Prescription Drugs Addiction
Prescription drug addiction is a growing issue throughout the United States, with individuals from all walks of life affected by the dangers of this behavior. From college-aged adults to seniors in their golden years, prescription drug addicts may find themselves facing an insurmountable mountain when seeking help. It is important to get help as soon as possible with this addiction.
What is Prescription Drugs Addiction
Addiction to prescription drugs can have serious physical and psychological repercussions; withdrawal symptoms range from tremors and sweats to depression and fatigue.
Prescription drug detoxing can be an especially difficult journey, as prescription drugs affect the brain similarly to illegal drugs. Detoxing involves more than just quitting cold turkey; it requires educational opportunities, emotional and psychological support, as well as medical monitoring.
Withdrawal from any prescription drug abuse is not something to be taken lightly; seeking help from experienced professionals is key and can decrease the discomfort associated with detoxing. Our trained professionals at Valiant Living Detox and Assessment are here to help you get through your detox.
Completing a detox from prescription drugs can be an uncomfortable and difficult task, but we offer a supportive environment and knowledgeable professionals that can make this experience more manageable. Highly trained staff members are available to provide individualized attention to patients, addressing each person’s unique needs during their detox journey.
By integrating strategies, we ensure that our patients undergoing prescription drug addiction treatment have a comfortable and secure experience. This way, withdrawal symptoms are better managed to guarantee the safety of each patient throughout their recovery journey.
Our inpatient rehabilitation services are tailored to fit the needs of each patient. We assign three to four staff members per patient for specialized attention during their stay with us. Our patients gain comfort from the luxury of having a private bedroom and bathroom–creating an atmosphere that facilitates healing by enabling them to feel safe enough to focus on recovery from prescription drug addiction. Our team of experts, combined with our calming amenities, creates a conducive atmosphere for recovery.
After completing the process of medical detoxification and feeling more in control, we collaborate with patients and their families to determine what is best for them going forward. At our practice, we prioritize understanding your therapy goals and any financial or insurance challenges that could impact your recovery journey. We are committed to being by your side so you can achieve optimal treatment results with ease. Our team of experts work to ensure you receive successful long-term healing.

We’ve put together a list of commonly asked questions to help shed some light on the experience and ease any lingering fears or anxieties you may have.
Our goal is to ensure that the detoxification process is as smooth and comfortable as possible for our guests. Medical care is available 24/7 and we utilize a variety of therapies, activities and treatments to promote a positive, healthy experience. These include daily activities, individual and group therapy, holistic approaches, medication maintenance and more, scheduled in such a way that is ideal for patient recovery. The goal is to maintain a daily balance that isn’t too hectic or overwhelming, nor so relaxed that guests get bored. Patients also receive a certain amount of personal freedom and independence; we are not a hospital or psychiatric ward and clients are not locked in. Our facility strives to create an inviting, home-like environment for a safe and comfortable experience. At Valiant Living Detox and Assessment, our patients are our guests and we treat them as such.
On average, detox lasts about five days but can range from three to 10 days. Detox varies from patient to patient and you or your loved one’s exact length of stay depends on a variety of factors, such as: the substance(s) they have used, the amount of substance(s) they have used, the length of time they have been using the substance(s), frequency of use and the route of administration can all determine just how long they need to be in our care.
At Valiant Living Detox and Assessment, we understand that detox alone isn’t a long-term solution for treating addiction. It is just one intervention method of many for changing a substance-abusing lifestyle into a clean-and-sober one. For this reason, we work very hard to help each individual develop an appropriate plan for formal chemical dependency treatment, whether on an inpatient or outpatient basis, at the time of their discharge.
Having a plan set up prior to detox would be ideal to help ensure that appropriate treatment is secured in advance, but things don’t always work out this way. Unfortunately, relapses and addiction rarely happen at logical or convenient times and leave little opportunity to set up a plan before entering detox. In this case, we work closely with the patient and their family to develop a post-detox plan and organize the next phase of recovery. This often involves coordinating treatment around work and family responsibilities, considering issues such as motivation, commitment or denial, and untangling financial or insurance limitations. While these decisions are never easy, they are done in order to promote the best chance at achieving long-term recovery and support the individual and their family as they work toward a life free of drugs or alcohol.
Detox is a difficult time for both the individual participating in the detox program and their family, who are separated from them during the process. At Valiant Living Detox and Assessment, we want you to feel comfortable knowing that your loved one is in a safe place during this difficult time and is being cared for appropriately with nothing but compassion and support. Although you may feel the need to be in contact or see them during this process, we firmly believe that detox is most effective when there are as few distractions as possible. This allows patients to focus on healing and gives them time to consider their next steps. Throughout the process, a staff member will be in contact with you to provide you with updates, progress reports and more. Our compassionate team will also be available to coach, support and advise you, so you’re better prepared to help your loved one make important decisions regarding their future and provide the guidance, encouragement and empathy they need at this time.
The first 24 hours of detox are often spent resting and recuperating. During this time, patients will have access to a phone and will be able to make a check-in call and provide a progress update. You will be able to provide encouragement and remind your loved one of the importance of what they’re doing, but after this period, it’s important that they focus on themselves and begin the healing process. Detox is a time for patients to take a step back from their lives so they can reconnect with their inner selves and engage in active self-reflection and self-care. Since the time in detox may last for three to 10 days, we recognize the importance of each precious minute we spend with our patients. Visitation may take away from the short amount of time available and interfere with program participation, so we believe it’s important to establish healthy boundaries and spend this time apart. For these reasons, visitation isn’t allowed during the detox phase of treatment, but a staff member will be in regular contact to keep you up-to-date.
