Those who struggle with an addiction to prescription medication often were prescribed the pills by a doctor. This can make recognizing addiction very difficult because the pills are seen as helpful medicine, not what they truly are, a dangerous and addictive drug. The need for relief from the pain is genuine, however, the problem is that your body develops a resistance to the pain pills. Higher and higher doses are required to overcome the body’s growing tolerance. Eventually, the need is not for relief from the pain, but for the opiate itself. This dependency sneaks into your life just as any other dependency does; quietly and with little fanfare. The pills are legal, making this a more challenging addiction in many ways. It can take people much longer to realize they have a dependency because the pills are coming from their doctor. If you suspect that you are hooked on opiates, don’t wait to get treatment. Call your Treatment Center today at (727) 386-8071 from the Clearwater, FL area. The sooner you get help, the sooner you can heal.
