When you receive a prescription from your doctor, it’s easy to focus on the benefits over the risks. Chronic pain, sleep disorders, and certain mental health conditions can all be treated with the help of prescription medication, but often, these medications can carry a risk of addiction. Breaking free from addiction isn’t a matter of willpower—when your brain becomes dependent on a substance, it takes time and professional support to overcome that dependency. Recovery is possible, and through Texas Recovery Center’s prescription drug addiction treatment program, you can take the first step toward a healthy, sober future.
We work closely with each patient to help them discover what is driving their addiction and help them build healthy coping skills for the future. Through detox, residential treatment, and our partial hospitalization program, we’re able to support patients at every stage of their recovery journey.
Understanding Prescription Drug Addiction
Prescription drug addiction is a serious and often misunderstood issue. Many people believe that because prescription drugs are obtained legally, they cannot be as harmful as illegal substances. However, prescription drug addiction is just as dangerous and destructive as any other form of addiction. For some, it starts with a legitimate need for medication, but over time, the body becomes dependent on the substance and tolerance increases, leading to higher doses and potentially dangerous behaviors.
Some of the most commonly abused prescription drugs include:
- Opioids – OxyContin, Percocet, Vicodin, and other painkillers
- Stimulants – Adderall, Ritalin, and other medications used to treat ADHD
- Depressants – Xanax, Valium, and other benzodiazepines used to treat anxiety and sleep disorders
While these medications can be helpful when used as prescribed, they also carry a high risk of addiction and dependence. The risks begin when patients start to deviate from their prescribed usage, either by taking more than recommended or using the medication for non-medical purposes.
Signs That You or a Loved One Would Benefit from Prescription Drug Addiction Treatment
If you or someone you know is struggling with prescription drug addiction, it’s important to seek help as soon as possible. Some signs that treatment may be necessary include:
- Taking higher doses of medication than prescribed
- Running out of medication before the next refill date
- Constantly thinking about, obtaining, and using the medication
- Using the medication for non-medical purposes, such as to get high or cope with stress
- Experiencing withdrawal symptoms when trying to stop using the medication
- Turning to other substances when unable to access prescription drugs
If any of these signs sound familiar, it’s time to seek professional help. At Texas Recovery Center, we understand the complexities of prescription drug addiction and offer individualized treatment plans tailored to each patient’s needs.
Texas Recovery Center's Prescription Drug Addiction Treatment Program
Since addiction is a mental health condition and no two cases are similar, your treatment plan will be specific to your unique needs. When you enter our prescription drug addiction treatment program, you’ll first go through detox. This level of care involves both medical care and emotional support to help you manage withdrawal symptoms and physical discomfort.
Once you have successfully completed detox, you can transition into our residential treatment program. This is where the bulk of your recovery work will take place. Our highly trained and compassionate staff will guide you through therapy sessions, educational workshops, and other activities designed to help you understand the underlying causes of your addiction and build healthy coping skills. From evidence-based therapies like cognitive-behavioral therapy to holistic approaches like adventure and wilderness therapy, every aspect of our program is tailored to help you heal and thrive in recovery.
For those who are ready to transition out of residential treatment but still need ongoing support, we offer a partial hospitalization program (PHP). This level of care provides more structure than traditional outpatient treatment and allows for a gradual transition back into daily life while still receiving intensive therapy and support.
