Sober Freedom’s Prescription Drug Rehab Program. Call: 866.434.2630

If you are suffering from prescription drug addiction or know someone who needs help with the disease we can help. Prescription drug addiction is a very serious medical and social problem. The abuse of prescription drugs has increased dramatically in the last 20 years. So much so, that prescription drugs are now the second most abused class of drugs behind marijuana. Moreover, prescription drug abuse is rampant among adolescents, teens and young adults. In adults, often times prescription drug abuse starts with a legitimate prescription for pain. One of the side effects of pain medication is, unfortunately, dependency. Pain medications are exceedingly difficult to get clean and sober “cold turkey” because withdrawal symptoms can be as severe as heroin addiction. There is hope and Sober Freedom can help.

If you have problems with prescription drug addiction, call us at 866.434.2630 and we will help you get in to a treatment program specifically designed to help people with prescription drug problems. What makes Sober Freedom different from most other drug and alcohol treatment services is that we help you every step of the way, from answering all of your initial questions, to helping you process insurance, paperwork or other formalities and we can help you with travel arrangements to get to treatment or detox.

What’s the First Step to Getting Clean & Sober from Prescription Drugs?

The first step in treating prescription drug dependency is admitting to yourself that you have a problem and that you need help. If you can do this, what you’ll find is that there are literally thousands of dedicated professionals nationwide that have made it their life’s goal to help people with drug and alcohol dependency issues.

What if I don’t have Insurance? How am I Going to Afford Treatment?

Its going to be ok, lack of insurance does not mean your won’t be able to get in to a qualified treatment program. Sober Freedom offers scholarships and financing for people that need assistance. Moreover, we’ve found that for most people struggling with dependency issues, more often than not, family and friends are willing to assist their loved ones to get them in to treatment. We understand the complex dynamics of getting treatment paid for. This is the last thing you should worry about.

What can Parents, Family & Friends Do When a Loved One is Suffering?

If you have a family member or close friend that has a prescription drug problem please understand that the problem is severe. Many people tend to minimize the harsh reality of prescription drug addiction because the drugs being taken are often times prescribed by doctors. The reality is this: most prescription drugs of abuse are powerful pain medications classified as opioids. Withdrawals from this class of drug are as powerful as heroin withdrawals. The other, most commonly abused prescription drugs are, in order of abuse, (1) sedatives and tranquilizers and (2) stimulants. As with opioids, sedatives and tranquilizers have serious side effects and withdrawal symptoms. Combined with alcohol, these drugs can result in coma or death.

The most important thing you can do if you suffer from prescription drug addiction is to first reach out and ask for help. For many, this is the hardest step. Once you reach out for help, you’ll find that there are a lot of people that care and want to help. Give Sober Freedom a call today at 866.434.2630 and we’ll help you understand what treatment is all about, how we can help you get in to treatment and how you can live the sober, successful life you deserve.

Is it Possible to Get Sober?

The Reality

This may seem like a silly question but for many dealing with prescription drug problems, they may feel that it’s impossible to stop. The answer is a resounding “Yes.” You can recover from prescription drug abuse but first you need to reach out to a friend, family member, physician or to a drug and alcohol treatment center to get information about how to begin the treatment process. What you’ll be surprised to find is that there are a wealth of resources to draw from and even more people willing to help because they’ve gone through the same thing.

The Myth

One of the greatest misconceptions about prescription drug abuse, and a reason why it’s hard for people to accept help, is that excessive prescription drug use is acceptable because they are prescribed by doctors, that the drugs are “clean” or that the FDA has “approved” the drug of abuse. These myths, while carrying with them the semblance of truth, are represent some of the common barriers that prescription drug abusers must overcome to accept the help they desserve.

Detox

If You Need Prescription Drug Detox When people think of drug detox, they typically think of a small handfull of drugs of abuse that may require detox prior to treatment such as heroin, crack or severe alcoholism. The fact is, many people that abuse prescription drugs may need specialized medical care to monitor them while they go through the process of detoxification. This is especially true for those that abuse opioids such as Oxycontin or Vicodin. Sober Freedom will arrange for your detox needs and make sure you get the specific treatment you need.

Treatment

Many people that begin a residential treatment program are happy to find that all of their initial fears about treatment were unfounded. Will the treatment center be nice looking? Will I feel safe there? Will other people judge me? Will my counselors and the staff be kind? At Sober Freedom, our patients benefit from excellent facilities, caring staff and, most of all, a caring and non-judgmental environment specifically designed with a patient-focused perspective. Our goal is to help you get through treatment and in to sober living as best as possible. That means treating people with the dignity and respect they deserve.
