Best Drug Rehabilitation, which offers treatment programs and believes that having family close by during a stay in rehab can make a big difference in whether or not the process is successful, is asking a critically important and timely question in its latest blog post: What are the most additive painkillers?

“Many people still believe that drug abuse and drug addiction only refer to illicit drugs, such as cocaine, heroin and so on,” commented Best Drug Rehabilitation’s CEO Per Wickstrom. “However, there is a prescription drug abuse problem happening in our country that is, without question, of epidemic proportions, and affecting people from all walks of like, and of all ages – from children to seniors.”

According to the Best Drug Rehabilitation blog post, opioids remain the most abused prescription painkillers. Opioids relieve pain by minimizing the pain signals in the brain, plus they can create a feeling of euphoria. However, the body requires more and more of the drug to achieve a desired state of physical and emotional wellness, which is what leads to a spiralling path of addiction. Some commonly used – and unfortunately, commonly abused – opioids include (but is not limited to):

  • Vicodin
  • Methadone
  • Dilaudid
  • Duragesic
  • Demerol
  • Percoce
  • Propoxyphene
  • Oxymorphone
  • Oxycodone HCL
  • Meperidine
  • Hydromorphone
  • Bitartrate
  • Fentanyl
  • Hydrocodone

Added Per Wickstrom: “Individuals who are addicted or are concerned that they may be heading down that road can get the professional, compassionate help they need through inpatient treatment programs. Their family members and loved ones who desperately want to help an addict can also call a qualified and certified treatment facility to learn how they can be part of the solution.”
