How to fix Stimulant Addiction

If you’re someone who relies on using stimulants often, you’ll probably end up addicted at least once. This can result in you becoming encumbered and will slow your O2 recovery. How you can cure Stimulant Addiction in Starfield is either through taking a Junk Flush Stimulant or visiting a doctor.

The cheapest way to cure yourself of this addiction is by finding a doctor. In all major cities such as New Atlantis, Akila City, and Neon, you’ll find a doctor’s office. Once you arrive, chat with a doctor, and they can cure your Stimulant Addiction for 450 credits. This really isn’t a lot of money once you start getting further into Starfield since credits are easy to come by.

If you don’t want to have to always visit a doctor, you can also purchase Junk Flush Stimulant for 665 credits. Vendors sell these stimulants that will cure your Stimulant Addiction with… another stimulant. Sounds counter-intuitive, but it works! It’s a little more pricey, but it’s good to have a few on you when out adventuring.

Another thing you may rather purchase to stave off the effects of addiction is Addichrone. This is yet another stimulant that will temporarily stop the negative side effects of the addiction for 10 minutes. It’s much cheaper at 380 credits, so if you like to be frugal, keep some Addichrone on you to take before you get the chance to visit a doctor.

Starfield is available on Steam and the Microsoft Store.
