Though such a desert paradise like Scottsdale, Arizona might not seem like the type of place drug addiction could strike,housewives are painting a very different picture. According to a few brave women willing to speak about their experiences, prescription drugs are slowly but surely crippling families across the city.
As a silent, unassuming drug, prescriptions such as Xanax, taken for anxiety, seem harmless. They help relieve daily tension and otherwise allow users to function normally. However, eventually the beneficial aspects wear off as the user becomes numb to the effects. This leads to them upping their dosage by more than the recommended amount. Soon after that, they’re addicted, becoming functioning drug addicts or worse.
The scariest part, however, is the danger it represents to the children. Kids see their parent popping pills regularly and try out the habit with over-the-counter options leading to drug addiction that can end up being deadlier than any street drug.
Without the assistance of professionals in rehab clinics, it’s extremely hard to find true recovery. The moms that have fallen prey to prescription drugs cite their families and the treatment centers as the reasons for their success in overcoming the addiction.
Once they entered rehab, they were placed into a sterile environment free from the normal stresses of life that led to abusing the prescription drugs. Doctors helped them through the physical withdrawal while counselors helped them reassert their mental strength against the drug abuse.
No matter which drug has trapped you in a cycle of addiction, there is help. First things first, you need to make the decision to quit. From there, it’s about following the journey of sobriety one step at a time. If you feel that you or a loved one needs help, reach out to them today.
Knowing When to Travel for Treatment
If you or a loved one is searching for a drug and alcohol rehab center, one of the key decisions you will need to make is where you want to go to rehab geographically. In other words, do you want to stay in your hometown or travel for treatment?
Many of the treatment programs that can be found in other cities offer amenities that you may not find in your home area. For example, some hotel-like features that are more high-end are often in bigger facilities in rural areas. With a holistic approach to recovery, these facilities have yoga classes, specialty meal options, comfortable living arrangements and more. They cater to those who value and are able to pay for such amenities. For those who are looking for more affordable options, outpatient rehabs or those located within city limits may make more sense.
