California Prescription Drug Rehab

If you or a loved one is hooked on prescription pills, there’s no better place to go for California prescription drug rehab than SouthCoast Recovery in Dana Point, California. SouthCoast Recovery has received national attention for its specialized program tailored to treat those struggling with prescription drug addiction. Whether it’s opiate-based painkillers such as Vicodin, Hydrocodone, Codeine, Morphine, OxyContin, OxyCodone; benzodiazepines such as Valium or Xanax or stimulants like Adderall or Ritalin, we can help.

California prescription drug rehab is a relatively recent development that coincides with the rising trend in prescription drug abuse. This is particularly being seen among teenagers and young adults who engage in “pharming” parties where party-goers add whatever prescription drugs they’ve brought to a community bowl. For adults, prescription drug abuse can remain undetected for long periods of time typically because of the way in which the drugs are procured. Getting drugs from a physician instead of a street dealer has a way of bypassing the stigma associated with being a drug addict and adds to the symptom of denial.

SouthCoast Recovery is on the leading edge of California prescription drug rehab programs that address psychological aspects specific to prescription drug addiction. Labeled the “white collar” addiction, people may invent symptoms to procure prescriptions, doctor shop, steal prescription pads, buy in bulk on the Internet or find pill dealers on the street. Because many of the prescription painkillers that are abused are opiate based, there’s also the chance that it could lead to the street equivalent, heroin.

When choosing a California prescription drug rehab program, keep in mind that there are aspects of prescription drug addiction that need to be specifically addressed. Detox can be dangerous and for this reason, medical supervision is highly recommended. SouthCoast Recovery offers state licensed medical detox, specialized inpatient programs tailored to prescription drug addiction, transitional living following inpatient and a combination of clinical and holistic therapies to help overcome the physical and psychological effects of prescription drug addiction.
