Depending upon the nature of the addiction, RiverMend Health Centers offer several program options including inpatient programs, intensive outpatient programs, residential programs and partial hospitalization treatment programs. We provide these life-changing solutions for men, women, and adolescents in a warm, compassionate setting. Our treatment approaches to treat prescription drug abuse include:
The initial comprehensive assessment at RiverMend Health Centers is a critical component in our customized treatment program for prescription drug abuse recovery. This evaluation is designed to help us create a recovery plan tailored to meet your unique challenges and needs. The initial evaluation includes stabilization, medical history review, physical exam, and a comprehensive interview with an addiction specialist to understand any dual disorders that may be present alongside prescription drug abuse such as depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, BDP, PTSD, eating disorders or other behavioral health conditions. Dual diagnosis is critical to understand when creating an individual’s recovery plan, because it will dramatically affect how treatment be administered to the patient.
Therapy & Counseling
Prescription drug abuse is highly treatable through several therapy modules such as dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT), cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), individual therapy, group therapy, and gender group therapy.
Due to the complexity of prescription drug abuse, it’s important to tackle the addiction from all angles. In addition to traditional addiction therapy and counseling, RiverMend Health Centers also offers experiential techniques to treat addiction including art therapy, expressive group, meditation and mindfulness, yoga, and other holistic techniques
Family members of loved ones using prescription drugs are profoundly affected by the addiction on a deeper level. At RiverMend Health Centers, we strongly encourage family member and friends to actively participate in our family program which allows loved ones to learn about prescription drug abuse, enabling triggers, and gain deeper insight into the disease. We also offer multi-family group sessions to foster connectedness with other families that have endured similar experiences. Through time, dedication, and understanding, trust and healing can be restored.
Like other chronic illnesses such as asthma, heart disease, and diabetes, pain pill addictions should be managed daily after completing treatment to sustain lifelong sobriety. At RiverMend Health Centers, we believe relapse prevention techniques are critical to long-term recovery success, which is why our expert team constructs relapse prevention programs, highly tailored to meet the individual lifestyle needs of every patient after their time with us.
