A women’s prescription drug addiction rehab program will look slightly different depending on the drug(s) you’re addicted to.
For example, opioid addiction may start with a medication called methadone. This works to alleviate withdrawal symptoms and relieve cravings. It’s proven to be quite effective when used correctly, though it’s not a complete and long-term cure. This can help you manage things in the short term, but you still need proper treatment and therapy to eliminate the addiction for good.
Several medications are approved for use in treating various prescription drug medications, but they should not be seen or used as a whole treatment. For most, counseling and therapy are crucial parts of recovery.
At Lily Recovery, our counselors and therapists are highly qualified and have experience with a wide variety of treatments. This includes the popular cognitive behavioural therapy, motivational interviewing, solution-focused therapy, and so much more.
Our program includes plenty of private sessions between you and a therapist, along with group therapy and discussion. We find that both of these methods combined offer the most effective treatment with a high chance of long-term success.
We also offer dual-diagnosis prescription drug rehab for women. Many suffer from mental health issues and other things at the same time as their addiction. Our professionals are trained and equipped to handle this as well – many of our therapies are conducive to treating addiction along with various co-current disorders.
Undergoing regular and professional therapy for prescription drug addiction can help you in many ways:
- You’ll determine what may have led you to abuse and become addicted to prescription drugs. This could include underlying mental health issues, among other things.
- You’ll learn the skills you need to manage and resist cravings, prevent future issues and addictions, and generally avoid the abuse of drugs going forward.
- You’ll identify ways to create a healthier life with better boundaries and activities that have nothing to do with drugs.
- You’ll learn strategies and skills for developing healthy and meaningful relationships.
- You’ll learn what to do and the steps to take should a relapse occur.
While you’ll make great strides with these therapies in our women-only prescription drug rehab center, your progress will be further enhanced through group therapy. There are many proven benefits to group sessions that’ll give you an even great chance of successful recovery:
- You’ll feel less alone as you surround yourself with like-minded women and hear their stories. Whether similar to yours or not, you’ll have a community of people with the same goal.
- Hearing the progress reports and success stories of others, it’ll give you a fresh infusion of hope and confidence in your own treatment and therapy.
- You’ll learn additional coping mechanisms and strategies as you discuss experiences and successful techniques.
- You’ll gain confidence in yourself and your ability to share. This can translate to more comfort and confidence even in private therapy.
