PRESCRIPTION DRUGS REHABILITATION
Prescription drug addiction is one of the most commonly misdiagnosed addictions. The majority of people say “But the Doctor gave me a script for the medication, so it can’t be that bad!”, but this has nothing to do with the addiction one can feel to their medication. More often than not it hinders the user’s ability to recognise their addiction. Many prescription drugs are also used recreationally, with unsuspecting doctors fueling their patient’s addiction. Some of the most severe and long-lasting detoxes are from certain pharmaceutical drugs like Benzodiazepines.
PRESCRIPTION DRUGS ADDICTION
Like any road to sobriety, the battle against Prescription Drugs is treated with the seriousness it deserves.
PHARMACEUTICAL DRUGS DETOX
As with all other addiction programs, at Cherrywood House, we believe a support and counselling program is essential in preventing relapse and assisting in the rehabilitation process.
PHARMACEUTICALS ADDICTION TREATMENT
Cherrywood House's trained Addiction Specialists have many years of experience with Pharmaceutical Addiction Treatment in South Africa. We also find that long term treatment from 3 to 6 months is preferable to treat addictions to prescription drugs. We suggest intensive group therapy coupled with a 12 step program on the road to recovery. Aftercare should definitely be on the treatment plan for a pharmaceutical addiction.
