You’re Not Alone and You Can Get Help

Prescription addiction affects millions of Americans and is currently one of the country’s leading public health crises. According to data from the National Institute on Drug Abuse between prescription painkillers, benzodiazepines and antidepressants, prescription overdose killed over 30,700 people in 2018. There are many types of prescription medications that are driving this pandemic, and each one has its own physical and psychological effects of abuse:

  • Opioids: Constipation, nausea, euphoria, slow or shallow breathing, drowsiness and fatigue, confusion and disorientation, lack of coordination, tolerance (increased dosage required for pain relief, hyperalgesia (worsening sensitivity to pain and more.
  • Benzodiazepines: Drowsiness, confusion, trouble walking and concentrating, slurred speech, impaired concentration, dizziness and nausea, trouble sleeping, memory issues, slowed and shallowed breathing.
  • Stimulants: Increased alertness, euphoria, accelerated heartbeat, high blood pressure, increased body temperature, reduced appetite, excess weight loss, anxiety and irritability, paranoia, trouble sleeping, inability to concentrate and more.

Common behavioral and lifestyle signs of prescription abuse include going to different doctors when you’re no longer able to get a supply from your original prescribing physician (doctor shopping), legal and family issues associated with prescription abuse, and the inability to think about anything other than your next dose.

How Can I Get Help for My Prescription Drug Addiction?

You’ve already taken the first courageous and inspiring step toward recovery from prescription drug addiction by admitting that a problem exists. The next step is to find a treatment resource that can help you address the full scope of your problem, including your immediate medical needs and the behavioral issues that have triggered and sustained prescription abuse. You also need to find a facility that can connect you with medical care for your original issue, whether it’s chronic pain, anxiety or anything else. One of the cruel ironies about prescription addiction is that it usually makes the problem for which you started taking the medications even worse. Prescription drug treatment is a medical procedure and should be customized to address your unique care needs, including:

Your Withdrawal Symptoms

Depending upon the type and duration of your prescription drug abuse history, withdrawal can be painful, sickening and even life-threatening. You haven’t been able to stop on your own because stopping triggers intense cravings and withdrawal symptoms.
