What Causes A Prescription Drug Addiction?
Prescription drug addictions often arise when prescription drugs are consumed for longer than medical professionals recommend them.
Typically, prescription drugs such as those used to treat sleep disorders are only recommended for a short period. This is because prescription drugs can be extremely addictive.
If prescription drugs are required to treat long-term illnesses, most prescriptions only provide a three-month supply.
Furthermore, when frequently consumed, tolerance to prescription drugs increases. This essentially means to take advantage of the effects that prescription drugs provide, a greater volume of drugs must be consumed. However, this is not safe nor recommended.
Sadly, when larger volumes of prescription drugs are required, dependencies arise, and addictions come to impair the lives of many.

Treatment For Prescription Drug Addiction
Treatment for prescription drug addictions often includes detoxification, rehabilitation and aftercare support. If necessary, dual diagnosis is also provided to those who require prescription drug addiction treatment with mental health support.
While these treatments are commonly administered when prescription drug addiction treatment & rehab is required, at Asana Lodge, we tailor our treatment offerings to the needs of each of our clients.
This ensures that recovery can be maintained in the weeks, months and years following prescription drug addiction treatment & rehab.
Tailored Treatment Programmes At Asana Lodge
Focusing on healing the mind and body, our tailored treatment programmes incorporate treatments such as drug detox, drug rehab, psychological therapies, well-being therapies and dual diagnosis treatment, should it be needed.
Each stage of our treatment programmes help our clients combat their prescription drug addictions, ultimately enabling them to defeat the addiction that has controlled their life. In turn, many go on to make a long-term recovery, free from the shackles of addiction.
Detoxification, for example, initiates the withdrawal process that removes harmful toxins from the brain and body.
While detoxification can be uncomfortable as withdrawal symptoms come hand-in-hand, this is a vital stage in prescription drug addiction treatment & rehab. Without drug detox, dependencies and cravings cannot be overcome.
Following detoxification, prescription drug rehab is encountered. Within this stage of treatment, psychological and well-being therapies are administered to help those in recovery come to terms with their addiction.
While the therapies provided are dependent on the personal needs of our clients, those who attend our drug and alcohol rehab for Prescription Drug addiction treatment & rehab can expect to encounter at least one of the following therapies.
- Satori Chair Therapy
- Cognitive behavioural therapy
- Trauma counselling
- Abuse counselling
- Stress management
- Family therapy
- Art therapy
- Relaxation and sleep management
In addition to detoxification and rehabilitation, our treatment programmes equip our clients with an aftercare plan.
Aftercare plans are also available to clients, free of charge, for 12 months after successful completion of residential 28-day rehab. The aftercare programme involves weekly sessions held on Zoom with members of the recovery team. Clients will also have 24/7 access to call the medical staff for any concerns or advice.
Should you attend our rehab for prescription drug addiction treatment & rehab, upon completing your treatment programme, you will have access to 12-months of aftercare support. We encourage all of our clients to take advantage of this additional support. Without it, the risk of relapse is much greater.
