Addiction to prescribed meds
ADDICTION TO PRESCRIBED MEDICATIONS
In recent years there has been a dramatic increase in the prevalence of addiction to prescription medication. This form of addiction often starts with legally prescribed medication for a legitimate medical condition, but unfortunately for many people this can escalate into a devastating addiction to prescription drugs.
Some of the more common medications to which people may become addicted include anticonvulsants and painkillers, including but not limited to, Valium, Lortab, Oxycontin, Vicodin, Xanax, Hydrocodone and Methadone. Addiction to prescription drugs often involves behaviours such as ‘doctor shopping’ to find a GP that will prescribe certain medications, forging prescriptions and stealing or otherwise illegally obtaining prescription drugs. Similarly to other forms of addiction, addiction to prescription medication can have a hugely destructive impact on physical health, psychological well-being, relationships, career and finances.
