There are many people living with a prescription drug addiction simply because these drugs can be obtained easily through a doctor. Even though they are legal, they may cause a strong addiction that causes withdrawal symptoms similar to heroin withdrawal.
Prescription drug addiction is wide spread and people are addicted to sleeping pills, pain killers, tranquilizers, slimming medication and antidepressants.
They are known as “Pill Junkies” and they use these medications for different reasons other than what the prescription is intended for. In the early stages the use might start out harmless, but it soon turns into a prescription drug addiction which is difficult to get rid of.
Treating prescription drug addiction can be very difficult when the addict is in denial. The addict will deny the dangers of the drugs because they can legally obtain it from a pharmacy. It’s also easier to deny an addiction of prescribed drugs, because ‘how can it be bad if it gets prescribed by doctors?’
