Learn About Prescription Drug Addiction Treatment

Treatment for prescription drug addiction at Bradford Recovery Center in Millerton, PA

When used in the proper way, prescription drugs can be helpful tools to overcome a variety of issues, whether they be physical, mental, or emotional. Prescription drugs can alleviate physical pain, help individuals manage symptoms of a mental illness, or treat chronic conditions. Commonly prescribed medications include opioids, painkillers, stimulants, and benzodiazepines. For example, a surgeon may prescribe a painkiller such as Vicodin to help a patient manage physical pain, while a psychiatrist may prescribe a benzodiazepine like Ativan to alleviate anxiety. Some drugs may relax you, some may energize you, and others may ease bodily discomfort. No matter the prescription, individuals who self-medicate, or who take drugs outside of or past the point of their intended use, and individuals who use drugs recreationally are at risk for developing an addiction.

Some people develop an addiction accidentally, such as by taking painkillers too frequently after a surgery. Some prescription medications, including OxyContin and codeine, are highly addictive, and a person can develop a dependence on their effects even while taking them under the guidance of a doctor. Therefore, prescription medications should be taken with caution and consistently monitored by your physician. Using these drugs outside of their intended purpose can quickly lead to an addiction. Some individuals use their prescription medications recreationally to achieve a feeling of euphoria, or a high.

If you develop an addiction to prescription drugs, there is hope. By receiving treatment at a place like Bradford Recovery Center in Millerton, Pennsylvania, you can learn to manage symptoms of prescription drug addiction. Our highly qualified staff is ready to help you achieve a healthier and happier lifestyle.

Why Consider Treatment at Bradford

Why consider getting prescription drug addiction treatment at Bradford Recovery Center in Millerton, PA

Using prescription drugs outside of the guidance of a doctor or past the point of their intended use can lead to various mental and physical health concerns. Depending upon the type of drug an individual has been misusing, possible physical consequences of an untreated prescription drug addiction can include shallow breathing, depressed heart rate, poor coordination, loss of consciousness, kidney failure, organ damage, memory problems, and brain damage.

An addiction to prescription drugs may result in poor work performance, unemployment, and various financial difficulties. Someone who struggles with a prescription drug addiction may neglect certain responsibilities, such as going to work, providing for their family, or taking care of their children. For example, an individual who has a prescription drug addiction may use money that is supposed to go toward groceries to access other prescriptions or illicit substances. Someone who misuses prescription drugs may miss holidays, birthdays, or other big life events. An individual who is suffering from an addiction may lose interest in the activities and hobbies they once loved or isolate themselves from friends and other loved ones.

Furthermore, an individual who wrestles with an addiction to prescription medications may face social or legal consequences after stealing other people’s prescriptions. An addiction to prescription drugs can result in exorbitant debt, homelessness, or imprisonment. Prescription drug addiction can also lead to the onset of co-occurring mental illnesses. Being addicted to prescription drugs may bring about feelings of hopelessness and possibly trigger thoughts of suicide.
