virtues behavioral health Drug Addiction Treatment Center los angelesThe public perception of drug addiction can look very different from its reality. Many individuals struggle privately with dependence on prescription medications that might have been prescribed to treat pain, anxiety, insomnia, or other medical conditions. While effective at treating these issues, many medications are also highly addictive. Opioid pain relievers, benzodiazepines, and stimulants used to treat ADHD can all have a high potential for abuse.

It’s possible to develop an addiction without realizing it. If you’ve found that your drug use is causing physical, psychological, relational, or financial issues, reach out for help today. Virtues Behavioral Health offers a substance abuse treatment program in Los Angeles that can help you get back to the life you want.

Commonly Abused Prescription Drugs

Those who are using illicit drugs such as meth, cocaine, or heroin are encouraged to reach out to our team right away. Starting your journey to recovery as early as possible can help you make lasting changes in your life.

Prescription medications that have a high potential for abuse include:

  • Vicodin
  • OxyContin
  • Percocet
  • Morphine
  • Codeine
  • Fentanyl
  • Xanax
  • Valium
  • Adderall
  • Ritalin

This is not an exhaustive list, and many individuals struggle with an addiction to more than one substance. Our addiction treatment programs can help you heal and grow.

The Brain and Addiction

How does addiction develop? Addictive substances act on the pleasure and reward centers of the brain. Opioids, for example, cause the brain to release a rush of dopamine. Upon first use, your brain stores away the information that these substances lead to good feelings. With continued use, you’ll start to develop a tolerance to the substance, which means you need more of it to feel the same effects. Over time, your brain and body will develop a dependence, relying on the substance to get through the day.

This is why overcoming addiction is difficult to do on your own. Addiction is a chronic disease, not a choice or a matter of willpower. Strong cravings, withdrawal symptoms, and even feelings of anxiety and depression can occur once you stop using the substance. In our treatment center, we provide support and encouragement to help our clients maintain their sobriety. Developing healthy coping skills can help you avoid relapse in the future.
