Prescription drug addiction, detox & recovery
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.
Break the cycle
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, especially opioids, and other prescription drugs can be incredibly physically addictive – even for those who have never thought of themselves as having an ‘addictive nature’.
Unfortunately prescription drug abuse can create physical, emotional, psychological and social problems that impact people’s lives in many ways.
Detoxing from Pain Medications
If you have become dependent on pain medication such as Buprenorphine, Codeine, Oxycodone, Morphine and/or Methadone we can provide the most comfortable and supervised detox possible. Our managed prescription drug detox ensures that your withdrawal symptoms are monitored consistently and the detox is adjusted for your minimal discomfort.
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.
