Prescription Drug Abuse and Recovery
More and more Americans are abusing prescription drugs. Designed to treat or cure diseases, these medicines are now contributing to yet another disease: addiction. Unfortunately, prescription drug abuse is quickly becoming part of the growing drug abuse problem facing the country. According to some estimates, nearly 48 million people, or 20 percent of the U.S. population, have used prescription drugs for nonmedical reasons at some point in their lives.1
Everyone has their own reasons for starting down the path of prescription drug abuse. Some people take opioids to conquer pain. Some take tranquilizers to calm down. Others simply want to get high. In any case, their ability to alter someone’s mental state makes certain prescription drugs highly desirable—and highly addictive. What starts as a voluntary decision soon turns into a habit-forming dependency. Before long, the drugs wrest control from a person’s hands, as an addiction is born.
Commonly Abused Prescription Drugs
There Is Hope with RECO Intensive
Addiction need not be a life sentence. There is hope for people who suffer from prescription drug abuse problems. RECO Intensive was built on the premise that recovery is not only possible, but clearly attainable under the right conditions. To help people struggling with addiction, we provide treatment services for the three categories of commonly abused prescription drugs—opioids, stimulants, and central nervous system depressants.
