Prescription Drug Abuse Therapy

Prescription drugs are medications prescribed by a medical doctor to alleviate unwanted symptoms. In recent years, prescription drugs have become more widely prescribed and abused. In addition, prescription drug abuse can include taking more medication(s) than prescribed, taking multiple different medication(s), or mixing prescription drugs with other substances, which can increase the effects of the medication. The most common prescription drugs abused are the following:

  • Opioids which are used to treat and alleviate pain
  • Stimulants which are often prescribed to treat attention and hyperactivity difficulties
  • Depressants which are used to treat anxiety and sleep problems
