Prescription Drugs Rehab Center
Everyone who has been sick before already experienced taking prescription drugs or medicines that are regulated by law and need a prescription from the doctor before the same can be obtained. While most people cannot wait to stop taking them, there are those who keep on using them even when it is no longer necessary. Abuse of prescription drugs has been probably one of the most often neglected types of chemical dependency considering that they can be legally acquired from legitimate pharmacies.
Some studies have shown that women are more susceptible to abusing prescription drugs, particularly sedatives, tranquilizers and anti-anxiety drugs. It is easy to become dependent on the effects of these medicines considering that they are able to numb the person from feeling emotional pain and other psychological issues. Unfortunately, just like other chemical substances, the “pleasurable” effects will only last for a short while, but the eventual effects are harmful and long-lived. Soon, the chemically dependent can experience detachment from social relationships, job or marital issues, more psychological problems, and even physiological concerns.
Trying to recover from prescription drug addiction without going through the formal recovery program is highly dangerous. Detoxification should only be carried out under the supervision of skilled professionals; otherwise, the safety of the substance-dependent would be at risk. New Creations Treatment has a Christian prescription drug addiction treatment program that assists patients, especially women, from the detoxification phase up to aftercare.
Process and Effects of Treatment
Individuals who are dependent on prescription drugs, but intend on freeing themselves from this life-threatening habit should undergo the process of Prescription Drug Addiction Treatment in a rehabilitation facility. Our recovery program is composed of the following processes:
- Continuing care – recovering patients need to be equipped with effective coping skills in order to successfully integrate themselves into society once again and these strategies are instilled during this phase.
Prescription drug dependence creates a lot of personal, emotional, and health problems. Fortunately, Prescription Drug Addiction Treatment is an effective program to counter all its negative impact. During the entire process, patients learn how to regain control over their lives and how to manage difficult situations in a healthy manner, among others.
The process of recovery from drug addiction is a long-term undertaking. Patients who completed all the steps required of their rehabilitation plan are not truly “done” – ever.
At the end of the day nobody, neither the counselors nor the patients can fully discount the possibility of relapse that is why getting by drug-free every day is critical. This is the reason why after undergoing formal Prescription Drug Addiction Treatment, New Creations Treatment is constantly in touch with the recovering patient for aftercare support such as the conduct of regular group therapy, support group meetings, and meditations.
If you are a woman currently struggling with prescription drug addiction, New Creations Treatment is the treatment facility for you. Our skilled and highly experienced counselors and health personnel understand that women have specific needs, struggles and expectations that other “gender-neutral” programs may not be able to provide. Get in touch with us immediately so you can readily start your recovery journey.
