What do I do if I’ve had an overdose from prescription painkillers? People seeking rehab for painkillers are often not even addicts, they’ve just overdosed. One thing that commonly keeps people out of the treatment they need for painkiller abuse is being uncomfortable with the stereotypes of the drug addict. To go to drug rehab means to admit you have an addiction. But if your picture of what an addict is to you is someone who buys illicit drugs in back alleys and sleeps on the streets, you don’t match up with that!
Where can I go to help getting off my painkiller medication? Painkillers are a very interesting addiction because those who abuse them and end up addicted are often very different kinds of people than addicts of other drugs such as cocaine, heroin, or meth. With painkillers, it usually all starts with some kind of affliction—muscle aches and pains. And the painkillers are just meant to keep you from being inhibited by pain in your daily life. But the irony is that the body quickly grows dependent on painkillers to the point that it’s a problem in your life if you can’t continue using them. Prescription painkiller withdrawals are very challenging to overcome. So before you know it, you’re in worse shape than the original pains that you started taking the painkillers to numb. See if you’re suffering from any of these withdrawal symptoms.
What are the dangers of painkillers? Before you get any prescription to painkillers you should make sure to check with your doctor to get solid limitations on your dosage. Otherwise you’ll end up creating a lot more problems for yourself than you had to begin with. The only thing to do is to get into quality drug rehab and get your body free of toxins.
