Prescription Medication Dependency Treatment
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has declared that prescription drug abuse has reached epidemic status in the US (2013). They further note that in 2010, nearly 60 percent of drug overdose deaths involved pharmaceutical drugs. Often, drugs that have been prescribed for mental health conditions are the same ones that are being abused and are resulting in these deaths.
When discussing drug addiction, many individuals don’t think about prescribed medications as being problematic. However, because of the addictive nature of many prescription drugs, the pathway to addiction can be shorter than you might imagine. Prescription drug abuse refers to an individual’s taking a prescription medication without a prescription, or taking it other than as prescribed to achieve an effect (i.e., getting high). Some individuals report taking prescription medications to improve focus, but find that they can no longer function without the drug. There are numerous pathways that lead to the abuse of prescription medication, that are many times impacted by underlying psychological issues. For prescription medication dependency we have found that treatments that focus on both physical and emotional are most effective in the healing process.
The team at Archways Recovery Centers are experts in prescription medication dependency and overall addiction treatment. We have a broad understanding of the psychiatric, psychological and medical conditions that underlie the misuse of prescription medications. We will assess your history of substance abuse, and symptoms.
Archways Recovery Centers examines the underlying causes and conditions of the entire addictive disease process. As a result of this process, we are often able to identify a co-occurring psychiatric condition that may be fueling this process. It’s important to address these issues as co-occurring disorders frequently lie at the root of repeated relapses.
