Prescription Drug Detox

Your Path to Prescription Drug Addiction Recovery Starts Here

In the United States, various interests have led us to believe that there is a pill for everything. While it’s true that prescription medications represent a vital resource in the long-term management, and frequent alleviation, of pain and sickness, it’s also true that it’s incredibly easy to develop dependency on many of these medications. The National Institute on Drug Abuse reports that in 2017, an estimated 18 million people (more than 6 percent of those aged 12 and older) had misused such medications at least once, and these rates persist year after year. This is a public health issue that spans all age groups, cultures and socioeconomic backgrounds, and the longer prescription abuse persists, the more dependent users are likely to become.
When prescription drug abuse rises to the level of dependency and manifests in physical and psychological withdrawal symptoms, users may need medically supervised prescription drug detox to stabilize their brain chemistry. Recovery Unplugged offers compassionate, effective medical detoxification and withdrawal management at facilities across the country to help our clients achieve independence and lasting recovery from dependency. Call us today at 1 (855) 384-5794 to start the healing process.

The Delicate Balance of Prescription Drug Detox

Many who wind up abusing prescription drugs start by taking these drugs for a legitimate medical condition, whether it’s extreme pain, anxiety, depression, ADHD or others. In the case of opioids, for example, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports that there over 58 prescriptions were per 100 Americans, representing a total of more than 191 million prescriptions. In 16 percent of US counties, enough opioid prescriptions were dispensed for every person to have one.

Prescription drug detox is different than that of alcohol or drugs that are considered illicit because many who become dependent suffer from underlying ailments that initially warrant prescription-based interventions. This means that prescription drug detox must not only address the immediate medical conditions associated with the withdrawal period, it must also address withdrawal’s impact on the original condition for which users started taking prescriptions in the first place: severe chronic pain, different types of mental illness, etc.

Recovery Unplugged provides comprehensive prescription drug detox that addresses the full breadth of clients’ medical needs. We offer medically assisted withdrawal management services for all types of prescription drugs, including opioid painkillers, benzodiazepines (benzos), prescription stimulants and many more.
