Chances are you, or someone you know, is struggling with addiction to prescription drugs. Maybe it’s your spouse, a relative, a friend, or a casual acquaintance. Maybe it’s you. Maybe you’re not even sure if the drug use has shifted from therapeutic to abusive. After prolonged use of an addictive substance, the brain virtually becomes “re-wired.” Addicts are not weak-willed; they have differences in the way their brain reacts to drugs. Once started, they often cannot stop without help. These are individuals who had no history of drug abuse or addiction. Rather, they first starting using prescribed drugs for legitimate medical problems, physical or emotional

Prescription Drug Addiction
Most people take medicines only for the reasons their doctors prescribe them. But an estimated 20 percent of people in Canada and the United States have used prescription drugs for nonmedical reasons. This is prescription drug abuse. It is a serious and growing problem. Experts don't know exactly why this type of drug abuse is increasing. The availability of drugs is probably one reason. Doctors are prescribing more drugs for more health problems than ever before. Online pharmacies make it easy to get prescription drugs without a prescription, even for youngsters.

Prescription Drug Rehab
Prescription drugs are rapidly becoming primary drugs of abuse in the United States and throughout the world. There are many commonly held misconceptions of the abuse potential for powerful substances such as oxycontin, because such substances can be obtained legally, and have legitimate use in the medical profession. Detox should be sought out for this dangerous and sometimes even fatal addiction.

Trends in Prescription Drug Abuse
Although prescription drug abuse affects many North Americans, some trends of concern can be seen among older adults, adolescents, and women. In addition, health care professionals - including physicians, nurses, pharmacists, dentists, anesthesiologists, and veterinarians - may be at increased risk of prescription drug abuse because of ease of access, as well as their ability to self-prescribe drugs. In spite of this increased risk, recent surveys and research in the early 1990s indicate that health care providers probably suffer from substance abuse, including alcohol and drugs, at a rate similar to rates in society as a whole, in the range of 8 to 12 percent.
