Prescription Drug Addiction Rehab

Prescription drug addiction rehab can be defined as any programs you enroll in to help you overcome your addiction. Rehab, which is short for rehabilitation, can be defined as the process of regaining normal mental and physical health through attending different treatments or programs. Rehab can also be defined as a center that helps you regain this normal health.

From these definitions, you can assume that by going through prescription drug addiction rehab you will, in fact, be learning how to live your life (again) without prescription drugs. The reason we started this discussion with almost technical definitions is it is essential that you understand what prescription drug addiction rehab is and why you are going through this rehab. If you understand these two things, there is less of an intimidation factor when it comes to actually going through rehab.

Overlooking the beautiful Zuma Beach in Malibu, California you will find a luxury treatment center offering prescription drug addiction rehab. This is our treatment center, Cliffside Malibu. We define addiction rehab a little differently then what you read above, because we add in comfort and security. At Cliffside Malibu, rehab is defined as regaining a normal mental and physical health in the most comfortable way possible.  Even if you are looking for a loved one, we have intervention specialists available to help you through the process. If this is the type of rehab you would like to experience, call Cliffside Malibu at (424) 320-3061.


There would not be any point in defining prescription drug addiction rehab if you did not know if you needed it. Hence, we are answering your question “do I need prescription drug addiction rehab?”. Of course, anything we say should not take the place of the opinion of a certified doctor within or outside of prescription drug addiction rehab. With that said, we can give you a few characteristics of prescription drug addiction so that you can know if you need to be in rehab or not. A prescription drug addiction is sometimes more difficult to recognize then other addictions, because you probably needed the drug in the beginning. However, you may have noticed that you were refilling your prescription early every month. This is one of the signs of addiction, because you are either misusing the drug or you are growing a tolerance to it and needed more to feel its affects. Another sign of a person with substance use disorderion is that you are using your prescription even when you do not physically need it.

One other sign that will tell you that you need prescription drug addiction rehab is that you need stronger doses of your medication, because the original dose just isn’t cutting it anymore. If any of these characteristics describe your relationship with prescription medications, call Cliffside Malibu at (424) 320-3061 so that we can get you enrolled in prescription drug addiction rehab.

You understand now what prescription drug addiction rehab is and you know how to find out if you need it, now you may be asking something else. You might be asking just “why is prescription drug addiction rehab so important.” You might think that overcoming your drug addiction is as simple as not taking the drug anymore. You might think that you can stop using your medications any time you want. This is simply not true. It is very rare that anyone facing any type of addiction has the know-how and strength it takes to overcome their addiction on their own. Prescription drug addiction rehab is important because it helps you through detox, which can be very uncomfortable, and then teaches you how to overcome your mental/emotional addiction to your medication.

Detoxing or physically withdrawing from your prescription drug without medical, mental, and emotional support can prove to be nearly impossible, especially when you can end your discomfort with a new prescription. Moreover, you may not have realized that you were using your prescription drugs when you thought you needed them and not when you really needed them. This means that you need prescription drug addiction rehab to show you how to function normally once again. If you want to learn more about the importance of prescription drug addiction rehab, call Cliffside Malibu at (424) 320-3061.

No one person or treatment center can tell you how prescription drug addiction rehab will help you learn to function again, at least not without first sitting down with you and assessing your unique situation and addiction. At Cliffside Malibu, we will put you through an intense medical and mental assessment to see exactly what you need to function without your drugs. You need to have an individual treatment plan created around your addiction in order to regain normal mental and physical health. At Cliffside Malibu, your treatment plan can consist of holistic treatments such as yoga, meditation in a meditation garden if you like, massage therapy, working with a nutritionist and a gourmet chef. You will be offered therapeutic approaches such as psychodynamic approaches, art therapy, dual diagnosis, equine therapy, insight oriented, and journaling group. Essentially, any effective prescription drug addiction rehab will offer you exactly what you need to learn how to function without your drugs and reach lasting sobriety.


One thing you will notice is that even the most effective prescription drug rehab centers cannot help you unless you allow them to. You must help yourself in prescription drug rehab. There is no other choice but for you to help yourself. Rehab centers are only capable of offering you the tools and support that you need to reach sobriety. They are only capable of removing you from your current situation and giving you the structure that you need to overcome your mental and physical addictions. However, in the end, it is still a personal choice as to whether or not these offers of help are actually helpful. It is still a personal choice as to whether or not sobriety is even an option. You have to be willing to offer yourself completely to your recovery process and, no matter how comfortable it is, stick with this process until you have overcome your prescription drug addiction.
