Prescription Drug Addiction and Treatment

Chapters Capistrano is a premier leader in handling prescription drug addiction. The addiction experts at Chapters have created a highly personalized treatment program for individuals addicted to prescription drugs. Each case of prescription drug dependence is unique and requires a specialized approach to ensure success and allow an addict to achieve freedom from drug dependency.

Prescription Drugs Rehab Information

Prescription drug abuse can refer to the use of a wide variety of drugs including mood altering, psychoactive, performance enhancing, stimulants and depressives. Drugs that are often associated with prescription drug abuse include amphetamines, barbiturates, benzodiazepines and opiates. Abuse often begins with exposure to these drugs for medicinal purposes. Complications occur when the drug(s) are taken outside of medical supervision and exceed prescribed amounts.

Effects of Prescription Drug Use

The fact that addicts use prescription medication for recreational purposes gives the abuser a false sense of safety.  The abuser relies on the idea that because pharmaceutical companies manufacture the drugs and the drugs are legal, they are therefore safe. The fact of the matter is that prescription drugs can have a devastating effect on the life of the abuser as well as their family and friends. Exceeding prescribed dosages, mixing medications, or drinking alcohol while taking prescription drugs cause health challenges and can sometimes be fatal. There are often strong withdrawal symptoms associated with ending prescription drug abuse that can cause the addict to seek out other drugs to fill the void.

Prescription Drug Detoxification Withdrawal Doesn’t Have To Be Painful

At Chapters, we understand that most people are anxious about the idea of going through prescription drug withdrawal and this keeps them using the drug.   We recognize that withdrawal can be uncomfortable, but it doesn’t have to be.

Through the prescription drug rehab program at Chapters, our process engages the most traditional and safe form of withdrawal from using prescription drugs, which is a drug-specific detox. Clients receive mild prescription medication under medical supervision that reduces the risk of seizure and eases withdrawal symptoms. These medications generally are prescribed in tapering amounts until the body is physically stabilized.
