Prescription drug abuse is one form of substance abuse that often starts at home rather than on the streets. An individual may be prescribed a powerful medication for a real problem only to continue taking it once the problem has been remedied.
It is also common that abusers of these drugs take them from the family medicine cabinet. In Dublin, CA, law enforcement is working to prevent this kind of abuse and diversion by collecting unused medications for disposal. By encouraging residents to hand over medications that are old, expired or unused, officials hope to cut down on the abuse of these drugs.
Ways to Treat Prescription Drug Abuse
The abuse of prescription medications is dangerous and can lead to serious problems or even death. This makes it all the more important to find professional help for someone with this type of substance abuse problem. Below are two types of therapy that are frequently used to treat prescription drugs abuse.
- Detox assistance. Using medications to ease the individual’s withdrawal symptoms and help them through the process of detoxification is a common form of treatment. The specific medication and methods that are used depend on the individual’s specific needs.
- Counseling. Different types of psychotherapy or talk therapy are used to help individuals recognize the factors contributing to their substance abuse, learn how to resist cravings and break habits, and learn skills to prevent relapse.
