Browsing Stamford Treatment Centers
Drug rehabs in Stamford offer a number of different styles of treatment for those who are trying to break free from drug abuse and addiction. The most common drugs of abuse in the state are prescription painkillers like Vicodin, Percocet, OxyContin and others.
The problem of prescription painkiller abuse can occur with a single prescription, leftover prescriptions, or black market pills sold on the street. The biggest immediate risk is overdose. Second in line is addiction to the medications.
Many develop an addiction in a fairly short amount of time, and unexpectedly experience severe withdrawal symptoms when they attempt to stop abusing the drugs.

A Guide to Being Admitted Into a Treatment Center
The abuse of prescription drugs is more than just a case of using leftover OxyContin prescriptions for a headache.
Three federal Transportation Security Administration and two other law enforcement officials were arrested for allegedly accepting bribes to allow the transport of illegal prescription drugs through major airports – many of which ended up in Connecticut, coming up from New York. Drug trafficking of heavy-duty painkillers is big business, just like every other illegal substance sold on the street. And the ones who suffer the most are the people who develop a dependence upon these substances and their family members.
Getting Rehab Centers in Stamford
What types of drug rehabilitation programs in Stamford will best serve your needs? It depends upon your experience with painkillers and other circumstances in your life. Consider:
- The duration of your addiction to painkillers
- Whether or not you live in a home that is conducive to sobriety and recovery
- Your other medical and mental health issues
- Your responsibilities to other family members
In some cases, an outpatient drug rehab program in Stamford may be sufficient to address your issues with prescription painkillers. In other cases, a more intensive residential addiction treatment program will be more effective. Would you like to speak to someone about which one would be the right choice for you?
