Prescription Painkiller Addiction Treatment
The Discovery House offers an effective painkiller addiction treatment program, and we understand how important this kind of rehab is. Prescription drug addiction affects millions of Americans, and now causes more deaths every year than automobile accidents.
Prescription drugs come in many varieties, including:
Many people today who are addicted to painkillers have had no prior history of drug addiction; they simply became dependent on medications their doctor prescribed for an illness or injury. Highly addicting prescription drugs can quickly take over an individual’s life and cause them to rely on the medications.
Obtaining Prescription Drugs
Painkiller addiction is common today because these substances are easy to buy. People who are addicted to street drugs will sometimes switch to prescription drugs that are cheaper and more readily available. Prescription drugs are often obtained illegally by users who doctor shop and get their prescriptions filled at different pharmacies. Many others buy their drugs from neighbors, relatives, or friends who are willing to sell for some quick money.
A big problem with prescription drugs is that they are commonly abused by young people. Teens can easily obtain drugs from their parent’s or grandparent’s medicine cabinet. Because the drugs are legal with a prescription, young people often do not see the danger in these substances, and feel more comfortable taking them than illicit street drugs. Abusing prescription drugs is dangerous, however, and many cause severe side effects including overdose and death.
