Painkiller Addiction Treatment

Painkiller Addiction

Get help with painkiller addiction

Addiction to painkillers and other prescription drugs is the fastest growing addiction in the United States – the third most commonly abused category of drugs, behind alcohol and marijuana and ahead of cocaine, heroin, and methamphetamine. An estimated 48 million people have abused prescription drugs, representing nearly 20% of the U.S. population.

Prescription pain relievers include the opioid class of drugs, such as hydrocodone (i.e., Vicodin), oxycodone (i.e., OxyContin), morphine, fentanyl and codeine. Opioids work by mimicking the body’s natural pain-relieving chemicals, attaching to receptors in the brain to block the perception of pain.

Painkiller addiction can begin quite innocently. Highly addictive drugs like Lortab, Oxycotin, Vicodin and Hydrocodone are commonly prescribed by medical doctors to alleviate pain and anxiety due to pain related to surgeries and medical conditions – though warnings of misuse and addiction may not always be discussed.

Some patients can find it easy to not follow the labeling and take these prescription drugs in a manner or dosage other than prescribed, leading them to become addicted to the painkillers that were intended to help.
