Prescription Drug Rehab in San Diego CA

After marijuana and alcohol, prescription drugs are the most frequently abused type of drugs in the U.S.  Although the dangers of prescription drug abuse have become more widely recognized in the last few decades, the myth that prescription drugs are safer than illicit street drugs still persists. The truth is completely opposite, as prescription drugs (especially fentanyl) have been the leading cause of the overdose epidemic that is now the number one killer of adults aged 18 to 45 (surpassing suicide and car accidents).

Even beyond the potential outcome of a fatal overdose, the abuse of prescription drugs can cause severe mental, emotional and physical consequences. In many cases, a prescription drug addiction treatment program like ours in San Diego can help.

Prescription Drug Addiction is Progressive

Prescription drugs can be highly addictive. If taken for a long period of time, they will change the way the brain functions. Withdrawal symptoms develop because the abuser’s body becomes accustomed to, and reliant upon, functioning with the prescription medication.

Some of the more common prescription drugs abused are:

  • Fentanyl
  • Alprazolam (Xanax)
  • Hydrocodone (Vicodin)
  • Oxycodone (OxyContin)
  • Oxymorphone (Opana)
  • Adderall
  • Ativan
  • Klonopin
  • Ketamine
  • Diazepam (Valium)

Prolonged use of prescription medications eventually changes the brain in fundamental and long-lasting ways, explaining why people cannot just quit on their own and why treatment at a rehab center in one of our programs is essential.

Opioids (Fentanyl, OxyContin) are Highly Addictive

Addiction to a particular opioid called fentanyl has been extremely common in recent years, and its hyper-potency is the primary culprit behind the drug overdoses that have grown to record numbers in this country. enables them to experience a rapid and intense euphoria that does not occur when taken as designed and prescribed.

Fentanyl is all too often combined with other street drugs (like heroin and cocaine). The result is a deadly concoction of unknown strength.

Heroin has experienced a shocking resurgence in popularity in the last 20 years due to the frequency with which abusers of opioid medications (like fentanyl) transition to heroin use due to it’s relative availability and lower cost. This pattern frequently ends with a fatal overdose.
