Drug Abuse In College — Pharmaceutical Rehab

Drug abuse increasing in college is not surprising. But what if the drugs were prescription pills? Addiction to pharmaceuticals is epidemic but being kept under American & Canadian’s radar. Parents and kids are seeing the effects of un-acknowledged pharma mis-use and abuse: dropping out and serious drug addiction.

Many college drug users are finding some long-term problems associated with trying to withdraw from pharmaceuticals. Their original difficulties that started them into pharma use seem trivial after they get hooked.

Now the real problem is the bizarre drug effects

  • Some pharma effects disable people from rational decisions and responsible action
  • Inability to focus and complete tasks resulting in poor grades
  • Dishonesty
  • Drug induced Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Instability

Those are some of the effects of pharma and other drugs

How To End College Drug Abuse With Rehab

Realize that drug abuse in college, especially pharmaceutical dependency, indicates underlying problems. Being in college obviously isn’t resolving those problems. College environment may even be the worst place for your loved one to be if they are in the middle of a drug issue.

If you need help understanding how to get your loved one to reach for help, I strongly advise that you learn about Intervention from a professional.

Pharmaceutical Drug Abuse In College – Hiding Behind Prescriptions

A college dorm hallway reeking with the smell of weed paints a clearer picture of drug abuse. Binge drinking at a college party is clearly drug abuse. But what if the drug came in a prescription bottle or was a pill instead? Pharma abuse is less suspicious to some, but far more addictive.

The facts indicate false labeling of Canada’s brightest minds and white coated drug pushing.

A student who is stressed out over a test in 3 hours that she isn’t prepared for is experiencing an expected reaction, although one that could have been avoided with proper planning.

Rehab First Step To Recovery — Changing Environment

Drug rehabs that get the best success are far away from the everyday places that people use drugs in. Withdrawal symptoms from drugs will often trigger further drug use. Some medical opiods like Oxycontin will have long-term triggers – long after the initial detoxification.

Taking people out of the college environment is the first step to ending drug abuse. A safe secure environment that is loving will greatly assist a patient to recover. Recovery also involves other addicts to relate to. People who haven’t ever used are great examples of right living, but can’t relate well to an addict.

College campuses are filled with pharma. College is not the place to get clean, but once clean, it can be a great place to move forward in life.

Rehab Second Step – A Clean House; Not Trading One Addiction For Another

Providing a truly drug-free environment is more difficult today than in the past. Addiction doctors are fast to prescribe methadone and other addictive drugs like paxil, ativan, anti-depressants, etc. Does this end pharmaceutical dependence? No.

Read and watch a video explaining fundamentals to End Addiction.

Drug-free rehabs make a perfect secure setting to end drug abuse. Everyone is one board with being clean. A drug-free environment is a strong base for recovery because a drug abuser KNOWS that pharmaceuticals are easier to abuse than common street drugs.

Pharmaceuticals in rehab aren’t helpful to ending drug abuse. They may be needed for medical withdrawal for a couple of days, but detox isn’t rehab is it?

Rehab Third Step – Asking For Help

A big barrier to overcome is asking for help from professionals who get results. Remember, you are investing your trust and your loved ones’ well being in the hands of a center you may have never visited before. Learning from a professional and a recovered addict who has been through the best rehabs is an excellent place to start.

Getting good advice begins with getting educated yourself on the different types of rehab programs available.

Learn about different types of alcohol and drug rehab programs before trying to make a decision about what’s best for your loved one.
