Prescription Drug Rehab Resurgence Behavioral Health

Best RX Drug Rehab – Washington

This year, it’s expected that more than 16 million people will misuse prescription drugs. Of these, two million people are addicted to prescription drugs. Prescription drug addiction is just as serious–and potentially deadly–as any other form of substance addiction. In 2020, there were more than 16,000 deaths related to prescription opioid overdoses alone. 

Addiction Treatment that
Just Works

Individualized treatment programs delivered in a comfortable, relaxed setting promote healing in your recovery journey.

While there has been a serious effort from the medical community and legislators to curb prescription drug abuse such as opioid painkillers and sedatives, the abuse problem persists. In fact, many people who have developed an RX addiction, especially where opioids are concerned, have turned to illicit drugs like heroin after it became too difficult to obtain prescription medication. 

Resurgence Behavioral Health is among the leading addiction treatment centers in Washington. In addition to drug rehabilitation and treatment of substance abuse disorders, Resurgence features behavioral therapy for mental health disorders and treatment for dual diagnosis. As with any form of drug addiction, addiction to medications like opioids or stimulants is a chronic condition. Until it’s managed, it will not get better and, as statistics show, it’s likely to get worse. 

If you abuse prescription opioids or other medications, you can find high-quality substance abuse treatment at our drug rehab center in Washington. Resurgence offers multiple levels of care, including inpatient drug rehab, partial hospitalization, outpatient rehab, medical detox, sober living, and aftercare. With both evidence-based treatment and holistic drug therapies, we can help you manage your prescription drug addiction.

What makes Resurgence Behavioral Health one of the best rehab centers in Washington? Our Washington rehab features a wide range of substance abuse treatments, including detox programs, cognitive behavioral therapy, dialectical behavior therapy, trauma therapy, family therapy program, medication-assisted treatment, dual diagnosis treatment, and more. Many of our clients are also enrolled in anxiety treatment, depression treatment, and other behavioral health programs. Each treatment modality targets some aspect of an individual’s alcohol or drug addiction.

At Resurgence, clients can get the level of support they need to manage their addiction successfully. Our treatment programs are based on medically sanctioned therapies such as cognitive behavioral therapy and current mental health treatments. In addition to our full continuum of care addiction treatment programs, we also offer individual therapy that’s tailored to each person’s needs. While other Washington drug rehabs may feature standard addiction rehab programs, we believe that the customized approach works best as each person brings a unique set of circumstances, needs, and preferences with them to addiction rehab. 

With a strong focus on relapse prevention, each individual therapy program at Resurgence provides clients with the inpatient treatment or outpatient treatment they need to successfully manage their triggers to abuse prescription drugs, alcohol, or street drugs. Our clinicians and addiction specialists help clients repair the damage that drug abuse has had on their lives so they can safeguard their health and future.

What Is Prescription Drug Rehab Like?

Our rehab in Washington offers clients a safe place to learn how to manage their RX addiction. Initially, the rehab experience may seem jarring because of the intensive nature of early treatments like opioid detox or medical detox in general. Many clients expect to feel some discomfort during detox because of withdrawal symptoms, but our clinicians prescribe treatments to lessen the severity of symptoms like headache, nausea, chills, insomnia, or anxiety. 

Withdrawal symptoms are an inevitable part of any addiction detox–meth addiction detox, alcohol detox, or any other drug detox program. However, certain symptoms often accompany certain drugs. For example, people with opioid addiction often experience flu-like withdrawal symptoms. At Resurgence, our care team will strive to make you as comfortable as possible so you can rest during this process. Once medical detox is complete, you can begin the next phase of your therapy. 

Your treatment course is individualized. You may opt for residential treatment after detoxes or another substance abuse treatment program like intensive outpatient therapy or a partial hospitalization program. The type of program you select depends on your needs. If you feel unstable, have an unsupportive home life, or are in serious jeopardy of relapsing, a residential treatment program is likely to be the best option for you. Many clients at Resurgence transition from one program to another as they require less and less formal support. 

