Substance use disorders impact tens of millions of Americans from all walks of life. The current opioid epidemic started in the early 1990s when the pharmaceutical industry began a massive marketing campaign promoting prescription opioids like Oxycontin as being minimally addictive. In addition to opioids prescribed for pain, there has been a significant increase in the use of other prescription medications, including benzodiazepines, stimulants, and sleeping pills. While effective in treating numerous conditions, these medications are also highly addictive and are frequently abused. If you or a loved one is abusing or addicted to prescription medications, a prescription drug rehab center can help.
At Spokane Falls Recovery Center, we understand that choosing a drug addiction treatment program for yourself or a loved one is difficult. We are here to help guide you on what to expect in a drug rehab program and help you choose a program that is right for you.

When to Choose Drug Addiction Treatment in Spokane
Prescription drug abuse occurs when medication is taken other than the way it was prescribed. For some, it can be hard to realize that there is a problem when the medication is being legally obtained from a doctor. Prescription drug abuse can affect people of all ages, including teenagers and the elderly. Identifying and treating prescription drug abuse early can prevent it from becoming an addiction. If you’re unsure whether you or a loved one is misusing or addicted to prescription drugs, consider these questions:
- Are you running out of your prescription early or using it other than directed?
- Do you get agitated, anxious, or physically ill if you do not have your medication?
- Are you taking pills that belong to other people or buying them illegally?
- Do you have multiple prescriptions from different doctors?
- Has anyone expressed concern about your prescription drug use?
Having physical or psychological cravings or continuing to use prescription medications despite negative consequences are strong indications that substance abuse treatment in Spokane might be right for you.
Knowing What to Anticipate Can Help
Choosing to seek drug addiction treatment in Spokane can be less frightening when you know what to expect. It is important to research available services to make sure the program you choose is best suited to your needs. For many, the best choice is a medically supervised detox, followed by inpatient treatment. In Washington, Spokane Falls Recovery Center offers a variety of other treatment program options to choose from, such as:
- Court-ordered treatment and legal support services
- Individual and group therapy
- Partial hospitalization program (PHP)
- Addiction outpatient program (OP)
- Intensive outpatient program (IOP)
- Co-occurring disorders treatment program
The first step in substance abuse treatment is intake screening and assessment, where a trained clinician can learn about your circumstances to determine the best course of treatment to meet your individual needs. Brief intervention services are question-and-answer sessions designed to motivate individuals resistant to treatment to seek the help they need. How long you are in treatment will depend upon your substance abuse or addiction level, your goals for treatment, and how motivated you are to succeed.
No matter which program you are participating in, you can expect to receive individual and group counseling, education about addiction, life skills coaching, 12-step meetings, relapse prevention, and more. You will work with our team to create a holistic, individualized recovery plan designed to restore your physical, mental, and spiritual well-being.
