Prescription Pill Detox at Banyan Delaware

Prescription medications like painkillers, sedatives, and benzodiazepines are often prescribed by medical professionals to treat health conditions that can range in severity. Some of these medications treat conditions like attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), anxiety, sleep disorders, pain, and more. Although these medications are prescribed by doctors, it doesn’t mean they’re always safe. These prescription drugs are highly addictive and commonly abused. The opioid epidemic has been a result of the growth in prescription drug abuse in the United States. At Banyan Delaware, our prescription pill detox program helps patients safely flush out any drugs or alcohol in their systems. Patients in this treatment can start their recovery journey with a clean slate.

Signs of Prescription Pill Addiction

Many people who have a prescription drug addiction are in denial or may initially refuse to receive treatment. Over time, an untreated substance abuse disorder can begin to affect every area of a person’s life. Looking out for the signs of prescription drug abuse can help you or someone you know prevent this from happening.

Some of these signs include:

  • Taking a higher dose than prescribed
  • Taking pills more often than prescribed 
  • Constantly switching from one doctor to another (doctor shopping)
  • Lying about losing the medication to get more
  • Misusing drugs or taking them in any way that isn’t prescribed

Anyone who shows signs of prescription pill addiction can take the first step in the journey to sobriety with our prescription pill detox in Delaware and can continue with our residential drug treatment.

What to Expect During a Prescription Pill Detox Treatment

The individual chemical makeup of prescription medications differs from each other because they’re used to treat a wide variety of ailments. Due to these differences, the severity of withdrawal symptoms may also vary. The intensity of a user’s withdrawal symptoms and overall prescription pill detox may also depend on the severity of the addiction, their current health conditions, and any other medications or substances they were also taking.

Some withdrawal symptoms that can occur during a prescription drug detox include:

  • Tremors
  • Chills
  • Sweating
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Diarrhea
  • Muscles pains and aches
  • Involuntary muscle spasms and twitches
  • Inability to sleep
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Irritability

Without a proper detox for a prescription pill addiction, withdrawal symptoms could worsen and lead to additional health conditions. The best way to avoid this is by undergoing a supervised prescription pill detox at our rehab center in Delaware. Our staff of trained professionals is dedicated to providing patients with an efficient detoxification treatment so they can begin to heal from the repercussions of substance abuse.
