Prescription drug abuse is rampant in the United States. In 2020, the National Institute on Drug Abuse reported that 16.1 million people admitted they’d used a prescription outside of a doctor’s recommendations. Prescription painkillers are the biggest problem — 9.3 million people struggle with them each year.
Kids are also prone to drug abuse, in part because prescriptions are relatively easy to access. In fact, more than 4% of high school seniors have abused prescription medication. Amphetamine use is the most common in kids in grades 8-12.
Prescription Drug Abuse in Arizona
Drug addiction is on the rise in Arizona. As with many places in the country, opioids are the biggest problem; overdoses kill five people in Arizona every day. In 2021, there were 3,379 non-fatal overdoses and 1,917 overdose deaths.
Prescription Drug Rehab and Addiction Treatment
If you or a loved one is struggling with prescription medication, it’s important to get addiction treatment. With the help of medical and psychiatric professionals, it’s possible to recover and reduce dependence on drugs.
Here at Camelback Recovery, our treatment programs use a combination of counseling and medication assisted treatment methods. The exact process varies based on the drug in question, the severity of abuse or addiction, and the individual’s mental and physical health. In some cases, we may recommend starting with a residential inpatient treatment program and medical detox. Our two main substance abuse programs are:
Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP)
Sometimes, it’s impossible to enter full-time residential addiction treatment centers. That’s where the Camelback Recovery partial hospitalization program comes in. You’ll visit our treatment facility in Phoenix, Arizona five days a week, usually for 4-6 hours at a time. Each session is structured and personalized to your needs and typically includes:
- One-on-one and group therapy
- Support group meetings
- Training in stress management
- Medication-assisted treatments
- Community support
Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP)
After you finish PHP, we often recommend entering the Camelback Recovery IOP rehab. You’ll visit our Phoenix addiction treatment center for a few hours three days a week. The program usually continues the therapies you started in the PHP. The goal of our outpatient programs is to help you combat the addiction both mentally and physically. Over time, you’ll learn how to resume a normal life without the interference of the problematic drug.
