Prescription Drug Detox
Many people falsely assume drugs that are prescribed by a doctor are safe. This is not always true! Misuse of these prescription medications can easily lead to physical dependence and addiction, which could have lasting effects on your health in addition to harming both mind-and body-wise morals for life if left unchecked.
We want you or someone close enough we care about them aware of just how serious this issue truly gets so they know what their next steps should be after deciding detoxification may need some more attention than initially thought.
Just because you received a prescription from a medical doctor doesn't mean the drugs are always safe. Many of these drugs can include serious, even potentially lethal, side effects if taken outside of their recommended use.
Some of the most common abuse prescription drugs are:
Opioids (Hydrocodone, Oxycontin, Percocet, Oxycodone)
Common signs and symptoms of Opioid abuse
- Feeling high (euphoria)
- Slowed breathing rate
- Poor coordination
- Increased dose required for pain relief
- Worsening or increased sensitivity to pain with higher doses (hyperalgesia)
Anxiety medication and sedatives (Xanax, Valium, Ambien)
Common signs and symptoms of anxiety medication and sedative abuse
- Unsteady walking
- Slurred speech
- Problems with memory
- Slowed breathing
- Poor concentration
Stimulants (Ritalin, Concert, Vyvanse, Adderall)
Common signs and symptoms of stimulant abuse
- Increased alertness
- Feeling high
- High blood pressure
- High body temperature
- Irregular heartbeat
- Reduced appetite
The first step in the process is to complete a quick 15-20 minute assessment with one of our coordinators. This process will ask you basic questions to get a well-rounded picture for your individualized treatment plan. We want to ensure we provide you with the best treatment and care possible.
