Prescription Drug Addiction Treatmant in Los Angeles

Prescription drug addictions are one of the most unfortunate forms of addiction in Los Angeles. Unfortunately, it’s also much more common and way easier than you might think.

Prescription drugs are prescribed to you by a medical professional to help you physically, mentally, or emotionally. However, prescription drugs are as addictive as illegal ones, and if you take them for long enough or take too many at once, it’s possible to get addicted to them. What was supposed to help you can quickly derail your life.

Not all prescription drugs are as addictive as others. Here are a few of the most commonly prescribed drugs that are easiest to get addicted to.

  • Tranquilizers such as Klonopan and Ativan
  • Opioids such as Vicodin and OxyContin
  • Stimulants such as Adderall and Concerta
  • Depressants such as Valium and Xanax
