Brooklyn Prescription Drug Rehab 

Whether it be pain medicine, benzodiazepines, or stimulants, our Brooklyn prescription drug rehab can help you overcome addiction. Although they are prescribed to treat legitimate medical conditions, controlled medicines are highly addictive and are easily abused. And most times, the dependent person is unaware. Some of the more common benzodiazepines include Ativan, Klonopin, Valium and Xanax. Because these drugs are prescribed by a physician, there is a fallacy about their use and safety. At the same time, prescription pain medicine like Percocet, tramadol, or hydrocodone have become gateways to street drugs like heroin and fentanyl. Centrally located in Brookyln, our Bay Ridge prescription drug rehab is here to help with medication assisted treatment and behavioral health therapy programs. Don't put off getting help, Call us at 718.833.3320 to learn more about prescription drug rehab in Bay Ridge.

Prescription Drug Addiction Can Happen to Anyone

It can start in the slightest way: a knee surgery or challenging pain that won’t go away. Even when taken as prescribed, users may find themselves in abuse or addiction before you know it. However, because these drugs are intended to relieve pain, anxiety, and insomnia, it is common for users to use more than prescribed or do for longer periods of time than prescribed. This significantly increases the probability of addiction. Regrettably, the problem is usually not realized until it becomes a problem in your life.
