Prescription Drug Abuse Treatment
Often More Than The Doctor Ordered
The abuse of prescription drugs has become almost commonplace in the U.S. and around the world. The story of prescription drug abuse often begins with an individual getting a painkiller prescribed for an injury or a benzodiazepine prescribed for anxiety. Not understanding the risks of addiction associated with the medication, coupled with the fact that prescriptions often require daily doses (or multiple per day), a chemical dependency can quickly take hold. Once the individual has become chemically dependent on a prescription drug, they must receive professional support to safely withdrawal via medically supervised detox. With prescription drugs, individuals with a dependency should not stop using cold turkey or experience withdrawal without medical supervision.
Developing A Strategy
Treatment and recovery for an addiction to prescription drugs take time. Our facility, located in the heart of the Ozark mountain range, provides an idyllic setting for the client’s first step on this road to recovery. Rustic luxury with all the modern amenities await. Our expert team of counselors and physicians, many of whom have personal experience with addiction and recovery, guide clients through the initial detox and inpatient treatment. Long-term planning and the development of personalized strategies for the first year and beyond are essential components of their time at Retreat at Sky Ridge.
An Ever-Expanding List
Our treatment services for prescription drug abuse extend beyond painkillers and anxiety-related medication. Our facility offers private, medically supervised detox, treatment, and long-term strategies for individuals addicted to all classes of prescription drugs.
Prescription drug addictions that we treat at Retreat at Sky Ridge include, but are not limited to:
- Sleep Aids
Evidence-based treatment practices are those techniques that have been developed and researched over time and have proven to be effective statistically. The evidence-based practices used at Retreat at Sky Ridge are comprehensive and adapted to the client’s unique situation while remaining flexible. Our holistic approach considers the client as a person — an individual and considers their unique experiences and circumstances. We combine that with time-tested, evidence-based practices to achieve powerful results in our clients’ lives.
A one-size-fits-all approach (that works) does not exist for the treatment of addiction or co-occurring disorders. When it comes to treatment and helping people with their addiction or co-occurring illnesses, everyone can benefit from Evidence-Based Treatment modalities.
In addition to our core treatments rooted in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and SMART Recovery, all of our recovery programs go beyond sobriety and focus on acquiring the health and skills needed to attain long-term recovery. Developing the mind and the body are the primary and most necessary foundations for succeeding in the initial recovery stages. The spiritual or creative aspects of the program are essential to long-term recovery.
We have developed our Health & Wellness component as an independent and complementary treatment to the core treatment services offered to combat this.
We ask that all clients embrace a life where they are fully functional and restored physically, mentally, and emotionally.
