Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT): CBT addresses underlying thoughts that lead to negative behaviors and actions. Clients will work with their therapist to use more positive coping skills to deal with those negative emotions. This can help them stay away from amphetamines, especially if they are not prescribed.
Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR): There is some evidence that EMDR can help improve symptoms of ADHD. This therapy may be worked into a treatment plan.
Yoga or Meditation: Both of these holistic methods can reduce stress, anxiety, and hyperactivity. They ground clients in the present moment and can be used long-term as positive ways of coping with whatever may be causing a person to abuse amphetamines.
Exercise: Any type of fitness or physical activity is naturally going to stimulate receptors in the brain that amphetamines bind to. This can help reduce cravings and make the withdrawal process much easier.
