The abuse of prescription medication is becoming a more widespread problem today. DEA statistics show that prescription drug abuse is rising at a rate 400% greater than marijuana use.
Years of research have shown that addiction to any drug, prescribed or illicit, is a brain disease like other chronic diseases and can be treated effectively. La Hacienda has been treating prescription drug addiction successfully for over 30 years. We understand the challenges that each new patient brings to treatment, and we are prepared to meet each one of them. No single type of treatment is appropriate for all addicted individuals. Treatment must take into account the type of drug used and the needs of the individual. Successful treatment may incorporate several components including detoxification and individual, group and family counseling. While our patients are in treatment we help them improve their personal relationships and their ability to function at work and in the community.
