Treatment Programs for Prescription Drug Addiction
We help you tailor a program for your individual needs and addiction. Each program comes with therapy and access to our devoted team, as well as holistic components like volunteering and wellness activities.
Our prescription drug addiction treatment options include:
- Partial hospitalization program (PHP): PHP is our alternate to inpatient care. It provides stability, as well as at-will access to our medical staff.
- Intensive outpatient programs (IOP): Like PHP, IOP provides therapy with more options. As you grow through IOP, you will experience more time in the world and less time in a clinical setting.
- Night outpatient treatment: Night outpatient treatment, like IOP, offers the benefits of our treatment programs, delivered in the evening hours for working people.
Warning Signs of Prescription Drug Addiction
One of the most common signs of prescription drug addiction is an increased tolerance to the drug. This means that you need to take more and more of the drug in order to achieve the same effect. As your body becomes accustomed to the drug, it will become less effective, so you may find yourself taking larger doses in order to get the same results.
Another sign of prescription drug addiction is uncontrollable cravings for the drug. If you find yourself constantly thinking about taking a certain medication or if you feel like you cannot control your urge to take it, then this could be a sign that you are addicted.
Prescription drug addiction can also cause withdrawal symptoms when you stop taking the medication or reduce your dose. Common withdrawal symptoms include nausea, vomiting, headaches, insomnia, sweating, and difficulty concentrating. If these symptoms occur when you try to stop taking the medication, then this could be an indication that you are addicted.
People who are addicted to prescription drugs may begin to neglect their responsibilities in order to obtain and use their drugs. They may miss work or school in order to get more of their medication or they may start lying about where they have been in order to hide their addiction from others.
Taking Higher Doses than Prescribed
Finally, if you find yourself taking higher doses of a medication than what was prescribed by your doctor, then this could be a sign that you are addicted. Taking higher doses than recommended can be dangerous and can lead to serious side effects such as liver damage or overdose.
Long-Term Effects of Prescription Drug Abuse
Prescription drug abuse and addiction can have severe and long-lasting effects on an individual’s physical, psychological, and social well-being. Addiction to prescription medications can lead to a range of health problems, including liver and kidney damage, heart problems, and respiratory issues, to name a few.
Mental health can also be affected, with many people experiencing depression, anxiety, and mood swings, often leading to relationship and employment difficulties. Moreover, the long-term effects of prescription drug abuse can extend beyond the individual, affecting their family and loved ones.
