Prescription Medication Addiction Treatment and Rehabilitation Center In New Jersey

Prescription medication abuse is a critical public health issue, with 6% of Americans over the age of 12 misusing these drugs annually, according to the National Center For Drug Abuse Statistics. At Better Life Recovery and Wellness, we address the growing concern of prescription medication addiction through targeted, specialized treatment programs. Our approach is designed to help individuals struggling with the abuse of opioids, stimulants, and sedatives regain control over their lives in a supportive and understanding environment.

Understanding Prescription Medication Addiction  

Prescription medication addiction refers to the compulsive use of prescription drugs outside of a doctor’s recommendations. It often begins as legitimate medication use for conditions like pain, anxiety, or attention disorders but can evolve into dependency due to the potent effects of these drugs. Over time, this can lead to increased tolerance, withdrawal symptoms upon cessation, and a persistent desire to obtain and use the drugs despite harmful consequences.

Signs and Symptoms of Someone Needing Treatment for Prescription Medication Addiction  

Recognizing the signs and symptoms of prescription medication addiction is critical for early intervention. Key indicators include:

  • Increased Dosage: Taking more of the medication than prescribed or for longer periods than intended.
  • Withdrawal Symptoms: Experiencing physical or psychological symptoms such as shakes, insomnia, anxiety, or depression when not taking the drug.
  • Doctor Shopping: Visiting multiple doctors to obtain additional prescriptions.
  • Neglect of Responsibilities: Failing to meet personal, professional, or academic obligations due to drug use.
  • Social Withdrawal: Isolating from family and friends or abandoning hobbies and activities once enjoyed.

The Importance of Seeking Treatment for Prescription Medication Addiction  

Seeking treatment for prescription medication addiction is vital due to the physical and psychological risks associated with long-term use and dependency:

  • Health Risks: Long-term abuse of prescription medications can lead to serious health issues, including organ damage, increased risk of accidents, and overdose.
  • Mental Health: Many prescription drugs, particularly opioids and benzodiazepines, can exacerbate or induce mental health disorders when used inappropriately.
  • Quality of Life: Addiction can drastically reduce quality of life, affecting relationships, job performance, and financial stability.
  • Preventing Overdose: Treatment reduces the risk of potentially fatal overdoses, especially with opioids and sedatives, by managing usage and providing safer alternatives.
