Prescription Drug Addiction Treatment in Asheville

Even Doctor-Prescribed Drugs Can Be Addictive

When a doctor prescribes medications, they are taking a patient’s medical history, body type, and condition into account. Most of the time, they are able to create a medication plan that is safe for the patient. However, whether from physician error or a patient mistakenly deviating from the prescribed medication plan, addiction to prescription medication sometimes occurs. What was intended to help is now causing significant harm.

It is not a sign of “weakness” or “bad character” to become addicted to prescription medications. It can happen to anyone. The only thing that matters when it comes to addiction is receiving treatment and maintaining sobriety.

Located in a quiet spot near the Blue Ridge Mountains, Silver Ridge is a rehabilitation center designed to meet the needs of midlife adults. Our philosophy of care focuses on the individual. We strive to help our clients understand the cause of their addiction and learn how to accept stress and anxiety so that they can deal with these feelings in healthy ways.

When Does Prescription Use Become Abuse?

Painkillers, anxiety medications, and stimulants are some of the most commonly abused prescription drugs. These include medications such as:

When someone is prescribed medications, the physician should have crafted a plan that prevents the patient from building a tolerance to the drug. This way, they can keep taking the medication at regularly scheduled intervals and still feel the full effects. An addiction may be forming when someone starts taking these medications outside of their regularly scheduled routine. Trying to convince your doctor to refill a prescription by lying about a condition or attempting to obtain them illegally are also telltale signs of a problem.

Approaches to Treatment

Treatment for prescription drug addiction varies depending on what type of drug is being abused. It is usually recommended that a person check in to a detoxification center where they can safely purge the drug from their system. Detox is not addiction treatment, however, and after this phase it is important for the recovering person to undergo treatment at a facility equipped to handle the issue.

At Silver Ridge, we use acceptance and commitment therapy as the foundation for our programs. Many addictions stem from feelings of anxiety and stress. Our programs are designed to tackle these issues directly so that our clients can make positive decisions when they are tempted to relapse. We specifically focus on treatment for adults so that our clients can delve into their treatment amongst their peers.
