Such treatments combined can help clients regain physical and mental strength, so you can embark on a new and healthier chapter. Let’s take a closer look at prescription drug rehab and what it entails.

Rehab therapy group for prescription drug addiction

What is prescription drug rehab?

A prescription drug treatment programme is a process that helps people learn healthy coping mechanisms so they no longer rely on medication for emotional support. Whether they’re attending opiate rehab, benzodiazepine rehab or any other prescription drug treatment programme, clients will undergo a medical detox and receive extensive therapy to heal from their dependency – both physically and mentally.

Some people attempt to quit prescription drugs alone. We strongly advise against this as it could be counterproductive and dangerous, given as it has a high risk of relapse and overdose. Meanwhile, in a professional rehab facility such as Sanctuary Lodge, medical specialists will be able to keep an eye out for and eliminate any risks, so you are safe from harm. A prescription drug rehab centre will offer a fresh, and healthy environment that is more likely to help you succeed on your recovery journey.  Click either link below to learn about rehab from different types of prescription drug addictions:

Choosing the right prescription drug rehab for you

Supporting hands from a loved one

It’s important to make the right decision when choosing which drug rehab to attend. Some things to consider are:

  • Whether you opt for NHS rehab or private rehab
  • The location of the prescription drug rehab
  • The facilities and utilities each prescription drug rehab offers

Public vs. private prescription drug rehab

At first glance, NHS and other public rehab facilities are cheaper than private rehab and may seem a tempting choice. However, the lower costs can come at a high price. Public rehab facilities usually take weeks to admit new residents due to the high volume of clients, and they’re likely to provide a general treatment programme. Whereas private rehab can admit clients straight away and thus provide specialised and thorough prescription drug treatment.

Location of the rehab

The location of the prescription drug rehab treatment programme is important to take into consideration. If the rehab is far from home, you’ll be at a fair distance from your go-to triggers, which could reduce any temptation to relapse. However, choosing to attend a rehab in reasonable proximity to your loved ones will mean that support is also not too far away, and they can visit you for weekly family therapy sessions if you all wish. This is likely to boost you further toward recovery.

Frequently asked questions

What are the prescriptions you can get addicted to?
You can get addicted to any prescription drug that causes chemical imbalances in the brain. Addiction can occur with any medication, since addiction is a coping mechanism of an underlying issue.
Are some prescription drugs illegal?
Prescription drugs are not illegal if prescribed by a practising medical professional, as they are given the discretion to provide prescribed doses of drugs with care to patients who need them. However, it is possible to buy prescription drugs online, in unsafe doses. Selling any medication for recreational use, even if originally prescribed, is illegal.
Can I die from prescription drug addiction?
In short, yes. While some prescription drugs like Fentanyl, Methadone and Morphine are more dangerous than others, less dangerous prescription drugs can also be fatal if taken frequently enough and in extreme doses.
