Prescription drug addiction affects millions of Americans every year. There are so many types of medications that are given out to treat pain, mental disorders, attention deficit disorder, and a myriad of other ailments that are habit-forming and cause rapid physical dependencies, and often, the people prescribed these medications are not fully aware of the repercussions of using these prescriptions, trusting that the doctor knows what is best.

Prescription drug abuse may look like this:

  • Taking more of the medication than you were prescribed or taking it more often than you should be
  • Seeing different doctors and pharmacists or buying pills off the street to get more of the medication
  • Using the drugs in ways not intended by your doctor (crushing and snorting tablets, for example)
  • Buying or using other people’s medications that were not prescribed to you
  • Feeling withdrawal symptoms when you cannot get your prescription filled

Even if you are using your own prescription drugs correctly, following what the label says, your body may become dependent on having the drugs in your system and produce withdrawal symptoms when you attempt to stop taking them.

At Quantum Behavioral Health, we treat prescription drug addiction safely and effectively through our various addiction treatment programs, all of which offer customized substance abuse treatment plans that are tailored to each individual client.

Our treatment center and care providers are licensed through the State of New Jersey and are accredited through the Joint Commission, which means that the trusted doctors and therapists at our facilities uphold the highest quality standards within the addiction treatment industry. We also maintain a low therapist-to-client ratio to provide a much more intensive care experience that offers a personal level of attention for each individual in our care. Even if you have been through an outpatient rehab program in the past and have experienced a relapse afterward, it is important not to let this make you hesitant to try outpatient treatment again. Our team will do everything in their power to ensure you are safe and comfortable throughout your entire treatment stay at Quantum Behavioral Health Services, and our aftercare services will help you stay sober long after your time in treatment. Our aftercare services help clients move forward in life on a positive trajectory with things like relapse prevention programs, life skills programs, client advocacy, and much more.

In an integrated plan that uses behavioral therapy, treatments for mental health disorders, group therapy, family therapy, and more, you will be able to wean off of all drug addictions and learn to move forward in life on a positive trajectory with relapse prevention programs, life skills programs and more.

What Is Drug Rehab for Prescription Drugs Like?

Drug rehab for prescription drugs is no different than a typical drug rehab program, and high-quality treatment centers will still offer customized addiction treatment plans that are specific to your individual needs and unique circumstances. Drug rehab for prescription drugs also can encompass several levels of care including:

Intensive Outpatient Rehab (IOP)

The IOP at Quantum is a tailored outpatient program that has been created to suit the practical needs of our patients while still meeting their clinical rehabilitation needs. It is the first step back into regular life and is there to help create a balance without too much freedom as you return to work, school, family care, and other important life obligations. You will have a semi-structured program, with treatment provided on weekdays in the morning, in the afternoon, and in the evening, and sometimes on Saturdays as well. There are 12-step programs and employment support in the IOP, and drug testing is done to ensure you remain accountable throughout the recovery process.

Partial Care

Partial Care, commonly referred to as ‘PC’, is a transitional treatment program that is usually part of a comprehensive outpatient drug rehab program or treatment plan. While enrolled in a partial care program, you can likely balance work, school, and other responsibilities. PC often employs a holistic approach to healing, with strategies like mindfulness and yoga included alongside evidence-based treatments to help find a balance between the mind, body, and spirit and encourage overall wellness.

Outpatient Rehab

After completing an IOP program, you will likely still need to remain connected to certain aspects of your prescription drug rehab program, like coming to therapy appointments, peer groups, medication management protocols, and connections to support groups like SMART Recovery or 12-step groups. This is where an outpatient program comes in. With outpatient rehab, you can dictate how often you come in for treatments in a flexible treatment plan that can change and evolve with you as time goes on.

What To Expect During RX Rehab

While in a prescription substance abuse treatment program at Quantum, you will have access to several types of treatment as you work through underlying mental health, emotional, social, physical, and behavioral issues and learn new ways to live as a sober person in recovery.

Typical outpatient rehab programs can include:

  • Group therapy, individual therapy, and family therapy
  • Gender-specific group therapy
  • Didactic and psychoeducational lectures
  • Relapse prevention planning
  • Cognitive behavioral therapy
  • Rational emotive behavior therapy
  • Trauma-focused therapy (using seeking safety and trauma recovery, empowerment models)
  • 12-Step facilitation (Alcoholics Anonymous, Narcotics Anonymous, etc.)
  • SMART recovery programs
  • Motivational interviewing
  • Medication management
  • Trauma therapy
  • Music therapy
  • Holistic therapy
  • Didactic therapy
  • Psychotherapy
  • Psycho-educational therapy
  • Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR)

All of our masters-level therapists are trauma-sensitive. This means that while you are in our care, they will ensure you feel safe and listened to, without forcing you to do anything you do not want to do. Trauma-informed methodologies put client safety and care first, and they will be sure to answer any questions you have regarding your own treatment with the truth, collaborating with you on your treatment and obtaining your consent before going forward with anything.

Another important factor for many people addicted to prescription opioids, benzos, and other medications is mental health. Mental health disorders are often interconnected with substance abuse. People will abuse drugs and alcohol in order to self-medicate against symptoms of mental illness, and conversely, those who routinely misuse or are addicted to prescription drugs will exacerbate pre-existing or latent mental health issues. Common mental illnesses associated with addiction are:

  • Generalized anxiety disorder
  • Panic disorder
  • Codependency
  • Bipolar disorder
  • Major depression
  • Mood disorders
  • Schizophrenia
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder

Coming to Quantum for prescription drug addiction treatment includes dual diagnosis care for people with co-occurring mental health issues, a program that treats both issues at the same time in an integrated program, breaking the cycle.

While in our comfortable, safe, and 100% sober addiction treatment center, we will take care of daily chores like cooking, housekeeping, and laundry, so you can concentrate on your recovery, the healing process, and maintaining sobriety. Our programs offer catered meals and an assortment of snacks that are always available. This way, you can focus on your own wellness without worrying about day-to-day inconveniences and maintenance.

Top Abused Prescription Drugs

When it comes to substance use disorders and drug treatment, the most commonly abused prescription drugs are:

  • Opioid painkillers – medications like codeine, morphine, fentanyl, Percocet, and OxyContin are often prescribed for pain from surgery, injury, or even for coughs and mild pain. These drugs are highly addictive and often abused and sold on the street
  • Sleep medicine – medications like zolpidem (Ambien), zaleplon (Sonata), and eszopiclone (Lunesta) are given to help people sleep better, but you will quickly become dependent on them to be able to sleep at all
  • Benzodiazepines – sedatives that are often prescribed for panic attacks, anxiety, and sleep issues. These are often overprescribed without proper medical oversight. Alprazolam (Xanax), lorazepam (Ativan), clonazepan (Klonopin), and diazepam (Valium) are common benzos.
  • Barbiturates – these are sedatives that help with sleep issues and anxiety-like pentobarbital (Nembutal) and secobarbital (Seconal)
  • Amphetamines – these are central nervous system stimulants like Adderall, Adderall XR, Dextroamphetamine, and Mydasis that are prescribed for conditions like ADHD, popular for abuse because they boost energy and alertness.
  • Dextromethorphan (DXM) – found in cough medications, DXM has a psychoactive element to it that can get you high and cause hallucinations. This is commonly abused by youth as it is easily found in medicine cabinets.
  • Antidepressant drugs – Zoloft, Prozac, Lexapro, and Paxil are commonly prescribed antidepressant medications that cause physical and psychological addictions, even when taken as prescribed.
