overcome adderall addiction ?

Can my daughter ever recover from a very powerful adderall drug addiction ? She wants help but I am clueless. It has been an 8 year addiction already. It has been like watching her commit  suicide very slowly. Also killing the entire family not her alone !I love her so much but feel helpless and powerless ! Please give me advice ! Thanks

It's not about the Adderall.

Any addict can learn to live without the use of drugs and learn a new and better way of life.

Yes, she can recover from this addiction.  People do it everyday.  She has taken the first step already.... by realizing she has a problem and being willing to seek help.  Has she ever looked into NA?  You or she could call your local mental health office and get some guidance.  This is a great site to come for support and education from caring, understanding and non judgemental people.  Please realize there are many of us here dealing/ or have dealt with, the same issue.   I especially appreciate our addicts who are willing to give us open, honest answers based on their own experiences.  I'm glad you found us...welcome to Ask an Addict.

Perhaps her PCP can help with this. I agree with the NA idea. Wanting to stop is the first and most important step. She is there right?
