Prescription medication addiction treatment starts with medically supervised tapering. We provide a gentle, slow medication withdrawal.

Prescription medication addiction treatment

If medication tapering is handled poorly at home or at other treatment centers, serious side effects can occur including anxiousness, depression, physical pain, insomnia, intense cravings, nausea, and overall discomfort. At Alternative to Meds Center’s medication withdrawal and addiction treatment center, your prescription medication tapering will be entirely comfortable, supervised, and provided by experienced professionals.

We specialize in prescription drug addiction and offer medically monitored tapering. We provide a variety of treatments and will customize a special tapering program depending on what prescription medications you are taking, your personal medical history, and personal preferences.

Whether you have become dependent on Ambien, Ativan, Oxycontin, Paxil, Valium, Vicodin, Zyprexa or any other prescription drug, we can heal and address your dependence and help you get your life and happiness back. Our philosophy is that we provide a gentle withdrawal, one that can be adjusted to accommodate a person’s tolerance. Each resident participates as a collaborative effort in the decision making process.

How a person handles the process of withdrawal is substantially determined by their physical condition, mental state and genetic makeup. Because of this, no two people will experience the same exact withdrawal process, and each person must be treated by a professional on a case-to-case basis. Research shows that the most effective treatment is one that is customized. Alternative to Meds Center works in tandem with clients to create tailored treatment programs.


Scientifically proven methods effectively relieve withdrawal.  Let our medical professionals customize a treatment plan for you.


What are some of the most common medication withdrawal symptoms?

What are some of the most common medication withdrawal symptoms.

Prescription drug withdrawal symptoms appear in two main forms – physical and emotional. Across the divergent spectrum of medication use, literally hundreds of symptoms exist that a person may experience when stopping a medication. The following represent the most common symptoms, several of which emerge across different medications. Extended times of depression, anxiousness, nervousness, mood swings, physical pain, and desire to injure to oneself. While only a few medications can cause withdrawal symptoms that are defined as dangerous or life threatening, they still cause substantial discomfort for the person and can result in more serious outcomes, such as relapse or suicidal thinking. Alternative to Meds Center knows how to effectually manage medication discontinuation challenges.

Every medication is different, and so is the length of withdrawal experienced by each person. Most individuals will enter into a period of medication tapering that lasts anywhere from a few days to a few weeks depending on the drug and severity of withdrawal. Medication tapering combined with other therapies at Alternative to Meds Center, effectively relieves withdrawal. In some cases, the person in withdrawal will be temporarily switched to another lesser medication to ease the withdrawal that will then be addressed after the more difficult drug has been eliminated.


Withdrawal is a sign of the neurochemistry trying to balance itself.  We know how to make your transition to stability safe and comfortable.
