New Jersey Prescription Drug Rehab Center

Prescription medications can be used to improve the quality of life for those who are living with physical health and mental health concerns. This can include chronic pain, anxiety disorders, ADHD, and substance use disorders. A known risk with controlled substances is the risk of developing an addiction. 

The National Center for Drug Abuse Statistics (NCDAS) reported that 16.3 million people misuse prescription medications annually in the United States. Misuse of prescriptions can be done unintentionally, for example, someone may have accidentally taken their next dose too soon without realizing it.

However, approximately 18.4% of Americans 12 and older have misused prescriptions intentionally at one point in their life. The misuse of these medications can be to cope with emotional distress, and physical pain, to experiment with substances, and to get high. 

NCDAS reported that the most commonly abused psychotherapeutic prescriptions are Adderall, Ativan, Morphine, Oxycodone, Ritalin, Vicodin, and Xanax.

How Do Prescription Medications Affect the Body?

There are various changes that occur when someone takes prescription medications. The effects that someone experiences will be dependent on the class of medication that is being taken. As an example, opioids are commonly used to treat pain. Opioids bind to the opioid receptors in your brain, which can decrease physical pain, and provide relief from emotional distress. Individuals who abuse opioids may appear to be nodding out, have constricted pupils, be confused, constipation, and severe sweating.  

Benzodiazepines, barbiturates, and sleep medications fall into the category of depressants. With these medications, an individual can experience relief for insomnia, panic attacks, seizures, and anxiety disorders because the Central Nervous System is impacted. Individuals may experience slurred speech, drowsiness, confusion, memory challenges, and muscle weakness when abusing depressant medications. 

Amphetamines are commonly prescribed stimulant medications. Amphetamines can increase attention, energy levels, and alertness. These medications can be used to treat attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. Individuals who are abusing amphetamines may experience stomach pain, nausea, dizziness, and headache, and develop sleeping challenges. 

As the ideal New Jersey prescription rehab center, Wellness Recovery Center utilizes a whole-body approach to ensure that you receive the treatment and support you need for a healthy recovery. We encourage you to call (866)861-3449 to speak with a representative now!

Health Risks

Dangers of Prescription Misuse and Abuse

As with all medications, there is a potential for short-term and long-term health concerns. The chances of this increase for individuals who misuse and abuse their medications. Perhaps the most notable short-term health risk of prescription medication abuse is the risk of an overdose. 

An overdose can occur when an individual takes too much of a substance, which can lead to seizures and death. Examples of medications that can cause an overdose include pain medications, other opioids, benzodiazepines, and cough medicines containing dextromethorphan. 

Long-term misuse and abuse of prescription medications can cause permanent organ damage and failure, other health concerns, and new or worsening mental health concerns. Additionally, your doctor may stop prescribing you your medication if they are concerned about your ability to take it as prescribed, which could mean that you would have to try other ways to treat your original health concern.

The Effects of Prescription Medication Misuse and Abuse

Some of the physical signs of impairment that you would notice in someone would be dependent on the class of medication that they take. Some of the shared symptoms that you may observe in someone who is misusing or abusing prescription medications include:

  • Taking more than they were prescribed
  • Running out of medications early
  • Doctor shopping
  • Supplementing with medication purchased illegally
  • Being defensive about their medication
  • The presence of withdrawal symptoms
  • Experiencing cravings
  • Mood swings and irritability
  • Changes in appearance and hygiene
  • Withdrawing from family, friends, hobbies, and other interests

It is important to remember that someone may be taking their medication to manage a mental health concern that can have symptoms that resemble some of the signs and symptoms of prescription misuse and abuse. When talking to a loved one about your concern, it is important to be mindful of how you approach the topic and voice your concerns. We may have an idea of what someone is experiencing, but the truth is that we don’t truly know until we ask.
