Soma Addiction Rehab

Soma (carisoprodol) may not be the most familiar name in addictive drugs, but this highly effective and highly addictive pain killer is as easy to get hooked on as the more famous Oxycodone or Percocet. Prescribed specifically for musculoskeletal pain, Soma is a muscle relaxer that blocks the pain signals sent to the nerves by the brain, but while the analgesic action of Soma is different than that of opiates, the abuse of Soma and consequent addiction is not.

Prescribed for severe pain from traumatic injury or debilitating muscle spasms, Soma is not supposed to be taken for more than three weeks, because dependency can occur quickly. Withdrawal from Soma addiction is gradual because cutting off usage cold is dangerous; even gradual withdrawal can produce tremors, loss of memory, insomnia, stomach problems and in severe cases, seizures.

Oceanfront Recovery in Laguna Beach, California, is a recovery center highly experienced in treating Soma addiction in Orange County. We understand the intricate problems that develop when Soma abuse leads to Soma dependency and addiction, and are uniquely qualified to handle the withdrawal from the drug and the subsequent process of rebuilding a life without addiction.

Soma abuse has grown exponentially over the past few years, especially among young people. Oceanfront Recovery has witnessed the growth of Soma addiction in Orange County because, here in Laguna Beach, we have a front-row view of this growing problem: just across the border in Mexico, Soma is easy to get. Sold under the brand name Somacid, it can be purchased without a problem from some doctors and pharmacies there. So what may start as your teenager taking your prescription pills from the medicine cabinet at home can quickly become a full-fledged and fully fueled addiction.

At Oceanfront Recovery, we offer high-quality care and real understanding of Soma addiction by an experienced and compassionate staff; many of the staff members have gone through treatment for substance abuse themselves and are dedicated to helping others through the difficult journey to freedom from addiction. We recognize the signs of Soma dependency and realize patients who suffer from it often abuse other substances like Xanax or alcohol in order to enhance the effects of the drug. These dependencies must also be addressed in recovery.
