Prescription Drug Rehab in Seattle, WA
Prescription drugs are often abused because they are technically legal and easily accessible. A person may start using the prescription drugs appropriately but then slip into a cycle of physical and emotional addiction. Island Assessment and Counseling offers prescription drug rehab for the residents of Seattle, Bellevue, Issaquah and the surrounding areas of Washington State.
What is Prescription Drug Rehab?
At some point in our lives, we may be prescribed medications that contain powerful ingredients for pain management and other medical conditions. When used as prescribed, these medications help us heal and rest. Unfortunately, some people experience intense or chronic pain that greatly diminishes their quality of life. A person may take more of the medications than prescribed which can lead to abuse and addiction. Prescription drug rehab helps people dependent on painkillers and other prescriptions find new ways to manage their pain and improve life in general.
Synthetic Drug Rehab
Also known as “designer” drugs, synthetic drugs represent another possible source of addiction. These drugs are designed to provide highs in combination with addiction. Two common forms of synthetic drugs are ecstasy and bath salts. Because these drugs are not prescribed, they may be manufactured with a variety of ingredients and may have extreme side effects that damage the body. Island Assessment and Counseling offers synthetic drug rehab to help those who abuse or are addicted to these designer drugs.
Painkillers are meant to help use recover and manage pain, but these are the most commonly abused prescription drugs. The ingredients include powerful drugs, such as morphine, that induce immediate highs and cause a person to become addicted. Painkillers can be injected, snorted and taken orally.
What is Prescription Drug Abuse?
When a person begins to use a prescription medication outside of what is prescribed by a physician or mental health professional, abuse soon follows. Prescription drug abuse also results from people purchasing prescription medications from another person.
What are the Signs of Prescription Drug Abuse?
In addition to the signs of general drug abuse, someone who is addicted to or abuses prescription drugs:
- Takes the medications in greater quantities or more frequently than prescribed
- Requires frequent refills (usually in less than 30 days)
- Asks friends and family to help them acquire their drug of choice through illegal or fraudulent means
- Experiences sudden and extreme mood swings, especially when they are close to being out of their prescription medication
- Loses interest in work, personal relationships, family and other pastimes
People who abuse prescription drugs may also be in the hospital several times for overdosing and/or damaging their bodies as a result of the drug use.
