About Prescription Drug Addicttion
Prescription drug abuse affects X many people in the
United States alone. Prescription drug abuse occurs when
an individual is using their medication for purposes other
than what is was prescribed for such as getting high or
for gaining better concentration. When someone is
addicted to a medication they must continue to use it
regardless of the harm it is causing to them physically or
mentally. In these circumstances, prescription drug abuse
can take over someone’s life and in some cases bring it
to an end. This doesn’t have to happen though. For those
abusing prescription drugs, help is available. By seeking
treatment, a person can regain their old self. Many
treatment centers will combine the use of medication and
therapy to provide the best possible recovery and ensure
that it lasts.

Prescription Drug Abuse
One of the most rapidly increasing substance abuse
concerns nationwide is that of misuse of prescription
drugs. There are a number of people who are given
prescription medication for healing purposes but many
end up abusing them. If someone is taking more of a
medication than prescribed, taking someone else’s
medication or using their medication to get high, it
means they are abusing it. Some of the most commonly
abused medications include stimulants, opioids and
benzodiazepines. Abusing prescription medication can
have a host of consequences from forming a dependence
on the drug to developing health issues as a result of
abusing too much of the medication. Whether a person is
starting to abuse a medication or is fully addicted to it,
help should be sought sooner rather than later.

Stimulant Abuse
Stimulant abuse involves the abuse of medications that
methylphenidate like Ritalin or Concerta. Normally
stimulants are prescribed to treat issues such as attentiondeficit hyperactivity disorder by creating a calming or
focusing effect. Unfortunately these stimulant
medications can be abused to help a person lose weight,
perform better in school or just to get the effect of the
euphoria they can create.
Signs that a person is abusing stimulants can include:
• An increased body temperature
• Increased energy
• Decreased fatigue and appetite
• Increased blood pressure
• Euphoria

Danger Of Prescription Drug Abuse
As can be expected there are multiple dangers attached to
abusing prescription medications.
Prescription abuse can harm a person’s physical and
psychological health. In some cases abuse of medications
can lead to the development of mood disorders such as
anxiety or depression. It can also cause lowered cognitive
ability, memory problems, heart problems and other issues
with a person’s organs.
There is also the possibility of a person’s prescription abuse
leading to legal complications. If the individual is caught
taking another’s medication, he or she could face charges of
prescription fraud forgery. Those under the influence are
also more likely to engage in criminal behavior.
There is also danger attached to a person withdrawing from
these medications. Withdrawal symptoms can include
perspiration, agitation, nausea and more. Those
withdrawing from opioids could encounter nausea, vomiting
and pain in their bones. Stimulants withdrawal could cause
exhaustion and sleep problems. In most cases it is better for
a person to find an effective detox program to help them
through the withdrawal process.

Treatment Program
One of the most alarming trends in recent years has been the
growth of prescription drug abuse. Many are now turning to
this form of medication misuse, as some are under the false
impression that this is a safer alternative than using illicit
drugs. Yet there can be numerous dangers associated with
such substances, including the development of physical
dependence. Additional health dangers such as overdose,
especially when medications are combined with other
substances, are also possible. Much like with the abuse and
addiction to illicit drugs it is often best that an individual
who wishes to break free of their destructive habits seek
recovery through a treatment program. Some may be
hesitant or resistant to accept treatment. This can be
understandable, as addiction could have progressed to the
point that the person is fearful to undergo withdrawals. Yet
the odds of success can be much greater if the person in
enrolled in a professional treatment program. Many
effective treatment programs will utilize a safe detox
treatment, medication if necessary and different forms of
therapy to provide their clients with a thorough and long
lasting recovery.

Detox and withdrawal will always be the first step to
recovery. This step may often be what keeps an individual
from pursuing a life of sobriety as it can be uncomfortable
for many as the substance leaves their body.
In some cases a person can bear down and get through their
withdrawal at home but this is not suggested. It is often
better to seek help with a detox program. Hospitals can
provide detox services and some treatment providers have
them available too. A detox program will keep an individual
safe while they go through the withdrawal process, marking
the state of their mental and physical well-being and helping
to ease the process with medication when necessary.

Once a person has gone through detox they can truly focus
on their recovery.

Therapy Options
Much like how there are multiple options available for
medication that can help with recovery, there are also
different types of therapy that can aid someone in their
pursuit of sobriety. Individual and group therapies are
available to help clients with their treatment. Some, such as
Cognitive-behavioral therapy, will seek to help the client
identify the connection between their thoughts and
behaviors and allow them to change their thinking to
support less destructive behaviors. Other therapies will help
clients identify harmful patterns in their day-to-day living
and guide them to change their lifestyle so that situations
and social groups related to prescription abuse can be more
easily avoided. Still other forms of therapy can help a
person focus on building life skills, dealing with past
trauma, coping with symptoms of a mental health disorder
and so on. There are even therapies that focus on one’s
physical health such as recreational therapy, yoga, diet and
nutritional planning and so on. Ultimately, what therapies
are suggested for a client will depend solely upon his or her
individual circumstances.
