Prescription Medication Rehabilitation Centre
Unlike illicit drugs, prescription drug addiction commonly stems from legitimately trying to treat a pre-existing medical condition, rather than for recreational use. This however, does not mean that addiction to drugs prescribed by your GP is any less serious than addictions to illegal substances and alcohol. Although used to treat an ailment, they are still psychoactive substances and can be highly addictive.
There is also unfortunately, a black market for some prescription drugs, which are often stolen or purchased online for their psychoactive effects.
Whatever the source of addiction may be, we can help you or a loved one overcome it and live a fulfilling life.
Some of the most common prescription substances people become addicted to are the most readily available, including:
● Sleeping aids
● Weight control pills
● Anti-anxiety medicines
Addiction to prescribed medications is often harder to identify in a friend or family member. Unlike illicit substances, having a cupboard full of medication obtained from a GP is much less likely to raise concerns than illegal substances or empty bottles of alcohol. However, the following can often be warning signs that a person has an addiction:
● Shopping online for prescribed medication
● Frequent visits to the doctors
● Defensive attitude when questioned about prescription medicine intake
● Allowing personal appearance and hygiene to slip
● Justifying use with complaints of different ailments
