Prescription Drug Addiction and Treatment

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

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 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 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 these 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 abuse that can cause the addict to seek out other drugs to fill the void.

Detoxification Withdrawal Doesn’t Have To Be Painful

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

Through the 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.
