Prescription drug addiction treatment and rehab programs combine different recovery services, supportive environments, and counseling. Depending on the specific needs of the individual, the treatment programs will vary.
Treatment is usually categorized into:
1. Cognitive Behavior Therapy – which helps patients understand the root causes of what drove them to abuse drugs
2. Holistic Therapies – which focus on the mind, body, and spirit and is used to achieve physical healing
Rehab can consist of either inpatient, outpatient, or intensive outpatient rehab.
Inpatient Therapy: You will stay at a treatment facility with access to counseling, group therapy, and other recreational therapies.
Outpatient Therapy: For some who may need an outpatient program due to home or work needs, this option allows one to commute to treatment with a set schedule and access to therapy, groups, and other services.
Intensive Outpatient Therapy: Most IOP programs require an attendance minimum of nine hours every week for treatment. This can be split between either a full week or several days throughout the week. Intensive outpatient treatment can last as long as needed.
Prescription drug abusers can receive treatment and recover. While prescription drugs have the power to derail a person’s life, substance abuse recovery is possible. Treatment is often the first step to reclaiming a life worth living.
