Former WWE Star Seeking Drug Treatment
The prescription pill epidemic that is going on in America today has truly reached every level of social standing and occupation. Pills like Vicodin, Percocet, Oxycodone, and Morphine are abused by everyone from low-life street criminals to respected actors, musicians, and physicians. These drugs are so addictive that people are now breaking into homes not to try and find a safe with money but to find the medicine cabinet for pills. Because of their extreme addictive capabilities, it’s very important for those who abuse pain killers to admit they have a problem and seek treatment before the addiction gets to a dangerous physically dependent level.
Former WWE (World Wrestling Entertainment) star Maven is one of many Americans that are trying to kick his addiction to prescription drugs. Maven was arrested last month for illegally obtaining over 1000 painkiller pills and his addiction to painkillers has gotten to an unhealthy level. The good news is that he understands this and has agreed to join the WWE’s “Former Talent Rehab Program”, which is a program that uses former wrestlers’ experience to aid in the prevention of substance abuse to upcoming wrestlers, current wrestlers, and the community in general. The WWE and Maven’s efforts are very admirable and they seem to be genuinely committed to preventing the abuse of these dangerously addictive drugs.
It’s unfortunately very common for people to become addicted to prescription painkillers today, but thankfully there’s excellent rehabilitation treatment available to battle these tough painkiller addictions. Individuals who abuse or are addicted to prescription medications can be treated. Initially, they may need to undergo medically supervised detoxification to help reduce withdrawal symptoms—however, that is just the first step. Options for effectively treating addiction to prescription pills are drawn from research on treating heroin addiction. Behavioral treatments combined with medications have proven effective. Finding the right treatment center can make all the difference for a patient because certain standard programs may not work. At Seabrook House, patients can take comfort in knowing that we structure individually inspired detox and rehab programs in order to fit the needs of each unique patient. Seabrook House has rehab facilities located in New Jersey (NJ) and Pennsylvania (PA) and also an outpatient office in New York (NY). If you or a loved one is abusing prescription medications then be sure to contact Seabrook House immediately for the treatment to get on the road to recovery.
