Prescription Addiction?

Prescription drug abuse has become the most dominant addiction threat of the modern era. For the last five years, prescription-related overdose deaths have surpassed those of heroin and cocaine combined. Although they are effective in the treatment of depression and anxiety, prescription medications such as Xanax, Valium, and Adderall can also be incredibly deadly. New Paradigm Recovery offers modern, cutting-edge medication addiction treatment at our Tysons facility.

Treatment for prescription abuse is a delicate situation best left to qualified professionals. Both the detox and rehabilitation aspects of the process call for an experienced, knowledgeable, and balanced approach. New Paradigm Recovery’s facility specializes in pain medication treatment and provide individualized, comprehensive care for all clients.

Medication Addiction Can Happen to Anyone

Very often, people who never had any intention of abusing drugs of any kind unwittingly grow dependent on medication because they deviate from a physician-prescribed regimen or fall victim to dishonest and irresponsible physicians.

One of the bitter ironies of prescription addiction is that it winds up leaving victims in more pain than when they began taking the pills. Common effects of medication addiction include depression, respiratory problems, heart failure, intestinal distress, and even death.

Comprehensive Medication Addiction Treatment

Prescriptions are more commonly encountered in everyday life than narcotics such as cocaine and heroin. As a consequence, medication addiction rehabilitation must incorporate the development of resistance exercises to diminish the chance of a client’s relapse.

Through focused group and individualized counseling - as well as a specialized combination of treatment therapies - clients learn to modify their behavior and change their attitudes toward prescription drugs. If necessary, we incorporate family and loved ones into the recovery process and work toward repairing the lifestyle damage that clients have experienced in the wake of their addictions. Our approach rebuilds clients from the ground up so that, over time, they can again learn to manage their own lives.

Beginning Treatment in Medical Detoxification

Prescription addiction treatment begins with an expert, sensitive, and medically supervised detox. Benzodiazepine withdrawal often produces painful, sickening, and dangerous symptoms, so it's imperative that detox is professionally managed. Our clinicians work closely with medical detox centers to track progress, offer compassionate and responsible symptom relief, and address any medical emergencies.

Whenever appropriate, following medical detox our staff will administer medication to mitigate the discomfort associated with the withdrawal process. Once the client has completed detox, they're ready to move on to the next stage of their treatment.
