Prescription Drug Rehab Perth

Kick your prescription drug addiction at our Perth day rehab clinic


At The Whitehaven Clinic, our team understand that dealing with problematic prescription drug use and prescription drug addiction can be a challenging decision. The journey to recovery begins with finding the right private prescription drug rehab centre in Perth that can tailor an individualised program for you.  You do not require a GP referral to become a client at The Whitehaven Clinic.


The Whitehaven Clinic is accredited to deliver the Addiction Recovery Process Program through its day rehab centre in Perth. This is a comprehensive treatment program designed to identify and treat the underlying root cause of addictive behaviours and problematic use. It treats all types of addiction including prescription drug addiction and problematic use.


Common Forms of Prescription Drug Addiction in Australia

Misuse of prescription drugs can lead to severe health consequences, including addiction, overdose, and even death.  The most commonly misused and addictive prescription drugs are:


  1. Opioids: Opioid medications, such as oxycodone, codeine, and morphine, are frequently prescribed to manage moderate to severe pain.
  2. Benzodiazepines: Benzodiazepines, including diazepam and alprazolam, are prescribed to treat anxiety, insomnia, and certain seizure disorders.
  3. Stimulants: Prescription stimulants, such as dexamphetamine and methylphenidate, are commonly used to treat attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and narcolepsy.


Signs of Prescription Drug Addiction

Signs of prescription drug addiction can include things like taking the drug in a way it wasn’t intended, taking more than the prescribed dose, taking it more often and crushing pills into powder to snort or inject the drug.


Other symptoms of prescription drug addiction can include:


  • Needing to take more and more of the prescription drug in order to achieve the desired effects
  • Ordering prescription medication over the internet
  • Visiting multiple doctors for the same condition to obtain more medication
  • Taking prescription medication faster than prescribed
  • ‘Losing’ prescriptions and frequently requesting replacements
  • Forging or stealing prescriptions
  • Intense cravings
  • Taking prescription drugs despite the negative effects it’s caused you
  • Withdrawal symptoms if you stop taking the drug
  • Mood swings
  • Anxiety and irritability

The Whitehaven Clinic Day Rehab Program for Prescription Drug Addiction


The Whitehaven Clinic is Perth’s leading private drug rehab clinic offering a comprehensive treatment program designed to address the physical, emotional, and psychological aspects of problematic use and prescription drug addiction. Our carefully constructed day rehab program is tailored to meet your unique needs and provides a supportive and caring environment for recovery.


Your attendance to our program is confidential and your prescription drug rehab program is delivered one-on-one.  There are no group sessions, nor do we use a 12-step program.  Instead, we use world’s best practice in a proprietary based program that combines different treatment modalities into one comprehensive program.


All program facilitators and counsellors are accredited to use our proprietary based Addiction Recovery Process Program in our day rehab program in Perth.  Our services are delivered to ensure an excellent standard of care and professionalism.


Our Day Rehab Program Process

Day rehab is a structured and comprehensive treatment option designed to provide support and therapeutic interventions for you while you are struggling with problematic use, alcohol dependency or alcohol addiction.


Unlike residential rehabilitation, you will attend your appointment each day and then return home or to work, allowing you to maintain your daily routines and responsibilities while receiving the necessary support and treatment. Attendance at our Perth day rehab clinic starts daily for the first three weeks and then tapers down over a 12 – 14 week period, with an ongoing maintenance program.


If possible, we recommend that you take three weeks leave for the initial part of your program to ensure that you get the best from the program and are able to focus on your health. This is highly recommended if you are required to do a medical detox.


Addiction Recovery Programs for Family and Partners

Research shows that family and partners are an important part of a client’s support network, but they also need support and help navigating through the recovery journey of your prescription drug addiction.


Our programs are designed to have separate family and/or partner sessions so that they can learn and develop strategies to best support you in your recovery journey.
