Why is prescription drug rehab important?

An unhealthy reliance on prescription drugs can have a devastating impact on every aspect of your life, including your physical and mental health, relationships, finances and career. Seeking professional prescription drug treatment is crucial to breaking the cycle of abuse and dependency and achieving lasting recovery. Prescription drug rehab can provide the support, resources and guidance you need to overcome the condition and build a healthy, fulfilling life going forward.

Do I need prescription drug rehab?

If you are struggling with prescription drug abuse or dependency, it’s important to seek professional help as soon as possible. This can be easier said than done, however, because dependency can be a very cunning condition and cause you to deny there is an issue both to others and yourself.

Take our quiz to help you determine whether prescription drugs rehab is right for you:

  • Do you often take more prescription medication than prescribed?
  • Have you tried to stop using prescription drugs but found it difficult to do so?
  • Have you obtained prescription drugs in a nefarious way such as by stealing them from a loved one, lying to your doctor or buying them on the black market?
  • Have you experienced negative consequences as a result of your prescription drug use, such as financial problems, legal issues or relationship problems?
  • Have you noticed physical or psychological symptoms of withdrawal when you try to stop using prescription drugs?
  • Do you feel like you need prescription drugs to function normally?

If you answered yes to one or more of these questions, prescription drug rehab may be exactly what you need to turn your life around and break free from the grips of physical and psychological dependence.

Prescription drug rehab at Banbury Lodge

At Banbury Lodge, we offer inpatient prescription drug rehab programmes, which involve living at our rehab centre for the duration of treatment. Inpatient rehab is usually a better choice than outpatient rehab because it provides a higher level of support and supervision.

At inpatient prescription drug rehab, you will be in a safe, structured environment that will allow you to focus solely on your recovery. This can be especially important during the early stages of treatment when the physical and psychological symptoms of withdrawal can be difficult to manage. Inpatient prescription drug rehab also provides access to a more extensive mixture of therapies and treatments as well as round-the-clock medical care and support.

At Banbury Lodge, we offer a range of evidence-based therapies and holistic treatments that can help you overcome your dependency on prescription drugs and achieve lasting recovery. Some of the therapies offered in our prescription drug rehab programmes include:

  • One-to-one therapy: This involves meeting with a therapist in a private and confidential setting to explore your experiences and feelings in depth, helping you gain insight into your behaviours and emotions and develop strategies to cope with the challenges of prescription drug recovery.
  • Group therapy: Group therapy can be a powerful tool during prescription drug treatment enabling you to discuss your condition and related issues, gain valuable support and learn from the experiences of others. In group therapy, you’ll have the opportunity to develop a sense of community and connectedness, while also working on your personal goals for prescription drug rehab.
  • Cognitive-behavioural therapy (CBT): This is a type of therapy that helps you identify and change negative thought patterns and behaviours that contribute to your prescription drug abuse and dependency. CBT can help you develop coping strategies to manage triggers and prevent relapse so you can build a new, healthier way of thinking and so you can take control of your life.
  • Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT): A form of therapy that focuses on teaching you skills to manage emotions, improve relationships and cope with stress. By combining elements of cognitive-behavioural therapy with mindfulness and acceptance techniques, DBT can help you find a sense of balance and peace as you navigate the ups and downs of prescription drug rehab.
  • 12-Step programme: This is a structured programme that provides a set of guidelines for prescription drug recovery. As you work through each of the steps, you will gain valuable insights, find a sense of community and begin to repair the damage done by prescription drugs.
  • Sound Therapy: This is a holistic therapy that uses sound waves to promote relaxation and healing. Whether through music therapy, guided imagery, or chanting, these therapies can help you manage stress, anxiety, and depression, providing a calming and healing environment as you work towards prescription drug recovery.

Other stages of prescription drug recovery

In addition to rehab treatment, you will also undergo prescription drug detox. This is the process of allowing the body to rid itself of prescription drugs and other substances so you can break their physical grip over you. This can be a challenging and uncomfortable process but Banbury Lodge provides round-the-clock medical care and guidance to keep you safe and comfortable.

When you leave Banbury Lodge, you will then begin our aftercare programme which involves ongoing group therapy every week for a year. This is a crucial component of prescription drug rehab, as it extends the community spirit of Banbury Lodge, provides ongoing support and resources and helps prevent relapse.

How to avoid prescription drug relapse

Preventing relapse after leaving prescription drug rehab is a major challenge for everyone in recovery. In fact, according to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, relapse rates for substance abuse are between 40% and 60%. However, relapse does not have to be a part of your recovery journey as there are effective steps you can take to maintain sobriety, including:

  • Attend aftercare: Continuing care, alumni programmes and sober living can provide support, accountability and guidance during difficult moments in prescription drug recovery.
  • Avoid triggers: Triggers are people, places, and situations that can trigger cravings or thoughts of prescription drug use. Identify your triggers and use the coping strategies you developed in prescription drug rehab to avoid them.
  • Practice self-care: Self-care involves taking care of your physical, emotional, and mental health. This can include exercise, healthy eating, meditation and other activities that promote well-being and make it less likely for you to use prescription drugs again.
  • Seek support: It’s important to have a support system of friends, family, therapists and other people in recovery who can help you through tough times and provide moral support.

Remember that if you do relapse, it isn’t the end of the world and you shouldn’t let it completely derail your progress. Speak to your therapists and they will help you get back on track to prescription drug recovery.

Frequently asked questions

Is prescription drug rehab a cure?
No, prescription drug rehab is not a guaranteed cure but it can greatly increase the likelihood of achieving and maintaining recovery. Prescription drug addiction is a complex and chronic disease that can have physical, psychological and social components so successful treatment often requires ongoing support and lifestyle changes after you leave rehab.
How long does prescription drug rehab take?
The length of prescription drug rehab can vary depending on your individual needs and progress in treatment. At Banbury Lodge, our prescription drug rehab programmes range from a few weeks to three months. The recommended duration of prescription drug rehab is often determined by factors such as the severity of the dependence, the presence of co-occurring mental health disorders and your response to treatment.
How can I help a loved one in prescription drug rehab?
If you have a loved one in prescription drug rehab, there are a few things you can do to support them. First, try to educate yourself about prescription drugs treatment so you can offer support from a place of knowledge. Next, stay in touch with your loved one and visit them whenever their rehab centre allows (and if they want you to). Finally, be patient and understand that recovery is a process that takes time and effort and so progress may not come immediately.
