Because it’s usually administered by a physician, prescription medication is often considered to be safer than other types of drugs. However, prescription drug addiction is a major problem that kills more people than all street drugs combined. Prescription drug rehab is a helpful tool for those who find themselves facing addiction to a prescribed substance.

People who are prescribed medication for a given ailment don’t consume that substance with the intention of getting addicted. They’re just normal people who want to feel better. However, they sometimes find that the prescribed dosage just isn’t getting the job done. As a result, they take more than the prescription states, and before long they find themselves dependent on the drug. Worse yet, because people are merely taking a prescribed drug, it’s very hard for outsiders to spot a problem.

Prescription drug rehab exists for people who know they have a problem and need help facing their addictions. Facilities that offer treatment for prescription medication are similar to rehab centers that help people with addictions to street drugs; in fact, many facilities offer both.

Since there are so many prescription drug rehab centers around the country, it’s difficult to definitively state which one is best. However, there are some important factors that you should look for as you seek treatment for yourself or a loved one.

One of the most vital factors of any attempt at treating addiction is a medically supervised detox. A top-notch prescription drug rehab center should ensure a safe and painless detox. Although some individuals want to get clean on their own, it’s actually very dangerous; it can lead to worse medical problems or even death. Medically supervised detoxes will ensure that treatment begins in a safe and manageable fashion.

Another significant part of any reputable treatment center is a robust aftercare program. While avoiding prescription medication in rehab is one thing, it’s much more difficult to do so when the individual leaves treatment and is faced with the situation that led them to fall into addiction. Aftercare programs help people after they leave the facility so that they have the support system necessary to relearn life as they go. Aftercare helps prevent relapse and gives individuals a sense of security, and it’s a must for anyone who seriously wants to kick their addictions.

Prescription drug rehab is the best option available for anyone who feels they’re losing their grip on their use of prescription medication. A stellar reputation, a medically supervised detox, aftercare and testimonials are a great starting place as you look for the best possible facility for you or your loved ones.
