Get Off Meds – A New Way of Finding the Right Prescription Drug Addiction Treatment Program
Prescription drug addiction is skyrocketing in the United States and people are looking for detoxification and drug treatment programs that are right for them. One program is not right for everyone. This is where Get Off Meds fills a vital need.

According to the 2010 National Survey on Drug Use and Health drug abuse and addiction cost employers over 122 billion dollars in lost productivity and another 15 billion dollars in health insurance costs. Prescription drug overdose deaths have now reached epidemic proportions in the United States and an analysis of recent information released by the Center for Disease Control shows, for the first time in history, deaths from prescription drug overdoses outstripping those attributable to vehicle accidents.
This problem of prescription drug addiction has created a growing need for workable and effective treatment programs. However no one type of program is right for every addict. Each person is different. There is no “one size fits all” addiction treatment or detoxification program.
Some factors that need to be considered when matching the individual with the proper treatment are:
How long has the person been taking the medication?
How many medications are they on?
Are there factors in their home environment that would help or hinder them in getting through withdrawals in an outpatient setting?
Will their own doctor work with them on getting off the drugs?
Will the person need an in-patient setting to best achieve full results?
Can the person get away for the time it will take to complete an in-patient program?
The question has been where can a person go to get real and unbiased guidance in finding the program that will work best for them?
The answer is here with Get Off Meds. This new addiction treatment consulting service helps prescription drug addicts find the treatment program that’s right for them.
The consultants at Get Off Meds specialize in matching the individual with the right prescription addiction treatment program.
