Understanding Painkiller Addiction
Painkiller addiction can develop in many ways. Some people are prescribed heavy doses of painkillers for chronic pain and eventually become addicted to them; others may become addicted after taking painkillers recreationally in social settings. Some of the most common painkillers that are abused include OxyContin, Vicodin, and Percocet. While painkillers can be effective in treating certain types of acute and chronic pain, they also carry the risk of creating a physical dependence—which is why many people struggling with painkiller addiction turn to our rehab program for help.
Recognizing a painkiller dependency in yourself or a loved one is the first step toward getting help. Common signs of painkiller addiction include:
- Taking painkillers more frequently or in higher doses than prescribed
- Using painkillers to escape from life’s problems, cope with stress, or feel pleasure
- Going to more than one doctor for multiple prescriptions
- Feeling a need to take the drug in order to function on a daily basis
- Experiencing withdrawal symptoms when not taking painkillers
If you notice any of the above signs in yourself or a loved one, it’s time to reach out for help. Roaring Brook Recovery can provide you with the support and care you need to heal from your painkiller addiction through our outpatient program.
