Prescription Addiction

in Treatment

Prescription drug addiction has become a serious health issue. Many people who begin using these prescribed drugs for legitimate reasons are finding themselves unable to stop taking them even when they are no longer needed, while others are simply addicted and using them as their drug of choice.
Persons may obtain these drugs through doctor shopping, purchase them from a street dealer, steal them or attempt to forget their own prescriptions.

Signs of prescription addiction often includes the inability to stop using the drugs, withdrawal symptoms when a user attempts to quit, a preoccupation with taking the drug, taking increased dosages of the drugs and using even after they are no longer physically necessary. 
These are signs that a person has developed an addiction to prescription drugs. When you see a friend or family member begins to see such signs, it is important to get help as soon as possible. Prescription drug abuse can cause a host of mental and physical problems that are best dealt with promptly.
Prescription drug abuse means taking a prescription medication that is not prescribed for the user, or taking it for reasons or in dosages other than as prescribed by a doctor. Abusei of prescription drugs can produce serious health effects, including strong addiction or serve as a gateway drug to other illegal drugs such as heroin.
The detoxification process of any prescription drug should be done under medical supervision as the symptoms that can accompany withdrawal are both physically and psychologically demanding and challenging. 
Those suffering with an addiction to prescription drugs can find themselves in an overwhelming and an isolating experience, but it is important for one to remember that you do not have to be alone.  Having the help of a professional treatment facility or prescription drug rehab center can allow for the best care and treatment, and ultimately, give you the tools you need to overcome this addiction successfully.