When enrolled in an addiction treatment program at Resurgence, you can expect to be treated with respect and empathy. We understand the challenges associated with addiction recovery. During each therapy session, you’ll get help managing different aspects of your prescription drug addiction problem.  

What to Expect in RX Rehab?

When you choose Resurgence Behavioral Health for drug and alcohol rehab programs, you can expect to begin the treatment process with an evaluation. Many people with a prescription drug addiction may also have an alcohol addiction or another drug addiction. Others may have co-occurring disorders such as depression, post-traumatic stress disorder, or an eating disorder. Our treatment facility can help each of these clients, but we need to know what each is experiencing so we can recommend the ideal inpatient or outpatient programs for their needs. 

Unless the individual has already been through detox, they will most likely begin their treatment at the RX treatment center with drug detox. That process usually lasts for about a week. However, it could take a bit longer depending on the person’s chemistry or if they’re suffering from other drug addictions. Medical detox only severs a person’s physical dependence on the addictive substance. Addiction is a multiple aspect disease that is also governed by psychological and behavioral dependence. In other words, detox is never enough to achieve recovery; it’s only the first step in the recovery process. 

After detox, the next phase of treatment targets the individual’s mental and behavioral dependence on drugs or alcohol. In the case of prescription drug addiction, our therapists will help clients understand what led them to abuse these drugs. While many people began to abuse them recreationally, that’s often not the case. For instance, many people who have a prescription opioid addiction have been prescribed these narcotics to treat pain. Opioids are highly addictive even in prescription form. During individual and group therapy sessions, clients will develop the strategies they need to control their physical and emotional cravings for the drugs in order to prevent relapse. 

How Long Is Rehab for Prescription Drugs in Washington?

Treatment for drug addictions varies over time. Some clients move through each formal treatment program we offer from residential treatment to living in a sober living community and attending aftercare sessions. Other clients may begin their rehab treatment with intensive outpatient programs. On average, clients spend about 30 days inpatient treatment and then 30-90 days in outpatient treatment. Again, this depends on each client and their needs and preferences. 

Research demonstrates that the more time a person spends in drug rehab treatment programs, the less likely they are to suffer a relapse. The recovery process is long and gradual, but having support, especially during the initial months of recovery, is crucial for making the life changes that are needed to support life-long addiction recovery. 

Top Abused Rx Drugs

The leading prescription drugs abused by people are far and away opioids–specifically, opioid painkillers. This is a uniquely American problem too. The U.S. is prescribed 97% of the world’s hydrocodone prescriptions. While legislators and the medical community work to reduce the number of opioids prescribed to treat pain by offering less addictive alternatives, the problem continues to evolve. In fact, there is further research that suggests many people who now have a heroin addiction first became addicted to an opioid they had been prescribed but could no longer obtain legally. 

Other commonly abused RX drugs include sedatives such as Xanax and Valium and stimulants like Adderall. Another problem among prescription drug abusers is the tendency to drink alcohol when taking these drugs. Combining prescription drugs with alcohol or other drugs carries an increased risk of overdose. All types of substance abuse are dangerous, but combining substances is especially dangerous and associated with deadly outcomes. 

Why Choose Resurgence for Prescription Drug Rehab?

If you abuse prescription drugs or other drugs and alcohol, it’s important to remember that these substances will cause your physical and mental health to deteriorate and negatively impact other elements of your life like your relationships, career, and finances. In some cases, that deterioration happens quickly as in the case of an overdose. At other times, the deterioration is gradual, but inevitable unless the abuse stops. 

Resurgence Behavioral Health is among the leading rehab centers in Washington. Our substance abuse treatment programs are customized to our client’s specific needs. Not all drug rehabs in Washington offer the full continuum of care that Resurgence offers. We are able to provide the precise level of support that clients need whether they are just beginning substance abuse treatment or are transitioning back to their everyday lives.
