Prescription Drug Addiction Treatment
Prescription drug abuse is on the rise with more people becoming addicted to various "white collar" drugs such as oxycontin, antidepressants, barbituates, benzodiazepines, and sleeping pills. Those addicted to prescription meds should be weaned off while under a doctor?s supervision. Abruptly stopping the medication(s) can result in life-threating seizures and hyperactivity of the nervous system. Prescription drug treatment centers offer counseling and the medical assistance needed to safely come off of prescription meds.
