What we need to get across, is that anyone who takes Vicodin for any reason – whether it’s via prescription from their doctor, or illegal recreation use – is at risk of developing a very serious and potentially deadly addiction.
Battle Creek, MI (PRWEB) December 03, 2013
A Forever Recovery, a leading addiction treatment center that has pioneered a moral reasoning approach to recovery that empowers each individual client to access the spiritual, cognitive, and fellowship support that they need, is focusing on addiction and dependency of Vicodin in its latest blog post.
The blog post notes that addiction and dependency of Vicodin is often the result of individuals who initially used the medication as per prescription, yet over time found that they required more and more to manage pain and achieve a sense of well-being. Eventually, even these positive effects fade, and individuals need Vicodin just to feel and function normally.
The blog post continues by pointing out that long-term Vicodin use changes the brain’s composition, which adversely impacts behavior, emotional state, and mental health. Some individuals also mix Vicodin with other substances, which further increases the risks.
“What we need to get across, is that anyone who takes Vicodin for any reason – whether it’s via prescription from their doctor, or illegal recreation use – is at risk of developing a very serious and potentially deadly addiction,” commented A Forever Recovery’s founder Per Wickstrom. “We also need to let people know that they should never go through Vicodin withdrawal alone, due to the typically intense symptoms. Expert guidance from a medical professional or drug withdrawal specialist is crucial.”
