People who have become addicted to prescription drugs need to undergo the same treatment that other substance abusers─ like alcoholics─ go through for them to return to their normal lives. Concerned relatives or even those who have become aware of their addiction can check themselves into drug rehab facilities to start their treatment.
However, kicking a drug habit is more than just getting detoxified of the drugs and told to do better. Drug addiction stems from internal needs that had only been met by abusing the drugs, usually as a way to deal with stress. The true way to defeat a drug habit is to change yourself and the best way to do that is to undergo therapy. This is why many drug rehab facilities offer counseling sessions as part of their treatment plan.
