Prescription Drug Addiction Treatment in Vermont

Get Started Today

Prescription drug misuse happens when individuals use prescription drugs in a way not intended by the prescriber. It commonly occurs when individuals use too much of someone else’s prescription or grind up pills to get high. Misuse may lead to substance use disorder when it happens frequently.

If you seek treatment for yourself or a loved one with a prescription drug use disorder, Sana at Stowe provides recovery options. We guide people through detoxification and treatment and offer ongoing support throughout recovery. We use safe and comfortable treatment methods, including everything from therapy to medication-assisted detox. Our Vermont treatment facility offers a luxurious and serene environment for recovery.

Signs of Prescription Drug Misuse

Prescription drug misuse commonly occurs with opioids, sedatives, and stimulants. The most misused drugs include Norco, Xanax, Valium, Ambien, Ritalin, and Adderall XR. Here are a few signs that an individual may have a prescription drug use disorder:

  • Forging or stealing prescriptions
  • Showing hostile behavior or mood swings
  • Taking higher doses than prescribed
  • Making poor decisions
  • Exhibiting unusual energy levels
  • Sleeping more or less than normal
  • Trying to get prescriptions from multiple prescribers

Beyond these common signs, those who misuse drugs will show symptoms associated with the prescriptions they take. These may include drowsiness, confusion, poor coordination, and agitation.

Effects of Prescription Drug Misuse

While the type of prescription drugs used will determine the effects, you may notice a few common health issues from long-term misuse. These include lung or heart disease, cancer, and brain and nervous system damage. Substance use disorders often coexist with mental illness, and drug use can sometimes trigger or worsen these disorders. Prescription drug misuse also has social consequences, including legal trouble, lost relationships, and difficulty in school or work.

Rehabilitation From Sana at Stowe

Sana at Stowe follows a comprehensive and science-backed prescription drug rehabilitation process to guide individuals toward recovery from prescription drug misuse. The process begins with a detox. During this time, we will closely monitor withdrawal symptoms and use medication and other means to make the process more comfortable and safe.

The length of detox and the symptoms of withdrawal may vary based on the types of prescriptions taken. During a prior evaluation, we work with you to design a unique treatment plan, accounting for the kind of substance and the length of time you took it.

Following the detox process, we offer residential treatment to continue recovery. This stage of treatment includes:

The particular treatment varies by patient, as we offer individualized care. This stage aims to find the causes of addiction and help you develop long-term strategies to avoid relapse.
