Prescription drugs have become the most widely used substance in the nation behind marijuana and alcohol. Many people who become addicted to prescription medications don’t realize their dependence until it’s too late. However, Vertava Health Mississippi offers an effective prescription drug addiction treatment program to help our patients heal.
How Prescription Drug Addiction Develops
Prescription drug use and addiction have become an epidemic in the United States. With prescriptions more available than ever, countless Americans are becoming addicted to prescribed drugs every day. Once dependence on a substance occurs, a person may have a hard time functioning without the drug. This can ultimately lead to use and addiction.
Regardless of how a person becomes addicted to medication, seeking treatment is the best decision that can be made to overcome a substance use disorder. Vertava Health Mississippi offers comprehensive treatment programs for individuals struggling with prescription drug use and addiction.

How We Treat Prescription Drug Addiction
Prescription drug use affects every demographic and can be devastating to a person’s personal and professional life. Individuals who are addicted to prescription medications are at an increased risk of health problems, self-destructive behavior, and overdose. However, there are a number of different treatment options available for those looking to reclaim their lives from prescription drug addiction.
Vertava Health Mississippi offers customized treatment plans for prescription drug abuse and addiction. Many patients benefit from medically supervised detox followed by inpatient and outpatient care.
Inpatient treatment is often considered the most successful approach to drug use and addiction. This form of treatment requires patients to live in our prescription drug rehab center for several weeks or months and undergo intensive and daily addiction treatment.
Outpatient treatment is one option for those struggling with an addiction to prescription drugs. This form of treatment is typically only recommended for individuals with a less severe substance use disorder or people who cannot get away from daily responsibilities for an extended period of time.
Our outpatient program consists of meeting with a therapist several times a week for various types of therapy. Individual and group therapy are the most common forms of treatment used in outpatient programs.
Therapies and Services We Offer
The most common types of treatment used to treat prescription drug addiction include:
- Medication-assisted treatment (MAT) – Medication-assisted treatment is when a safer and less addictive substance is used to relieve cravings and withdrawal symptoms. Currently, there are medications that can be used to treat opioid and alcohol addiction.
- Behavioral therapy – Counseling and therapy are integral parts of treatment programs for prescription drug addiction. Various therapies may also be incorporated into a program of recovery. Behavioral therapies such as cognitive-behavioral therapy have proven highly successful in treating prescription drug addiction.
- Alternative Therapies – We offer alternative therapies to support patients’ treatment plans. Alternative therapies commonly used in addiction treatment include yoga therapy, art therapy, and nutrition counseling.
- 12-step groups – 12-step groups are often integrated into a treatment program for overcoming addiction. Many treatment centers will introduce support groups like Narcotics Anonymous to patients and encourage them to continue participating in the groups after treatment.
Vertava Health Mississippi’s prescription drug use and addiction programs will provide customized treatment plans for each patient. This ensures that each person’s needs are being met and that he or she has the best chance at recovery.
