Drug therapies have continued to develop as the problem of addiction continues to increase in The United States. Each year of the past decade has seen nearly 1.6 million new prescription drug users. Specialists believe that many doctors indiscriminately prescribe pain medication without considering the long-term effect it might have on a patient, and that this oversight often leads to addiction.

Prescription drug therapies have not traditionally experienced high success rates in among their patients. Therapies do not always address all aspects of addiction, nor do they always focus on each patient's specific history, health, or personality. After experiencing this generalized treatment, many users quickly slide back into drug abuse.

Rapid Drug Therapies for Opiate Addiction

The majority of prescription painkillers on the market today are opiate derivatives. In order to combat dependence to these drugs, doctors have developed new techniques that approach opiate addiction as a chemical imbalance that can be treated safely, successfully, and rapidly. Using Accelerated Neuro-Regulation (ANR), one of the more progressive drug therapies, in conjunction with pre and post treatment, clinics are able release patients after only forty-eight hours.

After undergoing this treatment, patients are said to be free of physical addiction. They have also avoided the pain and fear that frequently accompany withdrawal. Clinics that utilize ANR, The Waissman Method, or other forms of rapid detox commonly report higher success rates than those clinics that employ the more traditional drug therapies. As breakthroughs are made in addiction research, treatments for those afflicted with the sickness will continue to evolve.
