Prescription Drug Addiction Treatment

Prescription Drug Addiction Help in Essex & London

How Prescription Drug Addiction Starts

Prescription medications are very different to recreational drugs in that they have legitimate medical uses. It’s these medical uses however that also happens to be their downfall and when used outside of doctor recommendations, addictions can occur.

Prescription drug addictions are just as real as any other type of addiction and can become a life-altering problem for anyone.

Prescription Drugs That Can Cause Addiction

Far too many make the mistake of assuming prescription drugs are safe and less addictive but this simply isn’t true for those with psychoactive effects. Regardless of how a psychoactive substance is obtained or used, it has the potential to become addictive from:

  • Opiates
  • Antidepressants,
  • Sleeping pills
  • Anxiety medication
  • ADHD drugs
  • Weight loss tablets

These are common prescription drugs that all have the potential to cause addiction.

Signs & Symptoms Of Prescription Drug Addiction

Prescription drug addiction can and often does have a major impact on the user’s life and those around them. The effects of prescription drug use are both physical and mental and as such, need professional treatment solutions in order to overcome.

While prescription drug addicts are a lot better at hiding their addiction and associated behaviours, there are other noticeable side effects that you may see. These include:

  • More frequent doctor visits
  • Online shopping for prescription drugs
  • More regular complaints regarding own health
  • A decline in performance at work/school
  • Defensive attitude when discussing prescription drugs
  • Less inclination to take care of the appearance
  • Mood swings
  • Irritability
  • Unsteady movements and even
  • Increased alcohol consumption between drug use

Why Should You Be Careful Taking Prescription Drugs?

While some prescription drug addicts begin with a very legitimate reason, an illness for instance that has required medication from a medical doctor, others may well obtain prescription drugs via other means.

Prescription drug addiction can begin simply through the use of said drugs in ways that aren’t recommended by the doctor prescribing them. As tolerance levels increase, so too can the amount being taken, and it’s this that can and does lead to prescription drug addiction.
