Misuse of Prescription Pain Medication
Prescription pain medication abuse has become an epidemic in the U.S. It has caused more deaths by overdose than street drugs such as cocaine, heroin and methamphetamine.
Prescription drugs are addictive because they are made from opiates. The use of opiates affects certain areas of the brain responsible for mood and "reward" behaviors. Pain medication such as codeine, oxycontin and hydrocodone are addictive because of their ability to re-wire these areas of the brain producing a heightened sense of euphoria. Like alcohol and drug abuse, pain medication abuse occurs because of the need to experience these feelings on a regular basis.
Depending upon the severity of your addiction, Bluff Plantation offers several treatment programs including inpatient detox, inpatient programs, intensive outpatient programs, residential stay, and partial hospitalization.
