Prescription Drug Rehab

SouthCoast Recovery is the leading drug rehab center for prescription drugs in Orange County, California. Prescription drug addiction is a growing problem. Often referred to as a “white-collar addiction”, people struggling with prescription drug addiction may not view it as an addiction because they get their drugs from a doctor rather than a drug dealer. But the psychological addiction resulting from opiate based painkillers (Vicodin, Oxycontin, Codeine) or benzodiazepines (Valium, Klonopin) bears little difference to someone who is hooked on street drugs.

If you are addicted to prescription drugs such as painkillers, tranquilizers, downers or stimulants, SouthCoast Recovery has a specialized prescription drug addiction treatment program to help you get your life back on track.

Why Drug Rehab for Prescription Drugs?

Detoxing from prescription drugs can be painful and even dangerous. Sudden withdrawal from certain prescription drugs that act on the Central Nervous System (CNS), such as benzodiazepines (Valium, Klonopin), can result in seizures. Medical detox is always recommended for prescription drug addiction. Once the physical body is stabilized, true healing can begin.

Because many prescription drugs with the highest potential for addiction are painkillers or anti-anxiety medications that work to reduce anxiety and produce a euphoric feeling, it's likely that individuals going through withdrawal will feel some anxiety followed by depression. SouthCoast Recovery offers a specialized prescription drug treatment plan that addresses symptoms specific to prescription drug withdrawal with acupuncture, herbal remedies, massage and the supportive therapies of clinical and behavioral support.

Drug Rehab for Opiate-based Prescription Drugs

Prescription drugs that carry a high risk of drug addiction and for which medical detox is recommended include opiate-based painkillers such as Vicodin, Hydrocodone, OxyContin, Morphine, Codeine and benzodiazepines (benzos), such as Valium, Klonopin, Xanax and any other anti-anxiety medications.

Medical advancements in the treatment of opiate-based addictions include prescription medications intended to interrupt the euphoric effects, such as methadone, naltrexone and buprenorphine. These medications also help minimize the withdrawal effects. SouthCoast Recovery also has an acupuncturist on staff with a Masters in Oriental Medicine to help reduce the discomfort associated with withdrawal.

Drug Rehab for CNS Prescription Drugs

It cannot be emphasized enough that quitting benzodiazepines, barbiturates and other prescription drugs that act on the Central Nervous System without a proper medical detox is extremely dangerous. Medical supervision is necessary to ensure the body is physically stabilized and not in danger of going into seizure. Please consult your doctor or call us if you have any questions about cutting down on your intake of these types of prescription drugs. Professional assistance is available 24/7 and can help you make the right decision for your health and well-being.
