It is rare that the person abusing prescription medication began taking these medications with the idea in mind of becoming an addict. In general terms, the person takes the medication to "feel better" physically, hoping they will gain some relief from their pain. Another effect of the medication is it provides people a feeling of "well being", which they have been lacking. In an attempt to reduce the pain even further and enhance the feeling of "well being", the individual begins to take additional medication. What happens is a tolerance to the drug is developed, so the person requires more and more medication. Soon, the feeling of "well being" can not be achieved, the pain although diminished is still present, but an addiction to the medication is now present.
If addicted, never discontinue the use of prescription medication on your own. There can be severe medical and psychological consequences. Please call Affordable Rehab of Austin at call (512) 253-7407 and we will assist you in locating a quality healthcare professional or detox program.
