The Centers for Disease Control claims that in 2015 alone over 33,000 Americans lost their lives to prescription opiates and heroin. Are you misusing or abusing a medication without a prescription, or in a way other than prescribed? It could be a painkiller, an anti-anxiety medication, a stimulant, or a variety of prescribed drugs. Prescription drug addiction is complicated because your medication was likely prescribed to treat a specific illness or condition, but many of these medications are highly addictive. If you’re not careful, a serious prescription drug addiction could arise before you know what hit you. This is where prescription drug rehab in Texas can help.
If you or a loved one is struggling with prescription drug abuse, know that you are not alone. The National Institute on Drug Abuse found that over 52 million Americans used prescription drugs in a non medical fashion, and over 2 million were addicted to prescription painkillers.
America is currently experiencing the worst drug epidemic in history, and prescription painkillers are one of the main culprits. In 2015, over 20,000 people died from prescription painkiller overdoses alone. So how can you avoid becoming a statistic? By getting yourself the treatment you deserve.
