Do I really need prescription drug rehab?

We know that recognising the need for help can be complicated, so if you are unsure of whether you or a loved one require prescription drug rehab, the following questions may help:

  • Have you attempted to stop using prescription drugs but found it too difficult?
  • Have you felt irritable since you have been using prescription drugs?
  • Have you gone against your doctor’s instruction by taking more pills, taking them more frequently, or taking them in ways other than prescribed?
  • Do you find yourself thinking about your next dosage of prescribed drugs?
  • Do you feel as if you can not get through your daily routine without the help of prescription drugs?
  • Have you stolen or forged prescriptions or seen multiple doctors to obtain more of the drug?
  • Have you felt drowsy, fearful, or paranoid since using prescription medication?
  • Have you noticed gradual damage to your health – such as slurred speech, memory loss, constipation, flu-like symptoms, etc. – since starting prescription medication?

If the answer to any of these is yes, it is worth reaching out to a rehab specialist or mental health professional. Our support team is here to discuss your questions and concerns and inform you about our various treatment options.
