Prescription Drug Misuse

Prescription drugs are those that are prescribed by a licensed professional, such as a physician, veterinarian, or dentist. Some of the more common prescription drugs of misuse are OxyContin, Percocet, Vicodin, Valium, Xanax, and certain stimulants such as Ritalin, Adderall, and Dexedrine. Prescription drug misuse is of particular concern for professionals that become addicted and fail to manage the professional and/or personal life owing to the addiction. The following represent some of the common prescription drug addiction areas and our programs. Antidepressant Misuse: Antidepressants are commonly prescribed drugs which have substantial misuse potential. Our physicians can assist with anti-depressant detox. Antidepressants are generally categorized into several classes or categories, including SSRIs (Selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors), SNRIs (Serotonin-norepinephrine reuptake inhibitors), NRIs (Norepinephrine reuptake inhibitors), Norepinephrine-dopamine reuptake inhibitors, TCAs (Tricyclic antidepressants), MAOIs (Monoamine oxidase inhibitors), NASSAa (Noradrenergic and specific serotonergic antidepressants). Benzodiazepines (Anti-Anxiety Drugs) Addiction: Benzodiazepines, such as Valium and Xanax, are commonly prescribed to treat anxiety, insomnia, muscle spasms, or other disorders. Although benzodiazepines are generally considered safe, long term use can cause dependency. Some of the more commonly prescribed benzodiazepines are Xanax, Valium, Halcion, Buspar, Restoril, and Ativan. Withdraw from these drugs can manifest as depression, tremors, insomnia, fear and anxiety. Our experts can assist in detoxification from benzodiazepines. Prescription Opiate Misuse: Our opiate detox program focuses on a variety of opiates, including natural and synthetic narcotics such as morphine, codeine, oxycodone, oxycontin and hydrocodone. Opiate addiction (narcotic addiction) is often encountered when the patient becomes addicted after receiving opiates for pain control. Opiates work by blocking pain perception, and can often provide the patient a sense of euphoria. This strong euphoric sensation can be very addictive. In addition, relief from pain is also a compelling reason that many become addicted to prescription pain drugs. When persons stop taking the opiate, they may experience withdrawal which can be very uncomfortable.

Illicit Drug Misuse

Illicit drug use can refer to a variety of different substance misuse problems. Illicit drugs are those that are sold on the street illegally, ranging from homemade drugs such as crack cocaine, meth, and heroin to prescription drugs that are stolen and sold on the street. Therefore, illicit, or “street drugs” are a catchall phrase where a person obtains the drug usually from a drug dealer. Many professionals refer to street drugs as recreational drugs, often using these to escape the stress of work. The use of these types of drugs may initially start as weekend use, but can often spiral into daily use and misuse which can affect personal and professional situations. Other common street drugs are classed as hallucinogens which alter perception, such a visual, hearing, smell and even touch perceptions. Drugs such as LSD, Ecstasy (often spelled Extasy), and certain mushrooms (often called magic mushrooms) can cause hallucinations. Heroin and Opioid Addiction: Heroin addiction is one of the most challenging substances to overcome. Heroin withdrawal can be physically and emotionally demanding, so having medical experts assist in heroin detox is very important. Heroin, a morphine derivative, is a potent opiate from the opium poppy plant. Heroin is often referred to as smack, horse, black tar, brown sugar, mud, big H, or skag. The use of heroin can result in rapid heroin addiction. Heroin addiction is often devastating to the person, causing social, financial, and emotional struggles. Without intervention, many people using heroin struggle to find recovery. Heroin detox is the first step in recovery. Our heroin detox experts provide a medically supervised heroin detox program, overseeing the withdrawal period. In most cases, heroin detox withdrawal has its peak from 36-72 hours after the last dose of heroin, so having medical supervision to ensure appropriate measures are taken is very important for heroin detox. Opioids is the overall name referring to the broader category of substances. Heroin is a naturally occurring opiate, whereas synthetic opiates (like morphine) are referred to as opioids. Synthetic opioids are typically prescribed by a doctor and include codeine, oxycodone, oxycontin and hydrocodone. Opioid addiction is often encountered when the patient becomes psychically (and sometimes psychologically) dependent upon the substances after receiving it for pain control. Professionals seeking detox for opioids can receive expert treatment at our facility. Marijuana (cannabis) Misuse: Marijuana, also referred to as grass or pot, is one of the most commonly used recreational drug in the United States. The use of marijuana can impair judgment and sometimes lead to psychosis or paranoia. Smoking marijuana can also dull perception and reduce concentration, which can affect a person’s decision making process. Methamphetamine (Meth, Crystal Meth) Addiction: Methamphetamine use and addiction is one of the most rapidly growing problems facing many professionals across the United States. Methamphetamine(s), also referred to as “Meth” or “Crystal Meth”, are stimulants that can cause a sense of euphoria that is very addictive. Methamphetamines are stimulants that increase brain activity for short periods of time, but as they are eliminated from the body the person can feel irritable, tired, exhausted, and desiring more of the drug. Common street terms for methamphetamine(s) are Crank, Speed, Ice, Crystal, ChaChaCha, Crystal Meth, Chalk, and White Cross. Meth addiction can occur rapidly. The physical dependency on methamphetamine often manifests as anxiety, depression, obsessive behavior, and compulsion. In severe meth addiction, the person may experience hallucinations, delusions, aggression, and even death. Because of the physical and emotional dependency caused by methamphetamines, it is important to have a medically supervised facility with qualified nurses and physicians to assist in the detox process.
