What is a Prescription Drug Detox?
Detoxing from prescription drugs can be very difficult, even dangerous, on your own. At Renewal Health Group, our prescription drug detox is a monitored process, whereby all drugs are weaned from your system. When the effects of drugs wear off, it can cause withdrawal symptoms and some discomfort.
We understand this can be scary, but with the help of our medical professionals, eliminating the chemicals from your body doesn’t have to be uncomfortable. Our specialists are trained to keep you safe while detoxing from prescription drugs, and will provide treatment as necessary to help with symptoms.

Dangers of Prescription Drug Addiction
When taken for the wrong reasons, prescription drug abuse leads to a variety of problems. Ranging from mild to severe, symptoms include: confusion, mood changes, fatigue, heart problems, change in blood pressure, paranoia, and even comatose and death.
Some drugs and drug interactions can also cause organ damage, ulcers, difficulty breathing and digestive problems. Once an individual builds a tolerance to prescription drugs, there is an increased risk of dependency, addiction and overdose. When stopping prescription drugs, the user also risks dangerous withdrawal symptoms.
Withdrawal symptoms can include:
- Nausea and vomiting
- Hallucinations and delirium
- Physical pain
A physical dependence can begin quickly and abruptly. When this happens, the body tricks itself into thinking it needs the drug to function. Perhaps at first you notice a headache when you aren’t using drugs, or have difficulty concentrating. A physical dependence commonly interrupts daily routines.
In some scenarios, individuals who abuse prescription drugs may not experience physical symptoms. Instead, they are faced with psychological side-effects. These include: intense cravings, loss of interest in everyday activities, anxiety, and feelings as if they can’t live without the drug.
If you’re ready to quit using prescription drugs, our detox treatment center in Southern California is ready to help.
