Addiction Treatment for Prescription Pills
For the most part, prescription pills are effective at achieving their medical goals; however, they may also pose an addiction risk if taken incorrectly.
Data shows that up to 16 million Americans–-6% of the population—misuse prescription pills every year.
To put that into perspective, the most populated city in the US is NYC, with less than 9 million habitants. It would then take nearly two full New Yorks to account for all of the Americans struggling with prescription pill misuse.
Staggering—to say the least.
If you or a loved one is struggling with prescription pill abuse, then you are unquestionably not alone.
There are many more Americans going through the same struggles. But fortunately, it doesn’t have to stay that way.

THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN USE AND ABUSE
What Is Prescription Pill Abuse?
It is common to use prescription drugs to treat a wide range of health problems. These medications can alleviate pain, reduce inflammation, relieve a variety of symptoms, and treat mental disorders such as anxiety and depression when taken as directed.
They can, however, lead to abuse, dependence, and death when taken otherwise than as prescribed by a doctor.
It is, fortunately, possible to detect prescription pill abuse early, resulting in timely intervention and saving the addict from severe hardships and potential demise.
With prolonged use, prescription pills can change the addict’s brain chemistry, leading to physical dependence.
Once addicts develop physical dependence they may need a detox treatment to be able to safely cleanse from drugs in their system.
Dependence also makes it difficult for addicts to make the right decisions and seek to get help on their own. For this reason, it’s critical that family members and those close to the addict are able to identify the signs and symptoms of prescription pill addiction.
Prescription pills are commonly abused by recreational users, but that’s not always the case. Patients can also fall into addictive habits if they take the prescriptions out of the norm.
Those with addictive traits or personalities could be at even higher risk for abuse.
For example, an accident patient who is prescribed opioids might decide to overmedicate to manage the pain. While the patient has a legitimate need, his body tolerance is likely to be affected and could ultimately lead to unintended addiction.
Are you worried that you or one of your loved ones may be suffering from prescription pill abuse?
Have you or someone you love taken pills differently than prescribed?

Which Pills Are the Most Dangerous?
Are All Prescription Pills Abused?
Prescriptions aren’t all abused—for instance, we don’t often hear about statins addicts.
Some prescriptions pose a greater risk than others due to their side effects and potential for physical dependence,
In fact, a study shows that nearly 50% of Americans reportedly take some form of prescription, many of which have no risk of addiction.
These riskier drugs are mainly broken up into three categories; stimulants, depressants, and opioids.
They are commonly used to treat pain and are usually administered to patients who recently received surgery, have a terminal disease like cancer, and/or have suffered from a grave injury.
This class of prescription pill is from the same family as morphine and heroin, hence having both similar numbing and addictive effects.
Opioid prescription pills include drugs such as Percocet, Oxycodone, Codeine, and Hydromorphone
There were over 150,000 opioid drug overdose deaths in the United States in 2020 amounting to over 16% of all 932,000 drug overdose deaths in the US since 1999 in a single year.
Medical stimulants are used to treat impulsive behaviors and attention disorders such as ADHD and narcolepsy. Stimulants give users a boost of energy, alertness, and increased attention.
Prescription pill stimulants can have similar effects to illicit drugs such as cocaine, crystal meth, and speed.
A study carried out in 2020 found that close to 5 million people—1.8% of the population— reported stimulant prescription pill misuse in that year.
Common prescription pill stimulants that get abused frequently include names such as Ritalin, Adderall, and Dexedrine.
Stimulants like Adderall are commonly abused by youth or college students, who mainly are able to get a hold of them from other classmates.
They are the opposite of stimulants. They help patients relax and sedate, calming their nerves.
The drugs affect a brain chemical called gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA). As a result of GABA, the brain’s activity is lowered, and you become drowsy or calm.
These prescription pills are commonly used in the treatment of anxiety, panic attacks, seizures, and sleep disorders.
Depressants can have similar effects to illicit drugs such as marijuana and alcohol.
Prescription pill depressants include drugs such as barbiturates, benzodiazepines, and sleep medications. These are better known by the names Xanax, Valium, Ativan, and Ambien.
