Prescription Medication Dependence

Counselling and therapy for Prescription Medication Dependence

Many prescribed drugs can make a patient become dependent and addicted to using them.

Conditions which tend to become associated with prescription medication dependency include chronic pain (back pain and particularly recurrent headaches), sleep problems, bowel symptoms, anxiety, and elderly agitation or management problems.

How Can I Start Treatment?

By calling our counselling team on 0203 326 9160. We will recommend one of our clinical team who specialise in prescription medication dependency.

Treatment starts with an initial meeting, in which you will chat with one of our counsellors. If you decide that you are comfortable with your counsellor and that you can speak with them easily, you will start to work with them on your plan for recovery.

Calls to us are completely confidential.

Treatment for Prescription Medication Dependency

It is important to seek guidance from a medical health professional if an individual believes they have become addicted to prescribed medication as unsupervised withdrawal can trigger other symptoms like depression, anxiety, insomnia and other physical issues.

Obviously prescription medication dependency tends to be associated with a doctor starting the ball rolling by prescribing such drugs in the first place, and so the predicament is complicated by a difficult relationship with doctors arising from this past problem. Our experts have a lot of experience in negotiating the client through this landmine, and building the necessary trust which leads to recovery.

  • Many thanks for this and all your work in helping us get here far more swiftly than we have managed with the NHS. It is much appreciated, and you and Dr Chowdhury have helped greatly in relieving the stress we have been feeling by getting us to a place where we know what is going on, and what we need to do for our son.
