Velhavende forsømmelse

Samfundet udtrykker stor bekymring for fattige, undertjente børn og den øgede sandsynlighed for, at de måske mangler adgang til sundhedspleje og uddannelse, eller at de kan henvende sig tilstoffer eller kriminalitet i voksenalderen.

Stigmaer og stereotyper af afhængighed

Mennesker med afhængighed bliver ofte stigmatiseret og stereotype som snublende drukkenbolte eller misbrugere, der skyder op i mørke gyder, eller som winos, crackheads, tweakers eller junkies.

Prescription Drug Addiction Treatment:

Prescription drug abuse occurs when an individual relies on prescription medication to an excessive degree. Prescription drug dependency has become one of the most prolific substance abuse issues worldwide, yet it is much harder to spot because we don’t typically associate drug abuse with a prescription or over-the-counter medicine.

If you think you may have developed a prescription drug addiction, help is available. At Paracelsus Recovery, our prescription drug addiction treatment provides the most exclusive, multidisciplinary, and comprehensive program available.

Our approach to treatment is completely non-judgmental and pragmatic. We design a treatment program based on your situation, realistic possibilities, targets, motivation, and expectations.

The exact treatment will depend on the specific medication or drug and the dosage, as well as other aspects such as personal history and what events lead to prescription drug abuse. We identify and address the issues and reasons underlying the addiction, not just the symptoms. Such underlying issues can be physical, medical, biochemical, psychological, social, or spiritual. We aim to help you find a healthier, happier way of coping with life’s stressors.

Symptoms of Prescription Drug Addiction:

Symptoms of prescription drug addiction include (but are not limited to):

  • Excessive mood swings or hostility.
  • Disrupted sleep (too much or too little).
  • Poor decision-making.
  • Requesting early refills or continually losing prescriptions so that your doctor needs to write more.
  • Withdrawal symptoms such as sweating, anxiety, insomnia, vomiting, or muscle pain when you go without the medication.

 

If you have any of these symptoms and are taking more prescription medication than recommended by your doctor, you may have developed a dependency. If you continue to abuse these substances, they can grow unmanageable and could wreak havoc on your health, lifestyle, career, and relationships. However, decades of research show that detoxification, therapy, and short-term medication to treat withdrawal symptoms can effectively curb prescription drug addiction.

Prescription Drug Addiction:

Regardless of the drug, people can become susceptible to dependency when they are suffering and in pain. Both heroin and ibuprofen can be used as painkillers. However, the stigma of addiction is much more attached to illegal substances than prescription drugs, so the latter can often go unnoticed. There is also the hard truth that certain substances, such as opioids and benzodiazepines, are far more addictive than others. These drugs create a strong physical reaction within our body which can quickly sow the seeds for dependency.

The danger is that when we rely on an external substance to numb ourselves from our feelings and/or physical pain, it weakens the part of our brain that controls self-regulation. In its place, we become dependent on a substance to regulate our emotions, impulses, and pain tolerance. A destructive cycle of addiction can quickly emerge because we become more and more dependent on an external substance to feel physically and emotionally pain-free.

Often, the only way to overcome this pattern is to undergo a medical detox to manage the physical withdrawal symptoms and to work with mental health professionals to manage the psychological withdrawal.

We treat every kind of prescription medication addiction:

Amphetamines.

Analgesics.

GHB.

Ketamine.

Pregabalin (Lyrica).

Psychostimulants. 

Benzodiazepines (Xanax).

Soporifics and tranquilizers (sleeping pills).

We accept clients for inpatient treatment for prescription drug addiction for a minimum of four weeks. An ideal duration is 8-12 weeks though it always depends on individual circumstances. We can sometimes implement a safe withdrawal within 1-2 weeks in our Executive Detox programs. We also recommend an aftercare program following residential treatment and the duration of this will depend on each specific situation. We understand that for most individuals, taking so much time off for treatment is simply not an option so we will facilitate work schedules wherever possible and strive to create a treatment program that works for you.

We tailor-make each treatment program to suit the needs of each client. This means that the therapies and complementary therapies included will be dependent on your unique needs and expectations. In general, the treatment program includes extensive one-to-one work with a core psychotherapeutic team consisting of a psychiatrist, psychotherapist, and live-in therapist who will work around the clock to ensure your treatment is as effective as possible.
