SJRP’s Amphetamines Detox Center Helps Individuals Manage Withdrawal with Greater Ease  

Amphetamine withdrawal is no pleasant experience to encounter, but with St. John’s Recovery Place (SJRP), the process of detoxification can prove much more manageable. Unfortunately, withdrawal is inherently an uncomfortable but unavoidable process for many people. The procedure involves a sectioned time of drug or alcohol abstinence that the individual must strictly follow. Once this period is completed successfully, with no outside substance use, the process successfully allows a person’s body to rid itself of the influences of drugs or alcohol.   

Once the withdrawal process is complete, the individual can begin to involve themselves in standard inpatient addiction treatment practices. At St. John’s Recovery Place, the amphetamines detox center run by the company issues clients anywhere from two to three weeks to complete the withdrawal process before beginning usually scheduled treatment. The duration of the program depends entirely on the individual and the severity of their case. Some people may work through withdrawal, experiencing only mild symptoms of discomfort; others may need extended detox procedures to help ease their experience and ensure their overall health and safety. 


Regardless of the severity each person experiences, any individual who has misused, abused, formed an addiction, or dependence on drugs such as amphetamines–and other substances–must undergo withdrawal. It is physically impossible for an individual who struggles with addiction not to experience the eliminating process, although some may have a significantly easier withdrawal experience than others. St. John’s Recovery Place recognizes that the withdrawal process can look vastly different for each addiction case. As a result, the amphetamines detox center provides its residents with flexible treatment guidelines to meet their specific needs. Addiction is a complex condition, and the withdrawal process is no different. Healing from an amphetamine addiction is challenging, but with SJRP, recovery is possible. 

Amphetamines, Detox Centers, and SJRP’s Approach to Withdrawal and Medical Detox  

Amphetamines are potent prescription medications utilized by millions of Americans to help manage chronic conditions such as attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and weight loss programs. Yet, even though used for daily self-management by many individuals, the drug holds a high propensity for abuse. Similar to the effects of cocaine, just with a slower onset and longer duration, amphetamine stimulants lure in users with its ability to make them feel confident, powerful, and energetic during their high, or may induce individuals to misuse their medical allotments of the drug for similar reasons or miscommunication/misunderstanding of the medicine’s addicting power.  

Since amphetamines are synthetic drugs, their propensity to affect the central nervous system with critical accuracy is heightened, making their misuse even more dangerous. Amphetamines addictions are easy to develop but not as easy to displace permanently. Withdrawal from amphetamines can prove incredibly challenging, but SJRP’s medical team and detox staff are well prepared to help residents through each phase of the process. Some of the most common amphetamine withdrawal symptoms individuals may encounter include: 

  • Insomnia 
  • Paranoia 
  • Mood swings 
  • Increased anxiety 
  • Depression 
  • Weight fluctuations 
  • Dizziness 
  • Tremors 
  • Fatigue

 Although many withdrawal symptoms may seem manageable for individuals to navigate at home, even the mildest cases can produce dangerous side effects without prior warning. Other more severe withdrawal complications may also occur that would require an individual to receive medical treatment. Detox centers across the country work to support individuals working through withdrawal to access whatever medical services, emergency or not, they may require, thus providing residents with 24/7 supervision and assistance. Quitting amphetamine use cold-turkey or attempting to diminish the use of the drug over time should never be tried at home.

As a professional amphetamine detox center, St. John’s Recovery Place monitors its withdrawal clients for two to three weeks of their initial inpatient treatment. The client has access to 24/7 medical care, emergency treatment, and emotional support during this period. Individuals progressing through withdrawal with more mild symptoms can even begin their therapeutic programs for addiction rehab, while residents who find the detoxification process more challenging can receive structured medical-assistance treatment to aid their journey towards healing.  


St. John’s Recovery Place is a holistic addiction treatment and amphetamine detox center utilizing traditional and alternative therapeutic practices to instill quality rehab procedures into clients’ rehabilitation services. Individuals struggling with amphetamine use can rest easy knowing that SJRP has their back; providing compassionate care also challenges them to continue working towards long-term sobriety.
