Prescription Drug Addiction Treatment

Prescription drug addiction is a widespread condition. We are passionate to take the path toward addiction recovery with you. Addiction to prescription drugs can occur with many patients since the prescriptions are intended to relieve physical pain, better sleep, or psychological issues. Moreover, these medicines can act like a drug by altering the brain and rendering a person dependent on them. Among the common medications that are misused are: Abstral, Diastat, Ativan, Actiq, ketamine, Oramorph, Stilnoct, and several others.

Dealing with medication addiction is complicated since they are prescribed as a cure and are permitted for the patient. During the detox period, which intends to get rid of the addiction, a person will experience different levels of withdrawal based on the substance in their system and the dose they use. We approach each visitor with this information in mind to create a specialized recovery plan that best suits them. At THE BALANCE Prescription Drug Addiction Treatment Center, our physician will monitor your physical vitals in order to alleviate any possible distress. The detox is followed by behavioral therapy that facilitates recovery and prevents future relapses.
