Despite concerted efforts to curb its presence in Akron and cities all across America, the existential complexities of prescription drug addiction makes it a difficult foe to defeat. Although prescription drug treatment programs are widely available, and legislations have been enacted to address the problem, distribution and addiction to prescription drugs remains a major problem.

One Ohio lawmaker called prescription medication addiction a scourge that knows no socioeconomic boundaries. Specific prescription drug treatment programs offer hope for those who are already caught in the trap of addition. Our facility specializes in prescription drug treatment offering various options for recovery.

At Akron Drug Treatment Center, prescription drug treatment is customized for each individual. Options for treatment include:

  • Residential/Inpatient
  • Intensive outpatient
  • Partial Hospitalization

Our addiction treatment programs zero in on the specific issues facing the patient. A careful evaluation, consisting of biological, psychological and sociological assessments, provides our board certified medical team with enough information to compile an in-depth client profile. A comprehensive profile is essential in directing the design of the treatment program that will be administered. Often, during the evaluation, clinicians identify co-occurring disorders that may have triggered the addiction or perpetuated it. In any event, when a dual diagnosis is identified, the treatment plan is expanded to address mental illness, past traumatic experiences or other challenges that could trigger a relapse after rehab.

With permission from the person seeking treatment, our counselors encourage family participation in the addict’s rehabilitation process. Family participation can make significant contributions to understanding the family dynamics and living environment that the addict has been dealing with and may have to return to following treatment.

Working closely with the family helps to educate everyone, and addresses enabling behavior and problems caused by the addiction. The end result is usually a strong support system for the recovering addict as well as improved family relationships. These elements all help to sustain sobriety.

Treatment Programs

Treatment for prescription drug addiction at Akron Drug Treatment Centers is comprehensive and integrative.

Detox: The first step is to halt drug use and begin the process of eliminating the accumulation of toxins caused by habitual abuse. The detoxification process is a carefully monitored procedure. All our addiction specialists have emergency trauma training to handle any medical crisis that should occur from adverse withdrawal symptoms. Because withdrawal symptoms differ for each person, our staff provides round-the-clock monitoring and ongoing evaluation, even after the withdrawal symptoms have subsided.

Rehabilitation: This is where the real work of overcoming prescription drug addiction begins. Based on your individualized treatment plan, you will participate in various therapy sessions that are designed to address the underlying issues that caused the addiction in the first place. Psychotherapy has been shown to be most effective in helping addics to avoid a relapse. We offer:

  • Behavioral/Cognitive Therapy
  • Individual therapy session
  • Family Therapy
  • Group Therapy

Holistic and other alternative treatment protocols augment and enhance traditional remedies. Empirical research and years of successful application of acupuncture, yoga, meditation and massage makes these services an integral part of the rehabilitation process for prescription drug addiction.
