Prescription Drug Detox

Prescription Drug Detox

Just as many other people who have suffered from severe pain, ADHD, or anxiety, you know the great need for prescription medications to offer relief. Just as these medications are extremely effective, they are also highly addictive, often resulting in a physical dependency which leads to a full blown addiction if not treated immediately. Many of these drugs also offer psychoactive, or mind-altering effects that cause them to be sought out by drug abusers. Adding to the number of people suffering from dependency and addiction. Many of those who abuse prescription medications are under the false idea that since these drugs are prescribed by a doctor, found in medicine cabinets rather than the street, that they are safe. Any time a prescription medication is used for non-medical purposes it is considered substance abuse, a serious problem throughout the Nation. A 2011 report by the National Survey on Drug Abuse and Health states that 52 million people over the age of 12 have used prescription drugs non-medically at least once.

There are three main classes of prescription drugs that are commonly abused: opioid pain relievers, stimulants, and central nervous system depressants. Each type of drug can cause a physical and chemical dependence, as they alter the way the brain and body function. When abruptly stopping the use of these medications, or even drastically reducing a dose, it can result in uncomfortable, even painful symptoms of withdrawal. These withdrawal symptoms range in severity, some more painful than others, some even life threatening if not managed correctly to ensure the individual’s safety.

Breaking the cycle of dependency can be difficult to say the least, often requiring professional help. The first step in most recovery programs is Prescription Drug Detox. This is the process in which the body is cleansed of the harmful chemicals and toxins related to prescription drug abuse, aiding the patient through the withdrawal period with minimal discomfort. The detox process used is determined by the type of prescription drug abuse, the dose, and the length of time it had been used, as well as the personal needs of the patient, this makes the entire process individualized. Detox of South Florida is a leader in safe Prescription Drug Detox, helping thousands of people regain control of their lives from addiction.
