Due to the physical dependence created by abusing prescription medication, addiction treatment begins in a residential treatment facility. The initial phase of treatment is detox. It is here, under medical supervision, that the symptoms associated with withdrawal from prescription medication are managed, reduced and some times eliminated. The average length of time spent in detox is approximately seven days. During this time, the person will be monitored medically and any psychiatric or psychological issues will be assessed.
After the person is medically stable, they are generally referred to residential treatment to complete the treatment plan designed in detox. By the time most people enter treatment for prescription medication addiction, they have created quite a bit of emotional damage to themselves and loved ones. It takes time to recover from shame, grief, guilt, and rebuild a level of trust amongst the family. Recovery in a supportive therapeutic environment eliminates many of the outside distractions and allows a person to focus on issues relating to their recovery. The length of stay is approximately twenty days and may be followed by outpatient therapy.
Recent studies have been reported in which there is talk of a heroin vaccine ready for pre-testing for heroin addiction. This may interest those whose friends or family are addicted by offering hope for them. Tests have been conducted on rats and so far have provided positive results.
