How Narconon Handles Pain Pill Addiction

Whether a drug is prescribed or taken illegally it still carries an addictive potential. This is very true with prescription drug addiction as more than 10 million people are currently abusing these drugs, according to the most recent reports.

When someone takes any medication that is not prescribed to them, they can become addicted to this drug. Even those that start out taking prescriptions for an illness or accident can become addicted quite innocently. With prescriptions you also have tolerance, which means that you have to take more and more of the drug to achieve the same effect.

Pain pill abuse is the fastest growing drug problem in the United States. Many think that because prescription meds are legal, they are not as dangerous as illicit drugs, but that couldn’t be further from the truth.

What Toll It Takes

The Center for Disease Control reports that drug deaths were the second most common form of death next to motor vehicle accidents. Of these deaths the most common forms were poisonings from heroin, cocaine and prescription drugs. In the last 20 years there has been an increase of 10-fold, of the use of prescription painkillers.

In addition, 2.8 percent of the population of the United States has used a prescription drug non-medically.

Families struggle with loved ones who are addicted to prescriptions that, without help, do not recover. The problem also affects workplace accidents, crime and costs to society as a whole. Not to mention the negative consequences of prescription abuse that society as a whole has to experience.
