How to Detox Off Prescription Drugs

 

There is a common misconception that prescription drugs are safe because they come from a doctor and are not “illegal” or found on the streets. Like any drug, strong prescription medications can be very addictive and lead to a physical dependence. Even with a prescription, users sometimes take more than the recommended amount, which is often the initial spark to addiction. If you or a loved one is addicted to prescription drugs, full recovery is an option. Medically monitored detox is the first step to getting clean, and professional treatment can truly turn your life around. Our drug and alcohol treatment center in Pompano Beach explains how to safely detox off prescription drugs and how to fully recover.

What to Expect During Prescription Pill Detox

Detox can be defined as the process by which toxins are completely removed from the body. The detox process may vary per person, depending on the type of drug abused, length of time abused, and the severity of the dependence. The most successful way to detox from any kind of prescription medication is a medically supervised prescription pill detox program. There can be serious complications when detoxing at home, and the safest way to detox is through medical care. The discomfort and pain experienced during this time should be monitored under medical professionals who know how to manage your symptoms.

Withdrawal symptoms will vary, depending on the type of prescription medication abused. The most frequent abused substances include opiates, benzos, and amphetamines. Your body will have a strong reaction when these medications are suddenly stopped, and this discomfort is classified as withdrawal. Managing the withdrawal symptoms on your own can be extremely dangerous, and can lead to you using again. Without the proper care, the vicious cycle of addiction will unfortunately continue.

After medically monitored detox is successfully completed, an assessment should be performed in order to determine the necessary treatment that this individual will need moving forward. Customized care will guarantee a successful recovery journey, and our prescription pill treatment in Pompano Beach is here to help you regain control.
