Pharmacy: Your pharmacy has the name of the doctor that prescribed you your Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine).

Their decision: I imagine the decision is one a hospital would make according to their own best practice/ethical guidelines. If they take their responsibility seriously, they might need to do their own evaluation for treatment they provide. This could be especially true w/ a drug that is often abused. I hope you've learned to keep better records from this experience. Some don't suffer severe or long withdrawal.
