Prescription drugs are largely to blame for the recent increase in overall drug use in America. The drugs that have a high potential for abuse have been rising for the last decade steadily and are now at epidemic levels.
According to the latest National Survey on Drug Use and Health, there are now roughly seven million people in the U.S. that take prescription drugs non-medically (abuse them). Prescription drugs that are abused aren't the only ones that cause problems for society. There are millions of other prescription drug users that have to deal with the side effects from the drugs, and many of the medications given to people in more traditional addiction treatment settings have actually been found to prevent recovery or even cause relapse. For these reasons, we do not recommend going with a program that only subsitutes drugs instead of handling the addiction permanently, especially for prescription drug rehabilitation.

These are some of the most common forms of rehabilitation programs available today:
Opiates - these highly addictive substances include prescription drugs such as OxyContin, Vicodin, Dilaudid, Percocet, Lortab and many others. It also includes synthetic opiates such as methadone. An estimated 5.3 million people were past-month abusers of painkillers last year. There are millions more who are dependent on their prescription painkillers and methadone, and the number of prescription opiate-related overdose deaths have skyrocketed across the country.
Stimulants - prescriptions in this category include drugs like Ritalin and Adderall, which are horribly prescribed to millions of kids, teenagers and adults around the country, creating even more dependency. Even without that, roughly 800,000 used prescription stimulants nonmedically last year.
Tranquilizers - include benzodiazepines such as Ativan, Valium, Xanax and Klonopin. Roughly 2 million people abused these drugs last year, and millions more are hooked on their prescriptions.
Sedatives - sleep aids such as Ambien are primarily to blame for the more than 350,000 past-month abusers of these types of drugs during the previous year.
