Idaho Drug Detox Centers

Prescription medications can transform the lives of medical patients and those suffering from chronic pain, but their addictive properties can make them dangerous. Abuse of prescription medications is growing across the United States, with use of opioids (such as oxycodone or codeine), stimulants (e.g., Adderall or Ritalin), and central nervous system depressants (e.g., benzodiazepines, barbiturates, or sleep aids such as Ambien) the primary culprits. Idaho has a particularly high prescription drug abuse problem with 11.8 out of 100,000 residents dying from drug overdose. This overdose rate has more than doubled since 1999.

Steps Taken By Idaho Legislatures to Curb Prescription Drug Abuse

Idaho has several laws in place to curb the abuse of prescription medications. For example, the state’s “doctor shopping” law prohibits residents from lying to a medical professional about prescription drug use or visiting multiple doctors to get the same prescription. Furthermore, a “lock in” program requires individuals covered under Medicaid who are suspected of prescription drug abuse to use a single physician prescriber and pharmacy. These efforts aim to reduce the likelihood that Idaho residents can obtain prescription medications from legal sources, but street sales of prescription drugs continue to skyrocket.

Importance of Supervised Drug Detox

Many people suffering from prescription drug addiction feel ashamed and isolated. They often believe that quitting “cold turkey” is the best approach to overcoming addiction. Although the “cold turkey” method works for some people, rates of relapse are considerably higher among those who attempt to quit prescription drugs without medical or psychological help. Entering a drug detox center results in significantly better outcomes for prescription drug users. The medical attention allows you to deal with unpleasant withdrawal symptoms while treatment professionals provide additional assistance with your ability to overcome cravings.
