Commonly Abused Prescription Drugs

While there are dozens of prescription drugs that people abuse every day, the most commonly abused prescription drugs include:

  • Opioids
  • CNS (central nervous system) depressants
  • Barbiturates
  • Benzodiazepines
  • Stimulants

No matter the prescription drug that is being abused, our ARIA prescription drug detox program can get you started on the road to a lifestyle free from addiction.

Prescription Drug Detox

At the beginning of the prescription drug detox process, treatment experts will collect information from you about what drugs you have been taking so that they can develop appropriate detox programs and provide meaningful help. The detox process can be quite different depending on the drugs the person has taken, so it’s important to be precise.

In an inpatient detox program, people have access to medical staff 24 hours per day, seven days per week. Since you’ll be living in facilities where drug and alcohol use is not permitted, the chance for relapse is eliminated. While detox programs can take place in many settings, in-patient detox programs like the one at ARIA are beneficial if you suffer from any of the following in addition to your addiction:

  • History of seizures
  • Serious medical complications
  • Previous history of outpatient addiction care
  • Mental illness
  • Lack of social support
  • Poly-drug use
  • Opiate dependence

Detox Is Challenging

People who are addicted to prescription drugs and recognize that they need help may consider detox often, but committing to it is the hardest part. Each time they get close to getting clean and allow their bodies to start eliminating the need for the high is progress towards sobriety. The truth is that the detox process is not easy. Detox is uncomfortable and filled with all kinds of distress. The unease that people experience can cause them to return to drug use, just to make the pain of detox stop. It can get to the point where they may truly believe that they’ll never survive without the drugs.

Therapy Programs After a Detox Program

Abusing substances can alter the way your brain produces chemicals. When you’re taking a drug on a routine basis, your body adapts to those chemicals and always expects them. It can be hard to overcome addiction when you feel off due to not taking anything.

It can be hard to predict what it will feel like once you start a detox, which is why getting help from trained professionals like the dedicated team at ARIA is key. After you go through our prescription drug detox program, the next step is to get the treatment you need to stay sober and build a plan for lifelong recovery and sobriety.
