The Fairwinds Difference

Understanding Prescription Drug Addiction

The opioid crisis is real: In 2019, nearly 50,000 people in the United States died from opioid-involved overdoses. The National Institute on Drug Abuse reports that roughly 21 to 29 percent of patients prescribed opioids for chronic pain misuse them. Also, between 8 and 12 percent of people using an opioid for chronic pain develop an opioid use disorder. Not everyone prescribed opioids will become addicted; however, it’s difficult to predict who will. The likelihood of developing an opioid use disorder depends on many factors, including length of time a person is prescribed to take opioids, the length of time that people continue taking opioids and/or an underlying mental illness.

Tailored Treatments to Overcome Drug Addiction

Addictions often stem from an underlying cause, such as anxiety, depression or personal trauma. Our team of dual-diagnosis experts are specially trained to diagnose and treat underlying conditions, so that you have the best chance of overcoming your addiction and maintaining your recovery. Steps in the process include:


Once you stop taking the drugs, you may experience withdrawal symptoms for a few days while your body rids itself of any residual amounts of the drugs.

Management of Withdrawal symptoms

Some withdrawal symptoms can be serious and may include hallucinations or even seizures. During withdrawal, a team of doctors and nurses will watch over your progress and provide medication as needed.


During this phase, you’ll examine the behaviors that led to your drug abuse and new ways of coping with everyday situations to prevent relapse.
