Prescription Drug Addiction Treatment

Dedicated to Excellence

woman entering a prescription drug addiction treatment programWhen you receive a prescription from your doctor, you might not consider the risks of the medications they prescribe. However, many medications can be habit-forming. Individuals who take prescription pain relievers, for example, can develop a dependence on them. Stimulants like Adderall can be misused. And sedatives like Valium and Xanax can cause painful or uncomfortable withdrawal symptoms.

Types of Prescription Drugs

Many types of prescription medications can be habit-forming. Opioid pain relievers such as Vicodin, Percocet, Oxycontin, codeine, or morphine might be prescribed after an accident or surgery. Although these are effective at relieving pain, they can be misused if an individual takes them in a way other than as prescribed or uses them for the purpose of getting high. 

Stimulants like Adderall or Ritalin can be very helpful for those who struggle with ADHD, but they can also be abused. Some individuals use these drugs to focus, while others use them as party drugs.

Finally, depressants such as benzodiazepines can also be highly addictive. These are likely to be prescribed for anxiety and panic attacks but have a high potential for abuse. It is also difficult to detox from benzos like Xanax or Valium because the withdrawal symptoms can be severe.

How We Treat Prescription Drug Addiction

Not all addictions are the same. Those who suffer from prescription drug addiction may have a problem that has developed slowly over several years. A person may not realize that they are abusing their drugs if they consistently increase their dosage. For this reason, prescription drug treatment must be specialized to suit the condition.

Treatment services we offer to help those with prescription drug addiction include:

  • Group therapy
  • Anger management
  • Dual diagnosis treatment
  • Dialectical behavior therapy
  • Medication-assisted treatment
  • Motivational interviewing
  • Family therapy
  • Relapse prevention therapy
  • 12-step meetings
  • Life skills training

When you begin treatment at TruHealing Riverbend, you will be introduced to a broad spectrum of treatment options. Our team might recommend different levels of treatment, as well as individual, group, and family therapy programs. 

Your treatment specialist can meet with you to discuss your addiction and any possible mental health disorders you have. From there, they can assess your condition and make recommendations on the best treatment plan for you. The goal of each plan is to help you recover from addiction without relapse.

Dual Diagnosis Treatment

Substance use and mental health disorders often form a symbiotic relationship in which one triggers or fuels the other. Your addiction may aggravate the symptoms of mental health conditions like anxiety or depression, or you may have started taking prescription medication to cope with the disorder.

Through a dual diagnosis, your therapist can assess your addiction and identify your mental health disorder. Common disorders associated with prescription drug addiction include bipolar disorder, anxiety, depression, ADHD, PTSD, or borderline personality disorder. Our prescription drug addiction treatment program can help you manage both conditions.
