Understanding Prescription Medication Addiction

  • A Growing Epidemic

Prescription medication addiction is a silent yet rapidly growing epidemic. You or a loved one may have initially taken medications as prescribed for a legitimate medical reason. However, over time, a physical and psychological dependence can develop – leading to addiction.

  • Common Addictive Prescriptions

Opioid painkillers like oxycodone and hydrocodone are among the most commonly abused prescription drugs. But many become addicted to anti-anxiety medications (benzodiazepines), stimulants for ADHD treatment, and even sleep medications.

  • How It Starts

The path to addiction often begins innocently. You take a medication exactly as your doctor instructs to treat acute or chronic pain, sleep issues, anxiety, or another health condition. Yet these powerful substances can eventually rewire your brain’s reward pathways.

As you develop a tolerance, you may start taking higher doses to achieve the same effects. This increasing misuse leads to dependence and addiction over time.

  • Recognizing the Signs

Early warning signs include losing control over usage, continuing use despite negative consequences, and obsessing over getting and taking the drugs. More severe signs are developing withdrawal symptoms, engaging in drug-seeking behaviors like “doctor shopping,” and experiencing intense cravings.

Untreated, prescription drug addiction can destroy health, relationships, careers and finances. But with comprehensive treatment at Bold Steps, you can regain control over substance use and your life.

Our Holistic Addiction Treatment Plans

At Bold Steps Behavioral Health, we understand that overcoming prescription medication addiction requires a comprehensive approach. Our holistic treatment plans are tailored to each individual’s unique needs and circumstances.

What is a Partial Hospitalization Program?

A partial hospitalization program (PHP) provides intensive, structured outpatient treatment during the day while allowing you to return home in the evenings. It offers a step-down level of care after an inpatient stay or an alternative to hospitalization.

  • Dual Diagnosis Treatment

Many individuals struggling with prescription drug addiction also face co-occurring mental health disorders. Our dual diagnosis program addresses both conditions simultaneously through an integrated treatment plan. This approach enhances the recovery process and reduces the risk of relapse.

  • Trauma-Informed Care

Unresolved trauma can contribute to the development and perpetuation of addiction. Our trauma-informed therapists create a safe, supportive environment for individuals to process and heal from past traumatic experiences. Addressing underlying trauma is crucial for long-term recovery.

  • Experiential Therapies

In addition to traditional psychotherapy, we offer a range of experiential therapies to engage the mind, body, and spirit in the healing process. Activities such as art therapy, music therapy, and outdoor experiences provide alternative avenues for self-expression, stress relief, and personal growth.

  • Aftercare and Alumni Support

Recovery is an ongoing journey, and we are committed to supporting our clients long after they complete our residential program. Our aftercare services, including sober living arrangements and alumni support groups, provide a strong foundation for sustained sobriety and personal empowerment.

At Bold Steps Behavioral Health, we believe in treating the whole person, not just the addiction. Our comprehensive, holistic approach empowers individuals to reclaim their lives and achieve lasting recovery.
