Prescription Drug Abuse
- the silent killer

Although society’s attention is often focused on the problem of illegal drug use, as far back as 2007 the United Nations was warning that the misuse of prescription drugs was about to overtake that of so called ‘street drugs’ like cocaine and marijuana.

Although most people take prescription drugs only for the reasons their doctor originally prescribed them, the US National Institute on Drug Abuse estimates that about 48 million people in the US (approximately 20% of the population) have used prescription drugs for non-medical reasons.

Prescription drug abuse confounds many of the stereotypes associated with drug addiction, although the effects can be just as deadly as those of illegal, or 'street' drugs. But often the signs can be harder to spot, which has led to many physicians describing it as a 'silent killer'.

Features of Prescription Drug Abuse

For most people, the first decision to take prescription drugs is voluntary. But over time, changes in the brain caused by repeated drug abuse affect a person's self-control and ability to make sound decisions. While this is going on, the person continues to have intense impulses to take more drugs.

The truth is, like any addiction, addiction to prescription drugs is no respecter of status, age, sex or wealth. Not only that, prescription drug addiction can creep up on people, without them realising just what a dangerous path they are. Yet what makes the condition even worse is that – like any addiction – there is a stigma associated with it, which prevents many sufferers from seeking help due to fears about what other people will think of them.

This is particularly true for high profile or high achieving individuals, which is where the Phoenix Individual Retreat can help. We offer complete privacy and anonymity, as well as a place of sanctuary and safety where clients can receive treatment in luxurious surroundings, well away from the public eye. So if you, or someone you know, may have a problem with prescription drugs they need not suffer in silence.

Treatment for Prescription Drug Abuse

Phoenix Individual Retreat was born from a single-minded vision: to provide clients with the most luxurious, confidential and effective treatment for addiction and other disorders. We offer a safe space, a sanctuary away from the pressures and stresses of everyday life in which clients can address their problems and create a pathway to a healthier and more fulfilled life. In other words, the chance to re-balance, re-focus and renew.

As part of the admissions process, each client receives a personalised Phoenix Pathway – a highly detailed plan setting out all aspects of their medical, therapeutic and psychological treatment – which is reviewed regularly throughout their stay at Phoenix Individual Retreat.

For many clients, this plan will cover a range of issues or disorders to ensure that they receive a truly holistic solution to their problems. For example, research has shown that gambling addicts are 4 times more likely than the average person to suffer with an alcohol addiction problem and it is important any such co-dependencies are identified and treated simultaneously.

At the end of their stay, clients will receive a detailed Aftercare Plan which ensures they remain in regular contact with the Phoenix team and are able to maintain and strengthen their recovery as they re-engage with their day to day lives.

  Client Stories
My shameful secret I remember my overwhelming feeling being one of shame. How had I allowed myself to get into this situation? This was quickly followed by anger at myself and then a sense of blind fear and panic at what would happen if this got out? My reputation would be trashed. I’d thought I’d managed to cover my tracks but my behaviour was becoming increasingly erratic.
A partner's story Finding out the true extent of my husband’s problem with prescription painkillers, when he broke down in tears and confessed everything, was one of the worst days of my life. It felt like a massive kick to the stomach and, crazily, I remember thinking “why can’t he have just had an affair, that would be easier to deal with!”
