Prescription Drug Addiction/Abuse Treatment

Prescription Addiction

Prescription drug abuse continues to be a major issue in Canada. The dependence on prescription drugs puts a burden on the public healthcare system. Addiction to prescription drugs is increasing in youth in Canada. 1000 Islands Addiction Rehab is a rehabilitation facility that provides assistance and support for individuals in Canada and the world that are suffering from prescription drug addiction.

Prescription Drugs and Prescription Drug Abuse

There are many varied substances or prescription drugs that are used both legally and illegally. As dependence increases addiction to these drugs and the use of illegal streams increases the chance of overdose and death.

These are some of the most common categories of prescription drugs:

Prescription Sedatives

Prescription drug addiction for sedatives is quite common especially for those that need treatment for anxiety and insomnia. There is a tendency for sedative abuse for those seeking the calming and numbing effects. Some of the drugs that are part of prescription drug addiction include Nembutal, Ativan, Xanax, and Ambien. Addiction means that individuals can no longer function without the drug. If doctor administered prescriptions are concluded addicts will seek out illegal avenues to obtain a supply.

Prescription Opioids

1000 Islands Addiction Rehab recognizes that opioids and their impact continue to be a major crisis in Canada and the world.  Some of the opioids include methadone, codeine, morphine, and oxycodone. Prescription drug dependence to opioids is typically as a result of increased dosage required for pain management. Just like sedatives when a doctor prescription runs out, addicted individuals will seek out illegal avenues. Illegal streams sometimes contain other drugs such as cocaine, heroin or other drugs.

Prescription Stimulants

Some of the most common stimulants that cause addiction include amphetamines. This prescription drug is typically used for the treatment of health conditions such as obesity and Attention Deficit Disorders. Addiction occurs when people can not function with the drugs. Stimulants give alertness, energy and a heightened state of awareness. When a doctor prescribed stimulant is stopped it leads individuals to seek out illegal means.
