Prescription Drug Addiction Is a Growing Threat
According to a 2020 report from the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA), approximately 16.1 million people reported misusing a prescription psychotherapeutic drug in the past year. About 4.8 million people reported misusing benzodiazepines within the past 12 months. Around 9.3 million people reported abusing prescription painkillers.
As a result, it’s imperative to get help if you know someone that is struggling with prescription drug addiction or you are battling it yourself. Keep in mind that the symptoms of prescription drug abuse are not always easy to see. They may include:
- The need to use more of the drug than you once were using to get the same level of relief
- Running out of medication before your next prescription is due
- Feeling agitated and apprehensive when you run out of medication
- The need to use the drug to get through the day
- Financial problems, work or school-related issues due to a focus on using the drug
If you think these symptoms describe what is happening to you or your loved one, take action. At Westwind Recovery®, our prescription drug addiction treatment program is available to help you right away.
