Prescription Drug Detox

The Coleman Institute offers Prescription Drug Detox options in San Francisco, CA

The most addictive prescription drugs contain opioids such as Vicodin® and OxyContin®. Typically, the abuse of a prescription drug begins by developing a tolerance, meaning you need higher and higher doses of your prescription to feel the same effect you felt at lower doses. Then your brain, which has become used to the prescription drug, becomes dependent upon the drug.

This dependence begins because many prescription drugs are chemically similar to endorphins in that they relieve pain. They bind onto the opioid receptors in the brain that are normally occupied by naturally made endorphins. But prescription drugs are much stronger than endorphins so they trigger a stronger reaction. Your brain begins to crave the strength and response of a prescription drug, resulting in dependence.

If you are suffering from a dependency on your prescription drug, the Coleman Institute in San Francisco (Burlingame), CA can help.
