Over the last few decades, prescription drug abuse has grown into a global epidemic. In a society that demands quick fixes to deeply entrenched problems, prescription drugs have become the ultimate cure.
Many doctors readily prescribe powerful medication to patients who don’t fully understand the potency, side effects and addiction potential of the drug. Prescription drug medication is also regarded as more socially acceptable than other types of drugs, which makes it more likely for users to develop a dependency without realising they have a serious problem.
For those trying to quit prescription drugs, the rate of relapse is high. At our prescription drug abuse rehab center, we’ll work with you to overcome the physical symptoms of withdrawal and help you tackle the psychological factors underpinning your addiction. Taking a holistic approach to prescription drug abuse treatment maximizes your chances of achieving long-term sobriety.
Here at Diamond Rehab, we’re firm believers that complete prescription drug rehabilitation requires healing the person as a whole.
Therapy is an important component of rehab for prescription drug addiction. Throughout your prescription drugs rehab programme, our highly qualified therapists will work with you to uncover and confront the underlying issues that lie at the foundation of your addiction. In these personal one-on-one sessions, we’ll examine the formative moments that led to your medical prescription addiction and show you how your body’s signals – the subconscious cues, cravings, and automatic responses – contribute to prescription drug abuse.
Our prescription drug abuse treatment gains deep insight into the inner workings of your mind and body is critical for cultivating healthy behavioural patterns. You’ll learn practical strategies to reduce the risk of relapse and maintain sobriety long after graduating from our prescription drug abuse rehab treatment programme.
The Diamond is more than a rehab for prescription drug abuse. It’s your personal slice of tropical paradise – the perfect place to start the healing process.
The Diamond was born out of a desire to create a comfortable healing environment that doesn’t feel like a conventional prescription drug rehab facility. Unlike some prescription drug rehab centers, which tend to offer highly regimented treatment plans, spartan accommodation, and uncompromising staff, we wanted to create a luxurious sanctuary that feels conducive to recovery. Creating a comfortable environment that people enjoy and want to spend time in encourages clients to fully commit to prescription drug addiction treatment.
Situated in the mountains of Phuket, our prescription drug addiction rehabilitation center offers lush landscapes, sweeping views of the ocean, and resort-style accommodation, fully furnished with a wide range of luxury amenities.
Depending on the nature of your addiction, our clinical team may recommend starting your prescription drug abuse treatment with a detox. The purpose of a detox is to safely manage the cravings and physical withdrawal symptoms you may experience when you stop taking prescription drugs.
Withdrawal symptoms can vary depending on the medication you have been using, but may include:
Drug detox can be both painful and dangerous. Here at our prescription drug rehabilitation center, we offer a comprehensive medically assisted detox program that ensures the detoxification process is as safe, comfortable and effective as possible.
Our prescription drug rehab detox takes place in a private, controlled environment where you’ll receive round-the-clock care as your body clears the drugs from your system. During detox, our certified medical team will provide you with ongoing support and prescribe controlled medication to ease any discomfort you might experience as part of the withdrawal process.
Our prescription drug addiction treatment team is fully committed to your recovery. We understand that withdrawal is different for everyone, and we’ll always do everything we can to ensure your safety as your body learns to function without the presence of drugs.
Mindfulness meditation is an essential part of our prescription drug rehabilitation treatment. The distractions and demands of everyday life make it difficult for many of our clients to properly acknowledge their thoughts and emotions. Someone who is unable to observe and process their feelings is more likely to make decisions without fully considering the consequences, which can contribute to prescription drug addiction and fuel negative behavioural patterns.
Mindfulness meditation is used to undo this learned behaviour. At our prescription drug addiction treatment center, our expert meditation coaches will guide you on a journey of self-discovery as you learn how to strengthen your mindfulness and detach from your thoughts and impulses. During your stay at our prescription drug rehabilitation center, you will learn to be more present, you’ll become more conscious of what’s happening around you before turning your attention inward and exploring the memories, emotions, and trauma that originally led you down the path of addiction.
By the end of your prescription drug abuse treatment, mindfulness meditation will be ingrained into your daily routine. Developing a stronger relationship with yourself will allow you to live with more presence and stability, and ultimately reduce the risk of relapse in the years ahead.
Prescription drug abuse occurs when a person uses prescription medication in a way not intended by the prescribing doctor. Common examples of prescription drug abuse include:
– Taking someone else’s prescription medication for a legitimate medical issue.
– Administering a drug in a manner different from that prescribed by a doctor (e.g. snorting injecting, etc).
– Taking a higher dose than prescribed.
– Using prescription medication for its euphoric effects rather than its medicinal properties.
Over time and with repeated use, prescribed medication abuse can develop into a psychological and physical addiction. For example, some patients quickly develop a tolerance to prescription drugs, which means increasingly higher doses need to be taken in order to achieve the same effects, heightening the risk of dependency. In addition, many prescription drug addicts experience intense withdrawal symptoms when they stop taking their medication, making it difficult to completely stop taking prescription drugs.
Inpatient prescription drug abuse treatment protects you from negative influences and triggers, ensuring there’s nothing to distract you from your recovery journey.
At The Diamond Rehab Thailand, we have experience in treating a wide range of prescription drug addictions.
The following includes some of the most common substances we treat at our prescription drug addiction rehabilitation center:
Prescription opioids such as Oxycodone (OxyContin and Roxicodone), Hydrocodone, Codeine, Tramadol (Ultram), and Fentanyl are commonly used to treat chronic pain. In addition to their pain-relieving properties, many prescription opioids also have a euphoric effect. While prescription opioids are generally safe when taken as prescribed, they carry a high addiction potential. It is extremely common for patients who are prescribed opioids for an injury or illness to develop an addiction to pain medication. Once their prescription expires, many people turn to purchasing prescription opioids from illegal sources or switching to harder and more dangerous forms of opiates such as heroin. Professional pain medication addiction rehab is the most effective way of quitting prescription opioids.
Prescription stimulants such as Dextroamphetamine and Methylphenidate are typically used to treat ADHD and certain sleep disorders. Prescription stimulants have a high potential for abuse due to the way they increase the activity of dopamine, a neurotransmitter involved in the reward system that drives human behavior. When prescription drug addicts stop taking their medication, they experience withdrawal symptoms, which can lead to physical dependency.
Benzodiazepines such as Lorazepam, Diazepam, and Alprazolam are central nervous system depressants that are commonly prescribed for anxiety, insomnia, and seizures. They work by increasing the effect of gamma-aminobutyric acid, an inhibitory neurotransmitter that slows down certain body functions. Users quickly develop a tolerance to benzodiazepines which, combined with the widespread availability of the drug, can lead to addiction.

It is important that the client finish what he/she signed up for. Overall, we advise that 6 -8 weeks in treatment is average and gives the client a good foundation to start a new life at home with the proper aftercare.
