Fountain Valley Alcohol and Drug Rehab Listings
A doctor from Fountain Valley, California is being investigated by the Medical Board of California due to the fact that 16 of his patients have died, allegedly due to his practice. Addictive pain medications may be the root cause of their death, according to the Los Angeles Times. In fact, the LA Times reported that more than 3,700 people died between 2006 and 2011 in three Southern California counties due to overdose caused by prescription drugs.
The issue of accidental overdose caused by legitimately prescribed pain medication is problematic not just for patients in Southern California but across the country. If you are concerned that your Fountain Valley loved one’s use of prescription painkillers is dangerous despite the fact that they have a prescription, treatment can help.
When Treatment Turns Into Addiction
Accidental overdose very often occurs in patients who are simply taking their medication according to doctors’ orders. However, even more often, patients who alter their use of their prescribed drug without doctor approval are at increased risk of overdose. These abuse or addictive behaviors can include:
- Crushing pills before swallowing them or snorting them
- Drinking alcohol, smoking marijuana or using other drugs while using the pills
- Getting more than one prescription for similar types of drugs
- Getting “emergency” prescription in order to augment the supply of medications
Addressing Prescription Drug Addiction
When there is a legitimate prescription in place for addictive painkillers or sedatives, patients who are addicted to their medication may be even more unwilling to seek addiction treatment. With the backing of a doctor, they may not believe that they need rehab. Speak to an admissions coordinator today when you call the number above and discuss this and other obstacles that are stopping your loved one from getting the care they need to heal.
