What is prescription drug abuse?

Prescription drug abuse is when someone is taking a drug without the permission of their doctors. Prescription drugs are meant to be used to relieve severe pain or treat illness, as directed by a medical professional, but some people misuse prescription medication for different reasons. Some people may take more of the drug than prescribed, while others may take it more often than they should. Some examples of prescription drugs include Benzodiazepines (Alprazolam, clonazepam, and diazepam), Stimulants (Mydayis, Adderall, Adderall XR, and Dextroamphetamine), and Painkillers (Opioids).

Prescription drug abuse can lead to serious health problems, including drug dependence, addiction, overdose, and even death. If you or someone you know is abusing prescription drugs, it’s important to get help as soon as possible. There are many resources available to help those struggling with substance use disorder, and prescription drug addiction treatment can make a big difference.

Why is prescription drug abuse increasing?

There are a number of reasons why prescription drug abuse is increasing. One reason is that prescriptions for these drugs are becoming more and more common and easily accessible. For example, more people are being prescribed opioids for pain relief, and this means that there are more of these prescription opioids available for people to abuse compared to other drugs, such as illegal narcotics.

A common myth that contributes to the increasing rate of prescription drug misuse is that people believe prescription drugs are safer than taking street drugs because they are legal with a doctor’s approval. However, many prescription medications, especially prescription opioids, can be addictive and come with serious long-term effects, which is one of the reasons why prescription drug addiction accounts for 60% of all overdose-related deaths.

Signs and symptoms of prescription drug abuse

If you or someone you know is abusing prescription drugs, there are certain signs and symptoms to look out for. Start to look for prescription drug rehab centers and be ready to enter rehab as soon as these signs occur. Prescription drug abuse can include changes in mood or behavior as well as physical changes.

Mood or behavioral changes may include:

  • Becoming more withdrawn or isolated
  • Changes in eating or sleeping habits

Staff: 4.5/5Owner, Director, therapists, nurses, counselors, and support staff are all really great. I had no issues with anyone in particular. They are all there to help you however they can. I found that everyone advocated for my well being, were available when I needed them, and did their best to support me, check in on me, and make sure I was happy and comfortable.(why not 5/5? They have had a bunch of turnover and need to update their website with their newer staff members and qualifications. Additionally the Doctors they partner with were not as thorough as I would have wanted, and were kind of pushy with medications)Program: 4/5Small groups for the win! You get a lot of attention if you need it. This is a Holistic approach rehab. They do not focus on any 12 step programs. You have daily classes with different counselors, focusing on the science behind addiction, anger management, talk therapy, art therapy, equine therapy, nutrition, and much more. You have one-on-one sessions twice a week with a Licensed Therapist, and you have access to a gym daily, with a yoga instructor and trainer coming a few times a week. You also have a docent that comes once a week to do sound therapy, and you can learn techniques such as tapping. They have 2 doctors on staff you will have Zoom appointments with, and someone is always present to distribute morning, afternoon, and bedtime medication. You can also always grab whomever is on-call to talk through any issues or questions you have.(why not 5/5? Overall I found that there was too much down-time. I got bored and restless with that much free time and I craved more structure. Additionally I thought that the family Zoom sessions could have served as a stronger resource for loved ones)Location: 4/5Murrieta is a quiet, tranquil area, with mountain views, a lot of farmland, and very little public noise to distract you. When you do leave the house, you get to visit a small farm that is very close by to interact with horses and goats, etc. You also have an outing on Saturdays for a few hours that allows you as a group to get out of the house. The immediate area has all the basic stores and activities you would want, like target/walmart/grocery/7-11/etc as well as mini golf, bowling... You do need to decide as a group where you want to go because you have 1 chaperone and need to stay together at all times.(why not 5/5? There are 2 different houses located about 10 minutes away from each other. The Bass house advertised on the website is much nicer and larger than the Doreen house. During my time the clients staying at the Doreen house were shuttled over to the Bass house for our daily classes and sessions, not being able to utilize their own kitchen, rooms, and bathrooms during the day. I was also told by clients that the Doreen house was not as nice as the Bass House)Amenities: 4/5Pool - (I was there in the winter, so it was not heated and basically unusable, however, I did do some cold plunges just for the shock)Hot tub - available once a week on Friday eveningsYard - Large Grass Backyard and cement patio with tables and chairsGym - Available daily. TV for movies or music. Free weights, yoga mats, and a few outdated cardio machines that mostly worked.Kitchen - Large kitchen, multiple Fridges/Freezers, Huge pantry for preparing anything you want, ovens, microwave, toasters, dishwasher, outdoor gas grill, etc...Pool table, ping pong table, arts and crafts table, outdoor TV, Indoor TV, Computer, land-line house phone.Comfortable rooms and bathrooms with laundry access, and provided bedding and towels.(why not 5/5? I was disappointed that it wasn't clear that the pool and hot tub didn't have daily access as advertised, and that the gym was more outdated than described/pictured. They also could make some very inexpensive recreation investments like a basketball for their outdoor hoop, soccer ball, frisbees, croquet set, bocce, etc for their giant lawn to be used during the extensive downtime)

