More than half of Americans take a prescription drug each month. Prescription drugs save lives as they are used to treat a variety of physical and mental health conditions. However, many prescription drugs also carry a potential for abuse and addiction.
Prescription drug abuse and addiction are widespread throughout the United States. The National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) reports that 16.1 million people ages 12 and older abused prescription medication in 2020.
Many people who misuse prescription drugs are under the impression that these drugs are safe because they are prescribed by a doctor. The truth is medications are only safe when they are taken as prescribed. If you begin taking a higher dose, taking your next dose too early, or crushing and snorting your pills, you are on your way to developing a substance use disorder.
An estimated 2 million people (or 11.9% of people who misuse prescription drugs) are addicted to the prescription drugs they are abusing. If you or someone you love is addicted to prescription drugs, you may require substance abuse treatment.
Arise Treatment Center offers a comprehensive prescription drug rehab program in Vista, California. Our addiction treatment program is complete with private medical detox, individualized treatment plans, and supportive aftercare.

At Arise Treatment Center, our addiction treatment is designed so that you can move through various levels of care as you progress through your treatment regimen. Most patients begin with inpatient residential treatment.
Our residential facility provides a safe, supportive and peaceful environment with comfortable accommodations where you can focus and begin healing from prescription drug addiction. During your stay, you will live in private or semi-private rooms among other like-minded individuals as you participate in therapy, engage in healthy behaviors, and begin cultivating a sober mindset.
Attending treatment in a residential facility can help you focus solely on your recovery because you aren’t distracted by the outside world. It can help you prevent relapse while you try to uncover the underlying causes of your substance abuse.
After completing inpatient rehab, we recommend transitioning into our outpatient prescription drug rehab program where you can obtain support as you adjust to living sober. Outpatient rehab can help you navigate early sobriety and practice relapse prevention skills under expert guidance. Our outpatient opioid treatment program uses evidence-based treatments and medication-assisted therapy to deliver highly-focused care so you can continue your recovery.
Outpatient rehab can also offer support to those who are unable to attend a residential program. Whether you have family, work, or school that is stopping you from seeking inpatient rehab, outpatient rehab is flexible enough to work with your schedule while providing you with the help you need.
Arise Treatment Center is committed to helping you find practical solutions for prescription drug addiction. Through a combination of evidence-based treatments, medical detox, and multiple levels of care, we’re able to help people discover life outside of their addiction.
