Prescription Drugs Addiction. Also known as Over the counter drugs addiction. We are finding more and more people are getting addicted to prescription medication. Is it because the drugs are getting stronger, or the doctors are giving them out like smarties? Did you know that over 395,000 people are addicted to prescription medication in this country. That has got worse year on year. Do bear in mind, not all the statistics for people addicted to prescription medication are monitored. So I believe you could possibly double that figure. But that is just my prediction. I doubt we will ever know exactly.
How addictive are prescription drugs?
Some are highly addictive such as the opioids. I think what people forget is how addictive prescription drugs really are. And getting off them can be a nightmare, as with any addiction if not do correctly. It is also commonly reported that more people die worldwide from prescription drugs than people on illegal drugs. Now that is madness when you think they are there to get you well. The figures for prescription drugs rises year on year.
Prescription drugs in rehab centres
We get more people now addicted to prescription drugs in our residential rehab centres, than we ever did. I am not saying prescription drugs are dangerous. But they need to be monitored regally. If you are on any medication from your doctor, and they have not seem you for some time. Book an appointment for them to check your levels etc. They won’t mind doing this, as it is their job, and they don’t want you getting worse. That just puts a bigger strain on the NHS.
