There are several reasons why you or someone very close to you might need a drug rehabilitation program in Austin. Most often the user will never admit he/she has a problem. It is only when drug addiction has turned his/her entire life upside down that help is sought. Often times, this is too late because now the drug is needed just to make the user feel normal.
Most prescription medication is physically addictive. To abruptly discontinue prescription medications, could create a situation where the person could immediately experience seizures or convulsions. It is for this reason, that withdrawal from prescription medications should be gradual and under medical supervision. This is best accomplished in a residential treatment program to guard against any medical complications.
The discomfort associated with withdrawal from these medications is contingent upon the dose the person is taking and the length of time they have been taking it. Some people take between 20 and 30 pills daily.
In addition to the physical addiction created by abusing prescription medication, people also experience a deterioration in personal relationships, employment difficulties due to a lack of concentration and motivation, financial difficulties, legal problems, as well as, psychological difficulties. Most of the people found addicted to prescription medication have experienced most of the above.
The first step in finding help is realizing that you have a problem. Drug addiction is never kind. It sneaks up slowly on the most unsuspecting of victims and, before you realize it, where you once found relief, you now find only obsession and grief. Anyone can fall victim to the alluring charm of drugs, but their enigmatic appeal and softly reassuring whisper of relief carries with it a high price -- your self-respect, your family, your friends, your job and your pride.
