Prescription Drug Addiction Treatment Program in Georgia
Our incredible substance abuse treatment programs feature a combination of talk therapies, holistic treatments, outpatient, and other custom treatment options.
Prescription drug addiction is a growing issue in modern society. Americans and doctors frequently depend on drugs to treat any sign of illness, which creates a culture that views medication as the go-to solution.
Insurance companies also favor prescription drugs for convenience and cost-effectiveness. Prescription painkiller addiction is so common it’s sometimes called opioid use disorder (OUP).
Many individuals become addicted to prescription meds after being prescribed them by healthcare providers for legitimate medical conditions. However, these drugs are powerful and can make people addicted.

Types of Prescription Drug Addictions We Treat
At Southeast Detox, we offer a luxurious and highly personalized recovery journey to individuals struggling with all types of prescription drug abuse.
The three most commonly abused drugs are opioids for pain relief, Benzodiazepines for anxiety or sleep disorders, and stimulants for ADHD treatment. They have a high potential for abuse and can cause severe physical and psychological consequences.
Here are some of the specific challenges associated with each type of prescription drug addiction:
OxyContin and other pain relief opioids like Vicodin, codeine, and morphine can make people addicted and cause dangerous overdoses. If someone becomes addicted to painkillers, they may feel like they need opiates to function normally and feel sick when they try to stop taking them. This can make it an uphill battle. Plus, when people sell painkiller medications illegally, preventing them from getting into the wrong hands can be challenging.
Xanax and Valium are two types of drugs called Benzodiazepines. This type of drug can be addictive and make people rely on them. If someone stops taking them, they can have terrible, even life-threatening, symptoms. Taking Benzos long-term can also make it complicated for people to remember things and think clearly. People who are addicted to these drugs may have a hard time finding other ways to deal with anxiety and trouble sleeping if they stop.
Abusing stimulants like Adderall, Ritalin, or Vyvanse can cause problems with an individual’s heart and mental health, like anxiety, high blood pressure, and feeling out of touch with reality. When someone stops taking stimulants, they may feel tired, unable to focus, and sad. People who rely on stimulants to get work done may struggle to get work done if they suddenly stop.
Additionally, all three types of prescription medication can have social, psychological, and financial consequences for the individual and their loved ones.
