Prescription Drug Rehab in Texas: Your Addiction Is Real and Dangerous
The Centers for Disease Control claims that in 2015 alone over 33,000 Americans lost their lives to prescription opiates and heroin. Are you misusing or abusing a medication without a prescription, or in a way other than prescribed? It could be a painkiller, an anti-anxiety medication, a stimulant, or a variety of prescribed drugs. Prescription drug addiction is complicated because your medication was likely prescribed to treat a specific illness or condition, but many of these medications are highly addictive. If you’re not careful a serious prescription drug addiction could arise before you know what hit you.
If you or a loved one is struggling with prescription drug abuse, know that you are not alone. The National Institute on Drug Abuse found that over 52 million Americans used prescription drugs in a non medical fashion, and over 2 million were addicted to prescription painkillers.
A 2012 article published by Reuters claims that 70 percent of those who abused prescription painkillers got them from friends and relatives, while approximately five percent got them from a drug dealer or from the Internet.
America is currently experiencing the worst drug epidemic in history, and prescription painkillers are one of the main culprits. In 2015, over 20,000 people died from prescription painkiller overdoses alone. So how can you avoid becoming a statistic? By getting yourself the treatment you deserve.

We know how hard the withdrawal and detox process can be, which is why we have a 24/7 medical team staffed for our patients. Detox is a difficult but necessary step towards a lifetime of sobriety. With Willow Springs Recovery you’ll be able to move through the detox process and into our treatment program with ease. Medications might be provided to ease some of the withdrawal symptoms, including:

There are dangers associated with detoxing, but our facility is well-equipped to monitor your health in a safe and comfortable environment.

Do I Need Prescription Drug Rehab? Signs of Prescription Drug Addiction
It can be challenging to determine if you or a loved one has become addicted to your prescription. A medication you once took to manage chronic pain, anxiety, or any other ailment could end up leaving you addicted, and fast. If you have not already noticed changes in your behavior, consider the effects abuse of pills can have on you.
The longer you or our loved one struggles with a prescription drug addiction, the more obvious behavioral changes become. Don’t ignore the prescription drug addiction warning signs:
- Taking higher doses than prescribed
- Excessive mood swings or hostility
- Increase or decrease in sleep
- Poor decision-making
- Stealing, forging, or selling prescriptions
- Appearing to be high, unusually energetic or sedated
- Continually “losing” prescriptions so that more can be filled
- Consumption of similar over-the-counter drugs
If you or someone you know is exhibiting these signs, you should consider looking into your prescription drug addiction treatment options.
Short-term and Long-term Effects of Prescription Drugs
- Neglecting work or school
- Change in overall attitude and mood swings
- Talking about partying or drinking more than before
- Appearing jittery
- Deteriorating grooming and physical appearance
- Missing items or valuables in your home
- Disconnecting from family and friends to hang out with a new group of drug using friends
- Financial problems
These are all warning signs you might notice if someone is abusing prescription drugs such as OxyContin, Vicodin, Valium, Xanax, and Ritalin.
Overdose Symptoms of Prescription Drugs
An overdose occurs when a toxic amount of a drug or medicine is taken, but the signs and symptoms depend upon a variety of factors including what drug is taken, the amount taken, and your state of health at the time. You might experience nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, seizures, confusion, difficulty breathing, internal bleeding, hallucination, and coma. It’s important to know that an overdose is a medical emergency that requires immediate medical attention.
Are You Prepared for Intervention?
You might be scared or feel uncomfortable talking with your loved one about their addiction, but do your best to have a discussion about their problem. Here are a few tips to help with that process:
- Don’t bring up the subject when they are under the influence. It might be difficult for them to understand logic, and they could be impatient, dismissive, or angry
- Establish a time to talk alone and uninterrupted
- Tell them you care for them and your concern for their well-being led you to have this conversation
- Don’t expect a dramatic shift in thinking or behavior right away; this might be the first time your loved one has thought about their problem
- If your loved one tells you that they don’t have a problem, ask to talk with them later. You are not trying to convince them – your goal is simply to let them know that you believe there is a problem based upon the behaviors you’ve seen
- Create a two-way conversation so they don’t feel lectured or accused
- Keep in mind that there is no quick fix. Prepare yourself for the long haul
In some cases, a conversation might not be enough. In these situations, we are here to assist you or your loved one. We provide the resources needed to stop prescription drug abuse in an environment where people understand the problem and how to heal from it.
