Prescription drug abuse is when drugs prescribed by a doctor are not used in the way they were meant to be. This includes taking a larger dose than prescribed, crushing and snorting pills, or using somebody else’s prescription recreationally.

It is easy to become addicted to prescription drugs. Many are powerful and can stimulate your brain’s pleasure centers, or block pain. If use continues, over time your brain will become used to the presence of the drug, and it will take more and more to be able to feel pleasure at all. Becoming addicted to prescription drugs can even begin by taking the amount your doctor has prescribed for an extended period.

At Muse Treatment, the top-rated prescription drug rehab for residents of Sacramento, California, our belief is that nobody needs to feel unnecessary discomfort when detoxing off drugs. Withdrawal symptoms are a normal part of detox, but that does not mean you have to suffer through them unassisted.

We screen our patients when they enter our facility to get to know you and to find out if a dual diagnosis treatment will be necessary. We will find out about your mental health, physical health, and if there are any other issues you would like to deal with. We then formulate a customized treatment plan based off what you have told us, and what we have learned about you. This plan will be created to suit your specific goals, needs, and body.

We make detoxing as pain-free and safe as possible with our medically assisted treatment (MAT). Used in tandem with counseling and therapy, a MAT program will ensure you are as comfortable as possible, and don’t need to go through physical and emotional pain alone.

Once detox is over, you can easily transition into residential rehab. Muse Addiction Treatment Center provides a full range of integrated treatment options, so moving to the next step is simple and happens in the same facility.

During rehab, you will work on recovery skills through therapy, classes, and groups in a serene and welcoming place. Our sober community will ensure you have opportunities to forge new friendships, and there are sports, games, and activities you can participate in if you wish.

Our staff values you as a person. We know that everybody has their own story, and addiction is sometimes tied in with serious life or mental health issues, so we use a trauma-informed approach in our treatment regimens. We want you to feel respected, safe and informed every step of the way. Our first-rate facilities and our empathetic, non-judgmental staff will make sure your time at Muse is comfortable while you work on yourself and your recovery.

What is RX Rehab Like?

Prescription drug rehab at Muse incorporates dual diagnosis treatments, so conditions like mental illness and trauma are addressed alongside physical addiction. The majority of the time, these issues are intertwined, and getting to the root of addiction necessitates getting to the root of other issues as well.

We consider all aspects of our patients’ lives, health history, and well-being, because we know you are a unique individual person, not just an addiction checklist.

Our integrated treatment plan will give you the support you need to begin living a self-directed life without drugs or alcohol.

What to Expect During RX Rehab?

During residential rehab for prescription drug addiction, you will be living in our structured, community-oriented environment, surrounded by peers. Our highly trained clinical providers are available to offer emotional support and help you gain the skills and knowledge you will need to live a self-directed, drug-free life once you leave the facility.

Most of your day will be filled with vocational training, life skills training, and therapy. We have therapies like:

  • Medical Assisted Treatment (MAT)
  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
  • Rational Emotive Behavioral Therapy (REBT)
  • Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT)
  • Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR)
  • Experiential Therapy
  • Couples and family therapies

Everybody is different, so our wide variety of therapy options and other programs are there to help create a realistic, personalized treatment program that works for you. Along with group therapies like SMART therapy or 12-step programs, you can also expect to work on your physical health with nutritional coaching, and access to fitness equipment. At Muse California, we take excursions out of the facility to beaches to go surfing, and to the mountains for hikes.

The combination of mental health treatment, behavioral therapy, clinical care, and physical health care will create a balance that will help you gain clarity, rest, and strength while rehabilitating.

How Long Does Rx Rehab Sacramento Last?

At Muse Addiction Treatment Center, our minimum stay in rehab is 30 days, and we have 60- and 90-day options as well, which are recommended for those who have a history of relapse, or who feel they need the extra time and help.

After your stay in our inpatient rehab program, we recommend you transition into an outpatient program for relapse prevention purposes. Once you get back into your regular routines, see old friends, and experience the stress, boredom, loneliness, or pressure of life, the temptation to use drugs may return. This is why aftercare is so important.

We always encourage our patients to stay in rehab for as long as they need, and we can also offer referrals to sober living homes, where you will be held accountable and have to follow rules like random drug testing, curfews, and mandatory participation in chores and meetings. These homes are all different, so there will likely be one near to you that can help you and will fit your specific needs.  

For additional support, you can join our alumni network. This is a group of people who have also gone through a Muse Treatment program and want to stay connected with a positive sober group of people. This network can offer mentorship and advice and provides opportunities to forge sober friendships.

Everybody’s timeline for rehab is different, but the truth is that the longer you remain in rehab, the better your chances are for remaining sober long-term.

Top Abused Prescription Drugs

Prescription drugs are available in nearly everybody’s bathroom cabinet. You, your family members, and friends have likely been prescribed something in your lifetime with the potential for abuse.

Abuse of prescription drugs is common because it almost always starts out innocuously. You may take one extra pain pill, your friend may give you some of the medication they are taking, or you buy somebody’s stimulant pills to help you study for a test. You begin to enjoy the feeling the drug gives you and take more. Soon you become dependent on the drug, as the brain’s reward centers are flooded with dopamine, and over time you find it hard to feel pleasure without using the drug.

Some of the top abused prescription drugs are:

  • Opioids – these are often prescribed for pain. They produce a euphoric feeling because they attach to opioid receptors in the brain to prevent it from receiving pain messages.
  • Central Nervous System Depressants like barbiturates and benzodiazepines – these are tranquilizers that slow down brain activity, giving a calm or sedated feeling.
  • Stimulants – these drugs increase brain activity, boosting alertness and energy levels.

Prescription drug abuse can be dangerous, and become fatal, especially if they are mixed with alcohol or other drugs, or if they are misused. Overdoses can easily occur, landing you in the hospital or worse.

Stopping these drugs can also have serious withdrawal side effects, so it is recommended to be professionally supervised while detoxing. A medically assisted treatment plan will allow you to detox from prescription drugs safely and as comfortably as possible.
