Break the chains of prescription drug abuse
Maybe it started with ADHD medication when they were a teen. Or maybe an injury provided the first prescription to an opioid. Maybe dealing with an anxiety disorder with Xanax became more destructive than helpful. Whatever the case may be, there are many people today who struggle with an addiction to prescription drugs. According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse over 52 million Americans over the age of 12 have abused prescription medication in their lifetime.
This is a highly problematic issue and it is growing. Prescription drug abuse is just as dangerous as the abuse of illicit drugs and can take over a person’s life, destroying their work ethic, relationships and more. It doesn’t have to be that way though. With the proper treatment anyone who is willing to commit to a sober lifestyle can find freedom from the chains of prescription drug abuse and addiction.
In 2010 alone 8.76 million individuals abuse prescription drugs. You are not alone in your struggle and thankfully there is help. It is okay to admit to having trouble with prescription drug abuse. It is the first step to finding vital help that can save your life.
When looking for help it is important to go over your situation with a doctor. This allows for a proper diagnosis which can identify any underlying disorders that may be fueling the abuse and help you to find the treatment that will work the best for you.
