Prescription Drugs Detox in Dallas, TX

There are a variety of mental and physical health concerns that benefit from the use of prescription medications. This includes chronic pain, pain management, anxiety-related disorders, attention-deficit hyperactive disorder, and substance use disorders. While these medications can provide relief of symptoms, there can be a risk for abuse and dependency. 

6% of Americans abuse prescribed medications annually, according to the National Center for Drug Abuse and Statistics (NCDAS). Misusing prescriptions occurs when someone takes the medication in a way other than what their Physician directed. Abusing prescriptions does not mean that someone is addicted to the prescription. However, they are at an increased risk of developing an addiction and dependency.

How Do Prescription Drugs
Impact the Body?

The different classes of prescription medications will impact our bodies differently. Opioids are often used to treat and manage pain symptoms. These medications bind to opioid receptors in our brain which provide relief from physical symptoms and subsequently can numb or relieve some emotional distress. Depressant medications include benzodiazepines, barbiturates, and sleep medications. These medications affect our Central Nervous System, which can provide relief for symptoms of insomnia, panic attacks, seizures, and anxiety disorders. Examples of stimulant medications include amphetamines and methylphenidate. These medications can be used to increase alertness, attention, and energy. When these medications are abused, individuals can experience paranoia, anger, psychosis, and experience an overdose. For individuals in the North East areas of Texas, Dallas Detox Center is the ideal provider for those who are detoxing from prescription drugs. We offer holistic treatment options that are designed to be tailored to your needs. We utilize group therapy, individual therapy, and educational sessions to provide you with the tools you need for a healthy recovery.

Dallas Detox Offers Prescription Drug Detox in Dallas, Texas

Similar to other substances that can be abused, your experience with active addiction and recovery will look different than it does for others. While you will likely find similarities with others, your personal journey is unique to you. Take a moment to think of what your life looked like when you were in active addiction- what did your life look like? Are you in a place where you feel tired of using and recognize that there is more to your life than active addiction?

If your answer is yes, take a deep breath. Being able to recognize that your use of prescription medications is causing you harm can be difficult. You have likely experienced a range of consequences from your use which may have impacted your motivation for recovery. The bottom line is that change is hard, and it takes strength to ask for help. 

Whether your use of prescription medications began with being prescribed the medication or not, Dallas Detox Center offers a Dallas prescription drug detox program. Our luxurious drug treatment program is located in Weatherford, Texas, and offers detoxification and inpatient rehab programming. 

Our detoxification program focuses on providing you with the space, encouragement, and support you need as your body adjusts to the natural changes that come along with recovery. Depending on the prescriptions you are taking, this can be a painful and even life-threatening experience for you. Our staff will be with you around the clock and work with you to promote your comfort. 

 Once you are feeling well, you can then transition into our rehab program. Since our program is tailored to each individual we work with, we find that the length of time you are with us can range from 30 to 90 days. We recognize that addiction is more than the substance being abused and that other areas of your life have been impacted. Because of this, we provide holistic care that addresses all the concerns that have resulted from your active addiction. 

A common experience that we see in our treatment program is that there are a large number of individuals who are living with another mental health concern in addition to their substance use disorder. This can include anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder, borderline personality disorder, and trauma-related concerns. If you are living with other mental health concerns, our staff will ensure that you receive dual-diagnosis treatment. 

Dallas Detox is a luxury drug rehab center in Texas that can provide you with detoxification and inpatient treatment services. Addiction treatment may begin in an inpatient treatment program; however, your recovery is a continuous effort. Because of this, our staff will help you develop a personalized relapse prevention plan that can be used as a resource when you return home. This plan can include health coping skills, support, and continued addiction treatment if appropriate. If you are ready to take the next step forward in your recovery, we encourage you to speak with a Dallas Detox Center representative by calling (817)904-2197 today!
