For many people struggling with prescription drug abuse, it can be very daunting to take the first steps of action toward recovery. One of the great benefits that sets The Lakehouse Recovery Center apart is our ability to work with each person individually, and create a thorough prescription drug detox treatment plan that addresses all aspects of a person’s goals, so that he or she can successfully detox from prescription drugs and transition into the treatment phase.
Because many drugs prescribed by doctors are highly addictive, it can be very challenging to maintain efforts of sobriety, even with sincere efforts, if the right support and guidance isn’t in place. Furthermore, people can sometimes experience uncomfortable side effects throughout this prescription drug detox process.
At The Lakehouse Recovery Center, we are committed to helping people enter into treatment and undergo a safe, successful, and comfortable detox experience.
Prescription Drug Addiction & Withdrawals
Prescription drug abuse refers to a person using a prescription drug either in a manner or amount that it’s not intended. It also includes if an individual is using a drug that was prescribed to someone else.
This drug abuse has continued to become more prevalent in recent years and is now one of the most commonly abused substances in the United States.
Especially in recent years, with the opioid epidemic moving across the United States, we are seeing more and more prescription drug abuse.
Some of the most commonly abused drugs tend to include pain relievers and stimulants, including but not limited to:
While it’s common for sometimes people to believe that these drugs are less risky or dangerous than illicit ones, many of them are highly addictive and can lead to serious addiction and/or risks.
One of the reasons why achieving sobriety in prescription drug detox and treatment can be so challenging is because the withdrawal symptoms can be uncomfortable and in some cases, it can be dangerous for people to detox from prescription drugs too quickly.
For these reasons, it’s very important for people to ensure a safe, controlled, gradual prescription drug detox, which is overseen by mental and physical health professionals.
