We Will Guide You to Serenity
Addiction to prescription pills is very common, and may be even more of an issue than most people realize. For some, prescription drug use begins as a way to treat medical conditions. However, many prescription drugs are addictive, and can lead to a pattern of use that does more harm than good.
It can be difficult to identify when prescription drug use becomes an issue if you initially had a legitimate need for the medication, but recognizing addiction is the first step to recovering from addiction. You’ve taken the first step, and we can guide you through the rest of your recovery journey.

Commonly Abused Prescription Drugs
Any type of prescription drug can be abused. When a person is using a prescription drug in a way that has not been ordered by a doctor, is unable to quit using a drug, or is experiencing harmful side effects caused by a drug, treatment may be necessary.
Some of the most commonly abused types of prescription drugs include those used to treat mental health conditions or manage pain. These types of drugs are not only highly addictive, but also often produce feelings of relaxation that make them attractive to recreational users. The recreational use of prescription pills without a doctor’s orders is always dangerous and can lead to addiction.
Types of prescription pill addictions that we can assist you with include:
Anxiety and depression medication
Stimulants, such as ADHD medication
Signs of Prescription Drug Abuse
Identifying the signs of prescription drug abuse in yourself or a loved one can be difficult. After all, it is likely that you, your friend, or your family member began using pills at the direction of a doctor. It may not be easy to see when a legitimate use of prescription drugs becomes a problem.
Prescription drug abuse may be exhibited through signs such as:
- Financial difficulties
- Avoiding obligations
- Isolating from friends and family
- Using other types of drugs
- Using prescription pills without a prescription
- Experiencing harmful side effects due to drug use
- Using pills in a way that contradicts a doctor’s orders
Which Prescription Drug Addiction Treatment Program is Right for Me?
There are many different ways to treat addiction. Some people benefit from a medical component to their treatment, while others thrive with the help of therapy, sober living environments, and other non-medical methods of treatment.
At Chattanooga Recovery Center, we offer both medical and non-medical treatment programs, as well as programs that offer both elements. Our intensive outpatient program provides a stable, yet relaxed environment that allows people to complete treatment on their own time. Similarly, our night outpatient treatment is available for people who work full time during the day. For people who need medical treatment incorporated into their recovery, we offer a partial hospitalization program as well as medication assisted treatment.
