Concerned individuals, along with their equally concerned family members and friends who want to know the difference between someone who uses painkillers – and someone who likely has a painkiller abuse problem – should read the latest blog from Best Drug Rehabilitation.

“80 percent of the world’s prescription painkillers are taken by Americans,” commented Per Wickstrom, Best Drug Rehabilitation’s CEO. “And while most of these prescriptions are taken as directed by doctors, there’s a growing incidence of people who are being drawn into the unimaginably devastating world of addiction.”

According to the Best Drug Rehabilitation blog post, some signs that indicate a painkiller abuse problem include:

  • Increases in usage and dependency, which is often brought about because the body develops a tolerance and needs more of the painkiller to achieve the same painkilling effect
  • Neglecting responsibilities, such as those related to family, work, friends and other areas that previously were suitably maintained
  • A frenetic fear of “going off the drug” that can cause individuals to visit multiple doctors to find one who will write a prescription.
  • Adverse changes in health and appearance, as well as dramatic shifts in eating and sleeping habits.

“While each individual story of painkiller addiction is unique, the fact is that millions of people right this very minute can get on the road to recovery through inpatient treatment at an accredited and reputable facility,” added Per Wickstrom. “In addition to getting ‘round the clock care from caring and trained professionals, individuals will have the opportunity to re-build their lives in a safe, secure, confidential and non-judgemental environment. They’ll also have the chance to meet others who are on the road to recovery, and build friendships that last a lifetime. Painkiller addiction doesn’t happen overnight, and frankly, neither does recovery. However, make no mistake: recovery is possible, and it’s happening in treatment facilities across the country every day.”
