Prescription medications are effective in treating a number of conditions, ranging from physical ailments to mental health concerns. When consumed as directed under the care of a physician, prescription drugs can increase the quality of an individual’s life when other kinds of care fail to be effective enough. However, while beneficial when used as prescribed, many prescription drugs can be dangerous to one’s health and can lead to the development of an addiction if they are abused.

Since many prescription medications bring about feelings of pleasure when they are abused, many people find that they continually use them to achieve the mind- and mood-altering effects that are produced. The longer that a prescription medication is abused, the more likely an individual is to develop an addiction to it. When this occurs, finding a way out of the dangerous cycle of prescription drug abuse can be extremely challenging.

If you are addicted to a prescription medication, you might benefit most from receiving care at a treatment center that offers detox services. Detox is an intervention that clears your body of dangerous substances like prescription medications. This process can serve as an excellent starting point for your road to recovery.

What to Expect

What to expect during detox from prescription drugs

Depending on the kind of prescription medication that you are abusing, the withdrawal that you might experience can vary. However, most individuals, regardless of what type of medication they are addicted to, will likely grapple with feelings of discomfort, cravings, and irritability, which can interfere with attempts at obtaining recovery.

Withdrawal symptoms can often make it easy for you to go right back to using your drug of choice to alleviate the discomfort that you are experiencing. When this happens, feelings of defeat can begin to sink in, which can cause you to delve into the abuse of prescription drugs more. This is extremely dangerous, and can make suffering continuous relapses more likely and increase your risk of overdose.

As is true for other forms of substance abuse, you might have to hit rock bottom before you fully realize that professional treatment is needed. If this is the case for you, there are a handful of different treatment options that can help you obtain recovery and prevent relapse and overdose for good.

What Past Clients Say

I came here during the worst time of my life. I had so much anxiety coming in but the girls in the admissions area were so pleasant and answered all my questions. The hospital was clean and staff were friendly and helpful on the unit. The medicine they gave me helped so much, and I finally feel like myself again. If you’re willing to participate and go to all the groups, you will get something out of the program. I went right from inpatient to their day program for a week afterwards, and that helped me stay focused too.
