Top Rated Prescription Drug Rehab for Residents of El Paso

Just because a medication is physician-prescribed doesn’t mean that certain drugs aren’t capable of leading to an addiction. According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, RX drug misuse and abuse, especially among young adults, is on the rise.

The misuse of RX drugs happens when a person is taking a medication in a way that’s different from the prescribed directions. When you take higher doses than instructed or take a drug just to feel its euphoric effects, this is drug abuse that often causes addiction. Taking another person’s RX drug is another dangerous form of medication misuse that can occur.

The most commonly misused addictive RX drugs include stimulants, opioids, and depressants, all of which can result in different types of serious health consequences when they’re abused. Fatalities resulting from prescription opioid drug overdoses are also a huge concern.

If you believe that you or someone you love is suffering from a substance use disorder, professional RX drug rehab for residents of El Paso is just a phone call away at Resurgence Behavioral Health.

Prescription drug addiction can happen to anyone of any age, from teens to older adults. Having an RX drug addiction can lead to serious medical issues, such as slowed rates of breathing, memory problems, lowered blood pressure, high fevers, heart problems, seizures, and comas, depending on the type of prescription drug and the severity of the addiction.

 When you or someone you care about has developed a physical dependency or an addiction to RX drugs, it’s time to seek out professional help. Residents of El Paso will find that Resurgence Behavioral Health is one of the top-rated centers for prescription drug rehab in the country.

What is RX Rehab Like?

The first step towards recovery from RX drug addiction is admitting that a problem exists. When you acknowledge that you no longer have complete control over your misuse of prescription drugs, you can begin to realize that you can’t conquer this battle on your own.

RX rehab at Resurgence Behavioral Health provides you with a peaceful, supportive environment, individualized counseling and all of the therapeutic and holistic services required that will help you regain your sobriety and get back your life.

The therapy and services you’ll receive will depend on your specific needs, the type of prescription drug you’ve been abusing, and whether you suffer from a co-occurring mental health disorder.

RX rehab at Resurgence Behavioral Health offers you different programs for recovery, with inpatient treatment often providing the most effective results. Living at Resurgence as you undergo RX rehab gives you a safe haven in which to recover and more slowly adjust to your newly found sobriety. You’ll be with other people who have been through similar experiences as you and work together in group therapy and individually through counseling sessions to get to the root of your involvement with prescription drug abuse and analyze your family and other relationships as they involve drug use.

RX rehab also helps you see yourself in a better light as you develop a stronger sense of integrity, improve your self-esteem and develop better coping strategies to use in recovery. Your interpersonal relationships will also improve as a result of your work done in rehab.

Our intensive outpatient program is another highly effective path to recovery that allows you to continue living in your own home while you travel to our center for treatment. We provide you with many of the same therapeutic services as inpatients receive, including holistic therapies, such as yoga, art, neurofeedback training, and cardio workshops.

What To Expect During RX Rehab

Before entering treatment for prescription drug addiction, it’s likely that you’ll first need to undergo a period of detox to cleanse your system of drugs. Our detox program for RX drug addiction is overseen by medical professionals with medically assisted treatment. Experienced clinicians will provide you with medications for your anxiety and discomfort. You’ll be nurtured with caring, dedicated assistance to alleviate your withdrawal symptoms and help avoid any dangerous side effects from becoming a serious issue.

How Long Does RX Rehab El Paso Last?

The time you need to spend in RX rehab treatment at our Resurgence Behavioral Health El Paso center will depend on a number of variables.

The type of prescription drug you’ve become addicted to will influence how long your treatment will take. The length of time you’ve been abusing this medication will also have an effect on your treatment time period for recovery. Another variable to consider is whether or not you’ve been in rehab treatment in the past and have now relapsed.

We also need to take into consideration your overall health, whether you also suffer from any co-occurring mental health disorders and which type of treatment program you’ll be entering.

Keeping in mind that addiction recovery is actually a lifetime process, your time in active RX rehab treatment at Resurgence can take anywhere from 30 to 90 days, with long-term programs taking 120 days or more.

The symptoms you’re experiencing, the types of support you’ll need and the stressors that affect you will all have an impact on your RX rehab treatment’s duration.
