Pittsburgh, PA (PRWEB) September 28, 2013
New treatments targeting prescription medication addiction and recovery are now available at Drug Rehab Center Pittsburgh and have proven beneficial to many patients. Jay M., a certified addiction specialist at Drug Rehab Center Pittsburgh, describes the effectiveness of the new prescription medication programs, “After leaving rehab, patients will not be able to avoid visiting the doctor’s office forever, which is why our programs are so important. We strive to provide patients with the tools they need to avoid the temptation to acquire a prescription again after leaving treatment.”
Avoiding potentially addictive medications once outside of rehab can be hard for patients, which is why alternative techniques are so important. Jay explains, “At Drug Rehab Center Pittsburgh, we strive to help patients treat their illnesses without developing addictions to their medication. Drug addiction and dependency can negatively affect a person’s life in a variety of ways. This is why we work so hard to help our patients improve their lives with sobriety.”
Prescriptions to highly addictive drugs can be obtained legally by patients at a doctor’s office to treat legitimate medical issues. If prescribed and used correctly, they can be safe, but an addiction to something found in a medical setting can be just as dangerous as an addiction to an illegal street drug. This is why the new programs available at Drug Rehab Center Pittsburgh now focus on helping patients say no to potentially addicting prescription drugs as well as identifying and treating medical conditions that originally caused them to abuse drugs.
The new addiction and recovery programs place heavy emphasis on alternative forms of medication which are less likely to become harmful or addicting. These programs also include alternative forms of therapy and medicine such as yoga, meditation, acupuncture, and other holistic options. The dedicated and caring staff members work directly with each and every patient to find coping mechanisms and therapies that will work for their individual forms of addiction.
