Prescription Drug Addiction Rehab Centers

How Painkillers Kill More Than Just Pain

Prescription medications are prescribed to treat mental issues as well as chronic pain. They are highly addictive and if used improperly can lead to addiction, overdose and death.

Prescription drug overdose deaths are higher than deaths related to drugs like meth or heroine.

About 7 million Americans take prescription medications recreationally or in a way that is not prescribed by their doctors. Almost half a million individuals are hospitalized for problems related to prescription abuse. Recent studies show that every 19 minutes, someone dies from an unintentional drug overdose.

Almost 34,000 deaths have been reported each year as a result of misusing prescription drugs, which is far greater than the number of deaths from car accidents. There are several other risks a user should consider:

  • Becoming infected with blood-borne illnesses
  • Problems with the heart
  • Uncontrollable shaking
  • Seeing and hearing things that are not present
  • Heightened HIV risk
  • Seizures

Symptoms of Pain Medication Abuse

Symptoms of prescription drug abuse vary depending on the drug; however, most cause drowsiness, slurred speech, agitation, constipation, nausea and reduced appetite.

Sprout Health Arizona’s Substance Abuse Rehab Centers

Sprout Health Arizona’s treatments always begin with detoxification where patients will safely remove all toxins from the body, either in a hospital setting or at our facility. During this time, all patients will experience withdrawal symptoms. Depending on the severity of their addiction, we will provide certain medications to help ease the pain from the withdrawals.

After, or in some cases during, the detoxification process, patients will begin their treatment program by attending therapy sessions.

The Cognitive Behavioral Therapy helps patients identify their problems and learn tools to create a solution. They develop positive thinking skills as well as gain a greater sense of self-esteem. Another therapy we believe is effective is family therapy. We want to include your family in order to gain further insight into your health history as well as your home life. We will be able to better understand you and therefore, adjust your treatment plan accordingly.

The Effectiveness of Education

We believe that educating your family on the signs and symptoms of abuse and addiction as well as how to support a loved one through the recovery process is extremely important. Having a large support group can greatly increase the chance at a long lasting recovery.
