Hope by the Sea - Prescription Drug Rehab in California
Prescription drug abuse is on the rise and should be cause for great concern. Narcotic (analgesic) drugs are the most commonly misused of prescription drugs. At Hope by the Sea we have OxyContin and opiate addiction treatment as well as treatment and detox for other drugs like benzodiazepines and stimulants. We treat adults and young adults - as both groups have had an increasing need for prescription drug addiction treatment. Below are the categories of prescription drugs that we treat at our California prescription drug rehab:
NARCOTICS (OxyContin, Vicodin, Percocet), also known as analgesics or opiods are drugs that are prescribed for moderate to severe physical pain. They are abused because of their euphoric, sedating, and numbing effects. Narcotic abuse causes tolerance and dependence and the withdrawal symptoms are severe.
DEPRESSANTS (Xanax, Valium, Librium, Ambien) are drugs that are prescribed to treat anxiety and sleep disorders. They are abused because of their sedating properties. With abuse, depressants cause tolerance and dependence and the withdrawal symptoms can be severe.
STIMULANTS (Ritalin, Dexedrine, Meridia, Adderall) are prescribed to treat ADD/ADHD and other conditions such as asthma. They are abused because of their energizing and euphoric effects. Stimulants do not generally cause tolerance or dependence but abuse is associated with hostility and paranoia. There is also great risk for cardiovascular failure and seizures.
We are an affordable and comprehensive prescription drug rehab program in California in the coastal Orange County area to help adult and young adult prescription drug abusers begin the recovery process. Hope by the Sea is a leading quality of care facility on the West Coast with an outstanding clinical staff.
