Prescription Drug Detox

People who are dependent on prescription drugs often go through a detoxification process every day. This happens whenever the body finishes processing the drugs they may have consumed and the dependents begin to get sober. Unfortunately this also begins an unpleasant experience of withdrawal symptoms that instantly forces these individuals to get back to consuming drugs to relieve themselves from the pain of withdrawal symptoms. In due time, these individuals begin to believe that they may not be able to survive without these drugs.

Causes of prescription drug dependency

A dependency on prescription drugs is usually caused by a chemical imbalance in the body, misconceptions about your health, post traumatic stress disorder and the stress of a certain recent event. At Reawakenings Wellness Center, our clinicians are specialized in providing comprehensive treatment for all of these causes. We approach each of these symptoms independently and provide treatment using a personalized therapy along with natural supplements to help your body cope with the situation. The treatment would begin with a comprehensive prescription drug detox that is supervised by medical professionals.

Addiction from overuse of prescription drugs

Physicians often provide their patients with a prescription to some highly addictive drugs to help patients with conditions such as insomnia, anxiety, depression and many other psychiatric problems that are cause due to an imbalance in the chemicals inside the brain. While these drugs may be helpful to the patient under certain conditions, they are also potentially very addictive when overused. In addition to this, the abuse of prescription drugs is not limited to any age. Surveys and reports reveal that over 35 million people in the U.S above the age of 12 have consumed prescription drugs at least once in their lifetime. As a result, it is clinically accessible to a wide range of people. Some people indulge and abuse of these drugs.

These drugs not only cause an addiction, but also lead to certain psychiatric problems. To help dependents with additional psychiatric issues, specialized training needs to be administered. Reawakenings Wellness Center is fully equipped to impart this form of education through our state-of-the-art facility and our clinicians. Our program focuses on counseling therapy and nutrition to help the dependent cope with prescription drug abuse. The main focus as in any other form of drug detox is to help combat the root cause of the addiction.
