Over the past few decades, the popularity of prescription drug abuse increased. Although medical breakthroughs can create incredible and highly effective new medicines, some of these drugs are highly addictive. The rise of the pharmaceutical industry is helpful to many suffering patients, but it gives rise to addictions. Luckily, Ardu Recovery Center offers a high-quality prescription drug addiction treatment program to help individuals from all circumstances.
Prescription drugs can vary in their addictiveness and mechanisms, but that doesn’t diminish the serious side effects they can cause along with potentially deadly addiction. If you receive a drug prescription from a doctor, you should always take it exactly as directed and properly dispose of the drug when you no longer need it. Not doing so can lead to addiction.
Many who abuse prescription drugs operate under the belief that these drugs are safer, not deadly, and not addictive. This is patently untrue for a large variety of prescription drugs. Many prescription drugs can be highly addictive and lead to an overdose death.
Another serious risk of prescription drug abuse is its potential to lead to more drug use. Often, those who develop addictions to prescription painkillers end up switching to heroin. It offers a similar, yet stronger, high despite being cheaper than prescription pills. The same can happen to those taking prescription stimulants, which can lead to illicit drugs like meth or cocaine.
This “graduation” to harder drugs presents an increasing risk to those abusing them. By entering Ardu Recovery Center’s prescription drug addiction treatment program, you can get the help you need now before your addiction pulls you deeper.

Our goal is to stop the cycle of prescription drug abuse before it escalates. Prescription drugs are addictive and deadly, but can often lead to even more dangerous substances.
