Prescription Drug Addiction Treatment

Addiction to prescription drugs – the medicines given to you by a doctor – can happen to anyone.
It takes a lot of courage to admit that you need help for an addiction to prescription drugs, but the first step is often the hardest. When you reach out for support, know that help is here.

Signs of Prescription Drug Addiction

Are you struggling with:

  • Choosing using your prescriptions drugs over activities that don’t involve using, even if it means missing important moments with your family and friends?
  • Your changing behaviour, particularly at home, at work or around your kids?
  • Telling anyone the truth about how much you are misusing your prescription drugs, and hiding the behaviour?
  • Withdrawal symptoms related to your particular type of prescription drug, such as feeling high, drowsy or confused on opioids, or having insomnia, anxiety and paranoia from stimulants?

These are commons signs you may need help for a prescription drug addiction. If you need help or someone to talk to about how to quit, call us today. Your road to recovery starts here.

Prescription drug addiction can happen when a medicine prescribed by a doctor is used in a way not intended by the prescribing doctor. Prescription drug abuse, addiction or problematic use can mean everything from taking a friend’s prescribed painkiller for your own headache to snorting or injecting ground-up prescriptions pills to get high.

Anyone, at any age, can become addicted to prescription drugs such as opioid painkillers, anti-anxiety medicines, stimulants and sedatives. If you think you have, or a loved one has, a problem with prescription drug use, we can help.

We’ve helped nearly 50,000 people recover from substance addictions and we can help you too.

We are proudly accredited and in good standing with the Canadian Centre for Accreditation. This means that we routinely undergo an extensive review of our practices and procedures to ensure they meet the rigorous standards for quality of care, and organizational performance. In the current unregulated marketplace of addiction treatment providers, accreditation is how we set ourselves apart from the less reputable providers who can make some of the same claims as we do, but do not provide the quality of care necessary to fulfill those claims.

As part of this intensive process, independent third-party accreditation specialists regularly spend months reviewing and evaluating every aspect of our organization, from our policies and procedures to our facilities. All staff are interviewed to ensure that they are properly certified for the work they do, and that we are routinely receiving the most up-to-date training in areas such as Non-Violent Crisis Prevention and First Aid and CPR. In this way, the accreditation specialists can determine that staff at all levels of our organization are meeting their obligations both to our clients and within the organization, with integrity. The renewal process occurs every four years, which means we are consistently upgrading to meet the Canadian Centre for Accreditation's standards.

There are three accrediting bodies that are recognized by Ontario:

  • Accreditation Canada, which specializes in hospitals and offers a primer course for organizations considering accreditation;
  • Canadian Centre for Accreditation (CCA), which is Ontario-based (but operates country-wide) and specializes in community-based agencies;
  • Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF), which is an American firm.

We chose to undergo the Canadian Centre for Accreditation's process because of their community-based specialty, their Ontario/Canadian foundation, and their philosophy, which is that they are partners with agencies and not only provide peer review audit/surveys, but also provide support to agencies in developing their protocols in order to achieve accreditation.

“I had tried to get sober for close to 4 years without continuity or success. Renascent showed me how to kick-start my path. The 12-step program was essential for learning how to live one day at a time. I am humbled and grateful to say that I have been sober ever since my time as Renascent.” RD
