Prescription Drug Abuse — Treatment and Rehabilitation
You or someone you love is abusing prescription medications. You are not alone—the non-medical use of prescription drugs has become an epidemic. Fortunately, the experts at Lakeside-Milam Recovery Centers are specially qualified to treat this addiction.
The illegal use of prescription opiates such as Oxycontin is most prevalent among young adults, 18-25. The drug is often crushed and snorted, hijacking the brain, akin to heroin use. The intense high is followed by an apathetic demeanor, which is often interpreted as depression.
The physicians and counselors at Lakeside-Milam have developed a highly successful program to treat this dangerous addiction. Hundreds of former users are now clean and sober—leading healthy, productive lives.
The problem is real, the time is now. Take the first step.
At Lakeside-Milam, our treatment philosophy is quite simple. We build individualized treatment programs to help patients get back on track—with minimal disruption to their busy lives. For many clients, the flexibility of outpatient care allows them to remain within a supportive family environment and to keep working. Outpatient Treatment Programs
Someone you know needs help. His—or her—drinking and drug using has gotten out of control, and is beginning to affect the rest of his life. He’s missing work, if he can still work at all. His family life is a shambles. He seems to be sick a lot. He just isn’t the person you’ve come to know and love. Inpatient Treatment Programs
Experience shows that about 20 percent of persons suffering from chemical dependency need inpatient treatment to get well. They are unable to achieve abstinence unless placed in a sheltered, secure, nurturing treatment setting. Lakeside-Milam Recovery Centers provides a comfortable, safe setting in which patients can come to terms with chemical dependency and learn a new way of living. Residential Inpatient Programs
