Physical and mental dependency on medicinal drugs is a problem in many countries. Millions of people get addicted to prescription drug like painkiller every year and the number is still increasing. In recent years, the amount of pharmaceutical drug abuse has increased to an alarming level. And no one can do anything about that, since it is a legal drug. The only way to prevent painkiller addiction is informing people about its side effects. Many school, college and companies nowadays organize drug tests to find who are addicted. The fear of losing job and getting expelled out of school and college forces people to leave drug addiction.

But, what about those who are already addicted to drugs? They cannot leave their addiction under any pressure. Moreover, it is impossible to leave drug addiction without adequate treatment in a proper drug rehabilitation center. A person can never leave his addiction by himself, his mind and body won’t let him do that. Even if he tries his best to get rid of the addiction, failure is sure because of the pain of the withdrawal effect they have to face. The only way an addict has, is getting treatment from a rehab, where he can stop taking the drugs and also overcome the pain.

A rapid detox program in a rehab is the first step conducted. During this treatment, all the drug particles present in the addicts body is eliminated very slowly by certain methods. The detoxification is a very painful process, as the withdrawal effects show up very fast during this process. The patients get restless in need of their drugs. They feel acute pain in their body; they suffer from muscle cramps, insomnia. The mental pressure created during this period is more or less unbearable. The patients need immense mental support in this time which is impossible to get if they get treatment at home. Whereas, the expert medical staffs are able to provide that support to the patients.

Among those entire drug rehabs that has grown up, very few are effective. Mainly, the private drug rehabilitation centers like the Drug Rehab Sunset Malibu, which are known all over the country for their service are good for rehabilitation.
