Prescription Drug Addiction
Why Treatment for Co-Occurring Disorders is Important
Prescription medication abuse has been in the headlines since the late 1990s with the rise of the opiate epidemic and invaded households across the country. While opiate medications are the most common addictions, many different prescription narcotics are a high risk for abuse. Almost all of these medications may require medical detoxification through a gradual taper to avoid severe and harmful withdrawal symptoms. Some medications that fit this category are:
- Stimulants- Adderal, Vyvance, Riddilin
- Barbiturates- Phenobarbital, Secobarbital, Amobarbital
- Opiates-Oxycontin, Roxycodone, Hydrocodone
- Benzodiazepines- Xanax, Kolonipin, Ativan, Valium
How We Can Help Those Addicted to Prescription Drugs at Our Orange County Rehab Center
These medications can be found in cabinets across the country and brought into family homes from pharmacies and across borders. The greatest danger has come in counterfeit medicines pressed and sold on the street. These pills may closely resemble the real thing. Still, they could be mixed with different binders and even more dangerous substances to boost the effect. Fentanyl has become a common substance found in pills, contributing to overdoses. Without proper testing and precautions, any drugs bought on the black market could have a lethal concoction of narcotics, suddenly ending somebody’s life.
