WHAT IS RX REHAB LIKE?
Every addiction journey is unique and treatment plans at Recovery Unplugged reflect that. Prescription drug rehab will look different for each person. We offer several levels of care that offer varying degrees of intensity and commitment and several evidence-based and holistic treatment options to meet each client where they need to heal.
Certain prescription medications, such as benzodiazepines, cause extreme and dangerous withdrawal symptoms which require medically supervised care while detoxing.
Our medically assisted drug detox includes 24/7 supervision from board-certified doctors and nurses who will monitor your vitals to ensure detox is going as planned. They are also able to administer FDA-approved medications to ease cravings and withdrawals, which can make the entire process much more comfortable than if you went about it on your own. Medically assisted drug detox is also a good option for those who have attempted drug detox on their own and quickly relapsed because of temptations or to stop withdrawals. Drug and alcohol detox has helped many successfully remove their physical dependence on substance abuse.
Once you have detoxed, either at Recovery Unplugged, another treatment facility or on your own, you transition into drug rehab. Depending on your level of care will determine how many hours a day or week you will dedicate to your recovery and whether you will stay at the treatment facility or at home.
Inpatient residential treatment will require you to stay at the treatment facility for the duration of this stage of your program, and your days will be highly structured around addiction treatments, plus some free time. Outpatient drug rehab in Northern Virginia will require you to go home or a sober living facility at the end of the day and dedicate a certain amount of hours a week to coming into the rehab center for addiction therapies. For all levels of care, you will participate in individual therapies, group therapy, family therapy, holistic treatments, and much more. You will be surrounded by others who are on a similar path as you, which can create a supportive and motivational environment.
WHAT TO EXPECT dURING rx rEHAB
Prescription drug rehab is very similar to drug rehab, with personalized treatment plans made up of several forms of evidence-based therapies and holistic treatments. Some therapies, activities, and skill training you can expect during prescription rehab include medication-assisted treatment (MAT), cognitive behavioral therapy, and dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT). Rational Emotive Behavioral Therapy (REBT), dual diagnosis treatment if co-occurring disorders are present, EMDR, relapse prevention, life skills training, vocational training, group therapy, family therapy, trauma-informed therapy, physical fitness, off-site activities, and 12-step programming.
Entering inpatient residential treatment, even for a short period of time, can greatly increase your chances of successful recovery. Inpatient rehab allows you to fully immerse yourself into your recovery in a drug and alcohol-free, controlled environment away from outside stressors or influences. During inpatient treatment, you will stay at the treatment facility, and your days will be highly structured and your schedule filled to include all your addiction therapies and activities.
We understand that inpatient treatment may not be for everyone. Outpatient treatment is available as a step down from inpatient rehab, for milder addictions, or for those who need to continue taking care of work, school, or home obligations. Depending on your level of outpatient treatment, you will be required to participate for several hours a week at our treatment center for addiction therapies. Outpatient treatment can help you reintegrate back into real life while having adequate support and allowing you to apply what you have learned in drug rehab actively.
HOW LONG DOES RX REHAB IN Northern Virginia LAST?
The length of addiction treatment at Recovery Unplugged in Northern Virginia varies from person to person. Long-standing addiction, severe addictions, and addictions with co-occurring disorders will all require a longer stay. If you start with medically assisted detox, that stage will last about five to seven days, but it can be longer in some cases. Residential inpatient treatment can vary from two to four weeks. However, we do have longer programs lasting 30, 60, or 90 days. Our partial hospitalization program (PHP) requires several hours of participation every day and generally lasts between 10 to 15 days. An intensive outpatient program (IOP) typically lasts from 10 to 30 days. Addiction recovery requires lifelong management, and you are not cured when the treatment program ends. Aftercare programs and alumni programs are in place to help you keep active in recovery and have adequate life-long support.
TOP ABUSED PRESCRIPTION DRUGS
There are several prescription medications with a potential for abuse and addiction, including Oxycodone, Vicodin, Ritalin, Morphine, Xanax, Klonopin, Fentanyl, and Valium. Sleep medications may not cause the same types of a behavioral and psychological addiction as other medications, but sleep medications like Ambien, Sonata, and Lunesta can cause physical dependence. Some of the top abused prescription medications include:
Opioids are prescribed for pain management but can quickly cause physical dependence. Often, prescription opioid dependence leads to harder illicit drug use if not dealt with. Also, users sometimes will combine opioids with other drugs or alcohol in an attempt to get a greater higher. Comprehensive treatment plans are required to break the physical, psychological, and behavioral factors of opioid addiction.
Prescription stimulants include Adderall, Ritalin, and Dexedrine, which are usually prescribed to treat ADHD and sleep disorders like narcolepsy. However, they have high abuse potential in people without these disorders and can lead to medical health issues primarily affecting the cardiovascular system. People who misuse stimulants usually start in an attempt to lose weight or help them study, which is why stimulant use disorders are more common among college-age individuals.
The most commonly abused prescription depressants are barbiturates and benzodiazepines, which are used to treat insomnia and anxiety. They can be very effective in treating these disorders; however, they are also highly addictive even when used as directed. There are also people who abuse these medications on purpose by mixing them with other depressants like alcohol to enhance their euphoric effects. Often, dual diagnosis programs are needed to treat depressant addiction.
One of the most commonly abused over-the-counter medications is cough syrups with dextromethorphan (DXM). DXM can produce mind-altering effects similar to PCP and ketamine in excessive amounts. When taken in large doses, DXM can cause increased heart rate and blood pressure and even lead to severe respiratory depression.
