Prescription drug abuse has become a growing concern for millions of Americans across the nation. The intention behind these prescription drugs is to support individuals in treating symptoms of a medical condition or behavioral or mental health disorder. When used as prescribed, these medications can support individuals in having a reduction in the symptoms that you face and minimize any severe side effects in order to assist you in healthy body and mind functioning. However, these prescription drugs can become highly addictive when they are abused. Oftentimes, individuals will begin abusing these prescription drugs as an attempt to self medicate from the presenting symptoms that you are experiencing or as a way to numb distressing emotions or traumas that have impacted how you can manage your day to day life. The longer you engage in substance abuse, the more your body becomes physically reliant on these substances to function normally throughout the day making it challenging to quit your drug use cold turkey. While it can feel overwhelming to tackle your drug addiction on your own, there is hope to safely overcome your prescription drug addiction with the support of an addiction treatment program.

Methadone Detox in Torrance
Methadone is a form of prescription drug that is used to support patients in safely overcoming an opioid addiction. Methadone is a form of opioids that works to block the opioid receptors in the brain and provide a similar feeling of relief from your withdrawal symptoms allowing you to safely detox from stronger opioids such as fentanyl or heroin. Many patients that are living with an opioid addiction will turn to methadone treatment as a way to ease the severity of withdrawal symptoms in order to be able to complete an opioid detox. However, due to methadone also being classified as an opioid, there is still potential for methadone to be abused. Individuals that abuse methadone will have similar effects of taking other opioids such as feelings of pain relief, and euphoria. Patients in Torrance drug rehab that have begun abusing methadone will be encouraged to complete a detox process that will help you safely detox from methadone with a slow tapering off process. This will work to maintain your physical and mental health as you restore your body and health to normal functioning.
