Hello,Welcome to Just Answer. My name is***** and I will be helping you today.
I'm sorry no one has attempted to answer your question. It is because it is such a sensitive one.
The truth is that no provider is going to willingly prescribe a controlled substance such as Adderall to someone with a history of drug abuse. Regardless of the reason someone was taking meth, it is still an illegal drug.
Your best recourse is to contact your local health department and ask them if there is a drug treatment program in your area. There will be since I don't know of any town that doesn't have one. Providers there can prescribe whatever medication is required, but the patient will be monitored regularly to make sure that they are only taking what is being prescribed. Patients are usually welcome whether they are currently using illegal drugs or not. Other services are offered such as counseling. If you have no insurance this may all be covered or there may be a fee. It varies by the community. Generic Adderall should be available for less than $50 a month.
If you want to contact a private psychiatrist and pay out of pocket, an initial visit is typically several hundred dollars. Follow up visits are less (usually less than $175 per visit).
I hope this will answer your question without offending you.
