Prescription Drug Addiction Treatment

What is Prescription Drug Addiction?

Prescription Drug Addiction is the point at which a person takes a prescribed drug/medication for anything other than why the medical provider prescribed it. It has been estimated by the experts that in excess of 18 million individuals ages 12 and older have utilized prescription medications for non-medical reasons each year and that continues to increase yearly.

The abuse of drugs, even provider prescribed medications, can change how your mind functions. A great many people start by deciding to take these meds. However, after some time, the alterations in your brain influence your attitude and behavior which ultimately influence your capacity to use sound judgment. Simultaneously, people start to develop an addiction and urges to take more and more of the abused drug.

What Types of Prescription Drugs Are Commonly Abused?

  • Opioids – Opioid painkillers like Codeine, Hydrocodone and Oxycodone are on the rise for prescription drug addiction as they are being used commonly by individuals who are battling long term pain. Opioids can cause a mild joyful feeling. Some people using them illegally snort or inject them to get that effect faster. Injecting drugs raises your chances of getting diseases like HIV and hepatitis C.
  • CNS (Central Nervous System) Depressants – Benzos, or Benzodiazepines (Xanax, Valium and Ativan) are prescribed to millions of Americans in order to treat sleep disorders or anxiety.
  • Barbiturates – These are another type of CNS depressants that are used commonly for anesthesia and to treat seizures by medical providers. These can be especially addictive and dangerous whereas when they are combined with alcohol, it can slow heart rate and breathing that can result in death.
  • Stimulants – Stimulants are used by medical providers to help boost alertness, attention and energy. The most common use for stimulants is for ADHD treatment and include (Vyvanse, Adderall and Concerta). Stimulant abuse — for instance, by taking them in higher doses or by crushing pills and snorting them — can lead to addiction. High doses can raise your body temperature. Misusing stimulants or using them along with decongestants may cause uneven heartbeat.

What are the causes of Prescription Drug addiction?

Some experts think that more people are abusing prescription medications because there are more drugs available. Doctors report writing more prescriptions than ever before. Also, it’s easy to find online pharmacies selling these drugs. Teens may take medication from their parents’ medicine cabinets for themselves or their friends to use. Most young people have no idea what medications they’re taking and which ones may cause serious problems, even death, if used with other drugs or alcohol.  They might also believe that the medicines are safe because they’re prescription.

Signs and Symptoms of Prescription Drug Addiction

Signs of abuse can depend on the drug involved.

 Someone who abuses opioids might have:

  • Dizziness
  • Slow or shallow breathing
  • Upset stomach, vomiting, or constipation
  • Slurred speech
  • Poor coordination
  • Mood swings
  • Depression or anxiety

Abuse of CNS depressants can cause:

  • Mood changes
  • Trouble walking
  • Trouble concentrating
  • Poor judgment
  • Slow reflexes
  • Slurred speech
  • Memory problems
  • Slow breathing

Symptoms of stimulant abuse include:

  • Weight loss and lack of appetite
  • Dizziness
  • Headache
  • Insomnia
  • Nervousness
  • High blood pressure
  • Uneven heart rate
  • Paranoia

Prescription Drug Addiction Addiction Treatment

Treatment for opioid addiction includes medications that can help people get control without a high chance of addiction. Buprenorphine treats opiate withdrawal and dependence. Doctors often use it along with the drug naloxone (a combination that can be called Bunavail, Suboxone, or Zubsolv) to prevent relapse. If you’ve been taking buprenorphine in pill form and your body has gotten rid of all of the drug you were abusing, you might have another form of buprenorphine implanted under your skin. This is called Probuphine. It provides a constant dose of buprenorphine for 6 months. Buprenorphine also comes as a monthly shot called Sublocade.

Other drug treatments for opiate withdrawal include methadone and the blood pressure medicine clonidine. Naltrexone blocks the effects of opiates and can prevent a relapse. It can be taken orally (Revia) or as a monthly injection (Vivitrol). Doctors recommend that people who misuse opioids keep naloxone, a medication that can reverse an overdose. It comes in a shot (Evzio) and a nasal spray (Narcan). Experts believe that “medication-assisted treatment” with methadone, naltrexone, or suboxone and cognitive behavioral therapy is the best treatment for most patients who have an opioid addiction. Counseling is the most common treatment for addiction to CNS depressants or stimulants. You might also need to detoxify (“detox”) your body. Mountainview Recovery offers the Industry-leading Drug Detox, Alcohol Detox and Drug Rehab programs to their patients.

