Rehab Center in Austin for Painkillers and Other Prescription Drugs

Just because a doctor has prescribed a drug doesn’t mean it is not potentially dangerous or habit-forming. Studies show prescription drugs, such as painkillers, have addictive properties equal to those of illicit substances like heroin. In fact, some of today’s illicit drugs were once used as medications themselves. Their pain-relieving, numbing or stimulating characteristics were not always known to be dangerous, and since they were highly effective for certain medical purposes, their chemical structures now form the basis for many modern prescription drugs. Pharmaceutical companies have specifically formulated today’s medications to mimic the effects of these illicit substances, while reducing – though not eliminating – their harmful properties. Misuse or recreational use of these substances can lead to dependence or addiction, just as easily as with illicit drugs.

Prescription Drug Addiction in Texas

Prescription drug addiction is an escalating problem across the United States, and in Texas specifically. According to a recent report, “Substance Abuse Trends in Texas,” hydrocodone is the most prevalent prescription medication used for non-medical purposes. Recent problems in Texas center around illicit pain clinics, pharmacies and physicians, all prescribing an excess of three desired pharmaceuticals: Hydrocodone, carisoprodol (Soma) and alprazolam (Xanax). Oxycontin also makes the list of highly sought-after prescription medications in Texas, according to the study. The Houston Chronicle reports that, “over half of all fatal drug overdoses [in the state] involve prescription medication.” 

The need for strong prescription drug addiction treatment in Texas is clear. Any Length Retreat provides quality substance use treatment for men in Austin, TX. Our goal is to stop the prescription drug epidemic from becoming worse and save the lives of those suffering from addiction.

How to Help My Loved One Fight Prescription Drug Addiction

step 5 in AA

It’s easy to feel helpless watching someone struggle with addiction to prescription drugs – especially if that someone is your husband, son, father, or best friend.  It’s tempting to try and care for them yourself. You want to provide them with whatever love, support, or money will get them through this. You want to give them shelter and protect them from themselves.  In truth, the cycle of addiction to prescription drugs cannot be broken so easily, and it is important that your loved one seek professional help to overcome their substance use disorder.

At Any Length Retreat, we ensure that your loved one is guided safely and successfully through the various stages of treatment so they can overcome addiction and get a fresh start to life. Getting help for your loved one can be the greatest act of love. If you need assistance talking to your loved one about treatment, please reach out to us 24/7, free of charge, no commitment. We are here to help you!
