Prescription Drug Detox in Ohio

It is difficult to decide to stop abusing drugs, let alone find help doing it. In fact, many people who don’t get professional help just give up. However, many fail to realize prescription drug abuse can be as deadly as any other type. Our rehabilitation center in Cincinnati provides a prescription drug detox in Ohio that gives you the best chances for success. We are committed to helping each person overcome their addiction to prescription drugs. We offer a  range of treatment options to holistically and comprehensively encourage recovery.

Understanding What Prescription Drug Addiction Looks Like

Some people who are addicted to prescription drugs choose one specific type of drug and stick with that drug throughout the course of their addictions. For these people, that one drug is the only drug they would ever consider taking. They might not even dabble with taking other medications or drugs of any sort.

There are also many people who choose to mix and match their prescription drugs, developing their own cocktail of medications to help them get through the day. The detox process can be quite different depending on the types of drugs the person has taken and how much. Because of how important it is to be precise, at the beginning of the prescription drug detox in Ohio, our experts attempt to determine what types of drugs the person has been taking and how much the person takes in each dose.

Different Types of Prescription Drugs Abused

Prescription painkillers

Prescription painkillers are a class of prescription drugs that work by interfering with the signals our nervous system sends to our brain to create the sensation of pain. Most prescription painkillers also stimulate the parts of our brain associated with euphoria, or pleasure, creating the sensation of being “high.”

Some common prescription painkillers include:

  • Oxycodone
  • Codeine
  • Vicodin
  • Dilaudid

Prescription barbiturates and benzodiazepines

Prescription barbiturates and benzodiazepines are two seemingly similar classes of prescription drugs. However, barbiturates are generally used as sedatives, while benzodiazepines are prescription tranquilizers. Abruptly stopping the use of barbiturates or benzodiazepines can result in potentially fatal seizures. It is highly recommended that addicts recovering from abusing these drugs use a medical detox center when undergoing prescription drug detox.

Some common prescription barbiturates and benzodiazepines include:

  • Xanax
  • Nembutal
  • Klonopin
  • Seconal

Prescription Drug Withdrawal Symptoms

If you need to detox from prescription drugs, know this often is an extremely uncomfortable process. Detoxing can lead to various health-related complications when not overseen by a team of medical professionals. At Legacy Healing Center in Cincinnati, OH, we offer our patients a comprehensive individualized detox program geared towards making the withdrawal process as painless as possible.

Some commons side effects of prescription drug detox include:

  • Profuse sweating and chills

  • Insomnia, paranoia, and delusions
