Rx Drug Treatment at a Residential Rehab Center

As more prescription drugs enter the market every day, more people are becoming dependent and addicted to prescription drugs. If you suspect that you or someone you love may have a problem with prescription drugs, we can help you find the resources necessary to get help. Use this guide to see if you may need assistance, and call our toll-free helpline if you have any questions or would like to speak with an experienced counselor about your situation.

Commonly Abused Prescription Drugs

The National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) lists the follow as the three main types of prescription drugs that are commonly abused:

  • Depressants including benzodiazepine drugs which are often used to treat anxiety. These may include Klonopin, Xanax, Valium or clonazepam.
  • Opiate drugs used to treat pain. These may include OxyContin, oxycodone, Percocet or morphine.
  • Stimulants used to treat narcolepsy and attention deficit disorders. These may include Ritalin, Adderall or Focalin.

Symptoms of a Prescription Drug Problem

You may not be certain if your prescription drug use or a loved one’s prescription use is serious enough to warrant treatment. The following signs indicate that it may be time to seek treatment:

  • You take more medication than you were prescribed or you take any medicine that was not prescribed to you at all
  • You have experienced negative side effects of drug use, yet you continue to use the drugs
  • You combine drugs or take drugs with alcohol
  • You plan to quit using drugs, or you attempt to quit using prescription drugs without success
  • You lie to your doctor or go to more than one doctor to obtain prescriptions
  • You have done anything illegal, like forge prescriptions or steal, to obtain drugs
  • A loved one or friend has told you that you have a problem
  • You take increasing amounts of the medication to feel the original effects
