Rx Rehab in Margate

So, what does our Rx rehab in Margate include? Legacy Healing Center provides clinical treatments for addiction. This includes specific treatment plans that are designed to help you through an Rx addiction.

But first, your rehab program will help you through your physical dependence. The reason why prescription drugs are controlled substances is because there is a possibility for physical dependence. A dependence will result in withdrawal symptoms. Stimulants, sedatives, and opioids have different symptoms of withdrawal, but all of these symptoms can be managed in our medical detox program – an essential part of Rx drug rehab.

Behavioral therapies and holistic healing methods then become the focus of your treatment plan. Behavioral therapy might include process therapy, motivation enhancement therapy, solution-focused therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, and dialectical behavioral therapy. The whole-patient approach to therapy that we have addressed other areas of your daily life and wellbeing that can improve your long-term sobriety. 

Holistic healing includes treating possible co-occurring mental disorders in our dual diagnosis program, helping you to improve your career, family therapy, and other elements of long-term recovery such as community engagement.

The care and support that we provide doesn’t end after rehab; we will help you to create a relapse prevention plan which will include 12-step meetings, strategies to prevent relapse, alumni activities, and access to a sober coach that will be there to support you in the future.

Understanding Signs of Rx Addiction

So, how do you know that you need our prescription drug rehab in Margate? There are several behavioral, emotional, and physical signs that an Rx addiction is taking place. Firstly, addiction can be apparent by its withdrawal symptoms. Symptoms vary in intensity based on how severe the addiction is and which prescription drug it is; stimulants, opioids, and sedatives have different withdrawal symptoms.

A tolerance to the effects of a drug can also indicate substance addiction as it shows that your body has begun to adapt to the presence of the Rx drug. A person may steal prescriptions from others or even try to have fake prescriptions filled out. Taking more than the recommended amount of prescription drugs along with seeing several doctors try to get more prescriptions can also be signs of an Rx addiction.

Reporting prescriptions as stolen or lost in order to get new prescriptions is common. A change in sleep patterns and fluctuating moods further indicate an addiction. The person may also be overly defensive when questioned about their use of Rx drugs.

Why Rx Addiction is On the Rise

It has become exceedingly easy to obtain a prescription for opioids, sedatives or stimulants in the United States – even after regulation and stricter control following the opioid epidemic. Rx drugs are readily available and because there is a high risk of abuse with these medications, addictions to the drugs have increased. 

Furthermore, some doctors are paid extra to sell certain prescription drugs or don’t properly screen for higher-than-usual addiction risk in their patients.

The Most Abused Rx Medications

Out of the three categories of Rx medications – sedatives, opioids, and stimulants – there are certain brand names among them that are more abused than others. Some of the brand names that we are most familiar with in our prescription drug rehab in Margate, FL, include the following.

In the opioid category, the most abused Rx medications include Percocet, Oxycontin, and Norco. Sedatives, or anti-anxiety medications, that are most abused include names such as Ambien, Xanax, and Valium. Finally, the most abused stimulants include Mydayis, Concerta, Ritalin, Adderall XR, and Dexedrine.

Dangers of Rx Addiction

The true danger of an addiction to prescription drugs is measured in lives lost. The thousands of lives lost each year as a direct result of an overdose on prescription pills continues to grow. The longer you are enslaved to a drug, the greater your risk of overdose is. 

Even if you manage to avoid a fatal overdose, the health effects of long-term use of Rx drugs can cause significant health problems, such as brain damage, heart problems and more. Mental health also suffers the longer the addiction carries on for, which is made worse by the changes in your brain structure, such as lowering your capability to produce natural “feel-good” chemicals.