The FDA offers these guidelines for safe prescription medication use:
  • Always follow the directions carefully.
  • Don’t raise or lower doses without talking with your doctor first.
  • Never stop taking a medication on your own.
  • Don’t crush or break pills, especially if they’re time-released.
  • Make sure you know how a drug will affect your driving and other daily tasks.
  • Learn about what can happen if you take a medication with alcohol or other prescription and over-the-counter drugs.
  • Talk honestly with your doctor about any personal or family history of substance abuse.
  • Never allow other people to use your prescription medications, and don’t take theirs.

According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, you should never use opioids with CNS depressants, including:

  • Alcohol
  • Antihistamines
  • Barbiturates
  • Benzodiazepines
  • Sleep medications
  • General anesthetics

Don’t use CNS depressants with other things that dull your central nervous system, such as:

  • Alcohol
  • Prescription opioid pain medicines
  • Some over-the-counter cold and allergy medications

Be careful using stimulants along with other substances that spark your nervous system, including:

  • Antidepressants, as supervised by a doctor
  • Over-the-counter decongestant medications
  • Some asthma medications

When I came to Mountainview I was lost and in need of help. I gave this program a chance to teach me about my addiction... and how to obtain sobriety. It did just that and much more. The program, the facilities, the staff and the other addicts that i resided with were exactly what I needed to achieve sobriety for the first time in 11 years. I highly recommend this rehab to anyone who is struggling with their addiction. Thank you again Mountainview for giving me my life back and allowing me to become who I am meant to be. I will always cherish the times there.Love, Camoread more

I hate the way things turned out for me with mountain view because I was looking forward to the opportunity to go into... this facility. My wife had discovered the facility online and was excited about me going because they seem to be very professional and on top of their game when it comes to rehabilitation and mental health services. She spoke with the man named Jordan who had said everything up when he discovered that we had really good medical insurance he went right to work for us. After speaking with him and explain to my situation he shared with me a few things that we would have to do that we're kind of shady to manipulate the system in order to get my insurance to be able to pay. The manipulator that I am I was eager to participate but also concerned at the same time. So I made sure that I recorded all her phone calls. And I did as I was told. Well I was at the detox center in English mountain a completely different facility which I later discovered Jordan had a special special interest in I had a complication with a counselor there. The counselor had violated a HIPAA rule and cause problems for me. When Jordan didn't discovered this haven't had personal dealings with accounts for he chose to punish me by telling me that I had to wait 2 weeks at that facility the detox facility before I could come and begin my 30-day program at mountain view. Now I'm sitting in a motel room riding a review not sure what I'm going to go to next. And in fact I feel like I'm at my last straw. This may be it for me thanks a lot Jordan have a niceread more

I thank God for these people and I'm sincerely thankful for all of the great relationships/friendships I've built coming into this programread more

Mountainview is an awesome recovery center. They truly care about the people in the program. When my sister decided... she wanted help, I researched several recovery centers and I knew Mountainview was the one for her. Jordan talked to me several times about the process and answered my calls/questions every time I called. I felt comfortable when we dropped my sister off, like we were leaving her with family. Mountainview gave her the help she needed to stop using drugs and take back her life. She completed the program at Mountainview over two months ago and she is still doing great. We are so proud of her, and could not be more grateful for the staff and program at Mountainview.read more

Deciding to go to Mountainview Recovery was one of the best decisions of my life. I was on a path to nowhere fast, and... I honestly would not be here right now if it wasn't for their program. From the very beginning, Jordan was wonderful to deal with. It did not matter what time of day it was, if you had a question, he was answering the phone. When I arrived at MV, everyone I met greeted me with open arms. They understood where I was coming from and genuinely cared about helping me get to where I wanted to be. I could not recommend this place anymore than I do. It is life changing and I am forever grateful to them ❤️❤️❤️read more

I transferred to Mountainview Recovery after a month of rehab at a different treatment center. I found that the two... centers were very different in their approach to recovery, as well as how the staff treated me as a client. From my very first day, I was treated like family at Mountainview. Through daily classes and psychotherapy, I gained the knowledge that I needed to maintain my sobriety. I came to understand why I had an addiction & eventually found the strength that I needed to return to my normal life without relying on a substance to escape. The house is beautiful & managed by staff that go out of their way to make you feel comfortable. Food was provided with weekly gift cards so we could eat what we wanted. Most of us made meals together. We had meetings by the fire pit & went on weekly hikes. I am so thankful for the lifelong connections & friendships that I made at MVR.I am stronger & happier now than I have been in decades. I wake up each morning with purpose & a sense of hope. I give Mountainview so much credit for my recovery. I could have never done this on my own.read more
