Getting Clean: That lousy feeling and that craving do indicate that you have the disease of addiction. This disease can be treated and there can be a very healthy and happy solution to this problem. But, first we need to get you the appropriate help, a safe place to detox, and a place to learn how to treat this common disease. I bet your family doctor can help you get started or the local hospital has detox.

Please seek out: care for these symptoms. Stimulants can decrease depressive symptoms - so it is important to know if you have an underlying depressive disorder.