Ranch Creek Recovery is the best way to start your new healthy way of life. This program actually saved my life and my sanity. Their Holistic approach was amazing and I learned so much from my counselors and Dr. Dena. With only a limited number of participants in the house at one time, you are guaranteed the one on one time, as well as the group counseling they offer in a safe and comfortable setting. They make you aware that they truly care and are there to support you , listen to you, and most important to teach you. Teach you information about triggers, cognitive behavior and how to stay sober. They include therapy through others means such as Yoga, Meditation, working with Horses and even Physical Training. Ranch Creek makes sure when you leave you are good, Mind, Body and Soul. They have an excellent Intensive Outpatient Program (10) weeks that helps navigate your way back into life. A year ago (received my one year chip June 8, 2022) I was lost and a raging out of control alcoholic. I can proudly say today that I am not. I will always be an alcoholic with an addictive personality. But now I have tools, personal contacts and the faith in myself that I have never had before in my 9 years searching for sobriety. I often reflect back on my time at the Bass house. I am probably one of the few that actually stayed 60 days because I had so much to learn. My insurance did not cover all of the last days, but it was worth it to me, so I stayed. I am so grateful to so many of the staff, Jimmie, Christine, Jonathon, Dr. Dena and countless extended staff to name a few, because there were more. I would not be here to tell you it works, because without the treatment and the help I received, I alive today to tell my journey. If you are ready to face the truth, please give them a call. I promise if you are committed, you will never be the same as when you walked in. Thank you Ranch Creek Recovery.

I had long term sobriety and was under a lot of stress from my professional position. I began to use cannabis recreationally and soon became dependent. I sought recovery, because I could not stop using cannabis on my own. It was causing issues with my family and in my professional life. I signed up with Rancho Creek Recovery, through my insurance. I attended the pm IOP zoom sessions with Lorri. Her group sessions and the materials she provided, helped me to get off of cannabis. Lorri was a big help in giving me strategies to stay sober and to manage the cravings and ways to deal with my work stress. I would strongly recommend Rancho Creek Recovery's outpatient program and the pm IOP zoom sessions with Lorri. She was a great professional to work with.

I've had a few stints with rehab and none even skinned the surface of what I learned here. Located on a beautiful property in the foothills of Murrieta, with in house groups led by instructors that break it down so in depth. My perspective had a total shift and I can honestly say I owe my life and the promise of a new future to this facility and it's faculty. If you're willing to do the work this is the place to get into your core issues and help you recover from the lifestyle and vices that one is addicted to. I recommend this place to anyone who wants something different from life. DBT, CBT, recovery education, family therapy are just a few of the groups and The program director and Clinical director hand picked a team that is progressive, informed, patient, caring and passionate about what they do. I encourage anyone who's seeking treatment to look into this program I first hand watched others and had my life transformed.

Coming to Ranch Creek Recovery, I had been through three different inpatient chemical treatment facilities in CA. I was feeling lost and somewhat hopeless. The serene setting gave me peace and I began healing. The counselors were very inspiring and helped me grow in ways I haven’t experienced in years. I began to see the bigger picture that a life in sobriety can give you. Although I am somewhat scared to leave the comfort and security that Ranch Creek Recovery and staff has brought me, I am also excited to share my growth with my family and to start my new life. Thank you RCR!

Commonly Abused Substances

Commonly abused classes of prescription drugs include opioids (for pain) Vicodin, Oxycodone, Oxycontin, Percocet, Morphine, e.g., Kadian, Avinza, Codeine. Depressants for anxiety and sleep disorders include Xanax, Valium, Halcion, Librium, Ativan, and Klonopin.

All of these classes of drugs directly or indirectly cause a pleasurable increase in the amount of dopamine in the brain’s reward pathway. Seeking to repeat the experience or exceeding the dose can lead to opioid addiction, as can taking prescription drugs recreationally.

Prescription drugs taken as directed are usually safe and don’t require specialized prescription drug addiction rehab. When abused and taken in different amounts or for different purposes than as prescribed, however, they affect the brain in ways very similar to illicit drugs.

Prescription drugs can be addictive and put people at risk for other harmful health side effects, such as overdose. According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA), more than 115 people die every day from opioid addiction. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports that the number of overdose deaths from opioids has quadrupled since 1999. In 2016, there were more than 42,000 deaths from opioids—that’s an average of 115 per day.

Outpatient Prescription Drug Addiction Treatment

Ranch Creek Recovery offers outstanding outpatient prescription drug addiction treatment. Outpatient rehab is a type of addiction treatment that allows people to live at home while receiving treatment for their addiction. It can be through the form of an Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) or Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP). This can be an appealing option for people who don’t want to or can’t commit to inpatient treatment.

Outpatient rehab typically consists of weekly individual and group therapy sessions. During individual therapy, you’ll work with a therapist to address the underlying causes of your prescription drug misuse. In group therapy, you’ll share your experiences with other people who are struggling with substance abuse.

Outpatient rehab can be an effective treatment option for people who are motivated to stay sober. It’s important to note, however, that outpatient rehab requires a significant commitment as there are a lot more temptations outside. If you’re not ready to commit to substance abuse treatment, you may want to consider inpatient addiction treatment instead.
