Prescription Drug Addiction Treatment Crestwood KY

Treatment for older patients who have become addicted to medications prescribed for them should not follow the same protocols as treatment of those who became addicts through recreational use of drugs. While some principles of twelve-step programs can be useful, they tend to focus on psychological and emotional pain rather than physical pain.
