Prescription Drugs & Pain Medication Addiction Recovery

Prescription drug abuse, such as the abuse of opioid painkillers, is becoming increasingly common and can create physical, emotional, psychological and social problems that impact on people’s lives in many ways.

The Bay’s approach to prescription drug and pain medication addiction treatment works with the understanding that you are a whole person, with complex and varied experiences. We develop a personal and comprehensive treatment program that works with all aspects of who you are. Your program will commence with physical detox that is medically managed, to be as comfortable as possible. Detox is followed by a therapeutic treatment program that includes holistic therapies and is tailored specifically for you, to achieve the best results for recovery.

If relevant, your program will address any chronic pain you may be experiencing that may be an underlying, or a contributing cause to, pain medication addiction. Our Chronic Pain Treatment Program aims to break the cycle of chronic pain and its associated anxiety, with various interventions including psychotherapy, physiotherapy, holistic inflammation reduction, and sleep improvement.

What is Prescription Drug Addiction?

Prescription drug addiction can manifest in many forms. One of the most common types of addiction involves the overuse of pain medication. In fact, pain medication addiction is even more prevalent than addiction to illegal substances like heroin, methamphetamine, and cocaine.

There are many other forms of prescription drug abuse, such as the misuse of pharmaceutical stimulants prescribed for ADHD treatment; or the compulsive abuse of sedatives used to treat anxiety.

Pain medications and other prescription drugs can be incredibly physically addictive – even for those who have never thought of themselves as having an “addictive nature.”

Prescription medications such as pain medication can cause feelings of euphoria and pleasure, induce a calm or drowsy state, as well as added pain relief and other effects when taken in high doses, leading to psychological dependence and physical addiction. Once physical addiction occurs, it is very hard to detox on your own due to the highly addictive nature of these pharmaceuticals and the impact they have on your body.

At The Bay, we create a tailored detox and individualised rehabilitation retreat, so you can feel as comfortable and secure as possible while you recover. Your treatment team of healthcare professionals, hand-chosen by us to best suit your needs and preferences, will guide you through the process in absolute privacy, in your relaxing one-to-one retreat, in the beautiful Byron Bay region.
