SouthCoast Recovery Announces the Addition of a Prescription Drug Addiction Treatment Program

Austin, Texas (PressExposure) May 11, 2009 -- SouthCoast Recovery recognizes the need for specialized drug and alcohol treatment programs and especially for a Prescription Drug Treatment program in response to the alarming number of people abusing prescription drugs nowadays; sadly, the largest majority of the people that are becoming addicted to prescription drugs are teens and nearly half of them have gotten the drugs for free from a relative or a friend. According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse’s (NIDA) research report, Prescription Drugs: Abuse and Addiction, as of 2005 more teens had been offered prescription drugs than illicit drugs and these numbers continue doubling everyday. As a result of the increased access to prescription drugs to every facet of our communities, people of all ages and from all walks of life are finding themselves addicted to Opiods, Central Nervous System Depressants, as well as, Stimulants and over the past few years, SouthCoast Recovery has been treating prescription drug addiction more then ever before. This past year alone, over 40 % of the clients that come to SCR for treatment have been addicted to prescription drugs like, Oxycontin®, Valium®, or Adderall®; sadly, many of these clients were under the age of 25.

Drug and alcohol dependency is symptomatic of underlying issues that should be addressed on an individual basis and at our state-of-the-art facilities, the finest clinical and medical physicians work together with skilled practitioners in advanced Eastern holistic therapies, to provide the most comprehensive physical, emotional and spiritual renewal of each person.

We offer seven residential facilities, a clinical therapist, marriage & family therapist, certified drug & alcohol counselors, a medical physician, a licensed acupuncturist with a Masters in Oriental Medicine, a licensed massage therapist, and sessions in primordial sound meditation, as well as, group support in the local 12-step community.

At SouthCoast Recovery, we believe that recovery from addiction is a transformation in all areas of life. Prescription Drug Addiction Treatment is now available during 30, 60 and 90-day residential treatment.
