Addiction to prescription drugs is one of the fastest-growing addictions in the world. It can begin with a simple prescription for pain killers for a legitimate medical condition but for some, active addiction takes hold and it can feel like there is no way out or back.
The main culprits when it comes to addiction to prescription drugs are anticonvulsants and painkillers, including but not limited to, Valium, Lortab, Oxycontin, Vicodin, Xanax, Hydrocodone, even Methadone.
In general, people with an active addiction are prone to isolation and silent suffering. You will no doubt know the anxiety brought on by constant ‘doctor shopping’ to find a GP who will give you what you want. There’s the shame of dishonesty. The prescription-stealing and forging. The hiding. The slow cutting of ties with the people you love, the excessive mood swings, the long periods of withdrawal from the world, the lethargy, the sheer and overwhelming feeling of hopelessness.
