Pharmaceutical drugs have helped many people manage medical conditions and mental health issues. Receiving a prescription has made a difference in the lives of a lot of patients.
As helpful as medication can be, some prescription drugs carry a high risk of addiction. A drug that you rely on to manage a medical condition can start to cause more harm than good.
Prescription drugs are commonly used purely for recreational purposes as well. When a person uses prescription drugs in a way that was not ordered by a doctor, they can suffer from severe side effects and struggle with addiction.
At The Good Life Treatment Center, our team includes medical professionals who can help you with treatment, therapists who can guide you through recovery, and people who are living in long-term recovery who understand your situation.

A prescription drug, also known as a prescription medication, is a pharmaceutical drug that is regulated by law and requires a medical prescription from a licensed healthcare provider, such as a doctor, nurse practitioner, or dentist, to be dispensed to a patient. This means that you cannot obtain prescription drugs without a prescription from a qualified healthcare professional. The reason for this regulation is to ensure that these drugs are used safely and appropriately under the supervision of a healthcare provider, as they may carry significant risks or have the potential for misuse.
Any prescription drug can potentially be abused. Painkillers, stimulants, and drugs used to treat anxiety and depression are some of the most commonly abused prescription drugs. A patient may start using more of a drug they have been prescribed, increasing tolerance, and begin experiencing harmful side effects. Or, a person may begin using prescription drugs recreationally and experience the effects of using a drug they were not prescribed.
