Understanding Signs of RX Addiction

The signs of an addiction to prescription medications vary from client to client. Overall, however, you should always be on the lookout for several physical or emotional signs of addiction. Examples include a sudden withdrawnness from social activity or protectiveness around taking a prescription of choice.

Keep in mind that if you have concerns about yourself or a loved one showing signs of addiction, you can always address these worries when you initially call in and speak to one of our recovery specialists.

Why Rx Addiction Is on the Rise

Sadly, many people initially become addicted to prescription medication through no fault of their own. For example, if you suffer an injury or are recovering from surgery, your doctor may prescribe you prescription medication to ease your body’s pain. When the length of time you take these medications goes unchecked, you run the risk of developing a full-fledged addiction.

Additionally, there has been a rise in how easy it is to illegally obtain these types of drugs. Using this method removes the necessity of going through a doctor and allows you for somewhat more straightforward access to your drug of choice.

The Most Abused RX Medications

The most commonly abused prescription medications fall into three different standard categories: depressants, opioids, and stimulants. You may be surprised to learn that Ambien, a popular drug used to treat insomnia, is considered a depressant because it helps slow your body down and relax into sleep.

In many cases, opioids are used primarily to combat pain. For example, if you needed to get dental work done, there is a chance that your dentist may prescribe Oxycontin to you for a set number of days until the bulk of the pain subsides.

Adderall is an example of a stimulant commonly referred to as people trying to combat a condition such as ADHD or ADD. The drug explicitly impacts the central nervous system and, in many cases, can help you to focus on the task at hand. However, similar to any other prescription medication, your dosing levels must be closely monitored so that addiction does not develop.

Dangers of RX Addiction

Several dangers are commonly associated with an addiction to prescription medication. First and foremost, there is always an immediate danger to your physical well-being. If you inadvertently lose track of how much of a specific medicine you have consumed, there is a high possibility that you may accidentally overdose. Although an accidental overdose may not result in death, there is a chance that there could be severe physical consequences to it.
