Amphetamine Addiction

“I understood, through rehab, things about creating characters. I understood that creating whole people means knowing where we come from, how we can make a mistake and how we overcome things to make ourselves stronger.” – Samuel L. Jackson

What are Amphetamines?

Amphetamines are categorized as stimulants. Stimulants work by using the dopamine reward system of the brain. When Amphetamines are used, the individual’s central nervous system is stimulated and produces a higher level of the neurotransmitter dopamine. The increase of dopamine creates a euphoric feeling and overall sense of wellbeing.

Amphetamine addiction can leave the individual and their families feeling frightened while they are stuck in an endless cycle of bingeing and crashing.

The use of Amphetamines causes different sign effects based on the individual and the amount of time they have been using the substance. It affects four main components of a person: Mood, behavior, physical, and psychological. Below are the most common sign effects known with addiction to amphetamines.

  • Irritability and extreme mood swings.
  • Becoming hostile and aggressive towards others.
  • Irregular heartbeat and blurred vision.
  • Hallucinations.

Equine Therapy

Equine therapy helps the participants learn about themselves and others by participating in physical activities involving horses and processing the thoughts, beliefs, behaviors, and patterns that arise during the experience. The goals of equine therapy include helping people develop skills such as emotional regulation, self-confidence, and responsibility. Horses are known to mirror a client’s behavior or emotions. This allows for clients to maintain a sense of self-awareness, using the horse’s behavior and interactions for feedback and opportunities to check in and process what is happening now.
