There are also government aid programs that might cover all or part of the cost of rehab. These programs often cover the treatment itself but not the amenities that a luxury rehab offers.

Most rehabs have financial counselors on staff, which can help you sort through the paperwork or help to work out a payment plan. The rehab you are considering might even offer a discount or sliding scale payment option.

What Can Be Treated?

Almost all addictions can be treated at luxury rehab centers. Most of them treat the most common addictions such as:

  • cocaine,
  • crack,
  • stimulants such as Ritalin or Concerta,
  • methamphetamine,
  • amphetamine,
  • club drug,
  • sex,
  • gambling,
  • food, and
  • shopping.

They also treat addiction related illnesses such as the cause of the addiction and the problems that the addiction might cause.
