Top Rated Prescription Drug Rehab in San Fernando Valley

Addiction to prescription medications can happen to anybody, even people who are using their medications as prescribed. Some medications, like opioid painkillers and benzodiazepine drugs, are highly addictive and habit forming, and may require a professional detox and rehab to quit safely.

If you live in the San Fernando Valley and are experiencing symptoms of prescription drug addiction, please contact Sylvan Detox. We are the top-rated drug rehab center in your area, offering non-judgmental, professional, and effective inpatient detox and drug rehab services. Our treatment facility is Joint Commission accredited, and our staff is educated, licensed, and experienced in treating substance use disorders. We use trauma-informed methods in everything we do, and our team is dedicated to your comfort and wellness at every step of your treatment program.

Once you complete your time with us in inpatient (residential) rehab, we can help connect you to further outpatient treatment options like partial hospitalization programs, intensive outpatient programs, 12-step programs, sober living homes, and more. We have a vast network of treatment facilities that can help you remain in recovery long-term, so you will never be alone in your newfound sobriety.

What Is RX Rehab Like?

Our prescription drug rehab program at Sylvan Detox will usually begin with a medical detox program. This is an inpatient treatment plan, in which you move into our safe, sober, and comfortable treatment center full-time, so you can have professional medical care 24 hours a day. We also provide prescription medications as needed to help you deal with drug cravings, pain, restlessness, and other uncomfortable withdrawal symptoms, and to keep you safe from serious side effects that can occur when quitting certain drugs, like seizures and mental health issues.

In our luxury rehab center, you will also have the option to participate in alternative treatments, like massage therapy, sound therapy, yoga, and others, and our therapists will be there to work with you, with daily visits from a therapist to help you deal with difficult thoughts and emotions as your body removes the toxins from your system and you begin the healing process.

After you begin to feel better and you are medically stable enough to move on, your rehab program will begin. At Sylvan, all treatments are inpatient, so you will remain within the walls of our treatment center for a predetermined amount of time, usually 30 to 90 days. Your days will be structured and busy with therapy, treatments, and healthy, sober recreational activities.

You will stay in a comfortable room when you are in rehab at Sylvan. Your comfort, safety, and security are important to us because we know that detox and the first few months of recovery can be uncomfortable and vulnerable times for most people. We will do all we can to ensure you feel welcome, safe, and listened to.

Your bed will have a luxury mattress and a plush comforter, and you will have the option to enjoy our fully-stocked 24-hour snack bar, foosball, cornhole, game consoles, and common indoor and outdoor lounge areas in your downtime. Three healthy meals a day are cooked by an on-site private chef, ensuring all your dietary needs are met. Join us for yoga and meditation classes to relieve stress and stretch out your body to improve comfort, or simply kick back and enjoy some TV time after a full day of therapy. We have housekeeping services to allow you more time to rest, and we do weekly store runs, ensuring you have everything you need during your stay with us.

We want to take the stress off your plate whenever we can so you can relax and truly take in your treatments and therapies, so we also allow cell phone use at a certain time of the day after a strict blackout period. This way you can keep in touch with loved ones, checking in on them and keeping them updated on your progress.

How Long Does RX Rehab San Fernando Valley last?

Everybody has their timeline when it comes to rehab, and at Sylvan Detox, we customize every person’s treatment program to best suit their unique needs, recovery goals, and health. Detox timelines depend on what drug(s) you are detoxing from, as well as how long you have been abusing your prescriptions and whether you were mixing them with other drugs or alcohol. Some people have serious health issues that need to be addressed by a doctor before they can leave detox as well, and others may require a long-term medication-assisted treatment (MAT) plan to help them taper off of their drug use safely, which can take weeks or even months.

The minimum amount of time that is usually recommended for inpatient rehab at Sylvan Detox is 30 days. This is called “short-term” rehab and will give people who have a milder addiction the structure, care, and therapy they need to be able to learn healthier habits, overcome their physical dependence on the substance(s), and gain long-term recovery skills they will need to move forward in life as a sober individual.

A longer stay in inpatient rehab is often required for people who have addictions to prescription drugs, especially opioids and benzodiazepines, as these drugs create a strong physical dependence, have intense withdrawal symptoms that can come back for weeks or months after quitting, and often cause further physical and/or mental health issues that require dual diagnosis treatments, therapies, and medication management. A 60-day or 90-day stay may be recommended in this case.

The longer you stay in inpatient rehab, the better your chances of developing long-lasting healthy routines and habits, learning relapse prevention skills, healing underlying mental health issues, strengthening your body, and discovering the roots of your addiction. Rehab will help you focus and heal your physical, emotional, mental, social, and spiritual health as you work on stress reduction techniques, life skills, and taking back control over your own life.

Top Abused Prescription Drugs

The prescription drugs that are most often abused are:

  • Opioid drugs and prescription painkillers including morphine, methadone, oxycodone, fentanyl, and Percocet
  • Stimulant drugs like amphetamines that are often found in medications including Dexedrine, Adderall, and Ritalin
  • Barbiturates like phenobarbital and secobarbital
  • Benzodiazepines like Xanax, Ativan, and Valium

Even though these medications are prescribed by a doctor, if they are abused, or used for longer than a few weeks, they can cause changes within the brain that can lead to physical dependence, ultimately creating an addiction over time. Prescription drug rehab with or without a medication-assisted tapering schedule is a safe and effective way to stop using these medications without suffering from dangerous side effects while healing the underlying issues that caused the addiction in the first place.

Methadone Detox in San Fernando Valley

Methadone is a type of medication that can be provided in measured-out prescription doses to help people who are addicted to opioid drugs taper off their use. It works by binding to the same opioid receptors in the body that opioid drugs fit into. Under a doctor’s care, a strict schedule of this medication is taken, helping take away the most severe drug cravings, pain, and distressing withdrawal symptoms that come with quitting opioids. Because methadone can also be an addictive substance if abused, it is important to only use methadone as directed by your doctor, in a medication-assisted treatment (MAT) program.

At Sylvan Detox, our MAT program combines prescription medications like methadone, alongside a comprehensive rehab program with therapy, medical care, and holistic stress-reduction methods, giving our patients the best possible chance of long-term recovery.
