Why Recovery Programs Should be Careful with Prescription Drugs

March 14, 2019

Dangers of Mixing Prescriptions with Street Drugs At most Adult & Teen Challenge addiction recovery centers, we offer drug addiction help without also giving our students prescriptions drugs.

These addiction recovery programs will give substance abusers pharmaceuticals to help them deal with the pain of withdrawal. Some other medications supposedly help keep people from relapsing after leaving their addiction recovery program. We take an alternate approach because we know how street drugs can interact with pharmaceuticals in a terrible way. We prefer to change behaviors first and foremost.
