25 Jul Prescription Drug Addiction Rehab
Opiates, a class of drugs that includes both prescription medication and illicit substances, are at the center of the opioid epidemic in the US. Prescription drugs can help reduce pain from chronic conditions and make recovering from surgery more comfortable, among other uses. Although prescription drugs are largely effective at reducing pain, they are also highly addictive.
When used as prescribed, patients can enjoy the benefits of prescription medications while recovering from illness or injury. Addiction often occurs when a patient uses more of a drug than is prescribed due to the desire for stronger effects.
Signs and Symptoms of Prescription Drug Addiction
The signs of opiate addiction are distinct from symptoms of other types of drugs. If you have a loved one you suspect has an addiction, knowing the symptoms of prescription drug addiction can help you know when to stage an intervention.
The symptoms of prescription drug addiction include:
- Seeming ‘high’ (euphoric)
- Confusion and mental changes
- Coordination changes
- Taking higher doses than prescribed
- Poor decision-making
- Extreme mood swings
- Changes in sleep patterns
- Loss of interest in hobbies, family, and relationships
- Losing prescriptions or needing frequent refills
- Taking prescriptions from friends or family
Identifying prescription drug addiction early can improve the chances of successful rehabilitation. Elite Home Detox can help.
